Describe the brief from the client
To launch the new PS 3 game, DC Universe Online, in which you can create your own superhero or villain by choosing powers, abilities and, of course, your custom suit

Describe the challenges and key objectives
The challenge was to make a design great enough to reach fans:
Comic Fans - Video Games Fans - MMO players Fans

The design also had another challenge: to mix two worlds: the old fashion look of a tailor shop with a modern and cool touch of Playstation

Describe how you arrived at the final design
The Tailor shop´s corporate identity scheme was created based on artistic printing, a decorative style born in England at the end of the 19th century. Using the appropriate typography on each piece.

Clearly the style Mr. Lee was looking for when he open his shop in 1934.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
"Mr. Lee´s tailor shop is our most successful launch campaign since I`ve been working at Playstation."

Francisco Sayans.
Interactive Media Manager.

The Madrid shop was more successful than Gotham city's. The appointments were all filled in just a few hours and hundreds of suits were ordered.

The earn media represented 4000% Return On Investment to the brand. And we are talking about news content, not advertising.

The typography made a crucial part in the design of the whole campaign.
