Romanian independent agency created the first brand image for Baneasa Shopping City – “Live beautiful”. The campaign, that runs between September 2nd – November 11th, aims to change the way communication takes place within the commercial centers category.
Baneasa Shopping City is the biggest commercial center in Romania in terms of income and, since its launch in 2008, had a solid and constant growth, reaching to over 50,000 visitors during week days and over 80,000 in week-ends.
The campaign aims to consolidate brand’s image, recognizing its community and opening a dialog with all those that come to Baneasa Shopping City.
I don’t know a person that didn’t visit until now Baneasa Shopping City. And all those we spoke with, people invited to the qualitative studies we organized, friends or acquaintances each of us have, told us the same thing – ‘I come here because it is different and it is a place for people like us. I come here when I want to feel good, to spoil myself shopping, to live beautiful experiences, eat well, to see quality movies or shows and mainly because I know I’ll be around civilized people that have good taste’. That was where the communication idea “Live beautiful” came from, synthesizing the desire of Romanian middle class to enjoy a better life, with optimism and joy
The campaign includes two steps, identifying the community and inviting it to dialogue.
For the first stage, the agency aimed to show which are the loyal visitors of Baneasa Shopping City and chose a few of them, different typologies, that were invited to be brand’s ambasadors: Alina Vilcu (architect), Catalin Opritescu (photographer and creator of lightoholic.com), Alina Dascalescu (stylist) andAndrei Stanciu (actor). They became the representatives of Baneasa Shopping City’s community and detailed, in outdoor, indoor and online executions, what it means to them to live beautiful, not only though the professional and personal life perspectives, but also through what one wears, eats, sees, cultivates his creativity, spirit, passions and the ways Baneasa Shopping City answers to these searches.
