Probably because I’m looking forward to my next opportunity for international travel, I’ve been attracted by one not-so-recent Emirates’ advertising campaign. Focusing on their reputation that – according to Tripadvisor – paints the airline as having “the best economy class in the world”, Emirates have created a commercial aimed to underline the quality of their offer, even the basic one.
This year the Big Mac has turned 50. With the aim to celebrate this important anniversary, McDonald’s managed to convince another icon of the food and beverage sector – Coca Cola – to pay their respects and join the historical celebration organising an unprecedented co-branding action: a limited edition Coca Cola can.
How to recycle or upcycle cardboard boxes? Miami Ad School have had a fantastic idea to solve this issue. In order to give a new life to IKEA packages and give kids invaluable experiences, they have transformed the cardboard boxes that come with furniture into play kits.
In Spring and Autumn I usually feel that the house is in need of reorganisation. It should be because I have to swap clothes and shoes in order to get ready for the winter season, so everything seems to be in the wrong place. And there is always something missing: a box, a bulb, a certain tool… But now, fortunately, we have Amazon which, via one of their latest advertising campaigns, promises to provide “Everything you need from A to Z”!
Transavia have had a very powerful idea, play with the importance of having great pictures of every holiday. Focusing on that they have created a contest and an advertising campaign with the aim to promote their flights, but also to underline that there is the possibility of having more traveling experiences to photograph, even going back to the same places, according to the brand’s low prices.
Holidays are over, for almost everyone. In a few weeks’ time, the entire autumn routine will be in place again. I’m going to borrow one of the IKEA advertising campaigns as a memo in order not to forget to make room for passions and friends even in the busiest period of the year. This is the right thing to do, I promise! 🙂
My blog goes on vacation until September. I hope you’ll miss it! 😉 In the meantime, I wish you a marvellous summer and I leave you with a very unexpected tip for your holidays: as I discovered from the Thomas Henry’s advertising campaign, you can use tonic to avoid mosquitos bites. Have a look at their commercial if you don’t believe me 😉
The aim of strategic marketing is being able to answer the new needs of an individual with new ideas and then new products. Nivea have discovered a new necessity behind the trend of sportsmen – and not just them – shaving almost all their bodies and the brand have answered this with a new product – launching it thanks to an appealing advertising campaign.
