To launch New Era's revolutionary new line of high-performance headwear and create a new category of sportswear,
we proposed a campaign that took ownership of one of the few white spaces left in the crowded performance category:
The campaign brought to life the cooling benefits of the new breathable, lightweight headwear by focusing on high-intensity, in-game moments when the pressure is on, when cooler heads prevail and when victory or defeat is determined by who stays coolest under pressure.
NEW ERA CAPS | IT'S ON CAMPAIGN
The visual identity that we created based on this idea depicted an athlete's headspace during high-pressure moments. We featured three overlapping thoughts: the task at hand, a distraction and the athlete him or herself, and we combined them in such a way as to isolate the athlete, highlight the task and push the distraction into the background.
