About the Entry



AXE was a brand known mostly for bros, bikinis and body spray—not a great fit for the booming category they wanted to enter: premium men’s hair products.

To make the client’s new premium AXE Matte Effect line credible in the space, we would have to craft a completely new brand.

Merging hairstyle and lifestyle, we built the brand around the “Matte Man” and his motto: Less effort. More style. Through fun interactive content, the brand provides life advice, style tutorials and more for a unified experience across web, print, in-store and mobile.

As AXE begins rolling Matte Effect out internationally, we’ve positioned it for success. We gave AXE an engaging premium world, allowing them to keep existing customers and connect with an entirely new audience. In creating a brand for a new kind of man, we established a completely new kind of AXE.
