In late 2010, McCann NY won responsibilities for the U.S. relaunch of Chicco, a 50 year old Italian company specializing in making babies happy around the world. Here in the U.S. they are little known. When asked, most people have no idea where Chicco is from – Mexico? China? Nor do most people know how to pronounce the name.

Objective: To make a big launch splash with a limited budget.

Website hosting, CMS and streaming to digital billboard: Aerva

Digital advertisement created by McCann, United States for Chicco, within the category: Fashion.

Focus: teaching the correct pronunciation of the brand (Kee-Ko), establishing the provenance and the products, which in the U.S. are car seats, strollers, toys.
