Media placement: Shopping Bags - Görtz Children's Chain Stores - 10.12.2009

Describe the challenges and key objectives
With the Görtz animalistic bag design, the customer does not only take a couple new shoes home but also one of five various lovingly designed bag masks to play with. The main objective was to create a shopping bag with an extra benefit inviting children to play and stimulating their fantasy thus turning it into an exceptional instrument to promote sales. After signing up for the 'Görtz account card program' the customer could order the collection or take it right away by signing up immediately.

Describe the brief from the client
The task was to create special shopping bags for the Görtz children’s chain stores in order to acquire new members for the 'Görtz account card program'.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
Simple shopping bags were transformed into lovingly designed fantasy stimulating game-masks. The focal point of the design was not on the exterior, but rather on the initially covered interior of the folding elements in the front and rear. They are turned into five different animalistic flip-faces, which invite children to play. Typography is the active design element for these bags that dominates the creation. Each initial has a funny animal figure and, in a collection, they are a band of beasts.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
1.600.000 produced bags for over 240 chain stores throughout Germany were sold out in just four weeks. The promotion had been planned to last for at least six weeks. Görtz runs Europe’s biggest shoe chain store in Hamburg, in which over 32'000 bags were handed out every day. Further bags had to be produced as quickly as possible in order to make the promotion last longer. The sales of children’s shoes were three times higher during that period.
