CRAFT HAS NEVER BEEN SO GOOD

IDEAS HAVE NEVER BEEN SO IMPORTANT

RISKTHE IDEA

Our approach towards communications is that we dont really talk about ourselves too much. Rather, we focus on what we do the events we create and produce and the athletes we support versus who we are. With this guiding principal, we do not submit for awards very often.

Patrice RaddenDirector of Corporate CommunicationsRed Bull

Before we start, its worth noting that Cannes could have been very different this year if Red Bull had entered. Stratos was an idea with great risk and a big payoff.

DUMB WAYS TO DIE

RISK THE IDEA

DUMB WAYS TO DIEBefore Dumb Ways to Die became the most awarded campaign in advertising history (a record breaking 5 grand prix, 18 gold, 3 silver and 2 bronze) it would not have been an easy sell to the client. Hats off to McCann Melbourne for pitching the idea that a very serious problem could be solved through a musical video with cute animated characters dancing and singing about dumb ways to die. And equally, hats off to the client for taking on the risk associated with this approach.

THE BEAUTY INSIDEBeauty Inside is perhaps the most perfect idea Ive ever come across. When judging this year, we saw a lot of great advertising that was not inherently and absolutely linked back to a brand. You could change car brands or sports shoe brands and the campaign still worked because it was category specific and not specific to the brand. Beauty Inside stands out because the idea is absolutelyperfect for Intel and could not be be owned by anyone else. Its supported by the most amazing craft and incredibly engaging storytelling.

RISK THE IDEA

OREO DAILY TWISTOreo highlights a different kind of risk. In order to deliver breakthrough communication they changed the client/agency model so that they could deliver aperfectly executed real time and reactive campaign over 100 days. Whats great is that real time doesnt mean quick and dirty. The craft is flawless.

ADS WITH A PURPOSEIt seemed that there was a kick back on gadgets and high tech and some of the most interesting ideas were beautifully crafted low tech solutions. I love IBMs Ads with a purpose which picked up the Grand Prix in outdoor.

Its great to see a hi-tech company not afraid to use low-tech means to get people talking about a very hi-tech solution (smart cities).

SMART COMMUNICATIONShttp://seeourentry.com/txtbks/http://youtu.be/Fmfm0sTq9Nc

TXTBKSThe mobile grand prix didnt go to a whizzy new smart phone app. Instead, it went to an idea that transformed analogue phones into e-readers and old SIM cards into a new type of text book for school kids in the Philippines.

How often does a Telecoms company leverage old analogue technology?

RISK IDEASWITH LOW-TECH INNOVATION

COKEOGILVY & MATHERPARIShttp://youtu.be/72fRuE8vmo0

SHAREABLE CAN

RISK IDEASWITH LOW-TECH INNOVATION

Coke has been leading the way with interactive kiosks, mobile apps and other digital experiences that bring open happiness to life. This year they picked up a Gold Lion in Design for the sharing can. A low-tech but effective idea that innovates at the product level and demonstrates open happiness in delightful way.

Coke risked changing their product.

QANTAShttp://youtu.be/kPvIYHxJiyk

STORIES FOR EVERY JOURNEYQantas treats its most privileged frequent flyers with a special series of books purpose designed for the flight times of key Qantas routes.

Qantas took on a risk on books having high value for busy, tech-addicted clients.

RISK IDEASWITH LOW-TECH INNOVATION

URA.RU CITY WEBSITEhttp://youtu.be/48WoNWYUy7g

MAKE THE POLITICIANS WORKThis idea is very simple, but very effective. It really shows the importance of context. Potholes in Russia were hijacked and turned into chalk portraits of Russian Politicians. Beside each portrait there was a quote or failed promise from that particular politician concerning the state of the road. Politicians were quick to repair their image and reputation, and so accordingly also fix the road.

Its risky to play with the public image of political figures in Russia.

PUBLICIS GROUPEhttp://vimeo.com/55443057

HUMAN YOUTUBE PLAYERMaurice Levy hijacked the YouTube player functionality to produce a very human (and low-tech) experience. The speech was recorded over 30 times so that the Publicis Groupe CEO could personally interpret each Youtube player command on the fly.

