Describe the brief from the client:

With 4-6 new collections pitched each year, Levi’s® must always be relevant, show originality and authenticity. The new collection in Jul 2010, called Square Cut Collection, was named after classic pop songs with different jean “wash” styles.Teens in HK do not particularly appreciate classic pop songs. They are also multi-tasking and gadget-oriented. So the challenge was to put jeans and music together, in a way that fully engaged our audience with the brand, while driving business growth and market leadership. Instead of using traditional one way media, we created a non-traditional consumer engagement strategy to ensure the focused messaging.

Creative Execution:

Levi’s® target audiences are HK teens between 15-24. Jeans are a must-have item for them, but they have much more choices than before. They are also gadget-oriented and multi-tasking. So in order to engage them, the idea must be new, multidimensional and interactive. Soundwash is a new concept and the unique Soundwashing machine is a completely new technology we invented. Also, we extended this idea into packaging where we created limited edition boxes in the format of laundry detergent boes. The idea also extended across online – the first ever online Soundwash Laundry, and mobile – a new iPhone Soundwash game app.

Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective.

We developed a campaign around the idea of “Soundwashing”. We created a multidimensional and interactive experience combining music and self-expression in a unique way. The basic concept behind is: choose your style of Square Cut jeans and “Soundwash” it with your favorite music using the Soundwashing Machine – a completely new technology we invented. We put these new machines in a specially built Soundwash Laundry in a main shopping mall in Hong Kong where our audiences love to hang out. The idea extended across packaging, print, in-store, online and mobile.

Describe the results in as much detail as possible.

In just 4 days, more than 10,000 people visited the Soundwash Laundromat. From August 5-8, 2010 Silvercord Levi’s® store traffic was up by 85% and the number of transactions increased by 66%. Overall sales at Silvercord Levi’s® store were up 80% and nearby store sales were boosted 57% from the previous week. The special edition package sell-through rate was up 125%. The campaign generated more than HK$2.5 million in PR coverage.
