For the UK launch of Virgin’s latest business, Start took the company back to its roots in a campaign that mixes traditional and online rich media promotion to great effect. As Virgin’s lead brand agency for more than a decade, Start was appointed by Ashley Stockwell, Virgin Group brand marketing director, and Andy Kendrick, ex-Virgin Megastore head of marketing, to manage the campaign for its fledgling digital music service and new brand, Virgin Digital.

Competing with iTunes and Napster, the new music download service will be available though the Virgin Digital Web site offering over one million tracks along with various customer benefits.

Start’s executive creative director Darren Whittingham explains the challenge of the project: “The idea was to create something that was truly distinctive from the competition and that was music driven, along with a brand identity that formed the backdrop to the campaign.”

According to Whittingham, the team’s first focus was to create a brand identity that captured the spirit of Virgin’s original music roots before creating the launch campaign and helping to plan a strategy for how the brand would be launched on and offline.
