THE NORTH FACE
SPRING / SUMMER 2014
The North Face® is known as one of the world’s greatest outdoor brands, with a fully established presence across the winter sports sector. Our goal was to show consumers that The North Face® should be their year-round brand of choice. To do this, we needed to bring spring and summer to life like never before.
This required a strategy that would capture the excitement and potential of the brand, long after the snow has melted. For our message to be instantly effective, we needed to raise engagement with The North Face consumers to a new level...
LONGER DAYS ARE BACK
