Classic Plumbing Fixtures Brand Cheekily Plays Up Tech-Forward, Innovative Culture In “Porcelain Valley”
Solve launched a new campaign for client American Standard that demonstrates the 140-year-old plumbing fixtures brand’s commitment to innovation by borrowing from the tech associations of Silicon Valley. In a multimillion-dollar, multi-channel effort that debuted November 1, American Standard’s new campaign portrays the company in the innovative world of “Porcelain Valley.”
Porcelain Valley serves as the backdrop and breeding ground for all of American Standard’s new technologies and life-changing products. A cast of nerdy product engineers designing and attempting to create revolutionary plumbing innovations is featured in a laboratory-like work environment.
In addition to films/spots introducing the Porcelain Valley platform, there are product-specific executions detailing advancements like a self-cleaning toilet and remote touch shower. Additionally, the campaign includes an unveiling film featuring the head of Porcelain Valley (a send-up of the way computer/phone companies use their leaders to announce new products). The campaign consists of television, social, digital, print and in-store content.
