Client: Astrup/Trivantage
Project: New market entry

“Great looking” and durable” aren’t always synonymous with designer upholstery fabrics in the hospitality industry. We created a bold and irresistible direct marketing initiative called “Stomp”, which invited recipients to test this high fashion high performance fabric for themselves. with a directive to “place foot here, stomp down hard” on the cover. The recipient opened the mailer to find a packet of ketcheup on one side and a fabric swatch on the other. With tongue-in-cheek approach, it dared anyne to smash ketchup on the designer fabric. Simple cleaning instructions were included for the disbelievers.

As designers actually performed the ketchup test, they reached out to the client to share their stories. A little risky, but the beginning of a perfect social campaign.

THE RESULT: exceeded average response rate and activated new customer relationships. 

Astrup/Trivantage is an international supplier of specialty fabrics and hardware used in the manufacture of awnings, structures, signs, casual furniture, tents, umbrellas, marine products (interior, tops and covers) for residential, commercial and architectural applications.
