SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Caltrain Station in San Francisco has a vibrant new look thanks to Etsy, the online marketplace where people around the world connect to buy and sell unique goods. Etsy enlisted Made to position them as a different kind of tech company and to raise awareness of their new office in the Bay area. Made created the "Code as Craft" campaign to prove that craft and code are one in the same by using the vernacular of technology and engineering to showcase real Etsy goods.
"This is more than a recruitment campaign. It's also a branding campaign," said Dave Schiff, chief creative officer at Made. "Lots of people know Etsy is a killer repository of unique, crafted products. But most people have no idea that behind all that craft is a tech powerhouse. So the campaign not only lets engineers know Etsy is hiring, it lets consumers know Etsy is where they'll find the most innovative online shopping experience."
The installation launched November 18 and continues through December 16.
