 Electoral Commission 

Brief: Electoral Commission were looking for an engaging social campaign to encourage more young people to register to vote ahead of the General Election in May 2015.

    It's a Match!We found that our audience spent around 2 hours a day (on average) on online connection apps like Tinder, ignoring our “traditional” comms to focus on their social lives.

It allowed us to raise awareness of one of the key issues in organ donation, how hard it is to find an organ “match” for those in need on the waiting list, whilst normalising the topic via the popular cultural platform. The partnership between the NHS and Tinder has achieved global reach with over 24 million impressions on social media and during the two weeks of the partnership, the direct weblink accounted for 16% of all click-throughs to the organ donation website.
