Guess Who’s Coming?

That’s the question Baker Street posed to the Bay Area in our integrated digital, outdoor, and experiential campaign for this year’s College Football Playoff National Championship at Levi’s Stadium.

Our first step was to create an iconic poster and outdoor design, seen in the video below, that helped communicate that the National Championship game was actually the result of a playoff system involving the top 4 teams. This is only the 5th time the National Championship has been decided by the Playoff system.

The visual language of the campaign practically challenges fans to fill in the brackets, in their own mind, and make their own predictions. The design inspired a campaign where we literally asked fans to place the logos from the top 25 teams in the country, into the final four, and then make their predictions for the big game.

Did you guess right?
