Can’t wait to skate
Icehouse is Melbourne’s newest ice sports and entertainment facility and is the largest in the Southern Hemisphere. The challenge was to market ice sports in a market where there was no ice-sport culture. Traffic created a brand identity for Icehouse that communicated the essential ingredients of this iconic venue – great fun and world-class entertainment. The identity was applied from the building interior and exterior right through to advertising collateral, including the ‘Can’t wait to skate’ campaign which ran in the lead up to the grand opening. The campaign was a huge success, with more than 20,000 visitors in the first 2 weeks of operation.
