Insights, Strategy & the Idea
The client asked for a purchase gift to promote the brand’s concept “Happy colours. Happy life”, something that should live beyond the offer itself as a piece of communication, for those who bought ink and everyone else. The insight was to offer something that would make the painting process more fun. We thought of turning something bad into good: the inevitable ink splatters. In other words, let’s make painting a bit more happy.

Creative Execution
We came up with a t-shirt. A different one: it’s not finished yet. We’ve selected the main colours of Dyrup’s catalogue and illustrated funny stories that needed ink stains of those colours in order to be completed. The more stains they got, the better and funnier they looked. This t-shirt contributed to make something as boring as painting a little more fun and ink splatters would no longer be a bad thing. Now they’re welcome. This makes all the sense for a brand that wants to spread happiness.

Results and Effectiveness
Painting walls became fun, and unlike most advertising t-shirt’s, this one was really desirable and wearable by everyone. That’s why they ran out, and every time someone wore it, the concept “Happy colours. Happy life” was communicated and its awareness soared higher.
