Ecostore asks adults and children to picture the future in first brand campaign

Ecostore has just launched its first brand campaign, including a TVC which asks children and adults to picture the future.

With the help of mural artist Ghost Patrol, two large-scale pieces were created to bring the adults’ and children’s thoughts to life.

DDB was the ad’s creative agency, while The Sweet Shop produced the video.

Ecostore marketing director Jemma Whiten, who took up the role in April this year after returning home to live in New Zealand, explains that the company’s vision is to create “a world where safe, sustainable, ethical products are the norm.

“Although our products have always been created with tomorrow in mind, we wanted to gain customer insight and perspective on how they perceive what their future world looks like,” says Whiten.

“It was a risky approach as we had no idea what our real talent would say, but it paid off as the adults all gave a very similar, jaded view of the world which contrasted with the kids’ optimistic and imaginative view that anything is possible,” says Damon Stapleton, DDB chief creative officer.
