Birra Moretti
Birra Moretti

The Home of Life's Simple Pleasures

One of the most heart-warming images to emerge at the start of the pandemic came from Italy, where people began to sing to each other from their balconies. Our global campaign for Birra Moretti portrays the ingenious ways the residents of a Tuscan town manage to entertain each other, share food and enjoy a beer together, amidst the restrictions. The fact the film was shot during lockdown brought an authentic twist to the production, with director Martin Aamund focusing on the simple pleasures enjoyed at the heart of Italian life.

Full of The Good Stuff

Batchelors Baked Beans, the alliterative brand everyone in Ireland loves, has been made at the original factory in Cabra, Dublin since 1935. Shot in the area around the factory, the film follows two boys’ playful game of one-upmanship on their journey home from school, illustrating that both Batchelors and the Cabra community are ‘Full of the Good Stuff’.

If It’s Going On, It’s Going Online

Famous for connecting its readers with fun, feisty, fearless stories, The Sunday World asked us to demonstrate how they apply the same kind of reporting - continuously - on SundayWorld.com. Our answer was to compose the world’s longest headline, connecting real, diverse stories found on the site itself - all delivered by Dublin rapper Mango.

Creating Our Future

A great example of how Havas Village works its collaborative magic to create highly successful results. The Creating Our Future initiative asked the country to share ideas as to how researchers could improve our lives into the future. Working with our Village partners at Havas Media, Gate One and Cicero, the campaign idea started on a sticky note - and literally grew into thousands of them, coining the phrase ‘Ireland’s biggest brainstorm’. And it worked - people all over the country got busy thinking, from a trawler in Killybegs to the International Spacestation in orbit, beating our submission target by over 80%.

5 Minute Challenge

The last thing you’d expect a shower company to do is ask their loyal customers to use them less. Yet that’s precisely what we and our client Triton wanted from a campaign helping to reduce water consumption in Ireland. The Triton 5 Minute Challenge is an important message delivered without an ounce of preachiness, leaving everyone feeling squeaky-clean.

The Pirate Smuggler

When Valeo asked us to help launch a new category of flour, it felt like winning the Bake Off, such is the love of the Odlums brand in Ireland. Odlums Super Flour is enriched with Vitamin D, Calcium and Folic Acid (making it very super indeed) and the campaign required this information to be communicated clearly, yet with a warmth of tone fitting for the brand. The resulting film ‘The Pirate Smuggler’ has smuggled goodness into every house in ireland.

Text About It

The brief that demanded we make the work matter more than ever, 50808 is a mental health support service aimed at a younger age group who may be more comfortable with texting than speaking. The ubiquity of emojis in texts was the perfect starting point, the campaign flipping their normally light-hearted use to a more thought-provoking space, creating an immediate 560% increase in traffic.

Brand Identity

Q. How do you balance the seriousness of mental health with a sense of optimism? A. Our rebranding project for mental health website SpunOut.ie. The icon characters depict various emotions site users might feel, while the colours maintain the required optimism. The characters are also used across social channels, providing a consistent and very recognisable look and feel for the brand.

Myth Busters

Did you know about 40,000 people in Ireland have epilepsy? Do you know what a seizure looks like? Do you know what to do if you were to see one? Did you know there were as many myths as types of seizure? For International Epilepsy Day 2020, our goal was to challenge what people knew about epilepsy and combat the myriad of myths surrounding seizures. To do this, we worked with volunteers with epilepsy who helped us to tell their story - confronting what people thought they knew about epilepsy. We exceeded our target for the campaign, reaching over 1.5m people in just one week.
