Spring/Summer campaign

Yogi footwear approached G&T to conceptualise, photograph, direct and manage the production of their latest 2020 Spring/Summer campaign.

 

First, our production team were briefed to find a model duo that fitted the brand personality. Our thinking wasn’t to find another model but someone, along with the concept, that could help raise the brand profile. After a long extensive search, we approached actor and Rizzle Kicks star Jordan Stephens and the beautiful quirky model Coral Kwayie.

 

To give the shoot a cool relaxed vibe we sourced an old east end boozer that is used for films as our backdrop. The result created a suite of fashion images that helped to reinvigorate the Yogi brand across their marketing channels.

Hacking Hurts

Kaspersky

Hacking Hurts

Your data is precious. If it’s hacked, it can affect almost every aspect of your life –  like being locked out of social accounts, having your photos shared, or even having your bank account emptied. When digital-security experts Kaspersky sought to raise awareness of this serious issue, we turned to a digital star.

G&T hooked up with YouTuber Josh Pieters to create a privacy prank that made a serious point. In our hidden camera film, Josh showed his friend Sophia Tuxford the consequences of unwittingly sharing your data.

As Josh took Sophia for a stroll around Birmingham city centre, she was presented with her own personal information in a variety of unexpected ways. From her name and number on the side of a passing van, to a busker singing about her recent holidays, the clues became more obvious and alarming. Climaxing with a whole marching band wearing T-shirts emblazoned with pictures from Sophia’s Instagram feed.

With an 18-strong crew, we captured each shocking moment in secret, including Sophia’s priceless reactions. Delivering a highly engaging piece of social content that drove home a timely message.

DubbelDusch

Social media content for brand awareness

Iconic Scandinavian brand DubbelDusch had embarked upon a brand awareness exercise using some beautifully shot extreme sports footage.

The trouble was, the films had failed to achieve the desired results, delivering zero uplift in brand equity and awareness among their target audience of young men. The final execution lacked spark, energy and the right treatment to appeal to this segment.

Using all our learnings from a Facebook Creative Hack and many successful social media content campaigns, we added bold new twists to the original footage.

The bold, impactful captions we created gave the films gravitas and made the content more thumbstopping than ever before. Our short, punchy edits of the footage communicated the key brand messages quickly and with purpose and by creating specific edits for key Google affinity groups we tailored specific messages for specific audience, giving relevance.

The result: A significant uplift in both brand awareness and brand affinity.

Group rebrand

Global Infusion Group

Group rebrand

For over 30 years, Global Infusion Group have been serving up backstage hospitality and logistics at the world’s biggest shows and events. But as the business had grown into different divisions with separate identities, we were hired to create a new master brand – uniting every part of GIG and working across all marketing materials.

In close collaboration with our brand planning partners, we distilled six different identities into just two. These were given a fresh new look that could sit comfortably alongside the old style in the short term (while larger items like signage were updated) and also deliver longevity for the future.

Then, to make life easier for GIG’s global offices and army of suppliers, we developed a comprehensive brand book. This provided clear guidance on everything from mission statements to colour palettes, helping everyone bring the new brand to life in their day-to-day work.

Finally, we announced GIG’s bold new look to the world, via a multi-channel marketing campaign and totally transformed website. Giving this successful, established name a dynamic new global profile.

All our work has had a huge impact on the business, contributing to one of GiG’s biggest ever client wins for a major international event.

Thank you so much for taking the ‘confusion’ out of our ‘infusion’.

We love it all and are really excited now we are rolling it all out!

Father’s Day

nivea men

Father's Day 2018

It’s an alarming fact. 60% of dads don’t expect to receive anything on Father’s Day. Our campaign for NIVEA MEN addressed this by giving one devoted father (and Liverpool FC supporter) a very special thank you.

We created a programme of highly engaging and emotive social content to help dads get what they’re due. First, we invited Liverpool fans to video themselves saying, “thanks dad”. Then came some added star power, as five LFC stars thanked their own fathers and told us how their dads had influenced their lives and careers.

These videos drove viewers to a custom landing page where they could nominate their dads for a fantastic prize. With the winner chosen, our central piece of content showed Liverpool FC Legend Robbie Fowler surprising the winning dad at home and presenting them with the ultimate LFC fan experience.

Powered by a smart social strategy, our film drove engagement in the run-up to Father’s Day to raise awareness and stimulate sales – and remind people everywhere to say, “thanks dad”.

With the run up to Wimbledon 2018 we were challenged with the task of launching Ellesse’s new tennis wear. We had the pleasure of working with Britain’s No.2 Cameron Norrie and gave him a great workout on the shoot to get some spectacular action shots with a twist. Above is one in a series of shots for Wimbledon which featured in an outdoor campaign round London. The rest of the campaign for Ellesse’s 2018/19 tennis wear will be launched later in the year.
