The Drum Creative Awards are here to fly the flag for creativity in the midst of the digital revolution
Advertising agency Humanaut has launched a national ad campaign for Brooklyn-based home furnishings retailer West Elm. The integrated effort features a 30-second TV commercial, five 15-second web spots, banner ads and social media. This is West Elm’s first-ever TV campaign and Humanaut’s first work for the brand.
'Get House Proud' is about celebrating those seemingly small moments in your life that actually feel like huge victories on your journey to expressing your personal style at home, as an adult. In the tongue-in-cheek TV spot, a narrator leads viewers through a series of slow-motion scenes where homes — and West Elm customers — are transformed by key furniture pieces, such as a mid-century modern dresser, white linen sofa and a sustainably sourced coffee table.
Social media will carry the hashtag #mywestelm, which customers regularly use when sharing pictures of their homes proudly featuring their West Elm furniture and decor.
