The Ask

Adobe came to us (aka the NSAC schools) and asked: how can a company such as Adobe, which is traditionally known for creative software, begin to raise awareness for a B2B Ad tech, the Advertising Experience Cloud for Advertising? And how does it break through the walled-gardens of Ad Tech?

The Challenge

Adobe isn't well known in the ad tech space. Actually, it isn't known at all, since the product we're asked to raise awareness for is a new package that combines old and new software previously offered through Adobe's various brand structures. Thus, how do we raise awareness in an already competitive market?

The Solution

Creating a campaign that builds upon Adobe's creative heritage, while positioning Adobe as the next evolution of what Ad Tech could be.

The Highlights

Favorite pages out of our 20-page plans book.

Reflection

Winning the national competition was a testament to the dedication and skill of all my team members to not only work on a difficulty B2B case, but to do so in a pandemic that changed all of our plans.

The work we accomplished for Adobe was not only externally recognized, but internally it help me truly understand the work that goes behind an advertising campaign, and the level of passion and dedication it takes to pull of something spectacular.
