Pearlfisher: Little Dish ‘Vision, voice and packaging structures’

Agency: Pearlfisher
Client: Little Dish
Date: September 2016
In 2006, Pearlfisher created the first chilled food brand designed specifically for toddlers and young children. Ten years on, Little Dish has become the icon of the Kids’ Chilled Meals category, but as an increasing number of brands follow in their footsteps, the pioneers of healthy food for kids wanted to rewrite the rules and set a new standard in children’s nutrition.
Having worked in partnership with nutritionist and Mum, Lucy Jones, to create a new range of perfectly nutritionally balanced toddler meals, called Little Dish pots & pies, Little Dish turned to Pearlfisher to develop a vision, voice and series of packaging structures that would bring the unrivalled nutritional credentials of the new meals to the fore.

Karmarama: Plusnet ‘Made That Way’

Agency: Karmarama
Client: Plusnet
Date: September 2016
Plusnet has launched an online video campaign as part of its direct response activity, aimed at targeting people in the market for renewing their broadband.
The campaign comprises of multiple creative variants aimed to leverage the various formats in which online ads are now served. Brand front man ‘Plusnet Joe’ pokes fun at the situations we often find ourselves in when faced with ‘yet another ad’ by cutting through to the unassuming viewer and making light of the situation.
The skippable formats aim to encourage viewers to stick around a bit longer rather than just hitting the skip button as soon as it’s presented, whilst the forced executions acknowledge the truth that they’ll be intruding on the viewers own time for the next 30 seconds and there’s not much the viewer or Joe can really do about it.

Ogilvy & Mather Italy: Wind ‘Con i tuoi occhi (With Your Eyes)’

Agency: Ogilvy & Mather Italy
Client: Wind
Date: September 2016
After “Dad,” and “A great day”, again this year Wind and Ogilvy & Mather have come together to produce a short subject that explores man’s relationship with communication—a poetic, yet light-hearted film that invites us all to use technology in a more conscious manner.
The main character is a teenage girl who, like all her peers, lives in constant contact with her smartphone. It is her faithful companion, which she uses to take photos, make videos, and share every moment of her day online. The message conveyed by the film, however, is that there are moments which are to be experienced without the filter of an electronic device—moments that are best saved in one’s heart. By the end of the film, the young teen comes to this realization and puts down her phone in order to more fully enjoy her little sister’s dance recital, while everyone else has their face hidden behind their electronic filters.
Once again, Wind and Ogilvy & Mather have produced a work of great relevance to our times, inviting us to take a close look at how we use technology and telling an important story with the directorial contribution of a sensitive poet in his own right, Giuseppe Capotondi. It is the story of one small gesture, but one that is rich with meaning, that of the need to set aside our phones once in a while and to once again look at life through our own two eyes.

DDB Brussels: IKEA ‘Meet the Stars’

Agency: DDB Brussels
Client: IKEA
Date: September 2016
IKEA Belgium launched its new catalogue, and it did so with a surprisingly tongue-in-cheek ad, reminding us just how funny a bruised ego can be. A 2-minute commercial takes us behind the scenes of the 2017 IKEA catalogue photoshoot, and into the minds of the models featured in the iconic catalogue.
The IKEA catalogue is one of the most read books in the world. So it makes sense for the models to consider this their breakthrough moment. Their door opener to stardom. We listen in as they dream out loud of becoming household names in TV, modelling, acting, and mentally preparing themselves for a life in the spotlights.

The One Off: Armed Forces Careers Offices ‘Armed Forces Careers Offices Sheffield’

Agency: The One Off
Client: Armed Forces Careers Offices
Date: September 2016
Following our work for Army Recruitment and the new vision for their Careers Centres, we were approached by the Royal Navy and Royal Air Force to align how all three services communicate together.
We photographed 45 Armed Forces personnel from all three services across a five-day shoot and updated the Sheffield flagship site to carry a reconfigured set of graphic assets all now set in an aligned and consistent style. The new space was designed with the same vision as the Army specific sites; providing key information for potential candidates in a clear and engaging way alongside inspirational and relatable imagery. The scheme is now being rolled out across the rest of the AFCO sites nationwide.

Design Futura: Nike ‘Unlimited Fight’

Agency: Design Futura
Client: Nike
Date: September 2016
Arcade Content’s Kyle Lewis directed Unlimited Fight, Nike’s tribute to South Africa’s 2016 Olympic Gold medallist, Caster Semenya.
The piece salutes Caster’s will to succeed even as her legitimacy as a female athlete has been continually contested on the grounds of society’s deep-seated fear of that which is different. Caster’s courage and determination is celebrated through a montage of powerful portraits of teenage girls staring into camera while a voiceover delivers a message about society’s tendency to hold female athletes back instead of allowing them to flourish.
Caster went on to win her race, taking a gold medal home to her country, while the film’s powerful message sparked a torrent of pride and enthusiasm across both South African and international social media platforms, with Caster herself being proud enough to share it on her social media.
