Brief To create a catalogue that offers more than just a directory of House by John Lewis products, with flexible content that works across multiple channels
Solution Covering everything from furniture to cookware, the House by John Lewis range is targeted mainly at time-short customers who are probably living in smaller, perhaps rented, houses or apartments. With this in mind, we designed a content marketing campaign that tackles some of the challenges they might face, such as finding room for a home office or entertaining guests without a dining table. We called these ‘Ideas for modern living’, and presented them via a pacey mix of lifestyle photography, lists and tips in a warm, conversational tone. Of course, every page is bursting with products, but this concept-driven, editorially led approach also shows customers how to create rooms that are functional, stylish and brimming with personality. Two of the solutions were ripe for development into snappy videos for johnlewis.com, using stop-motion animation with playful music and text captions. And because the commissioned imagery is also used for point of sale displays, the johnlewis.com landing pages and social media, the assets work together to inspire customers in store, at home and online.
A series of short films were produced alongside the stills photography for use on johnlewis.com
