2009 National Sales and Marketing Award: NXT at Windemere by the Lake, Toronto
A profile of 2009 National Sales and Marketing Gold Award Winner NXT at Windemere by the Lake, Toronto
NXT at Windemere by the Lake, Toronto / Best Graphic Continuity Builder/developer: Cresford Developments
Ad agency: LA Inc., Toronto
NXT Condominiums' graphic identity was inspired by the Fendi Casa furnishings used in the models and the amenity areas within the building.
"It's a fabulous line," says Jennifer Morren of LA Inc. "Casa Fendi is new to Toronto. They design everything from linens to carpets and area rugs, to couches and beds."
Every marketing piece made good use of interior shots showcasing Fendi Casa furnishings and was pulled together with the bold yellow NXT logo.
"We based a lot of our marketing campaign around that whole very high-end fashion look and feel," says Morren. "We also wanted it to have a very neighborhood feel. But living down by the water and living an active lifestyle could also be very cool and fashionable. So we came up with the very vibrant yellows in our campaign and the very cool metallic grays."
Morren says the Fendi Casa tie-in nets lots of media coverage.
"We were able to expand our media opportunities into fashion magazines," she says. "It was something everybody wanted to see."
