Competition is at the core of racing. And with the “obstacle race” category growing rapidly, Savage Race needed a marketing boost to sprint past competitors and separate itself from the pack.
Don’t be like everybody
else. Be yourself. Be better
than everybody else.
A Savage OverhaulMost obstacle races look and talk the same way. Overly-masculine. Graphically distressed. Focused only on the enormity of the challenge ahead. So for SAVAGERACE, we ran off in a totally new direction and recommended a shift in attention to the obstacles themselves – namely positioning SAVAGERACE as the category leader in innovative obstacle design and quantity of obstacles per mile. From there, we redesigned their logo to be energetic and powerful, without being gratuitously macho. And we art directed SAVAGERACE.com with an entirely new visual presence. Featuring striking, top-quality photography – zeroing in on individual effort and the human form overcoming obstacles.
“The whole team at Maven helped us plant our flag in the ground as an industry leader. We've seen first hand how a better brand and digital experience translates to better sales.”- Sam | Savage Race Founder
