  • Volvo - Commuter Hijack
    Volvo - Commuter HijackTo launch the Volvo V40 R-Design, we built a campaign to go beyond traditional advertising and counteract long held brand views. Using a partnership with Shortlist, we created a competition to challenge 5 nominated individuals to take a V40 and Danny on a trip to spend £5k in one work day. The hijacks were filmed and the best day, as voted by the internet, won a V40 R-Design. The resulting video content generated over 6 million views and drove increased awareness and consideration of the brand.
  • LG Ticket Hunter
    LG Ticket HunterTo promote LG's mobile phone range to 18-24 year olds, we created a socially led campaign using a Twitter based scavenger hunt for '1 Direction' tickets at the LG arena. One by one, secret locations around the UK were revealed on a map which zoomed in as the volume of campaign tweets increased. The campaign created the highest period of sales of LG mobile in 5 years and 50% of annual average brand social buzz in a week.
  • Wolf Blass - Winning Lineup
    Wolf Blass - Winning LineupTo tap into the spirit of Rugby during the Rugby World Cup, we created a campaign that positioned a non-sponsor brand at the heart of the sport on everyone's minds. The campaign used social media and pundit Will Greenwood to drive consumers to name the Greatest Winning Lineup of all time, while coordinated limited edition labels on bottle celebrated each Rugby position on shelf. It allowed Wolf Blass to capture the passion of sport and put it in the hands and minds of our drinkers

    Best Use of Media - LG & GraziaMedia Week Awards
    A campaign based around the launch of the 'L' series of phones from LG, which targeted Fashion conscious women in their early 20s. The campaign integrated the phone into video and content around Grazia's creation of their Fashion week issue. The results were content which helped to drive the credibility of the brand and the product within the target audience. I worked with the team providing strategic planning to build the shape of this campaign and the overall 'L' series launch.
