Competition in the mobile electronics category was intense — Best Buy, Good Guys, Circuit City, Magnolia… Our challenge back in 1994 was to re-invent the Car Toys brand to differentiate from competitors and efficiently communicate their advantages to consumers.

  • Developed a new brand identity. Updated the logo, created a slogan and jingle, developed value propositions and a unique messaging style to ensure their ads stood out from the crowd.
  • Developed a comprehensive and integrated marketing strategy, with data-driven messaging and strategic media plan.
  • Conducted consistent research to monitor the growth of brand awareness and preference.
  • Periodic brand refreshes over the years keep the message exciting and relevant, including brand style guides to keep all customer touch points consistent.
  • Evolution of the core brand promises as the rise of online shopping has impacted the balance of key advantages.
