I just got back from doing another Immersion Experience, this time in Haida Gwaii.
Danny Escott is a master fishing captain with over 24 years of experience. His lodge, Escott Sportfishing is perfectly located in Masset to take advantage of salmon runs when the fish are largest and most abundant.
He is planning a rebrand and asked me to do an Immersion Experience to fully understand his company before moving forward.
My art director and I spent four days working from within, experiencing the adventure like guests would, taking pictures, talking to the staff and guests and of course, fishing, to get a feel for the best way to position Escott Sportfishing in the crowded fishing resort market.
It turns out that Escott definitely has a unique point of differentiation, and it was one that we wouldn’t be able to truly appreciate or articulate without experiencing the adventure firsthand: Danny has the best guides. The experience is intimate. Personal. And it’s all about the fishing. After spending hours on the water, and surveying the areas around Masset, we could confidently move forward with a positioning that more personal and professional than any of its competitors.
