Fundable + Staples
Digital Campaign


When two names like Fundable and Staples come together, you know something great is about to happen. Together, they created the #Crowd2Shelf campaign—a crowdfunding contest for emerging product companies. The tournament consisted of two stages: first, gain an audience of supporters, second, crowdfund to reach your goal. Three categories of winners were chosen: The People’s Product, The Crowdfunding Hero, and The Judge’s Favorite.

ZoCo was tasked with developing the visual strategy for the campaign, blending the Fundable and Staples brands in order to encourage product applications and community interaction for the startups. The result was a successful campaign that produced five incredible winners.
