Masako_Okamura_Aug2014.jpgIn March this year it was announced that Masako Okamura, a veteran creative director from Dentsu Tokyo, was to move from Tokyo to take up the executive creative  director role at Dentsu Vietnam.

It represented a large coup for the Dentsu Asia network to recruit such a high profile and highly regarded Japanese creative director to move to the Vietnam market.

Okamura has many accolades under her belt having won awards at shows like Cannes, Clio, Spikes Asia, London International Awards and AdFest. She has also been a part of the juries for Clio, YoungGuns International Advertising Awards, AdFest, Cannes, Spikes Asia, One Show, New York Festivals and Art Directors Club.

Having been on board in Vietnam now for three months, Campaign Brief Asia took the opportunity to catch up with Okamura to find out what are her first impressions of the Vietnamese market and what really made her want to leave the safety of the large Dentsu Tokyo agency and take on this new role at Dentsu in Vietnam.

"A few factors led me to work outside of Japan," explains Okamura. "In the last couple of years, I was given the opportunity to work on a couple of overseas projects where I thoroughly enjoyed the experience. That aside, I had also received several tempting offers from headhunters, which surprised me, given that I've only had the experience of working in Japan.

Atuk_1.jpgAtuk_2.jpgNissan Malaysia has released a Hari Raya short film based on family and love. A Malaysian production, it is a heart-warming short film about a grandfather and his grandson.

They both take separate journeys - one down memory lane, and the other of self-discovery - only to end up in the same place at the end. A wonderful reminder that when everything is gone, all we have left is our family.

This is the first time Edaran Tan Chong Holdings Berhad has collaborated with Creative Juice Kuala Lumpur, for a Hari Raya campaign. It was best time for families get-together and intended to drive home the message that Nissan is always with you, throughout all stages of your life. This short film hopes to strengthen brand familiarity of Nissan in Malaysia.

Simon Veksner: Emotions, weird shit and babies

As we all know, emotional advertising is far more effective than rational advertising.

Many clients have read about this, and are now specifically requesting emotional advertising.

Cool.

Hunk VS Old guys_2.jpgJunior Vs. Senior_2.jpgMashal Sports with the support of the International Kabaddi Federation (IKF) and the Amateur Kabaddi Federation of India (AKFI) have teamed up to launch Pro Kabaddi with Star Sports being the official broadcast partner.

While Kabaddi, a wrestling sport originating from very early Indian civilization, has successfully progressed from an Indian sport to one played in the international arena, it fails to connect with the youth of today. It was no longer cool and this was the biggest challenge.

Through the 'Life is Kabaddi' campaign, Ogilvy and Mather attempts to engage the youth at an emotional level with this intrinsically Indian game; make them see the game in a whole new light.

HMV_Nipper.jpgHMV_Nipper2.jpgHMV, the traditional home of music around the globe, has virtually disappeared from the streets of Hong Kong in recent years. And Nipper the dog - featured in HMV's instantly recognizable logo - had once again lost a master whose voice he could listen to due to his homeless plight.
 
But this summer, Nipper will find a new home at HMVideal - a new flagship experiential store opening first in Hong Kong's fittingly named Entertainment Building in Central, before rolling out around the globe.
 
To celebrate Nipper's heartening reversal of fortune, we dramatized his current homeless situation. With a small nod to Hong Kong's equally iconic 'bag lady', McCann Worldgroup Hong Kong recreated a homeless person on the streets of Central, with Nipper beside him, to tell caring passers-by the story of Nipper's fall and coming rise and to urge them to help him find a new master's voice at HMVideal.

ITSA.jpgOn the anniversary of Sir David Ogilvy's death, ITSA India released a strategically placed billboard outside Ogilvy & Mather's office in Gurgaon.

Emmanuel Upputuru, Founder, Chief Integrated Officer, ITSA said, "We did this as a light take on the father of advertising's rule on outdoor. Alot of times we hear that the outdoor medium is a transit medium and therefore we needed to keep the message short. While it's true, as a general principle, but in many places in India there is a huge amount of traffic moving slowly. ITSA also believes in practicing what it preaches. Have a point of view and flaunt it."  

Clarence Chiew.jpg12:20 is a Sydney based creative consultancy that works with agencies across Asia. Recently, while working in the region, Christian Finucane and Jon Skinner met with 20 creative leaders from the top agencies to discuss the opportunities and challenges for the industry. The interviews, '12 Questions: 20 People' are being published in a series of blog posts on Campaign Brief Asia. The 19th interview is with Clarence Chiew, Executive Creative Director, Leo Burnett Singapore.

What's the most exciting thing about working in Asia?
I don't see why working in Asia should be any more exciting than working anywhere else in the world, especially in such a globalised context.

What inspires you?
The internet and its ability to completely disrupt everything we hold to be true.

How has social media impacted creativity in the region?
I think it used to have a positive and democratic impact in terms of the level playing field it created - if people loved what you created, it would get noticed, shared and amplified. Since then, the algorithm seems to have been tweaked to favour those with more money than ideas.
AB 2.jpgAxis Bank and Lowe Lintas Mumbai have unveiled myideaofprogress.com, one of the largest consumer engagement initiatives undertaken in the banking industry. The initiative will see the entire network of Axis Bank actively promoting the philosophy along with a 360 media campaign on TV, digital, outdoor and radio to reach out to as many people as possible.

The website, built by Indigo, is a unique attempt by an Indian bank to involve people beyond transactions and get them to experience the bank through its beliefs and to reach out to them so that they get to like the bank for what it does.
Mulberry MainImage_landscape.jpgBritish luxury leather brand Mulberry has partnered with the brand's lead China digital agency Hot Pot Digital to bring a richer digital experience for Chinese consumers through the launch of the brand's official WeChat account.

The WeChat account allows users to explore Mulberry's collection of iconic leather goods and new products while providing exclusive rich content unavailable on other channels. Mulberry launched on Weibo last year as a first step into the Chinese social media world and creating a WeChat account was a logical next step.
Beer1.jpgBeer shampoo believes that every man is entitled to buy his own manly Beer Shampoo for his "manhair". While every man would be tempted to, there was a practical barrier. In most cases, the lady of the house reserves the first right to the shopping cart. Hence, it becomes critical for the brand to encourage the lady of the house to buy into Beer Shampoo. This new tvc from Publicis Worldwide India was developed as a tool to warm up the lady to the needs of her man.

VW POLO.jpgA drive in the New 2014 Polo is quite indescribable. In fact, very few things feel as good. This is the premise behind DDB Mudra West's latest Volkswagen commercial for the Indian market. The idea was born out of drawing parallels to the few moments in life that feel as good.

Like all Volkswagen commercials, this one too needed to be endearing and simple, yet entertaining at the same time. Taking forward the thought of 'Feels that good', the film illustrates the story of two brothers. The younger of the two always gets the raw end of the stick, as he ends up with all the 'hand-me-downs' from his cooler older sibling. From school books to uniforms to shoes and even bicycles, it's always second-hand. Ultimately, the story takes a big turn. The younger brother, now all grown up, comes into his own when we see him driving the sparkling New Polo, while his older sibling is still using a nondescript old car.
