Peoples Gas

Peoples Gas and sister company North Shore Gas are an invisible, but essential element of our daily lives. Before embarking on several major initiatives, they felt a need to understand market perceptions and create a unified brand under which all communications would fall. Enter Sandstorm. We lead a complete research-based repositioning that told us that people only thought about them when they had a problem, so we wanted to keep it that way. The result was the We Keep Life Moving brand strategy that was brought to life through campaigns for Safety, System Improvements, Energy Efficiency, ebilling, and customer support. We Keep Life Moving stands as their corporate mantra today.
