Evans Cycles are a household brand with stores across the United Kingdom. They compete with large online retailers, local bike shops and Halfords, but what they bring to the market that is unique is a combination of the buying power to get great deals for customers with physical shops where customers can come for advice and to collect, and a passion to rival a local shop.
Studio Kidd worked closely woth the Evans Cycles team to plan and create a national campaign for advertising, digital placements and in-store displays. Our aim was to express what riding bikes was all about: fun. We combined that with a nostalgic feel of summer telling relatible stories in a witty way.
We want to tell engaging stories that remind people of the fun of cycling in the summertime so we identified things that each story must include in order to connect in the right way.
How: warmth, nostalgia and light
How: bright colour and quirky
How: Intrinsic to story and enabling
We identified some topics that people universally identify with summer:
The beach / pool
So we identified 4 stories that associate cycling with those topics:
Riding to the beach
Earning the treat
Adventures near and far
Learning to connect
The images we created really give that feeling of summer nostalgia and capture the fun of cycling. We added in a commuter to the mix and ended up with a really powerful, flexible brand campaign that delivers in store and online.
