The Campaign

We use the world’s food No. 1 and make a small change: With the label Penny Little Counts, instead of selling one kilogram of rice, we sell for example 55,027 grains of rice.

Creative Execution

The grains of rice are counted mechanically and the amount of rice grains is individually stamped in big letters onto the packaging, saying: waste none. Therefore, we force the customers automatically to change perspective without changing anything by themselves. Additionally, we add the true value of every single grain by communicating what big effort of resources lays inside: days of growth, water, sunshine, transport, farmworkers craft. Now, would you like to waste any of this?

Indication of how successful the outcome was in the market

Due to having more than 2.200 stores in Germany and an average number of 2 million clients per day, PENNY reached a broad target group with Little Counts. Clients reacted very positive towards this simple but clever measure PENNY used, in order to point out the high value of a basic food like rice. The 5000 packages we produced were sold within one day. Also, plenty of people got engaged on our website, which provided them with further information about the origination process and values of a grain of rice. So basically, all we did was altering the measuring unit. But it changed the way consumers look at a product. It made them realize how precious a single piece of food is. Because every grain matters.

In the middle of everyday life the customers change their perspective without making a change themselves: Online, on the point of sale and the packaging, they learn about food waste and the effort that is put into every single grain of rice. Every glimpse counts.

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. 

How do you make an idea work when your entire media budget is pulled, a week before launch?

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.
