SALEWA AND ZOOOM GO OFF THE WALL

Italian sportswear manufacturer SALEWA is recognized worldwide for its high-quality products. Promoting such a reputable brand however requires a very special campaign; and that’s where we come in. From concept to delivery, zooom is proud to be the team behind ‘get vertical’ – SALEWA’s summer campaign. The idea was to inspire consumers to explore more and make the most of the mountains.

To achieve this, zooom teamed up with photographer Klaus Fengler and SALEWA athlete Simon Gietl for an epic photo shoot on the challenging north face of Tre Cime in Italy. The end result was two eye-catching keyvisuals; one to inspire the amateur consumers and one to captivate the professionals. You can expect big things this summer, so keep an eye out.

EBNER’S WALDHOF IS FLYING HIGH WITH ZOOOM

The Ebner’s Waldhof hotel, situated by the beautiful Lake Fuschl, has been a neighbor and partner of zooom for many years. Whilst currently on a well-deserved, one-month break, the leisure complex will once again open its doors to guests on the 6th of April. This time however, they will be operating under a new brand identity which was carefully designed and delivered by the zooom team. This was achieved through a new range of hotel stationary and merchandising.

Another exciting aspect of the brand relaunch was the aerial filming of the four-star hotel’s stunning grounds. Making the most of the rarely frozen lake, we took to the air to get some spectacular drone shots of the complex and its snow-covered surroundings. The result was this short and cinematic video, which is testament to the beautiful region that the luxury hotel calls home. Click here to see more of our work with Ebner’s Waldhof.
