DÜSSELDORF-BASED AGENCY WINS DIY COMMUNICATION PITCH FOR THE TOP BRAND FOR BUILDING MATERIALS
Düsseldorf, 15 December 2015 – The recent agency search of Knauf Bauprodukte GmbH & Co. KG has ended in a great success for Kontrast. The market leader for building materials chose the Düsseldorf-based Agency for Communication Services from among numerous competitive pitches. Kontrast prevailed against several renowned agencies, and their first step will be to realize a campaign for the hardware and home improvement centres across Germany.
The campaign includes the entire spectrum of marketing and communication along the customer journey – from activating brand and product communication outside stores, both offline and online, and all information and sales materials in DIY centres to the live shopper experience of the brand world. The focus of the campaign lies on emotional brand management at the Point of Sale. For the Knauf campaign Kontrast will prioritize inspiration in all aspects of modernization and renovations, as well as the ideal orientation of the DIY customer and significant improvement of consulting services at the outlets.
In charge of the account at the agency is the team of Anja Grote-Lutter (Managing Director), with Martin Kraus (Client Service Director), Kay Burkhard Gosch (Executive Consultant), Thomas Keil (Creative Director), Petra Skiber (Creative Supervisor) and Susanne Henning (Senior Project Manager).
The contacts at the customer side are Peter Schmieder (Head of Marketing & Communication) and Dominik Pätzold (Marketing Manager DIY)
