Macerich wanted to create a better understanding of their relationship with their retailers and asked Panzano to create a national campaign that would show how Macerich was committed to the success of their most important partners.
 
The intent was to take these international brands and give them a human face. They weren’t just impersonal brands, but real people, and Macerich, by extension was in their personal orbit. That’s how well they knew their retailers.

Telling personal stories of legendary entrepreneurs in order to get across a larger brand message.

Panzano determined that the best way to show we understand the minds and needs of retailers was to prove we actually knew the retailers. We created a series of ads that featured Entrepreneurs, CEOs, and visionaries. We told their story, and not the story of Macerich. Through a series of interviews and portrait sessions, we created an ad campaign that delved into the personalities and unique characteristics of who each people was as a person, not as a business leader.
