Growing Beats into a $3billion dollar brand – one design at a time

Setting a new retail standard

Jimmy Lovine and Dr Dre brought the Beats brand to the market with an ambition to disrupt the audio retail landscape. As a young challenger brand, we were their lead creative agency driving brand awareness and product desirability for Beats, globally.

Our product launch activations made a mark in every corner of the world and accelerated their path to audio domination. From brand campaign activations, experiential marketing events, retailer product launches and PR stunts (AKA getting the product on the ears of Olympic Athletes), to creating bespoke products and packaging design, our impactful brand marketing concepts created headlines and commercial demand. Working at the speed of culture, our brand activation designs took Beats from five people to a $3billion-plus, global brand in just six years.

Breaking all the rules: Beats Shoreditch House was designed as a product seeding event for athletes during the 2012 London Olympics, widely reported as one of the best experiential, guerrilla marketing campaigns of all time.
Just what the Dr Dre ordered: We designed a headline-grabbing, experiential pop-up activation for the launch of the Beats Pill at SXSW Music Festival.
Shareable product marketing experiences: we created influencer events and a selfie wall to drive social media reach and online virability.
A creative retail marketing activation: For Selfridges iconic 'No Noise' brand campaign, we created a limited edition, ‘unbranded’ white product with 'silent' packaging design concept.
