Vitamin Applies Its Signature to Innovative New Broadcast, Print and Web Campaign for Pilot Corporation of America.

Posted by on Sep 19, 2012

CHICAGO—Hybrid production studio Vitamin has teamed with Tallahassee agency Bright Red to create a multi-platform ad campaign for Pilot Corporation of America, makers of high quality, innovative writing instruments, to highlight the many ways Pilot’s unique pens help people make their own distinctive mark.

The campaign, which includes broadcast, print and web components, was designed, produced and finished entirely by Vitamin’s in-house creative team. The broadcast spots feature relatable moments in day-to-day life showing how there is a Pilot Pen to fit everyone’s needs. A songwriter, for example, uses the FriXion erasable gel ink pen to completely erase lyrics, and then smoothly rewrite them after learning that his girlfriend has dumped him. The lyrics and whimsical drawings represent the singer’s thoughts and emotions, and spring to life like doodles on blank paper. (All of the animation is hand drawn by artists using the appropriate Pilot Pen.) The Pilot campaign tagline is “Power to the Pen.”
