BACKGROUND

Identity Service customers experience drastic price hikes at the time of renewal with competitors and need a fast and secure alternative for their businesses that also caters to their specific needs.

CHALLENGE

Customers often learn too late or not at all about Ping’s ability to help them switch Identity Service Providers within 90-days.

APPROACH

Disrupt the renewal market by crafting an Identity Rescue “witness protection” campaign that inspires urgency and trust through a valiant, integrated visual experience across digital and live platforms.

INVESTIGATION + STRATEGY

An initial phase of desk research and competitive analysis revealed a need for an empathetic approach to the plight of customers but more importantly, confidence-building. Working hand-in-hand with Campaign and Solution Marketing teams, we set out to hone in on championing a fair customer experience in campaign form.

After pitching eight experiential approaches that ranged from direct mail to custom hotline numbers for leads, Identity Rescue was conceived with the goal of taking customers seriously and motivating them to make confident decisions, while leaning into the audacious and bold.

Committing to the urgency and emotions of decision-making, I created an identity for Ping’s metaphorical Identity Rescue Service that embraced anonymity and stoicism, but still captured the frustration of real people, so as to humanize the struggle.

VALIDATION + ITERATION

After conferring with a focus group of stakeholders and trusted partners, we decided to test the success of image-led ads alongside a simplified but impactful type-led design in our media spots. In simplifying the visual load, we aimed to assess how messaging could be cheeky and helpful at the same time while achieving the greatest amount of clarity possible. We called this our "between you and me" direction because it employed punny advice from a "friend" who wants the best for you.

In another round of creation, I crafted another motif meant to evoke the facial pixelation of Witness Protection while adding in an elevated level of humor and meme-culture to the campaign. The silhouetted individuals in the first phase were powerful and eye-catching but I wanted to experiment in showing more emotionally-charged situations that a prospect could identify with.
