Make it Home

Motion media, content creation, and in-store signage for a fictional HGTV spring campaign.

An integrated network experience  

 

Design Objective

Design an integrated network experience for HGTV that will be live throughout the spring months.

Campaign Overview

This fictional HGTV integrated network experience is a spring time campaign inspired by the idea of making home, your home. It provides easy and quick ideas for renters and home owners alike to update their spaces while creating awareness for the HGTV network brand. By extending the Make It Home network IDs to multiple channels, the HGTV brand awareness will grow as fans become immersed in the Make It Home language.

Network IDs

Fans of the HGTV television channel will first be introduced to this experience with the introduction of four 15 second network IDs. These network ideas consist of simple line drawings to illustrate 4 rooms within a household: the living room, bathroom, bed room and kitchen. Each space takes on its own light and bright color story as the animation begins to switch out decor pieces to illustrate how easy it is to make your space feel like home. The ending HGTV logo animation continues to use the line drawing aesthetic while introducing a brush on texture that will be present throughout the rest of the campaign. 

 
 

Instagram Video Content

 
 

After the networks have been live for a few weeks, HGTV fans will begin to see the campaign in their social media feeds, introducing different ideas for an easy-to-do home decor update or remodel. Again, these posts will take place within 4 major rooms of the household with potential to move outside and other spaces within a home. Using animation techniques, rooms are transformed with a simple switch in paint color and ideas for transforming a room by using pieces you found during spring cleaning. The copy for each of the social posts helps to inspire followers to try these techniques in their own space.

Lowe's In-store campaign integration

To bring the campaign outside of the individuals home and personal setting, a cross-brand partnership is established with a Lowe’s in-store campaign integration. Partnering with HGTV's sister brand HGTV Home and existing partner Sherwin Williams paint, the Make It Home campaign is able to expand outside of the audience’s home. By using in-store signage within the already existing space, this integration helps to promote the HGTV Home x Sherwin Williams partnership by connecting it back to the HGTV television experience.

 
 

The signage features the 4 previously mentioned rooms within the home and shows an in-process photo of the rooms being painted or items within the room getting a face lift with a new coat of paint. Hashtags at the bottom of the signage encourage painters to share the finished product on social media and are the same hashtags featured on the HGTV social media handles.

Paint Swatch Campaign Extension

In order to further this experience and bring it back into the home, the home shaped paint chips of the HGTV Home x Sherwin Williams partnership will feature Make It Home branding along with another invitation to share the final product on social media with the same hashtags. This campaign has the ability to work full circle, starting within the home and personal setting, then existing in the ‘outside world’, one again entering the personal setting of the home.  There are multiple opportunities to get fans involved on social media by interacting with HGTV content as well as posting their own content to share with their friends, families and followers.
