Under the designation, Barkley will be responsible for brand strategy, creative campaign development, media planning and buying, social media strategy and design. The agency is tasked with developing and executing a strategic media campaign that will help the brand grow awareness and household penetration.
“We’re excited to partner with Barkley to bring Justin’s great tasting products to new consumers,” says Justin’s Vice President of Marketing, Penny Andino, “We were drawn to Barkley for their breath of CPG work and expertise that is deeply rooted in strategy, consumer insights and media planning as we look to scale and accelerate brand growth.”
Justin’s plans to maintain and build on their current brand identity and the iconic clean and simple packaging developed by its previous agency, TDA Boulder. The account will be managed out of Barkley’s Boulder, Colo. offices.
