: 'How Do You Like Your Greg in the Morning?'

Date: September 2020
To celebrate the return of Radio 1 Breakfast with Greg James to a regular broadcast schedule, BBC Creative has launched a new film showing listeners tuning in, in weird and wonderful ways.
The move marks the end of the temporary schedule put in place during the height of the coronavirus crisis.
The film shows a montage of listeners telling the audience how they get their Greg James fix: one person likes to wake-up at 7am on the dot for it, another takes the longer route to work to make sure she listens to the show and a father tunes in whilst teaching his step-daughter to drive.
The final clip humorously shows a girl preferring to listen to Greg rather than consoling a tearful friend, and ends with Greg sitting in a café and the words ‘how do you like your Greg in the morning?’

: 'Eat Like a Chef'

Date: September 2020
In Sweetgreen’s latest step towards creating a more personalized dining experience, it's launching Collections, a new expansive list of dishes curated to meet customer’s specific needs and wants, available exclusively online and via its app. 
Most exciting is the 'Eat Like a Chef' collection, which gives an under-the-hood look at what notable culinary minds order when they go to Sweetgreen, including Nancy Silverton (Mozza, LA), Danny Bowein (Mission Chinese, NYC), Kwame Onwuachi (Kith and Kin, DC), and Michael Solomonov (Zahav, Philly), among others. 
The launch of Collections and the accompanying campaign comes after the company conducted research that revealed guests like to both order similar dishes to what they’ve had before, and are interested in finding new ways to incorporate seasonal ingredients into their Sweetgreen orders. By introducing Collections, Sweetgreen aims to help their guests explore their menu by giving them tailored suggestions based on their preferences.

: 'Experts vs The Internet'

Date: September 2020
The United Nations’ (UN) initiative Verified is collaborating with The Wild to launch the social campaign ‘Experts vs The Internet’, aimed at tackling the spread of misinformation around coronavirus.
The Verified campaign's mission is to create content that cuts through the noise to deliver life-saving information, fact-based advice and stories from the best of humanity. By promoting and sharing Verified content, everyday people can play a crucial role in spreading reliable information that counters misinformation.
The ‘Experts vs The Internet’ campaign will contain three episodes produced by The Wild, and will feature leading experts as they address topics surrounding COVID-19 that are prone to misinformation. They deliver the facts, separating truth from conjecture. Through the series, the UN hopes to shift audience behaviour, encouraging people to seek reputable sources, to take care before they share information with others and urging them to consider the negative impact of sharing incorrect information.

: 'Keep On Moving'

Date: September 2020
A unique take on a classic road movie theme - the campaign film features a man at a grand piano ‘driving’ through dramatic English countryside playing and singing Joe Jackson’s iconic 80’s hit ‘Steppin’ Out’. He then briefly stops at a Jet forecourt to refuel before hitting the road again to resume his musical journey accompanied by the line: ‘Don’t let filling up slow you down’.
Commenting on the campaign Ben Stump, creative director, Isobel said, "Since 1954 Jet has been on the side of the driver, aiming to get you in and out quickly. They understand that whatever you drive, or wherever you’re going, you just want to ‘Keep On Moving’. Through one man’s love of the open road (and a good old sing-song), this commercial is a beautiful celebration of that.”
The ‘Keep on Moving’ campaign is the latest activity in an ongoing brand refresh for Jet - supplied in the UK by the major wholesale and fuel provider Phillips 66 Limited – and is designed to increase visibility and consideration amongst new and existing customers.
“In fine-tuning the JET brand our aim is to improve the experience for our customers and to give the drivers who visit our forecourts everything they need and want to continue their journeys quickly and safely.” says Mary Wolf, managing director, UK marketing, Phillips 66 Limited “It is a simple, straightforward ‘driver-first’ ethos that is perfectly captured in this new campaign.”
The TV ad aired from 1 September, to be shown throughout the month across the Midlands and the North of England.  Other elements of the Keep on Moving campaign will be rolled out nationally on social media throughout the month.

As the Art Institute’s new exhibition “Monet and Chicago” welcomes the reopening of art museums in Chicago, HoneyWired created a special Snapchat Lens that puts Chicagoans (or at least their reflections) inside a Monet painting.

: 'Set the Juice Loose '

Date: September 2020
From Dr Who to dancing Scotsmen, and from the Beatles to Basil Brush, Wine Gums and Jelly Babies have earned their fair share of famous fans and famous advertising over the last century. So, when tasked with breathing new life into one of the nation’s favourite brands, creative agency VCCP chose to look to the juicy history of Maynards Bassetts for inspiration.
In an increasingly competitive candy category, the task for Maynards Bassetts was to reassert the brand as a leader, and remind the nation of the brand’s heritage of bringing high quality, delicious sweets to market for over one hundred years.
What better way to do this than bringing back one of the catchiest lines in British advertising? From the 7 September, across outdoor and digital, Maynards Bassetts will be asking the nation to ‘Set the Juice Loose’ once more.
Maynards Bassetts will be showcasing the barely containable, mouth-wateringly juicy qualities of some of its most popular sweets across a dozen creative executions.

: '#EveryoneNeedsNature'

Date: September 2020
The National Trust has launched #EveryoneNeedsNature – an appeal to raise awareness of how connection to nature enriches lives and how vital it is to preserve and protect nature and wildlife, and to raise funds for nature conservation.
Devised by creative agency Wieden+Kennedy London, with media planned and bought by Medialab, the campaign will appear on ITV, Channel 4 and Sky, on billboards around the country, and in national newspapers and magazines, over a six week period. 
The campaign will focus on nature and wellbeing and on the universal need for nature.  It follows the bold ambitions set out by the Trust to mark its 125th anniversary in January including planting 20 million trees and creating green corridors for nature and signals the start of more sustained fundraising appeals by the conservation charity.  It will seek donations from the public – both existing supporters and new ones who have an increased interest in nature following lockdown.  
Donations will be used for a variety of nature conservation work programmes; £5 will buy and plant a tree, £10 will help maintain coastal footpaths and £15 will help with wildflower meadow creation.

: 'The Blitz'

Date: September 2020
To mark 80 years since the start of The Blitz, Ancestry, the global leader in family history, has commissioned the creation of a new collection of art depicting life during The Blitz and World War II.
The 80 pieces of art, available to view on, are based on real-life stories discovered in wartime records available on Ancestry and aim to bring to life the extraordinary ‘everyday’ lives and efforts of people all over the country and the British spirit that shone through whilst they lived and served on the home front.
The campaign, proposed by Ancestry’s UK PR agency, Red Consultancy, was inspired by the War Artists Advisory Committee (WAAC) which was established at the outbreak of World War II by the UK Government’s Ministry of Information. Its aim was to compile a comprehensive artistic record of Britain throughout the war and by the end of World War II, included 5,570 pieces. The original records are held at The National Archives, in Kew.
