PeterSchelstraete.jpgThe Spikes Asia Festival of Creativity, has today announced that it will be giving the sought after Advertiser of the Year award to The Coca-Cola Company - Asia Pacific.

Says Terry Savage, chairman of Lions Festivals: "Over the last few years we have seen Coca-Cola bringing home numerous awards for their marketing efforts. The purpose of the Advertiser of the Year Award is to recognise those clients who have distinguished themselves through the quality of their campaigns and innovative marketing; in other words, clients that are not afraid to embrace new ideas. Last year Coca-Cola were awarded 14 trophies across seven of the entry categories at Spikes Asia, proving that this is a well-deserved accolade that they can now add to their achievements."
IKEA-TEMPE-1.jpgThree Australian families bedded down at IKEA Tempe in Sydney last night after applying for the most unique Airbnb listing, that caught the attention of IKEA fans all around the world. The campaign was via The Monkeys with PR by Mango and Espresso Communications.

Shortlisted from more than 1000 entries, the three families who convinced IKEA hosts they were most worthy of this once in a lifetime stay, arrived as the Tempe store's registers were shutting down and doors were closing for the day.

Luce Grelli - ECD S&S Fallon Tokyo4.jpgLuca Grelli has joined Saatchi & Saatchi Fallon Tokyo as Executive Creative Director as of today. Grelli's global career has taken him to cities such as Milan, Amsterdam and New York, with agencies such as Wieden+Kennedy, 180/TBWA, Johannes Leonardo and Razorfish.
Working on international brands such as Nike, IKEA, Bacardi and Adidas, the 19-year creative veteran has helped create consumer experiences for brands that go well beyond traditional and digital realms. One example of this was the Mercedes-Benz Tweet Race, where four driving teams had to rely on supporters' tweets to move their car every single mile.

Scary-BBDO.jpgI kinda like this new ad for GE, by BBDO New York.

The message is that new ideas are scary, and can only thrive in a welcoming environment.

I bet the ad will resonate with many ad Creatives, who'll feel it's an equally valid commentary on our own industry.

But is it actually true? READ ON...

SAMSUNG BLACK CAT HERO[6][1].jpgNew Zealand: Black cats have been in the news lately due to the fact that they are being abandoned, and all because they don't take good selfies. The RSPCA in the UK reported that 70 percent of cats waiting for adoptions are black and one of the reasons people are ignoring them is they are trickier to photograph.

Samsung New Zealand, via Colenso BBDO Auckland, thought it could help and quickly reacted with a smart social campaign that offered a practical solution for all cat lovers whilst at the same time highlighting features of their latest smartphone, the Samsung GS5.

Working with renowned animal photographer Rachael Hale McKenna and the Auckland SPCA Samsung ran a very special photo-shoot that demonstrated how to take better photos of black cats, so people everywhere can help resolve the problem of abandoned or un-adopted cats


TBWA\Shanghai launches new adidas campaign

Adidas_1.jpgAdidas_2.jpgTBWA\Shanghai is behind the release of the new adidas Originals #thisisme# campaign.

In the campaign the entire adidas Originals family, including actress Fan Bingbing and the King of Asian Pop, Eason Chan - showcase their #thisisme# moment throughout the campaign. Consumers are encouraged to take part in the campaign to express their own personal #thisisme# story.

#thisisme# kicked off a teaser campaign starting July 28 on the streets of Shanghai and Beijing, where stencils featuring the #thisisme# hashtag were posted on street hot spots. On August 12, the campaign continues with a #thisisme# branded bus that will tour Beijing, Tianjin, Xi'an, Chengdu, Guangzhou, Hangzhou and Shanghai for seven weeks, boosting awareness of #thisisme# and the ZX FLUX. Users will be encouraged to take pictures on the bus for their #thisisme# portraits and post their images on social media such as Weibo and WeChat.
Pictionary_2.jpgMattel Southeast Asia teamed with digitally-led marketing agency VML Qais to launch the new Singapore version of family classic Pictionary, resulting in a 20% uplift in sales. Mattel had proudly produced Pictionary Singapore, a local version of its family favourite containing famous Singapore landmarks, dishes and of course words from inimitable local slang 'Singlish and launched it in the lead up to Singapore's National Day 49th birthday on Saturday 9th August 2014.

