TBRIEF

Create a campaign under the slogan: “Prepare for the Expected and Unexpected.” THE CHALLENGE: showcase each type of activity the various multi-tools are used for and to bring awareness to new audiences

BRAND HISTORY Leatherman is a heritage brand of multi-tools and knives that are manufactured by The Leatherman Tool Group, Inc. located in Portland Oregon. Tim Leatherman and Steve Berliner founded the company on July 5, 1983 based on the need for a pliers based, multi-purpose tool. The company was based on simple and fundamental principles: manufacture the highest quality products that deliver excellent value to the consumer, while providing good, living-wage jobs to the local workforce. It was in that same year that The Leatherman Tool Group, Inc. was founded that it sold its first invention – the Pocket Survival Tool (PST) Leatherman’s product line currently includes various multi-tool products for certain activities:

• Outdoor • Emergency

• Tactical • Action Sports

• Trades • Travel Friendly

• Do it Yourself

The mission of Leatherman is to inspire and prepare its owners for the expected - and unexpected - that inevitably will come their way. Every multi-tool and knife Leatherman ships out the door is crafted by one of the 700 Oregonians who call Leatherman a great place to work. It stands behind its products with a no-questionsasked 25 year warranty.

BRAND STATUS Currently, Leatherman tries to compete at the same price point as its competition, all while building their tools locally in Oregon. The brand has loyal customers but is not as well known to audiences outside of its current customers. Leatherman recently created a new voice and identity for the brand with the “Leave nothing undone” campaign to capture the essence of its rugged, do-it-all products and the people who use them.

JUICE SX

A multi-tool is nice, but not when you have to carry two to get a job done. With the Leatherman Juice SX surf multi-tool, you can carry one tool that will keep you ready for any adventure. Make adjustments to your board with the 3/32” fin key, take care of old-school fix it with the pliers, wire cutters, knife and screwdrivers, and even open your end-of-day beach refreshments with your corkscrew, bottle opener or can opener. With the new textured black anodized aluminum handles, the only trouble you’ll have is keeping your friends from borrowing it.
