The CampaignAt IKEA, a bed can be a couch. The idea was to show the versatility of IKEA with simple yet visually striking forms that read the name of two different products from two different angles. They are the same – but they are two. One product. Two ways of using it.
Creative ExecutionFor IKEA products and communication, naturalness is key. Although for the idea "Versatile Words" we pushed the boundaries regarding color. The design of the letters is clean so the viewer can focus on discovering the two different words and forms of use of the product. And in oder to create another dimension and push the limits of perspective, 3D modelling was used.
Indication of how successful the outcome was in the marketThe "Versatile Words" were received very well. And showed once again that IKEA goes creative ways in promoting their creative products.
The friendly brand from Sweden is known for modern, clever and customer orientated communication. So the three motifs fit perfectly to IKEAs approach. The target audience of IKEA ranges from 1-99 so these motifs were perfectin their playfulness and progressive choice of color.
Ice Skaters shows the dreamy and slightly surreal spectacle of a middle aged couple spinning and gliding on the polished wood floors of an elegant, high-ceilinged apartment in their socks. With the tagline 'Bring life into your living room' it is a beautifully crafted advert creating a warm, nostalgic mood for the brand, Ikea. It won Bronze at Eurobest in 2018 for production company CZAR Brussels. Director, Joe Vanhoutteghem and producer, Lander Engels talk to Eurobest about the experience of creating the work.
The team at Marvelous Moscow have the answer. CCO, Artem Sinyavskiy shares the story of how their work for Skylink, 'The 1 MB Campaign', went on to win Bronze at Eurobest in 2017, despite the media budget being pulled a week before the launch of the campaign.
PS21 Madrid, the creative transformation company set up by founder of creative agency dommo Agustín Vivancos, was in its first year when the team began work on Searching for the Special Colour of Seville. It was a piece of work that would not only go on to win the agency’s first major award, Bronze in Creative Data at Eurobest in 2018, but would also become part of Seville’s cultural heritage. We hear how the idea came to life from Strategy Director, Sergio Garcia and Executive Creative Director, Victor Blanco.
