About the client

CZC is the number-two e-shop selling electronics on the Czech market. It occupies a strong position and has loyal customers. But this was not true when we started.

How to restore a brand’s pride
and set it apart from the rest

3 years ago, the brand was perceived as a grey mouse. Without emotions. It used a C-letter avatar, actually all competitors used cartoon characters. This had to be changed.

A brand strategy of geek
employees never seen before

We wanted CZC to be authentic. When we found out that the employees were a bunch of geeks, we decided play this as a one of the brand’s strengths. The employees became the creative leitmotiv and main stars of all ads.

How we implemented the strategy

We cooperated with the company’s leaders to introduce brand to each of its 250 employees.
We developed every campaign together with employees from all departments. We call this co-creating.

We kick-started the brand with a simple campaign and new merchandising

The interest of employees, business partners and customers in the marchandising was so big that we gave away more than 3500 t-shirts in the first year alone.

4 years, 14 campaigns together

Christmas 2017 campaign – revealed that, even though they are number #2, they try twice as hard as the other guys.

Autumn 2017 campaign – proved that adults should never stop playing.

Spring 2017 campaign – showed how the individual employees of CZC love electronics… because being a geek is a lifestyle.

Christmas 2016 campaign – highlighted the company’s value of reasonable prices by promoting great products.

Spring 2016 campaign – produced in the ultimate “geek den,” from which 1 customer would win all the electronics.

Christmas 2015 campaign – promoted geek Christmas…you know, carpselfies, fairy tales in 4K and that kind of stuff.

Brand building is a long distance
run, but worth every step

Brand building isn’t immediately effective. It takes years for employees adopt, live and promote a new brand image. But eventually, they do, and we were proud to help kickstart the process and grow the brand.