VML Qais had just four weeks to generate buzz and genuine engagement in the run up to Pictionary Singapore's National Day launch. Given the importance of this national holiday, and significant activity around the annual parade and live telecast, traditional advertising tends to be cluttered. Brand messaging tends to utilise print and TV to either wish Singapore a Happy Birthday, or to wish Singaporeans a Happy National Day. The challenge was to engage people and brands in a meaningful way. The agency's scope of work included campaign strategy and implementation; art direction, content creation and community management/engagement; media strategy, planning, buy and implementation.

Jaideep Shergill - CEO, MSLGROUP India - Low Res.jpgMSLGroup India has been appointed as public relations support for India Economic Summit 2014. Following a close collaboration for almost three decades, the World Economic Forum, together with the Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), will host this year's meeting in New Delhi, India, from 4 to 6 November 2014. Over 800 participants will participate under the meeting's working theme, Redefining Public Private Cooperation for a New Beginning.

As India undertook the largest democratic exercise in history to elect a new government, the world is now waiting to see how the country will use its pluralist fundamentals to create a shared vision of a prosperous and equitable India. Today, India enjoys the unparalleled advantage of a population of which more than half is under 25 years of age. This large segment of the population offers vigour for new solutions, greater transparency but also a strong demand for jobs. As exciting as it is to reap the benefits of this demographic dividend, it is equally important to address the inequalities of access and resources that persist in India.
Wow.jpgAs a brand which is for the progressive man, the team at Publicis India wanted to redefine the locus of manhood and take it beyond the one-dimensional 'attraction of women'. This was achieved by defining Storm as the essence of manhood itself independently. We looked into all the things apart from attracting women, which inherently made men 'Wow'. And this is how 'Smell like Wow' was born. The creative execution brought it alive in the form of an engaging and endearing ode to modern manhood.

AdStars4_P1080603.jpgAdStars has announced a major increase in the cash prizes being offered by the festival to the Grand Prix winners.

THFJ Holland V.jpgWalt Disney Studio Motion Pictures has collaborated with Clear Channel Singapore to create a scented OOH campaign to promote 'The Hundred-Foot Journey', opening in cinemas on 28th August 2014.

Produced by Steven Speilberg and Oprah Winfrey, "The Hundred-Foot Journey" abounds with flavours that burst across the tongue. The opening of a new Indian restaurant in the south of France, next to a famous Michelin starred eatery, is nearly cause for an all-out war between the two establishments until Le Saule Pleureur's icy proprietress Madame Mallory (Academy Award winner, Helen Mirren) recognizes her rival's undeniable brilliance for preparing masterful meals. A stimulating triumph over exile, blossoming with passion and heart, with marjoram and madras, it is a portrayal of two worlds colliding and one boy's drive to find the comfort of home, in every pot, wherever he may be.

As part of an integrated campaign that promotes the culinary-centric film, Disney collaborated exclusively with Clear Channel and m/SIX, for an interactive OOH campaign that diffuses the scent of garlic to capture the attention of commuters. A custom built casing placed at the side of panel houses the diffuser that sprays the aromatic scent periodically. Curious commuters can also interact with the panel by pushing the button to release the scent on demand. Garlic was chosen over other food scents because of its unique smell. Also, it is famously known to be a common denominator between Indian and French cuisine.

Emmanuel Upputuru.jpgITSA Brand Innovations in India is partnering with dotDesi (.desi), a new generic top level domain (gTLD) in launching and marketing the brand to audiences in India, the subcontinent and "desis"worldwide. DotDesi is at the forefront of an online revolution that is going to sweep the Internet and change it forever.

A paradigm shift is occurring - challenging what used to be the go-to generic top level domains (gTLDs) like".com",".org", ".biz".  The next generation of domain names will increasingly bring communities together, fostering collaboration and creating and new sense of identity.   Of all the choices that are expected to arrive over the next several years, few have the potential to make as much of an impact as .desi.

It is an expression of unity recognized instantly by close to 1.7billion people worldwide.   Increasingly, all things 'desi' are gaining global appeal and entering the mainstream.
