: 'Equality Spell Check'

Date: March 2020
When it comes to equality in the workplace, the MENA region lags far behind the rest of the world, losing an estimated $575bn per year due to the social barriers that women face at work. It’s an issue Lenovo is deeply committed to, so the brand worked with Wunderman Dubai to create an awareness campaign to highlight the issue as an initiative for International Women’s Day.
It was from that realization that Wunderman conceived the Equality Spell Check, using Microsoft Word - a program people use every day at work - as a medium to deliver their message and teach about gender equality in the workplace in an innovative way.
The Wunderman team combined data and hard-hitting facts to develop a plug-in for MS Word which highlighted seemingly positive everyday workplace words as incorrect. When clicked on, the alternative definition of these words for women was revealed through hard-hitting facts about gender inequality in the workplace
By modifying the most used program in the world, Lenovo sought to modify people’s behavior and open the conversation about gender equality in the workplace. Now, many other companies in the region are joining this cause and installing Equality Spell Check in their offices.

: 'Insurance for the Rest of Us'

Date: March 2020
Joan Creative is expanding SafeAuto’s 'Insurance for the Rest of Us' campaign, launched earlier this year, by doing just what the slogan promises: spreading the word about how the often overlooked everyday consumer can benefit from SafeAuto’s state minimum auto insurance.
The campaign, which started with major broadcast buys in January, now features new content across multiple channels, designed to reach a diverse group of consumers. From billboards enticing consumers to “Sign up for a month or forever,” to a 30 second video spot called “open relationships,” the new assets comically tap into consumers’ desire for flexibility and build upon the initial broadcast campaign.
In a send-up of the earnest talking head format, used by insurance and financial brands, SafeAuto’s campaign features a truly honest take, which often results in uncomfortable moments and 'TMI.' For example, in one of the new video spots, a young woman says she enjoys “experiencing new things, being spontaneous, going against the grain…[and]…open relationships” – to the sudden and visible shock of her partner accompanying her. “It’s a good thing SafeAuto understands my insurance needs are month-to-month so I can come and go as I please,” she says, as the heartfelt soaring strings, that typically accompany customer testimonials in this segment, play in the background.
In another video spot, called 'Odd Jobs,' an odd job enthusiast and former “balloon artist” and “dog masseuse” explains how SafeAuto’s low down payment offering supports consumers with unique working situations that may not know where their next payment is coming from. 
Joan’s radio ads developed for SafeAuto play off of consumers’ enthusiasm for flexible auto insurance. In one spot – 'New Business Idea' – two overzealous men try to start a business just like SafeAuto only seconds after hearing how the company is disrupting the category. In another spot, a couple contemplates naming their child “SafeAuto.”
February’s new content also includes video spots in Spanish to better reach Hispanic audiences. One new video spot, entitled 'Queen of Coupons,' featuring an affectionate Spanish-speaking Hispanic couple, the wife says she plans to use her savings for her husband's cosmetic needs.
The newly launched OOH and digital assets complete Joan’s “Insurance for the Rest of Us” campaign launch as SafeAuto’s recently announced agency-of-record, helping to recruit even more new members into the SafeAuto tribe.

: 'Night Workers'

Date: March 2020
The people who work the night shift often go unnoticed, toiling as road maintenance workers, hospital staff, supermarket stockers and other often thankless jobs. McDonald’s is shining a light on those unsung workers with a spot that appreciates their sometimes thankless efforts.
McDonald's and Leo Burnett London teamed up on ‘Night Workers’, celebrating the millions of people working throughout the night in the UK and Ireland that most of us never see, but are appreciated because of their hard work.
The spot starts with an alarm going off at 11pm as an invisible human is seen getting up and ready for the day. In each scene, the jobs that night workers do – including looking after patients in hospitals, maintaining roads, re-stocking supermarkets and driving cabs – are highlighted but the workers themselves are invisible.
As the spot reaches its end, a road crew walks through a McDonald’s doorway for a break and suddenly becomes visible in their safety gear. The spot emphasizes that the doors of McDonald’s are always open, ready to welcome them.

: 'High & Low'

Date: March 2020
Cadbury is countering the commercialization of Easter with a timely reminder that the seasonal holiday is an opportunity to show our generosity and not just an excuse for gratuitous gluttony.
‘Show you care, hide it’ spices up the act of giving by encouraging the nation to hide their chocolate treat in an out of the way sweet spot rather than simply hand it over in person, rekindling some of the fun and excitement of search and discovery.
Created by VCCP the 40-second egg hunt shows a grandfather depositing purple eggs around his flat ahead of a visit from his grandchildren, who promptly scatter around the house to track down the concealed treats.
