Challenge

With its 200th anniversary right around the corner, Eastern Bank asked us to develop a new creative platform that would bring to life their brand’s purpose-driven DNA. The campaign needed to elevate them past products and services and connect with people—of all ages, cultures, races and socioeconomic levels—on a deeper, more human level.

Idea + Solution

Rather than simply promote the brand, we sought to create a movement. “Join Us For Good” not only showcased Eastern Bank’s courageous advocacy on various social issues but invited others to do the same. With Eastern recently launching into year four of this campaign, they continue to prove that driving profitable growth and embracing social responsibility can go hand-in-hand.
