barrettSF Compares Adirondack Chairs to Popsicles for Cost Plus


By thesanfranciscoegotist / /

barrettSF is launching its third campaign for Cost Plus World Market – “Designed for Summer.” For the OOH, the creative team developed 16 visual concepts that juxtapose individual items from Cost Plus World Market’s outdoor collection with similar-looking summer objects.

“We started concepting in winter, so to get in the right headspace we surrounded ourselves with iconic summer imagery for inspiration,” said Byron Wages, Senior Art Director at barrettSF. “As we did, we noticed a lot of parallels between the colors and shapes of items in the collection, and summer itself. The campaign grew from there.”

    This concept has been done to death. SFMOMA just did a campaign with this concept a few months ago. Target's done this before too. The tag line is pretty uninspired.."More than affordable" ??? So...their stuff is "Better than cheap" ?? And finally how do the TV spots dovetail with the Outdoor campaign? They have nothing to do with each other. Head scratches all around. Come on Barrett SF thought you were More than Hacks.
