: 'Understanding Changes Everything'

Date: January 2021
Babbel, the world’s top-grossing language learning app, has now launched a new global brand campaign for January, focussing on the transformational effects that come with knowing another language.
Highlighting the claim 'Understanding Changes Everything', two new TV Spots have been created to show how small interactions in other languages can have profound effects on a personal and professional level.
This adds to one of Babbel’s core brand messages: to inspire conversations that transform your world. The campaign has been developed based on research and market tests conducted via the research institute IPSOS, and it’s the first collaboration between Babbel and the award-winning Amsterdam-based production company Media Monks, together with creative director Charlotte Moore.

: 'Hope is Power'

Date: January 2021
A tactical print ad from Uncommon for The Guardian – a continuation of the brand message created last year, ‘Hope is Power,’ has run in the Guardian paper, ahead of Joe Biden's inauguration as US President.
The message reads amongst a striking yellow background accompanied by a shot of the new Vice President, Kamala Harris:
1920 An American woman can vote.
1952 An Asian American woman can vote.
1965 A Black American woman can vote.
2021 A Black, Asian American woman can win.
Hope is Power.
The Guardian.

: 'Today We Rise'

Date: January 2021
The world watched as Kamala Harris stood where no woman, and no Black or South Asian woman, has ever stood before in US history. It was a milestone moment for millions of Americans who have yearned to see faces that resemble their own at the highest levels of our democracy.
This new film released by Girl Up, the gender equality youth initiative of the United Nations Foundation, in partnership with Ogilvy and Refinery29, captures this history-making moment through the eyes of girls who watched as the daughter of Indian and Jamaican immigrants was sworn in as the 49th Vice President of the United States, becoming the highest-ranking female politician in American history.
‘Today We Rise’ illustrates the immeasurable impact that the images of Vice President Harris taking her oath of office, administered by Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor—the first Latina to serve on the nation’s highest court—will have on generations to come.
‘Today We Rise’ was filmed and produced by a volunteer network of photographers and cinematographers during the inauguration in over 30 households across the country. It was edited immediately after the inauguration ceremony, going live within hours of the event.

: 'Look Them In The Eyes'

Date: January 2021
The UK Government has launched another campaign that acts as a reminder to the public of the extreme pressures faced by frontline workers during the pandemic and pleads with the nation to stay at home. With a shift in tone, the new campaign features raw footage and honest testimonials of patients who have Covid-19 and staff who are working around the clock to look after them at Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital.
The advert challenges the public to question their actions and it ends by asking “Look them in the eyes and tell them you are doing all you can to stop the spread of Covid-19”?
It will run across radio, OOH, digital, print and social with poignant still imagery of other key workers, including bus drivers, pharmacists and shop assistants, who are all working on the frontline.

: 'We're Here'

Date: January 2021
Suicide prevention charity Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM) has launched a hard-hitting OOH campaign in partnership with JCDecaux UK. At a time when the nation's mental health is under the spotlight, and people are not sure who to turn to for help, the ‘We’re Here’ campaign aims to generate greater visibility of the charities life-saving services. 
The last 12 months have been like no other.  With many of us experiencing struggles with our mental health, from social isolation, unemployment and money worries, through to domestic abuse, grief and bereavement. All of which have meant CALM’s helpline is needed now, more than ever.
Running across JCDecaux UK’s digital and billboard sites across the UK, the OOH campaign uses wordplay treatment to normalise CALM’s helpline service for people who might be scared of reaching out, or who don’t know where to turn when things get tough.

: 'Best of Both'

Date: January 2021
Amid many consumer challenges over Free School Meals, Hovis' 'Best of Both' has committed to increasing its support for families living in food poverty by donating an additional 250,000 loaves. This is enough bread to make an additional 2.5 million sandwiches in 2021 on top of the annual donation of 250,000 loaves from the brand.
The bread is being donated in partnership with the charity FareShare, the UK’s longest running food redistribution charity, which, along with Hovis, also supports the Marcus Rashford Child Food Poverty Taskforce. In 2020, Hovis donated 250,000 loaves from across their range – providing enough slices for 2.5m sandwiches to those families living in food poverty.
Not only has Hovis committed to increasing its bread donations to create 2.5 million additional sandwiches in 2021, but it has also promised that its donations will be of Best of Both, one of its longest standing product ranges that has just re-launched with a new recipe. The new Best of Both is rich in Vitamin D which helps to support the immune system.
