Creative Mellen has worked with TuffWrap over the years to develop marketing campaigns that help build some buzz and connect with their audiences. This year, we extended last year’s superhero campaign to speak directly to their customers.

The overall campaign theme “Suit Up with TuffWrap” focused on the benefits of partnering with TuffWrap for interior protection projects and how these benefits relate to each type of customer. Based on data from last year’s campaign and client insights, we created a cast of superheroes, based on their customer’s specific persona.

Personas were broken into four major categories:

For these customer personas, we created superhero-type characters they could relate to. We characterize them as “everyday” heroes. Illustrated by our talented partner Paul Lange, these characters represent the cross-section of those customers who would benefit from TuffWrap’s services and products. This approach allows TuffWrap to market each type of customer directly and highlight TuffWrap’s interior protection as an essential part of the construction project.

Von Maur: How an American Department Store Dared to Do Things Differently—by author Melinda Pradarelli.

This was an exciting book design for Creative Mellen. Working with the von Maur family namely, Jim, Chuck, and Dick throughout the process was an honor. The history and knowledge of their rise throughout the years is a real American story. Scouring through archives, visiting libraries and museums, and taking photos of old relics was a great journey through their history.

As one reviewer says, “This is an excellent book, well written, and chocked-full of beautiful photos of Von Maur’s history. As a customer since childhood, it was interesting to see the evolution of my favorite department store. Von Maur does it right and their story reads like a love letter to their customers. I am buying it for all my family for Christmas this year!”

Special thanks to Melinda, the entire von Maur family, Vivienne Holloway, and other staff that helped us tell this great story.
