The 10 initial concepts presented to the Atturo Marketing Team


ATTURO TIRE BACKGROUND

When aftermarket tire manufacturer Atturo broke onto the scene in 2009 as the anti-corporate tire alternative for the light truck, SUV and crossover audience, they knew making headway in a crowded market could be challenging. To grow as an unknown challenger brand, they would need to differentiate themselves, compete on more than price, and establish themselves as a brand for people who value performance.

Plan B led an off-the-beaten-path creative journey to explore positioning possibilities…with the goal of helping Atturo stand apart in a marketplace marked by mediocrity and sameness. Our initial presentation yielded 10 campaign-able directions, each uniquely bold and reflective of the cultural sensibilities of the consumer audience. Atturo had difficulty narrowing the set, but ultimately arrived at the category-bucking creative you see here. We’re now busily extending this look, tone, and feel to sales collateral, social media, dealer/distributor communications, event marketing and more.
