The Campaign

To respond positively to this real need for families, Renault in partnership with Chicco, the largest baby brand in all of Europe, developed "The Dream Cradle": a base, on which to place the cradle, that mimics the movement of the car enabling parents to lull the baby at home, without having to go out. The Dream Cradle is activated through an App that allows to adjust intensity, direction and slope.

Creative Execution

The inspiration came from a commercial posted on the Renault Argentina FB page where a couple was planning a cradle that replicated the movement of a car at home. After watching this, several parents enquired whether the cradle could be produced for real. That’s when Renault looked for a partner, specialized in baby products, to work on a product that could satisfy the desire of many parents. The Dream Cradle was revealed on 10 March 2017, during the Six Nations Press Conference in Rome, with Renault as the Italian Rugby Team Official Sponsor. Soon after the news spread to the web, magazines, newspapers and TV news. The content video was posted on YT and social media; a landing page was developed for info and preorder of the product: www.dreamcradle.it Three weeks later, during Milan Design Week, the Dream Cradle was shown in the Nhow Hotel alongside the Renault Range Test-Drive.

Renault with its customer promise ''Easy Life" wants to build not just ideas for a better life inside the car but also outside. Because Renault believes that cars are still able to make our life easier. Especially for a target that's particularly relevant for the brand: young families. Born from a consumer demand, the Dream Cradle is a product developed to improve families' life.

The campaign addresses young families with young children, a target that's particularly relevant for the brand globally. That’s why Renault looked for an insight that most of the families could identify with, no matter where they came from. This way it demonstrated how a brand’s promise can be turned into a brand experience to make families' life easier, globally.

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 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.
