Describe the challenges and key objectives
Our challenge was to get an airline noticed in the incredibly noisy holiday season. So we adopted the approach of something lots of people are interested in during the holidays—catalogues and gift guides. The Flyer’s Collection catalogue featured a high-end line of custom-made products that made flying any airline a bit more like the better experience you get on JetBlue. Our objective was to give holiday travellers a bit of a laugh while still reminding them JetBlue is the better airline.
Describe the brief from the client
Tell travellers in the busy holiday travel season that JetBlue is a better airline then the competition.
Describe how you arrived at the final design
JetBlue’s custom leather seats and free TVs are fancy, so we made our catalogue fancy. The entire look and feel was designed to be premium - from the thick-jawed model to the finish of our custom designed Robot. The end product reinforced the fact that the entire JetBlue experience was superior to what other airlines were offering.
Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The first print of catalogues was snatched up immediately from pop-up store and blogged about online. We made the first ever media buy in NYC towncars, reaching 150,000 people on the way to the airport. And hundreds of customers called JetBlue asking if they could buy our fictional products.
