The Story

HOW DOES A MASS E-CIGARETTE BRAND ENTER THE ELITE WORLD OF VAPING?

The Challenge

Already a market leader in the e-cigarette category, NJOY came to us with its sights set on the adjacent vaping market. Recent exponential growth made vaping critical to NJOY’s long-term success, but NJOY knew its mass-market reputation would hinder its ability to break into trendy, high-end vape shops. They needed help developing a provocative new sub-brand and launch strategy that would legitimize their role in the vaping space.


The Solution

BUILD IN STREET CRED. Given the paramount importance of flavor in the world of vaping, we created the Artist Collection: a curated set of high-quality e-juices and an unprecedented brand collaboration between NJOY and the nation’s top flavor artists. Leveraging the unique flavor mixologies and the passion of the artists behind them, we built a unified brand story – seamlessly weaving together the disparate personalities and flavors to add depth and excitement to the vaping experience.
