“BE ALL YOU CAN BE” tagline brand assetsU.S. Army

The U.S. Army has introduced a new marketing campaign for a new generation. Bringing back one of its most successful advertising taglines, “BE ALL YOU CAN BE,” the revived slogan aims to reach the Gen Z demographic. For the first time since the licensing program’s inception in 2001, a new U.S. Army logo will be offered on products, and the revived tagline will be incorporated into the branch’s style guide for its consumer product portfolio.

The new U.S. Army brand assets will enable existing licensees to reintroduce, capitalize and continue growing its top-performing SKUs with the updated logo and tagline, as well as invite a new set of licensees to join the program and extend the brand to reach the younger audience. With a sleeker, modern and fashion-forward aesthetic in mind, the updated branding will aid in the program’s focus on signing licensees that appeal to both the female and Gen Z demographics, as neutral color palettes, sleeker fonts and an emphasis on Americana styles become trendier for these consumers.

“We are excited to bring the new U.S. Army logo and tagline to a new generation of fans,” says Maya Kobray, associate vice president, brand management, Beanstalk. “The licensing program has continued to withstand the test of time, and we are so proud to represent this evergreen property in this new iteration. As soon as we announced the new U.S. Army logo and tagline on March 8, our licensees quickly got to work. The new U.S. Army logo has already been spotted on licensee DTC websites and will continue to roll out at retail for 2023 and beyond.”

The U.S. Army is a veteran of the licensing industry. With over 20 years under its belt and 10 years as a member of SPLiCE, its licensing program spans over 150 product categories.

“We are proud to introduce a new U.S. Army marketing campaign,” says Paul Jensen, director, Army Trademark Licensing Program. “The modern patterns and colors will enable new and existing licensees to reload their arsenal of designs in ways that both celebrate the preexisting power of the marks and offer new consumer touchpoints for younger generations to engage with the beloved American institution.”
