Warehouse Stationary comes to the rescue in newly launched TV campaign via DDB NZ

Screen Shot 2018-10-17 at 7.08.54 am.jpgWarehouse Stationery has launched a new spot Stationery Ranger, the first piece of work in an SME-focused campaign developed by DDB New Zealand.

Marking the start of a new approach for Warehouse Stationery, the TVC brings to life the 'business time' feeling, moments when stuff happens, great is created and a bit of magic is in the works.
 
The 30" spot follows a common dilemma, there's never any Blu Tack in the office. The call goes out from the printing room and the Stationery Ranger, riding a Blu Tack stallion, saves the day.

A simple solution, touching on the sense of achievement and satisfaction felt when properly equipped with the right stationery.
 
DDB's executive creative director, Shane Bradnick, says the Stationery Ranger is an imaginative piece of work and a change of pace for Warehouse Stationery.
 
Says Bradnick: "By creating the 'business time' feeling, this work taps into the fire that drives small business owners, the 'I've got this' attitude that makes things happen.
 
"With an injection of humour and quirkiness, the spot is a change of style for Warehouse Stationery. We're looking forward to seeing the growth that results as the campaign rolls out."
 
Jonathan Waecker, chief marketing officer at The Warehouse Group, says Warehouse Stationery is looking forward to connecting with Kiwis SMEs through the new campaign.
 
Says Waecker: "To us, 'it's business time' means connecting with our small-business customers and providing them with everything they need to get things done, right down to the Blu Tack. With modest budgets, it's important that our creative is unique enough to break through, ensuring we deliver results for our business while entertaining our customers.
 
"Kiwi SMEs are relentless go-getters, they are looking for a sense of ingenuity, which is something we at Warehouse Stationery have in spades and I think comes across really well in the new ad.
 
"This is just the beginning of our new approach, and we can't wait to see the elements continue to unfold and deliver."
 
The integrated campaign will roll out in TV, print, digital, social media and radio.
