The Campaign

The idea became The Fire Game, a digital fire drill for mobile and tablet designed for those who need to practice what to do in the event of a fire more than anyone else: families with small children.

Creative Execution

The campaign was rolled out two weeks ahead of Fire Safety Week with several films that were shown on TV and online, web advertising, blog partnerships with bloggers, a comprehensive CRM run and ‘Win the crab badge’ live at Rådhusplassen during a fire station open house. The message was simple: «Play yourself safer from fire at»

- 250,000 unique users to date (the number of people who have played is at least double this if you consider that the game is intended for the whole family) - Discussed across some of the biggest media outlets in Norway (TV2 News, Norgesglasset, NRK Supernytt, Nitimen) - 10% increase in awareness of the fact that If is involved in the organisation of Fire Safety Week - 1,200 active leads with a hypothetical value of around NOK 18 million generated. On the basis that an average insurance policy costs NOK 5,000 annually and customers remain with If for 3 years on average. The total media budget for the campaign was NOK 1.5 million. Hypothetically, the value of the generated leads is 12 times the sum invested.

As part of our work to establish what Fire Safety Week is about, we stopped at a small piece of information. Frequent fire drills are held at schools, nurseries and workplaces, but just 4% of Norway’s population practice what to do in the event of a fire at home. This was an opportunity. Both the fire authorities and insurance companies have previously launched initiatives to persuade people to hold fire drills at home, and common to all of them has been that they played on people’s fears and wagged a finger at them. Our strategic aim was to go the opposite direction: can we get people to play with fire?

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.
