Food waste: perception is far from reality

/
During the last decade, waste has become a worldwide issue connected with environmental protection and climate change. One side of the problem stands on the facts that people are often not aware of the results of their actions as they really occur. Unfortunately, food waste isn't an exception: here are some data.
Statista - EU 2019 Gender Equality Index

Gender equality

/
This Sunday is going to be Women's Day. So this seems to me a good occasion to share the 2019 Gender Equality Index. Advances in this field cannot be considered completely satisfactory, however we have made some progress in Europe. Let us work even harder to achieve new goals in the next future.
Brooks - promotional campaign

Run for travel

/
Running is not my cup of tea. I can walk indefinitely, but running is an activity that I dislike wholeheartedly. Anyway, apparently, lots of people love running, lots of travellers – especially Millennials – are interested in finding the perfect spot to have a run even when they are on holiday or on a business trip. For them, last summer Miami Ad School ideated a promotional campaign “Run the world” used by Brooks, running shoes USA brand.
IBIS - direct marketing

Ibis and the odd direct marketing

/
I couldn’t stop myself bringing this direct marketing campaign to your attention, even if I tried to forget about it and postpone it, but this is so odd and sort of funny, at the end I’ve decided to give in and share. Ibis, the famous hotel chain, in order to create awareness for one of their value added services – the Ibis business card – has created a very special offer for customers that own the card. Suspense.
Tim Hortons - brand experience

Take a coffee with your neighbour [Tim Hortons]

/
Is everyone back from holiday? My blog is! As a good purpose for this restart of the year, I’ll follow the advice of Tim Hortons advertising campaign and take a coffee more often with one of my neighbours. The coffee brand have organised a social experiment in Canada using the “coffee’s power” and its brand experience convincing neighbours to “properly” meet and chat for the first time. The result is fantastic.
Edeka - ambient marketing

Diversity in supermarket

/
In recent years the world seems to have gone mad and many countries – including UK and Italy, unfortunately – have developed “attitudes” that are not very inclusive towards diversity, be it in terms of gender, origin or lifestyle. I was looking for a good example able to show the reason why those “attitudes” are profoundly wrong and absurd when I bumped into the powerful ambient marketing activity organised some months ago by Edeka, a German supermarket chain. Curious? Read on!
Greenfield Natural Meat - social campaign

Meatless on Mondays

/
Greenfield Natural Meat Co., in order to prove they truly believe in sustainability, have launched a social campaign to encourage people to go “meatless on Monday”. That is their contribution to lower the consumption level of meat and guarantee a better meat quality in the market.
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.
Angfa - direct marketing

Wash your hands… and your book

/
Angfa, a Japanese soap company, has had an admirable and sophisticated idea. In order to communicate the importance of hygiene and in particular of washing hands to the children of Cambodia, they’ve created a very special book for them.
