FDJ (National French lottery)

youthful, engaging & vibrant

sense of simplicity

Challenge

FDJ, the French national lottery, Française des Jeux (FDJ), was facing a flood of new competitors. The FDJ sonic identity was the best way to stand out!

To reinforce its leadership position, the brand needed to strengthen communication in order to stand out and be understood.

Sonic identity

The new FDJ sonic identity is assertive, positive, and fun. The violin, guitar, rhythmic piano and percussion express the joy of life, humour, goodwill of  FDJ.

The unique, proprietary sound, enhanced FDJ’s leadership status and established the FDJ sonic brand as one of the most recognizable in France.

Just listen to the client testimonial from Patrick Buffard talk about how the brand engagement and recognition increased gradually over time due to the sonic logo.

 

Results

To officially reveal the FDJ sonic identity and further emphasize the brand’s personality, the Brand Movie and all Product Movies debuted at the L’Oréal Active Cosmetics International Meeting – each giving a custom music score to La Roche Posay.

According to Shazam, 70.3% of the brand film audience “shazamed” the music, which is 4 to 5 times above the average.