The risk was to be fired if it flopped.

ADIDAS WINDOW SHOPPINGDigital is going retail and transforming and connecting the commerce experience across channels. Adidas does this well and shows the potential of connecting commerce, mobile and retail through a rich brand experience with digital at the core.

THE ANT RALLYIt may seem strange to include Ant Rally in this section. Ive done so because about 18 months ago I heard about a company that had some technology that meant you could write on a leaf. Ant Rally brings a powerful and engaging creative idea to partner this technology.

The risk for this idea was in the production (its hard to control ants).

ALB http://youtu.be/j83x-zSUf48

GOLDEN CHAINSWeve already different examples of popup windows in various chrome experiments. What makes this interactive video press worthy is the storytelling behind the video clip. The story of artist trying to sell all of his possessions in order to finance his album.

The risk was that perhaps nobody would buy the items for sale.

CLOUDS OVER CUBA

RISK IDEASTHAT TELL STORIES

GOLD

Clouds Over Cuba shows us what Cyber can do at its best. Its industry changing and has redefined the potential of digital storytelling.

Apart from taking a risk on the production in order to innovate a new type of storytelling they also risked mixing fiction and history to make the story more compelling.

RISK IDEASTHAT TELL STORIES

I wish there were more product websites like this. Geox uses everything digital has to offer to transport us and make us want to buy their shoes. The craft is flawless.

Geox took a risk on being able deliver against the idea. A story about shoes in the rain could have been extremely boring, but they came through with an incredibly compelling experience

SOUTHERN COMFORThttp://youtu.be/FP3x5E_z-_0

WHATEVERS COMFORTABLESouthern Comfort shows us how to tell a great story without any words. This was one of our favourite films at the festival this year.

What we like is that Southern Comfort had the guts to bet everything on the mood and on the execution.

PRUDENTIALhttp://youtu.be/quNGs1FWLOo

PRUDENTIAL CHALLENGE LABFollowing on from the success of DAY ONE last year, Prudential goes one step further in helping people prepre for retirement.

Prudential is taking a risk on being able to change behaviour and fix the problem - rather than just creating an engaging message around the problem. Any experiement is a risk because you cant guarantee results.

SAMSUNG LIFE INSURANCEhttp://youtu.be/LYMWPSKpRpE

BRIDGE OF LIFESamsung equipped Mapo bridge (notorious for the highest suicide rate) with sensors and lights that trigger messages of hope and reassurance as someone walks close to the rails in an attempt to change behaviour and lower the rate of suicide.

Its risky for a Life Insurance company to tackle suicide in this manner.

MY BLOOD IS RED AND BLACK Its already risky to tamper with a football uniform, let alone to do so as part of a campaign. Football Club Vitoria offered up their most precious media space (their football jersey) in an attempt to change behaviour and drive fans to donating blood.

THE TRUTHBodyform is a great example of brands tapping into one individual consumer and engaging a conversation that can be broadcast to the wider online community. This new approach to open discussion requires a degree of risk because brands must open up and be ready for the difficult conversations.

#FINDGREATNESSNike picked up a Titanium Lion for their brand campaign during the Olypics. By not being an official sponsor they risked fan disappointment and visibility. The risk paid off as they outperformed official Olympic sponsors +200%.

McDONALDShttp://www.lookwhatwemade.ca/yourquestionswebsite1/

OUR FOOD, YOUR QUESTIONSBrands used to use mass media to push out one standard message to a mass audience. We now see brands engaging in conversation with one individual and publishing that open discussion to a mass audience online and offline. McDonalds shows that this can go beyond a campaign mindset - to become a new brand behaviour.

They risked an attacking defense. They opened up and were ready and able to answer ANY question from consumers.

RISKTHE IDEA

This year weve seen how ideas and advertising can solve problems. And some very serious problems indeed (suicide, blood donation, organ

donation and rail safety). But weve also seen how ideas and advertising solve equally serious brand problems (brand perception, loyalty and sales).

It seems befitting to end with Bill Bernbachs quote :Safe ideas can kill you
