With the release of three new Beats Studio Buds colorways, the Beats team came to SSS looking to create a campaign that led with color and captured the attention of a fashion-oriented female audience.
Honing in on Gen Z's affinity for switching up their style, we positioned color as a tool for self-expression. And with our audience's love of gaming in mind, we created the 'Choose Your Player' campaign, utilizing the character menu at the start of a video game as a metaphor for defining your style. With this campaign, starring Kaia Gerber, we brought each colorway to life through the lens of iconic Y2K video games, applying the creative direction across OOH, product video, and BTS capture.
SSS partnered with photographer Craig McDean for the OOH campaign, capturing Kaia as three different characters, each with a distinct energy that played off the colorways and overall gaming theme. SSS led the creative direction, designed the graphic system that frames the photography, and created custom wordmarks for each colorway.
