IAG deploys flexibility in a new campaign
IAG has partnered with design studio Bear Meets Eagle On Fire to launch ROLLiN ‘, a new flexible auto insurance brand designed for young independent clients.
Backed by a fun 60-second spot, the new brand promises not to tie customers down. Their monthly offer offers freedom. Freedom as in Larry, a giant ball that has nothing to hold it back.
IAG and BMEOF worked together to craft the brand and the creative design – from identity building to product communications design.
Initiative, IAG’s new media partner, worked on media.
“We see ROLLiN ‘as a growth engine for our business. Being able to build a brand from scratch is a real career highlight. Doing it with BMEOF founder Micah Walker and his team made it even more special, this brand is as much his vision as ours, ”said Brent Smart, IAG CMO.
“Thanks to everyone who worked so hard to make this a reality in such a short space of time, we can’t wait to see Rollin ‘in the world. “
There, Larry, a rolling, trouble-free character who freestyle on the ’90s Digital Underground classic, “Humpty Dance”, walks around his neighborhood. The spot was directed by Andreas Nilsson at Revolver.
As part of ROLLiN’s contemporary graphic identity, Bear Meets Eagle On Fire collaborated with Rotterdam-based typography designers Studio Dumbar. The idea was to communicate the flexibility of the brand by incorporating kinetic movement throughout the character creation and advertising campaign.
An ongoing series of animators and 3D artists have also been brought in to collaborate on various elements including the website and social media; something the brand will continue to do. The campaign was launched on Sunday, November 7.
“It’s a dream project for us – helping to name and build a brand from design to communication just isn’t something you get to do very often. Many thanks to everyone who cared about them and put so much effort into this area, ”said Walker, Founder of BMEOF.
