The nominations should focus on the person’s occupation and how they’re making it work – individuals that represent the brand and what it stands for will be rewarded with clothes and related merchandise. An anonymous curated entry will appear on a pinterest-styled campaign website. The brand ambassadors can both participate and nominate other individuals. Fans will have the option to secretly send the nomination to their hero, immediately offering a discount voucher for the online shop. Adidas will later invite the nominees that best represent the spirit of the brand to participate in the related video ad.

For instances - walk a lot on hospital hallways? Maybe you should look at the indoor sport shoes; Event planner always on the street? Check out these running shoes. The fans will be able to share their results through social media or to directly visit a curated offer from the shop.
  12. 12. Ads tone & feel The campaign ads should keep the authenticity of the brand. Previous efforts have taken similar stands, focusing on the valuation of the identity, uniqueness and boldness. The message should be clear and direct, spoken in the 2nd person. It’s not about adidas – it’s about your style and you fashion. Endorsers can serve as a catalyst for the message, helping to prove a point – that every achievement matters, even if nobody notices: • Messi runs 8 kms per football match. Waitresses can walk up to 12 km, per shift. • Harden runs 4 kms per basketball match. Nurses walk twice that on average, per day. Sources:
