Design Army Redefines Luxury in Their New Campaign for CityCenterDC

Posted inBranding & Identity Design

Forget NYC Fashion Week: DC just hit the style spotlight with Design Army’s new CityCenterDC campaign, redefining luxury and repositioning our nation’s capital as the creative/fashion-forward city it actually is, in the most fun, whimsical way ever! The wildly witty spot for the city’s biggest shopping and dining district celebrates self-expression to the ultimate with a crazy, quirky train journey full of eclectic characters of every age and style sense, all on the fast track to a place where creativity is applauded. Backdropped by DC’s majestic landmarks, the meticulously art directed, anything-but-typical campaign explodes with eye-popping color and unexpected references, like 1940s jazz music, a twist of hip-hop, over-the-top forks, show horses, and more.

Even the custom typography has personality all its own. Seriously, it’s the best show of how style is truly ageless. What’s more luxurious than that?
