Reece Bathrooms launches bathroom planning tool campaign via Trout Creative Thinking

Reece Bathrooms has launched a campaign on the back of The Block’s latest season, bringing on board a bathroom planning tool via Trout Creative Thinking.

The announcement:

Capitalising on The Block’s gigantic 2022 season, Reece Bathrooms has embarked on a major campaign to launch its innovative Imagin3D digital bathroom visualisation tool for homemakers. Both the tool and creative are led by Trout Creative Thinking, with support to bring the campaign to life from production company Sherpa.

A collaborative effort between Trout Creative Thinking and Reece Bathrooms, Imagin3D gives renovators the ability to create and plan their dream bathroom for free using real products, materials, surfaces and colours. Visualising a bathroom look gives renovators confidence in their choices, before committing to buying products or booking trades, and helps to avoid making expensive style mistakes.

The launch campaign includes a TVC, in-store presence and digital marketing overseen by Trout, in addition to integration into this season of Nine’s The Block where contestants use the tool to plan their bathrooms.

Software company Thoughtworks assisted with developing the digital platform and the tool’s functionality is illustrated in the TVC using dynamic VFX crafted by Soma.

Already, Imagin3D is proving valuable for home renovators embarking on their bathroom journey; with one in five Imagin3D webpage visitors signing up to use the tool.

Imagin3D is available via the Reece Bathrooms website, and is being used in Reece Bathrooms showrooms across the country.

Trout creative director Anthony Bologna says, “As Australia’s only living brands agency, Trout is dedicated to servicing brands within the homemaker, renovation, build and construction sectors, to shape how we live and work.”

“Launching Imagin3D in the 25th year of our partnership with Reece is a huge accomplishment and Sherpa was the perfect partner to bring this to life. Creative collaboration across agency, client and supplier teams really open doors for businesses to engage customers by creating better brand experiences.”

Sherpa producer Elizabeth Malcher says: “It was such a pleasure working with the teams at Trout and Reece on our third collaborative campaign this year. We were able to do a creative production deep dive and get to the heart of their messaging.”
