Creating the perfect strapline

The Boden strapline
The client

Boden.

The challenge

This job was a few years ago now, but the principles of creating a great strapline haven’t changed. The brand agency had carved out a positioning territory for Boden centred around a ‘lust for life’. We needed to conjure up a strapline which evoked this. 


The solution

We created a strapline that was memorable and distinctly Boden’s. It captured the essence of the company and what they stood for. Life-affirming and fun, it spoke loud and clear to Boden’s comfortable target audience. 

The script

'Good times, great clothes.'  

 

The results

The best measure of a strapline’s success is longevity. This one was used for eight years, while its replacement barely lasted five months.
