OUR WORK

Bare MINERALS

Bare MINERALS

THE CHALLENGE
bareMinerals’ entrance into the beauty space 20 years ago was nothing short of revolutionary – sparking a passion for mineral makeup that continues to grow today. In their first significant innovation since, the brand was looking to launch their first-ever liquid foundation. After ten years in the making, they came to JWALK hoping to break through the competitive clutter, gain a new audience and leverage even more loyalty from their existing customers.

THE SOLUTION
JWALK developed a complete 360° campaign to launch bareSkin, including commercials, print, digital, social media, events, international marketing, distributor and in-store creative. We began with an in-store teaser campaign, inviting consumers to ‘tell all’ in our confession booth and answer the question, ‘What would you give up for perfect skin?’ When the footage went viral, as part of our wider pre-launch, JWALK got to work educating consumers on the benefits of bareSkin and its ingredients. Fans spread the news and by the time the campaign launched in May, across multiple channels including TV, digital, press and print, the customers were primed and ready to buy.

THE RESULTS
bareSkin was an overnight success, becoming the number #1 liquid foundation in Ulta and the third bestseller in Sephora – selling 29% above its projected sales, for both the foundation and its brush, within six weeks of its launch.

bebe

bebe

THE CHALLENGE
bebe’s dwindling relevance with their core consumer was drastically affecting sales and brand reputation. Looking to reignite passion for the brand they came to JWALK to redefine the brand and make an impact in the marketplace.

THE SOLUTION
JWALK identified a territory that bebe could really own – Sexy. We created a powerful conceptual platform showcasing the bebe girl’s after-hours adventures, which resulted in one of the industry’s most exciting 360° campaigns. We told the story of the 9pm to 5am girl, kicking off with an unbranded pre-launch, “The best part of the day is the night”, capturing the imagination of women all over the world. The unique narrative-driven campaign was not only instantly recognizable with its hand-written script, but it also told the story of model Nina Agdal’s 9-5 escapades, giving consumers a sexy, rebellious heroine they could aspire to become, wearing bebe.

THE RESULTS
The teaser campaign was launched within 30 days and the full rebranding campaign took JWALK just six months from ideation to completion.
The campaign’s unbranded pre-launch leveraged more than nine million impressions, while JWALK’s launch party attracted the likes of Leonardo DiCaprio, Coco Rocha and other key fashion influencers.The campaign itself garnered a further 13 million impressions; bringing the online total to more than 22 million digital impressions and 300 million print impressions. bebe saw a 50% increase in mobile site engagement, a 23% increase in e-commerce sales and a 50% rise in bebe stock in the first six months of the campaign.

LACOSTE

LACOSTE

THE CHALLENGE
Lacoste was a brand in search of a jumpstart – a heritage company whose history had been diluted and whose cultural relevancy was stuck in the past. When Lacoste appointed JWALK as their North American agency of record they were badly in need of a new identity and a fresh, hip new American audience.

THE SOLUTION
Connecting each of Lacoste’s platforms in an integrated 360° effort utilizing retail, digital, experiential, and social spheres, we began by launching their new label, Lacoste L!ve. Partnering with brands including Just Jared, The Greenwich Hotel, Patrón, Deleón, Nobu, and The Standard Hotel, we created everything from a digitally integrated music series, art activations and scavenger hunts to pop-up shops and branded lounges across the country.

THE RESULTS
Lacoste gained more than 10 million digital impressions in 2012 and more than 30 million in 2013. They reported a 40% increase in sales in the first year in their Soho store alone and the brand finally found kudos with powerful influencers and the kind of youthful demographic they’d been searching for. Over three years, Lacoste saw an overall 64% increase in sales, and the crocodile and its makers shot back to relevancy with a renewed, fresh, youthful appeal.

THE CHALLENGE

THE SOLUTION
Producing a brand reel for the hotel, we created a viscerally thrilling visual language that inspired the creative and kept the concept alive. JWALK was also responsible for developing the company’s internal communication and a sharp new identity for their new club, The Cosmopolitan Social Club.

THE RESULTS
The hotel’s internal culture was cited ‘best-in-class’ and the Just the Right Amount of Wrong campaign continued on its award-winning trajectory.
