The Bravehearts campaign became the concept that expressed both the overall brand sentiment and a new online experience at bravehearts.com where girls can share their style and stories. Toth’s strategy was a multi-media campaign of digital, social, print, mall media and retail components to be used in markets around the globe. Bravehearts.com is designed to fuel engagement, content creation, and ultimately provide a significant source of earned media for Keds. Taylor Swift was identified as embodying a shared brave new spirit: confident, enduring, iconic, eternally optimistic, all-American, and a fashion leader with a great story of personal courage. Taylor was to be Brave Girl #1; accelerating a meaningful connection to young women and strong brand association.
