Havas Chicago Brings Moen’s Innovations to Life In Powerful New Ads

Moen, the Faucet Category Leader, Celebrates Innovation in “Inspired By” Spots

CHICAGO--()--In a category better known for its pure, everyday function and dependability, Havas Chicago’s latest work for faucet leader Moen brings a modern, visual exclamation of innovation and style to the brand. The new work, “Inspired By,” brings Moen innovations to life through five compelling narratives designed to evoke emotion and provoke thought.

We took a fresh creative approach by bringing drama and passion to a category known for speaking to audiences about lifestyle,” said Jason Peterson, Chairman and Chief Creative Officer of Havas Creative, U.S. “Moen’s innovations are strong but underappreciated. We created a bold, visual language to highlight the products and did so in ways to further modernize the brand and its emotional appeal.”

Havas’ modern marketing model allows the agency to operate faster and smarter, pushing brands like Moen to think outside traditional category lines and engage with their audience in different ways. In the first spot, “Power Clean, Inspired by Force,” visuals of a rumbling storm, a fire hose spigot, a powerful hammer and a focused female boxer demonstrate the incredible water pressure force behind Moen’s Power Clean™ technology for faucets. “Magnetix, Inspired by Attraction” incorporates the personal with the practical, as viewers watch people come together and flowers turn toward the sun. It illustrates the strong pull of magnets that allow Moen’s Magnetix™ handheld shower heads to easily release and snap back into the base. Three additional spots for three other Moen innovations will follow in 2018.

Since its inception more than 75 years ago, Moen has had a proven history of innovation in the kitchen and bath business. These ads seek to remind people of the brand’s DNA and modernize it,” said Mark-Hans Richer, SVP, Chief Marketing and Innovation Officer at Fortune Brands Global Plumbing Group. “It’s just the beginning.”

The nationwide creative work spans TV, print, digital, social media and in-store collateral, and is geared toward connecting with millennial first-time home buyers. TV runs through 2018 on major networks, including CBS, HGTV, Food Network, USA and the Cooking Channel. There is also a print component in Elle Décor, HGTV Magazine and Better Homes & Gardens.
