Millennials tend to shun canned soup. Instead, they seek out grocery items they can feel good about, typically on the store’s perimeter. Campbell’s challenge to DDW: How do we cultivate a new generation of soup lovers?
First, we wrote a compelling brand story from scratch, tapping into travel foodie trends and the food truck craze. Then we created a whole new way to shop, eat and experience soup with unconventional, ready-to-eat soup pouches. (Farewell, BPA.) Each soup took on its own persona, with a young soul mugging for the camera and an intriguing new recipe.
The fresh design and concept immediately struck a cultural nerve—including a shout-out from Stephen Colbert.
