Eichborn ‘Flyvertising’

  • Eichborn repositioned itself and redesigned their logo. The challenge was to make Eichborn – the publisher with the fly – the talk of the literary world and at the same time position the company as a brave, humorous and unconventional book publisher.
    At the Frankfurt Book Fair, we turned the Eichborn logo – the fly – into a living advertising medium. And thereby invented ‘Flyvertising’. We printed the logo and the stand number on ultralight miniature banners and attached them to 200 flies. And at a large PR event, we released them from the Eichborn stand in front of the assembled press.
    The video documentation spread rapidly through social networks and became an internet smash hit.
