Under Armour Launches Its First Holiday Campaign, Featuring Inspired Creative Developed with Directors André Stringer and Noah Conopask, and DOMO

LOS ANGELES and BALTIMORE – (Dec. 14, 2022) – Expanding the terrain of the prolific creative partnership behind many iconic Under Armour marketing campaigns over the past decade, Co-Directors André Stringer and Noah Conopask and their colleagues at collaboration company DOMO are very proud to detail their latest groundbreaking campaign for the brand.

Leveraging Under Armour’s comprehensive understanding of athletes, the brand’s very first integrated holiday campaign has been painstakingly designed to engage athletes’ biggest fans directly. Developed hand-in-hand with Under Armour’s in-house creative team, the campaign’s highly calibrated ideation system features cinematic ads (2 x :30 “Anthem” spots, and multiple sport- and product-specific :15s and :06s) addressing the full media landscape with creative that has been custom-built for key audiences.

Each ad begins with a branded title card reading “Give the Gift,” then shows hard-working talents looking up from their workouts and testifying to the camera: Every rep, sweat, mile, shot, session, challenge, and season is a gift to be earned, they tell us. Resolving with a poignant invitation to shop this holiday, each element’s narrative is discretely matched to each media platform and audience through an exhaustive media plan, courtesy of Digitas.

“Being part of this campaign with our long-standing clients and friends at Under Armour has been yet another tremendous honor for us,” Stringer began. “UA’s creative leaders, including Jen Matic-van der Straaten, wanted to directly appeal to those who love athletes and want to support them. Noah, myself, and many more of our DOMO talents have been immersed within Under Armour’s universe for well over a decade. This campaign draws on all that inside knowledge, and with its sophisticated media strategy, it taps into the future as well.”

Stringer and Conopask are well established experts in the creation of inspired storytelling for sports marketing. Through DOMO, the focus on bespoke collaboration prioritizes intimacy and teamwork in the realization of client objectives. Accordingly, the directors’ creative deck for this project presents a masterful case for the campaign’s premise, provides meticulous documentation for its finely honed deliverables, and visualizes the campaign in real-world settings, with applications ranging from online to out-of-home to point-of-sale.

For the mission-critical filmed content, Conopask shared his impassioned outlook. “To bring the campaign to the next level, we knew it had to transcend the physicality of sport,” he began. “We worked intimately with our cast of real athletes to ensure they infused the script with truth, heart, soul, and intensity of what the gift of hard work in sport means to athletes as a whole.”

Conopask continued, “Crafting performances together with our ultra-talented colleagues including director of photography Eric Ulbrich, editor Tim Throton-Allan, and composer André Stringer, our goals are achieved when viewers see what it truly means to be an athlete.”

DOMO’s contributors also include Managing Partner Rani Melendez and many others, with finishing and VFX courtesy of Union Editorial LA/Hunter. Complete project credits are available upon request.
