English Description
Wedding Republic are a new online gift registry, who were in need of a brand identity that would differentiate them from their traditional wedding registry competitors. So instead of an expected frilly, serif-y design treatment, a bold, simple identity was created that instantly invoked the feeling of when a young couple find love and begin their lives together – perfectly paying off the brand’s themeline of ‘Power To The Couple’. With a limited budget, online animated films were then created about the two ‘i’ characters from the logo. These films followed Ian and Irene, who meet, fall in love, and get engaged – mirroring the experience of many young couples. The films were deliberately risqué, to encourage passability and generate PR for the new company. Upon seeing the films, viewers were then encouraged to visit Ian and Irene’s facebook pages, where they could see the relationship play out further. In a very short period of time, the films created positive word of mouth about Wedding Republic, and the brand were contacted for interviews about the films by publications from both the wedding and marketing/design industries.
