Quicken Loan - app

Life translator

/
Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could have a sort of translator for all those situations in which it is quite difficult to understand specific jargon or simple subtexts in a discussion? Quicken Loans claim to have created an app that helps with mortgage understanding and they have launched their product using a very appealing and empathetic advertising campaign.
FCB Amsterdam - online campaign

Women have thick skin

/
In 4 days it will be International Women’s Day. An occasion to remember that equality and diversity aren’t antonyms and that human kind needs, desperately, both, along with politeness, respect for everyone and openness of mind. Last year I discovered the powerful and poetical campaign of FCB Amsterdam dedicated to women's empowerment and I’ve kept it aside for today.

Visit Faroe Islands - awareness campaign

Google sheep view

/
Yes, you did read the title of this post correctly. It’s about a surprisingly creative idea that Visit Faroe Islands have had in order to promote tourism in those islands, a stunning landscape but very far from the usually beaten path, so far that not even Google Street View had discovered it already.
Eniro - storytelling

Don’t forget the online channels

/
How would you link a passion for meatballs with online visibility? Eniro reached this goal creating an inspiring advertising campaign. They have amazingly used the storytelling approach in order to gain the full attention of their audience and their empathy. Watch the video to see the full story.

Love vs Mobile

Technology, devices, and smartphones in particular are extremely important today and they allow us to stay open and closer to the rest of the world, they ease our life in a variety of ways and multiply endlessly our possibility to communicate with others. Nevertheless we should keep in mind that these tools can also be used in the wrong way, causing negative effects in our life. Here are two examples by Telefonica of troubling situations involving mobile phones and related to love. With my wish for a Happy Valentine Day! ;)
