  • adiClub x Sarah Essam Mural
    adiClub x Sarah Essam MuralFollowing a brief from adidas MENA to empower woman in sports in the local community, we looked at the roster of adidas female athletes in the region. Sarah Essam from Cairo, is the only female Arabic woman to have played in the Woman's Super League in England. For a region which, compared to Europe and NAM, struggles with woman getting enough support to pursue sporting success, she is a shining light. We partnered with local artist Aya Tarek, to create a mural at Sarah Essam's school to ins

Below I have outlined how we executed the experience all the way from the digital experience to the physical activation. IN APP RAFFLE My team and I delivered the sign up journey
  • adidas Confirmed: Key City x Golden Ticket activation
    adidas Confirmed: Key City x Golden Ticket activation The 'Why?': Our audience is generally frustrated when partaking in Confirmed app raffles and giveaways as they are used to losing. Therefore the majority will not interact with the campaign or even listen to what we have to say feeling it is a waste of time. To change this mindset, we proposed an activation where everyone wins. The 'What': Via the Confirmed app, adidas raffled off the chance to

  • adiClub King Abdullah Sports City Stadium
    adiClub King Abdullah Sports City Stadiumadidas MENA created an RFP to several agencies to activate Members Week for the first time in their region. Up against 4 other agencies we pitched and won the business with our plan of 5 separate activations taking place in Egypt, UAE, and Saudi Arabia. This activation concerns what we got up to in Saudi Arabia. The 'Why' From local team insights, we knew KSA was mad about football. And with the brand new King Abdullah Sports City stadium in Jeddah and the release of the new KSA adidas footba

    Our multi-platform (social, content, print, film) campaign for Inmarsat was created for a business unit within the organisation, Inmarsat Aviation, which offers inflight connectivity to commercial airlines. Faced with the challenge of airlines struggling to define their business cases to invest in inflight connectivity (IFC), Inmarsat Aviation needed to change the global conversation about IFC, demonstrating leadership by shifting industry perceptions about the product. We achieved this with the creation of a powerful research coalition that launched the game-changing research study, ‘Sky High Economics’ (SHE), which showed the scale of incremental revenue available to airlines through passenger connectivity. The study found that IFC has the potential to create $30bn of additional airline revenue by 2035, a figure that changed established thinking about the business case for IFC. The results were impressive: a social reach of 875,000, exceeding target engagement benchmarks, over 190 articles in global media, and 14 one-to-one customer engagements, leading to three new airline contract wins. “The winner fundamentally influenced the target market,” said the CMA judges, “creating a solution that could actually change the future of the aviation industry.” Starting as an Account Executive at the start of this campaign, I was able to prove my worth as working in a large team of planners, creative, OPR and social/content personnel – following the massive success of the campaign I believe my role in it was recognised by Ogilvy rewarding me with the promotion to Account Manager.
