Pacific Sunwear of California, Inc. is turning up the heat with the debut of a new creative campaign designed to support the "Golden State of Mind" (GSOM) brand position and showcase why PacSun is the premier California lifestyle retailer.
Gary Schoenfeld, CEO of PacSun, states, "For over 30 years PacSun has been at the forefront of youth culture, great brands and California lifestyle. Today's inspirations go far beyond palm trees and sandy beaches, and our 'Golden State of Mind' brand identity is about redefining California lifestyle, which is more relevant and multi-faceted than ever. We are capturing the creativity, diversity and optimism that are an integral part of our brand and naturally embedded within California. With this campaign we set out to clearly demonstrate how the inspirations we feel and see every day resonate with customers who live across all 50 states."
Added Schoenfeld, "Over the past six months, we sought out the "Golden State of Mind" across 20 cities and landmarks throughout the country. No other brand or retailer has been able to capture the essence of California in such a way, until now. From Portland to Miami to Mt. Rushmore to Niagara Falls, customers will see a literal blending of California with their own backyard when they go to their local mall. The debut of the 'Golden State of Mind' campaign proves that the GSOM mindset is pervasive across the country."
Beginning Memorial Weekend, PacSun will bring the "Golden State of Mind" initiative to all customer touch points. An online portal of all things GSOM will be accessible through the PacSun website, including the video, image galleries, contest details, city guides, #myGSOM content and more. The brand video, which is considered the heartbeat of the campaign, depicts the raw energy and emotion that "Golden State of Mind" evokes. Customers are encouraged to find their "Golden State of Mind" and share their experiences through various social media channels, utilizing #myGSOM.
