GS&P Loves Steph Curry Just As Much As You Do

By Erik Oster 

Goodby Silverstein & Partners recently launched a “Strength in Numbers” campaign celebrating the Golden State Warriors’ record-setting season with the 30-second spots “73 Wins” and “2-Time MVP.”

“73 Wins,” obviously, focuses on the team’s record number of victories this season, counting down the wins via hash marks over black-and-white footage of Steph Curry and teammates celebrating a victory.

It keeps things simple and celebratory–which is fitting to appeal to Warriors fans–and ends with the “Strength in Numbers” tagline.

“2-Time MVP” focuses on Curry’s second consecutive MVP award. Continuing the minimalist approach of “73 Wins, it shows black and white footage of Curry sinking a shot with a pair of yellow hash marks appearing onscreen.

There’s no mention of the fact that Curry was the first-ever unanimous MVP selection, presumably because the agency made the spot well ahead of time. And while it was easy to predict that Curry would win, it was less obvious that he would make history with the unanimous vote.

The larger effort also includes out of home work, branding pieces for inside the stadium, and a new logo to go with the theme.
