BRUNNER Showcases the Backyard Wonders of the World
New campaign for YellaWood challenges consumers to turn their backyards into an outdoor oasis

Pittsburgh, PA. (April 26, 2017) – To you, your backyard is your Great Wall of China. It’s your hanging Gardens of Babylon. It’s your Great Pyramid. And in YellaWood’s latest campaign from BRUNNER, “Crowning Achievement,” the backyard becomes one of today’s “wonders of the world.”

Building on last year’s “Decklaration of Independence” campaign, these new spots showcase how common backyard projects like treehouses and pergolas can create the ultimate backyard oasis.

“Our goal was to bring the indoors outside in the most compelling way possible,” said Rob Schapiro, Chief Creative Officer at BRUNNER. “Lumber is a basic building material, but it’s what you do with it that can turn it into something simply breathtaking and the projects highlighted in the commercials are a great example of that.”

Taking this insight to its extremes, the “Treehouse” commercial was shot at a treehouse in Atlanta’s Buckhead neighborhood. It’s Airbnb’s most popular listings, worldwide, and offered a majestic backdrop complete with shabby chic outdoor living.

The team behind the new campaign includes:

  • Chief Creative Officer: Rob Schapiro
  • Creative Director: Dave Vissat
  • Associate Creative Director: Dan Magdich
  • Senior Copywriter: Jeff Shill
