HP Paparazzi campaign puts spotlight on HP tech couture lifestyle portfolio
Hewlett Packard tapped the services of Dave Hogan, a top paparazzo, and the creative team of Saatchi & Saatchi to give the HP Style Portfolio a strong appeal to the technology conscious glitterati. The ads initially kicked off in France, United Kingdom, Russia, and Germany revolving around the tag line “Life is your stage. Perform.”
Jeanne Pierre Le Calvez, VP for marketing of HP, explains that all of the company’s efforts for this campaign centers on helping design conscious consumers to achieve their goals using the technology available while staying cool and fashionable.
He adds that HP continues to explore sleek designs and innovative materials in collaboration with famous fashion designers to deliver a collection of highly desirable products. The Paparazzi campaign will showcase the line-up in different settings focusing on their thin and light architecture making them highly mobile for today’s lifestyle.
These products are the HP Mini 210, HP Envy, and the collection of posh computers from New York based designer Vivienne Tam. The Spring collection PCs from the designer features Butterfly Lover prints which at first look can be mistaken for an elegant designer purse. This move truly makes HP a tech couture pioneer that serves fashion-forward consumers.
The ad campaign was shot in a shopping strip, restaurant, nightclub, and at Bentley proving that the fashionable HPs are also good shields for the blinding flash of the cameras.
