Ace Hardware - Every home / “Helpful Branding” - (2009) :30 (USA)
New branding campaign from Ace hardware;
The spot evokes the pride of home ownership through naturalistic scenes of people fixing up their homes. The spots are shot entirely with hand-held cameras, which gives them a loose, easy sensibility that allows viewers to feel as though they are gazing over a fence at things happening in the neighbor’s backyard. Yet, the spots aren’t straight documentary as the visuals are highly polished and vibrantly hued in a way that makes them appear just a bit larger than life.
