Updating a classic brand to speak to a new generation.
Founded in 1926, Pioneer is one of agriculture’s most iconic brands. We needed to create a campaign that signaled first to our sales channel, and then to our customers, that Pioneer is much more about the future than the past.
By orchestrating communications to our sales representatives and then directly to farmers, we helped refresh and reinvigorate the Pioneer® brand. The integrated campaign included direct mail, multiple podcasts, a website, TV, radio, print and digital.
Respect the audience.
Before telling farmers that Pioneer had changed we needed to acknowledge that farming had changed, too. Today’s farmers are astute businesspeople who run enterprise-level operations in the most complex industry on earth.
Demonstrate our credentials.
We wanted to show Pioneer’s commanding role in R&D advances at a glance, instantly and impactfully.
The power of imagination.
During planting and harvest, farmers listen to a lot of radio. So, we used radio’s theater of the mind to transport them to the research labs and test plots all across the country that make Pioneer, Pioneer.

A website like they’ve never seen.
To showcase a reenergized Pioneer, we reimagined what an ag website could be. We created a website heavy with computer graphic imagery to take farmers behind-the-seeds to learn about Pioneer’s game-changing R&D.
