Fellow Barber, a brand of barbershops with 15+ locations across Los Angeles, New York City and San Francisco, tasked 5W with not only awareness of their namesake product line up, but focused visibility on their regional locations, to drive foot traffic and brand affinity.

5W implemented smart, timely pitching tactics to garner top-tier features across digital and broadcast outlets, with both national and regional reaches. To secure these features 5W got creative, focusing on the chain's charitable "Pay What You Can Program" as well as the opening of new locations such as their first-ever Flagship, tying these programs to the ultimate booming growth of the barbering industry post-pandemic. This helped expand the focus beyond product features and barber expertise and allowed for strong consumer-interest pieces with a narrow focus on the business' locations themselves.
