People are afraid of cold winter. The Canadian Outdoors brand, Canada Goose, was born in 1957 for the Canadian Arctic Guards, researchers and explorers of the scientific institutes of the polar regions, and those working in the extreme weather conditions. This brand became popular under the slogan of freeing people from the cold. The current ad about the Canada Goose Light Weight Down Jacket emphasizes its core feature with the phrase of “Where warm can take you” as well as its light weight. In sum, the ad emphasizes that the jacket is warm and light.
The current ad with the magnificent nature of Canada’s Avalon Peninsula conveys how warm the Canada Goose jackets are. However, will this add lead Korean customers to buy the jacket? Korea is quite cold in winter but not as cold as polar regions. Canada Goose Ad needs to prove why its jacket is valuable to Korean customers.
We have changed the background of the current advertisement from nature to city. The current advertisement is of interest to mountaineers but may not attract urban dwellers. While doing so, we tried not to dilute the unique brand image. We also newly generated a phrase, Beyond Boundaries, to break the existing frame and get close to Korean customers.
