Business etiquette [guest post by Ellie Summers]

/
You know they say you have seven seconds to make a good first impression? And then there’s the other adage “First impressions last”. Combine these two and your first few moments during a business meeting become crucial to your future success. And this thought may cause you some anxiety. Are you adept at hiding this?
PNet - advertising campaign

For the ones wishing a better job

/
This post is dedicated to those who are bored and annoyed by their actual job, it’s for tthose who wish for a better job this new year. For you, I selected the waking up advertising campaign created by PNet a few months ago: this should help you visualise your actual condition and understand that “a better job is waiting”, as the headline recites.
Heathrow Airport - brand experience

Keep wondering

/
You don’t know yet, but among my resolutions for the New Year that I wish myself the most is to keep wondering, to be surprised and curious, to be able to look at things as if it was the first time I discovered them. Heathrow Airport in one of their latest commercials have expressed this wish perfectly.
Finish - advertising campaign

Nobody loves doing dishes

/
NOBODY loves doing dishes, especially around Christmas when hordes of relatives and friends are unavoidably attending and sharing each meal of the day, multiplying enormously the quantity of dishes to wash. Even Finish, the star specialised in dishwashing detergent, have admitted that and have transformed it in a commercial. Watch the video, if you don’t believe me!
Hotels.com - promotional campaign

How to get through winter

/
Today, when the exclamation “Winter is coming!” has never been so true, I’d love to share one of the past promotional campaigns created by Hotels.com. I chose the one they used to launch the initiative “Winter Swear Jar”, a new way to help Canadians to better tolerate their cold winter. The campaign is a bit old but it has the ability to vividly summarise the concept of “winter” and perfectly relate to this time of the year.
Eurostar - advertising campaign

Be prepared to go on holiday

/
What’s the difference between your ordinary daily life and you being on holiday? Eurostar have made a quite accurate synthesis of what we can call – and they call – “the travel state of mind”. And with a few days to separate us from the Christmas break, it can be useful to keep in mind the few “rules” they point out. ;)
Abloy - storytelling

Locker storytelling

/
This year Abloy celebrate their 110th anniversary and Finland’s most noticeable invention: the lock. In order to solemnise the occasion, the company has created a very entertaining piece of branded content, an advertising campaign focused on storytelling about “The Immortal Mr. Henriksson”.
Russell Hobbs - advertising campaign

The Art and The Living

/
Russell Hobbs, home appliances producer, have created an inspiring advertising campaign to make clear the brand experience they can offer, but practically they have written an amazing manifesto containing the meaning of art and the essence of living. All in less than a one minute commercial. Have a look! ;)
Stockholm Country Break - web campaign

How to “escape” from Stockholm

/
There are plenty of guides, both offline and online, ready to be consulted when someone has to plan and prepare any sort of trip in a major city. But what about the surroundings? That was certainly the starting point for the team that worked on top10stockholm.com by Stockholm Country Break, the website aimed to attract Stockholm tourists to also experience the Swedish countryside.
