Ray-Ban Project Colorize

Posted in Advertising, Branding, Fashion, Marketing by Gladys Santiago on July 2, 2008

Ray-Ban recently launched a campaign for their new line of Wayfarer sunglasses.  The Project Colorize ads and products were designed by five New York artists (Tara McPherson, Scott Alger, Queen Andrea, Ron English, and Toofly) and have been featured in Marie Claire.  The billboards, which will run in New York, are expected to 16 million impressions each month (via: Adweek).  To kick off the promotion, Ray-Ban sponsored a stunt near Herald Square in which paid actors donned their Wayfarers to stare at one of the billboards (via: Style Wise).  Click here to see a couple of pictures from the event. 

Wayfarers are back in a big way.  I just purchased a pair over the weekend.  Although, I love the Project Colorize styles and was really looking forward to getting the ones designed by Tara McPherson, I opted to get a more subtle color.  Last year, Ray-Ban introduced its Never Hide campaign, which emphasized consumer involvementthrough its online community and gave a lucky few the opportunity to feel like super-models.  If you attended the Project Colorize marketing stunt, please send me pics or tell me your thoughts.  It would be much appreciated!
