For Every Journey

Roahn Outdoor Clothing. Vivid Creative using an image of a couple in Norway as part of the case study for Rohan.

Rohan engaged Vivid as a creative marketing agency to take their seasonal marketing calendar to the next level and drive home the true value of their high-quality products, Vivid’s experience in the outdoor industry was a natural fit.

Founded in 1972 by Paul and Sarah Howcroft in Skipton, North Yorkshire – Rohan have been making world class technical outdoor clothing for over forty-five years.

Using the most advanced fabric technologies in the world, Rohan is an outdoor brand with a reputation for delivering world-class technical clothing. From waterproofs and trousers to jackets and shorts, innovation has been at the heart of the Rohan story ever since.

Embrace the elements

Autumn/Winter 2022

Approaching Autumn/Winter 2022, we challenged Rohan to
‘Embrace the Elements’ in conveying the core principles that bind the brand together.

Inspired by weather symbols, a suite of stylised icons formed the campaign identity to showcase Rohan’s clothing protection from the elements – in whatever form they may come.

Supported with technical and lifestyle imagery, the result was an integrated campaign immersed in adventure, encouraging customers to head outside and put the innovation and technology of Rohan’s products to the test.

The campaign included:

  • Campaign headline and concepts
  • Visual application across the marketing mix
  • Retail store window graphics
  • Retail point of purchase
  • Ecommerce website campaign visuals and application
  • Animated digital banners
  • Social media assets
  • Email design and assets
  • Direct mail catalogue

Spring 2023

For Spring 2023 we created ‘Refresh’ as a spring launch campaign to encourage customers to renew their outdoor wardrobe for the new season and in doing so, give people the opportunity to benefit from this initiative through ‘Gift Your Gear’.

The ‘Gift Your Gear’ incentive allowed customers to donate their existing outdoor clothing and benefit from 15% off any purchase in store or online.

The result was a multi-channel campaign that launched early spring, starting with a forty page mailer packed with new and innovative products. This translated across window displays, email, web banners and social assets to inspire and educate customers on the technical designs and technologies Rohan are renowned for.
