Asics It’s A Big World, Go Run It.
Asics multi-specialist sports brand that caters for all types of runners, whether you are a long distance road runner, an adventurous trail runner, a nimble city runner or a specialist ice runner. Their products are made for runners, by runners. The idea was to represent these different running tribes and have them come together on a fantastical mountain made up of every type of running terrain; snow, ice, sand, mud, water, tarmac and concrete, showing off Asics’s multi-specialist range.
This brand campaign utilised Asics sponsored athletes and it was seeded globally as an interactive 90” online film, a 60” TVC during key sporting events, along with 30” and 20” teasers. It was also seen in print, outdoor, online and in-store, world-wide.

Continuing the campaign idea into print, we created dioramas on the base
of each running shoe that reflected the environment of each running tribe.
For instance, the Natural Running shoe is for shorter city runs, so the landscape
contains lots of grand steps, raised bridges, tiered platforms and promenades,
posing physical challenges to the Natural Runners.
Tactical, city-specific marathon executions were seen creating
a buzz around the world’s biggest marathons.
