DESIGNBOTE – The Stuttgart-based company has been supporting Knauf Bauprodukte GmbH & Co KG since the end of last year. The agency is now presenting its first serve for the new customer with a powerful and authentic campaign concept for the highlight product line EASYPUTZ.

The Knauf brand has not been part of the customer portfolio of the brand agency Von Helden und Gestalten (VHUG for short) for a long time. After successful product positioning, the creatives are now presenting their first campaign concept for the highlight product line EASYPUTZ. The aim is to give EASYPUTZ a new, more modern face and to position it as a leading product in the competitive environment.

To this end, VHUG has developed a powerful and authentic campaign concept that impresses with a strong central idea, a lively, bright design and strong-character key visuals. The project also includes a campaign film, social media measures and the design and technical implementation of an EASYPUTZ landing page. In addition, the agency has developed a digital marketing concept to specifically address design-savvy DIY users as well as female and younger target groups. Strong characters are the focus of communication, presenting their personal lifestyle in a trendy way and representing individual EASYPUTZ Compact Colors. These are pre-dosed, highly concentrated, non-dusting granulated color pigments in ten shades to create natural color worlds. The motifs can be seen on Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest, among others, and the agency has also placed SEA, Google Display Ads and Native Ads via Outbrain.

“Together with VHUG, we were able to develop a targeted campaign for our highlight product line, which enables us to achieve impressive differentiation in the competitive environment.”

The professionalism and friendly cooperation with the VHUG team were a decisive success factor throughout the entire project," says Fabian Zabel, Marketing Manager Knauf Bauprodukte GmbH
