Westinghouse, part of Electrolux Group, has launched its latest brand campaign ‘Now You Can’ via Connecting Plots, to celebrate huge product innovations in the major appliances category.
With over 60 years of innovation, Westinghouse is now offering sophisticated dark stainless steel designs for a brand new kitchen range. The range features AirFry built straight into the ovens making cooking easy and reliable, induction cooktops featuring clever BoilProtect sensors to turn heat down automatically to prevent water boiling over, and a fridge drawer that converts to a freezer at the touch of a button.
Says Richelle Barker, marketing director, Electrolux Group: “In 2020, the modern kitchen is for more than just cooking. From entertaining visitors, to family meals and helping kids with homework, it certainly is the multi-functional heart of the home. It’s crucial that the kitchen works practically and visually since we spend so much time there.
“The new Westinghouse range will make daily life a little easier, offering innovations for home cooks, as we encourage people to cook at home with their families. We’re excited to be rolling out something that makes Westinghouse stand out and is designed with families in mind.”
The campaign looks to break category conventions with a unique, stylised visual language and by telling customer stories through the eyes of interesting characters who ‘can now’ (thanks to Westinghouse), get the job done quicker and more efficiently in the kitchen.
Says Tom Phillips, partner, Connecting Plots: “The category tends to be fairly formulaic so we decided to step things up, injecting some personality and creating a stylised world to give the brand distinction.”
The campaign is rolling out across digital, social and print with fridge executions rolling out later in the year.
