CASE STUDY

The board games industry is highly competitive. Despite Mattel Games having a portfolio of well-known and classic games, sales were declining.

 

Mattel needed a way to reinvigorate consumer communication to solidify their market share position and to help breathe new life into mature game titles like Pictionary and UNO.

Mattel challenged Swerve to develop a program that would support their entire portfolio of games while driving purchases across a broad spectrum of titles.

Our solution: a rebrand that encouraged people to #Reconnect with Mattel Games, pushed out with tactics that increased sharing potential in digital, print and with top influencers.

OUR
