Marketing Design
February 27, 2023

Project Brief

Oatly, a plant-based food and beverage company, is launching an urban ad campaign to increase brand awareness and drive sales. The campaign will utilize bus wraps, bus stop signs, and taxi ad platforms in the target cities. You've been asked to continue the graphic and advertising design work from an existing, ongoing urban ad campaign.

The graphics for this project should align with Oatly's existing advertising style, using bold and vibrant colors, fun shapes, and a pop-art design aesthetic. The tone should be lighthearted, playful, and approachable, reflecting Oatly's brand personality.

The marketing team hasn't determined which city they plan to roll the ads out in next, but usually choose the city based on an upcoming event, like a concert or major sports match, which offers more relevance from a copywriting perspective.

The task at hand is to design and present concepts for three to five ads that either exist separately or work well when displayed as a group. The ads should be designed to fit in any of the following locations:

  • Bus Wraps or Signage
  • Subway Door Wraps
  • Taxi LED Displays or Wraps
  • Bus Stop Signs
  • Other Innovative Ideas!

Designing Signs

When designing a building or retail sign, here are some key factors to consider:

  • Visibility: The sign should be visible from a distance and in different lighting conditions. Consider the sign's size, location, and contrast with the background to make sure it stands out and is easy to read.
  • Legibility: The sign should be easy to read and understand, even at a glance. Use clear fonts and avoid overly decorative or intricate designs that could be hard to read.
  • Branding: The sign should reflect the company's brand and its values. Incorporate the brand's colors, fonts, and imagery into the design to create a cohesive and recognizable look.
  • Material and maintenance: Choose durable and weather-resistant materials that can withstand the elements and require minimal maintenance. This isn't as critical for this mock project, but is good to know for the future.
