Synopsis:
The work is from Y&R North America, and the first wave of the campaign – including the new “Forged by the Sea” brand platform – will launch at the Army-Navy game on 12/9.
· The campaign is an opportunity for the Navy to reach Centennials as they enter recruitment-eligible age -- to build awareness of the brand, to evolve perception of the Navy’s purpose, to define what sets the Navy apart from other branches, and to demonstrate the wide range of career opportunities they offer.
· The new platform titled, “Forged by the Sea” reflects the Navy’s identity in two ways: the Navy itself is forged by the sea, and the individuals who are part of the Navy are forged by the sea.
· Following extensive research, Y&R and the Navy found that while there’s nearly universal awareness of the Navy as a brand, there’s very little understanding of the Navy’s actual mission, reach and influence.
o Centennials see the Navy as strongly tied to defense and combat, but in reality, the Navy gives Centennials opportunities that they would never have otherwise – to go on adventures, to discover new places and opportunities, and to develop careers across disciplines.
o The new brand platform / creative highlights the variety of opportunities the Navy offers, while showing the elements of the Navy’s identity that differentiate it from other military branches and companies – including the power, mystique and magic of the sea.
o The research and strategy define the Navy as an explorer and discovery brand, giving its members the chance to go on adventures and have meaningful experiences.
· The campaign builds on these findings and insights throughout the new brand identity, tagline, and creative work.
