The CampaignWe crafted a spirit out of the Ehinger spirit – a gin that contains original parts from the old machines. We bottled it together with the machine parts and labelled each bottle with the mind-boggling story of the part’s origin. According to Uwe Ehinger’s favourite models, Harley Davidson Panhead, Flathead, and Knucklehead, we made three varieties (classes), containing iconic original parts of these very machines. That way, fans could finally actually taste the spirit of three different vintage Harley Davidson motorbikes and let it become a part of them.
Creative ExecutionEvery element of our hand-made packaging consists of colours and materials that were already used in the 30s and 40s – a meticulous rendition of the packaging technology of the era in which the contained bike parts have originally been crafted. The Bottle: Custom-made clear glass with bottom-side counterbore by Karl Schmid glassworks; original vintage machine part welded on a stainless-steel socket by Wolfrik Fischer studio Paper and cardboard: Maren Thomsen, ‚Les Naturals’, sand, anthracite and alabaster white Finish: Crucible printing press hot foil stamping Inks: Red: Kurz Luxor 307 (matches Pantone 8863) Gold: Kurz Luxor 381 (matches Pantone 871) Silver: Kurz Alufin Spezial (matches Pantone 877) Black: Tecnofoil 499
Indication of how successful the outcome was in the marketSince the making of the bottles is a highly expensive and elaborate process, we have crafted a first batch of 100 bottles per class. 300 bottles that were offered in the EK Shop and online – and were out-of-stock within a few days.
Ehinger Kraftrad is a relatively small brand, but with a big reputation in the scene. The machines cost a fortune, therefore the customer potential draws from predominantly male, wealthy, highly-interested, well-informed, hardcore fans. Ehinger Kraftrad is renowned for sweating every detail painstakingly. Thus, it was important to craft the packaging in an accordingly authentic and meticulous fashion. To reach the relevant target group, we focused on the according globally published special-interest magazines and social media to create buzz and create interest within the target audience. Before long, the message literally spread worldwide, and so, numerous inquiries came in from all over the world.
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.
