Ruffling feathers in the Animalcare marketplace.

Animalcare are leaders in the UK animal healthcare sector, offering the veterinary market a wide range of pharmaceuticals and practice equipment. So when they asked Wish to pitch for a campaign to launch their new range of canine health products, we were delighted to accept.

As with any branding pitch, the first stage was to analyse as much insight as possible on the market and target audience.

Only when we had a clear understanding of the target market did we begin to develop a groundbreaking integrated marketing campaign to run across a wide range of online and offline media.

The product and ‘Superearos’ campaign were launched at the London Vet Show at Excel where the stand we developed was the star of the show.

This bold campaign concept was shortlisted in the prestigious VMA Awards

Thanks to the success of the Superearos campaign, Wish were soon entrusted with re-branding the company’s flagship brand – Identichip and aligning the related brands, Anibase and Locate into one succinct brand message. 

Once again research in the form of focus groups with vets and vet nurses was the cornerstone of the brand development resulting in renaming the brands and even restructuring the product offering.

The launch of this new brand took place at the BVASA show in Birmingham where we installed a roulette wheel on the stand for vets to bet using the ‘chips’ we’d mailed them the week before.

This very significant brand relaunch also included redesigns of three websites, brochures, staff clothing, office displays, email templates, POS materials and internal forms.

Animalcare have found Wish to be a pleasure to work with. Their creative team took us in new directions, whilst their all-round marketing knowledge ensured everything developed has been focused on achieving our objectives. We’d have no hesitation in recommending Wish as a fully integrated marketing agency.
