Old Town has been shaping adventure since 1898, and every new product represents both a link to the past, and a future filled with memorable experiences. For the launch of their Sportsman and Autopilot kayaks, Old Town needed rich content to showcase product innovations, while telling a compelling story that would resonate with its target audience — all while driving awareness and conversion.

Gorilla Group partnered with Old Town under an accelerated timeline to create a campaign that included animated display ads, Facebook ads, email templates, video ads, print ads, social media stories, tradeshow activation, and Old Town Sportsman website landing pages. Together, we worked to achieve the wins that would effectively differentiate and promote a whole new line of kayaks, under a brand new, redesigned category, while highlighting the most compelling product features.

With “What does it mean to be an Old Town Sportsman?” as the driving message of the campaign, we crafted content to guide customers to all types of kayaking experiences — Power, Pedal, or Paddle. These themes permeated messaging and landing pages, amplified by arresting and epic colors and typography.
