The Campaign

Keeping the rebranding in the back of our minds, we created recognizable branding that came straight from brand roots - electricity. Using circuitry diagrams, a new visual narrative was born. As it is purely about the brand values we kept the RWE identity, but at the same time we introduced the illustrations, look & feel closer to Innogy branding.

Creative Execution

To support the summer activations and easily create content we've created font and set of illustrations made of electricity. We also decided to make new neons for Warsaw (as they're part of its history, and almost all of old neons were destroyed during the WWII), highlighting Warsaw Mermaid (as an icon of Vistula River) and the Palace of Culture and Science - as the most recognizable building of Warsaw. Simplicity of the designs allowed us to transform electric visuals into real, lighting pieces of art. They can now be found in Warsaw Neon Museum, which is sponsored by RWE / Innogy and are exhibited nationwide.

Indication of how successful the outcome was in the market

Knowing that the branding is time-limited we created something eye-cathing that smoothed the transition between the brands. Our neons we're widely shared around social media, and on stayed as a part of city history.

RWE was contributing to cities and its customers so it was important to create something more cultural rather than associated with the brand before RWE turned into Innogy. As our target group was very wide (from teenagers to elderly people) we needed to stay neutral in our approach.

Dreamy and slightly surreal, Ice Skaters for Ikea from CZAR Brussels

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.

The gin, the city, the song and the search for the special colour of Seville

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.
