The innovation can be found in Moore + Associate’s approach. Strategically, they are trying to create new spaces by blending worlds that don't often exist: politics and humor or politics and fashion. In this way, they engage people who are political, but who do not spend their time working professionally in politics. As a result, the company uses different language that is often more liberated and direct. The goal is to develop campaigns or a message that can breakthrough and engage new and different people in the political process.
