Starbucks x Twilight Collaboration brand strategy

Creative brief

A popular brand aims to launch a social media campaign targeting a fandom from popular movies, books, or TV shows. The primary goal is to promote a new product, service, or collection that caters to the fandom community. Deliverables include a presentation deck that includes, but is not limited to the target audience, the new product or service, social media content, etc.

Idea (new product)

For this portfolio classwork, our team “Cre8tive Matters” came up with a fictional collaboration between Twilight Saga and Starbucks Coffee. Starbucks Corporation is an American multinational chain of coffeehouses and roastery reserves. With a multitude of customers under different demographics, Starbucks is known for coming up with several creative brand ideas for different seasonal celebrations, movie trends etc. so as to cater to different sectors. For this brief, we decided to narrow down our idea to create a social media brand strategy, in order to introduce and sell a limited time series of new Starbucks coffee drinks with different tastes. Each drink represents a major character from the Twilight book and movie series. What is the goal? To excite Twilight and Starbucks fans to create a connection and rekindle nostalgic memories with their favourite Twilight characters.
