STARWAX IS LAUNCHING A CAMPAIGN THAT DISTURBS
Starwax and its new agency Buzzman decided to do things spotlessly for the housekeeping brand created in France in 1946.
A first large-scale press and poster campaign that establishes a reason for being on top of the new brand signature: “As obsessive as you”.
A campaign set to disturb any self-respecting cleanliness freak, on air as of 1st July.
In a world where “average” is tempting, Starwax claims and celebrates the virtues of cleanliness and care. Through its hyper-specialised top-of-the-range products, the brand positions itself as an expert in home maintenance and wishes to highlight a community that is too often judged and criticised: ‘cleanliness freaks’ . Because yes, at Starwax, being passionate about efficiency is not a bad flaw, it is about pride.
And because cleanliness and care are often hidden in the detail, the brand is launching a campaign that is “disturbing” for any self-respecting cleanliness enthusiast.
Discover this poste campaign in Paris on 1st July and in Bordeaux on 4th July, supported by a social media activation and a press campaign. This campaign will be followed by a second national poster campaign at the end of August.
Starwax is a French brand created in Lille in 1946 by two brothers who decided to start manufacturing wax for wood maintenance. It takes its name from their first product, which, as a tribute to America, used the English word “wax” instead of the French equivalent “cire”.
Care of interior flooring, furniture or textiles, maintenance of chimneys or pipes, cleanliness of the kitchen and hygiene of bathrooms and toilets, as well as exterior maintenance of the terrace and garden furniture… Starwax is today a leading brand, offering a complete range of products and maintenance accessories to help clean and take care of the house.
Efficiency and quality are the key words of the brand. Starwax products are carefully developed by our experts to ensure optimal performance on a given problem. It is after numerous tests and controls that each formula is approved and validated. Design, testing, manufacturing and packaging are carried out in the Noyelles-les-Seclin factory, near Lille.
