The Laurel School: Brand Refresh


After 50 years of educating children, we gave the school a fresh voice, a fresh look, and … their first, super fresh annual report. It’s amazing what you can do with a few talented volunteers and the belief that every child can gain the confidence to learn and be a success. Developing a new brand story for this school has truly been a labour of love.

As part of the larger Project Potential campaign, “Keep the Smiles Coming” was a Lunchables “Now with Fruit” launch — as well as a collaboration with Feeding America to get more fresh fruit to kitchens, food pantries and shelters.

Anchored by OOH executions in New York, Los Angeles and Chicago, this was the biggest advertising and cause-related marketing campaign in its brand history, featuring: a  robust social media campaign encouraging people to upload ‘Fruit Smile’ photos to drive fruit donations; a Times Square takeover with 7 digital video billboards; 5 interactive digital storefronts with facial-recognition technology (enabling people to update and share ‘Fruit Smile’ photos); and a mobile tour with interactive fruit-themed games, and a photo booth.
