This year we are launching our very own bursary, raising money through creativity for a cause that we feel passionate about. And this year we are tackling the issue of education.
As you might be aware, further education for the creative industries is very expensive and with your help we want to send a student through creative school, every year. We will work closely with the student throughout the year to nurture and enhance their creative talent.
Hotels.com is the obvious choice for booking hotels and in the US they have been using their biggest fan, Captain Obvious, as an obvious-speaking brand advocate. We took Captain Obvious across the pond and introduced him to the awesome people of Great Britain. It’s actually not a pond, it’s an ocean.

“People don’t want to watch ads online, so they don’t… they skip them”
– Captain Obvious
Ignoring a commercial online has never been easier. All the viewer has to do is press ‘skip ad’. But Hotels.com wanted to make sure people weren’t going to skip Captain Obvious’ big UK introduction, so with the help of Channel 4 we got Captain Obvious to skip the ad instead… literally… using a jump-rope.
In the first week, the ‘Skip Ad’ collected more than 400 thousand impressions on the Channel 4 video-on-demand channel and reached an engagement rate of 34%. Overall ‘Skip Ad’ was skipped over 200k times.

Turkish Airlines were sponsoring the new Batman Versus Superman film and wanted to come up with a campaign that made sense of the sponsorship rather than being just a shallow fame driving spend
Turkish Airlines fly to more countries that any other airline
We are the airline that flies to more countries than any other airline, we are the airline that looks to bridge worlds and create connections other airlines don't and we've made a commitment to increase our brand presence and connectivity to and from the USA. It would therefore make complete strategic and creative sense that we're the airline opening new routes to Gotham and Metropolis. It anchored the sponsorship in the travel world in a unique and innovative way, giving Turkish Airlines a very clear and clever role to be part of the conversation of the film and importantly seamlessly aligns the film franchise to us as a brand.
The two ads were launched in the pre show to the 2016 Super Bowl, generating huge amounts of buzz and conversation. The full 360 elements of the campaign were designed to ensure we also Widen Your World on Gotham and Metropolis with a Time Out Guide for each and a competition to win a flight to either Gotham or Metropolis (for the premier). The campaign resulted in 125 million earned media impressions. Over 30 million YouTube views for the ads. Over 25,000 would-be passengers for the inaugural flight. And over 700 news placements, including Mashable, ABC News, Empire, Yahoo News, Vanity Fair, Hollywood Reporter, The Independent, the Daily Mail, Variety and Rolling Stone – who ranked the ads No1 movie commercials in the SuperBowl, a great result both for Turkish Airlines and Warner Bros.
Trump is gaining a popular following in the US thanks to choice soundbites that play on peoples' fears - and capture attention. For many it feels almost impossible to challenge Trump supporters by countering with facts, because once the heart has been won, the mind often doesn’t get to have a say.
Turn Trump's quotes into expressions of love, instead of hate, and by doing so highlight just how absurd some of the things he says can be.

WHAT IS CREATIVITY?
Let’s start thinking about creativity in its broadest sense.
Let’s stop thinking about creative as a product or a department.
We begin by identifying the ‘real’ problem and then applying creativity to solve it.
Get a bunch of diverse minds to think upstream and see what happens.
Creativity is flexible, collaborative
It is cool, exciting and powerful.
It is the solution that will transform business fortunes.
And it’s the most fun you can have with your clothes on.
Not wanting to get all over dramatic,
but creativity is the cure.

We don't think of ourselves as an advertising agency, we are a creative agency. They might sound like the same thing, but there is a distinct difference. There are plenty of agencies all over the place that do ads, and find joy in just doing what has always been done, but that's not us. We think clients and staff deserve more ambition and a better, more engaging end result.
We aim to create culture not advertising.

Grow an established brand in an established category.
The core truth of the product is the tender chocolate melting even the hardest of souls.
"Dare to be tender". A truly tender experience in a toxic world.
Consistent double digit growth over
the four years the work ran.
One of the things you will notice about our logo is the ‘elephant.’
It originates from the states way back in the late 1800’s.
The story goes, when they brought
the circus to town, instead of paying for
expensive advertising, they would
literally walk one of the elephants
through town to create buzz
Of course everyone went crazy.
It is so relevant to the way brands must think in this modern era of social impact.
It’s a simple technique that inspires us with all of our clients: we start by finding a brand truth, and then we turn that brand truth into action and literally walk an elephant through town.
