Please keep your distance.

Katjes launches an OOH advertising campaign outside supermarkets across Germany

Emmerich, 23 April 2020 – Katjes has one small request: ‘Please keep your distance’. The company is communicating the important message via a national OOH campaign, placing posters right where people are most likely to mingle: in supermarkets.

But with photo shoots not currently an option, Katjes and its agency antoni jellyhouse had to hunt through the archives to find a fitting image for the new campaign. They finally decided to revive a familiar visual in typical ‘Katjes Pink’. The Katjes logo features prominently as key message, but the letters are spread with unusually large spacing across the poster to clearly visualise the underlying message: Please keep your distance.

Starting on 24 April 2020, the posters will appear in front of familiar supermarket chains across Germany. The same image will also be used for printed ads in major German newspapers.
