The Campaign

Through a simple logo change, we revealed the inspiring true story of Claudia Sanders, wife of Colonel Sanders – the '12th Secret Ingredient' in KFC's success. Its timely revelation on International Women's Day allowed us to celebrate the many Claudias among us – our staff; our customers; our stronger, better halves.

Creative Execution

On March 8th, International Women’s Day, we replaced the Colonel's logo with someone the world knew little about. His wife – Claudia Sanders. The design approach was to emulate the style of the original Colonel logo. We then celebrated her pivotal role in the success of KFC through our social and digital assets including Instagram Stories, Facebook postings, and microsite. It was a simple logo takeover but the whole world noticed.

Indication of how successful the outcome was in the market

KFC spent just $1,000 to push out the Claudia Sanders digital campaign but the response went beyond local shores. - $1.3 billion impressions. - Featured on Elite Daily, USA Today, Fox News, Fortune, Business Insider, Design Taxi, Marketing Week, among others. Not forgetting, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and The Ellen DeGeneres Show. - Reshared by other KFC markets including Thailand, Panama and Costa Rica. - Earned media value of more than $2 million. Sometimes the best way to change the world is to simply share a secret.
