BackgroundLast autumn Enterprise Estonia together with leading local employers was running a new round of the ‘Work in Estonia’ online recruitment coding challenge – targeted at skilled IT professionals from eight European countries. They were required to visit the online testing site, participate in the coding tests supplied by the recruiting Estonian companies, and if succesfully completed, enjoy a faster review and recruitment process.
Describe the strategyWe needed a campaign which: • motivates audience to interact with the brand for mutual benefit. • helps to re-enforce Estonia brand image of a digital country, offering a range of professional opportunities. • with every stage of the consumer journey brings a satisfying experience, helping to strengthen the audience affinity with Estonia as an employer country brand. From the research we knew that every 3rd software developer is unsatisfied with their jobs, and that while only 13% of developers are actively looking for a job, 3 out of 4 are interested in hearing about job opportunities. We also knew the things developers are looking for in the new job and integrated these considerations into our codepieces and other texts. We aimed to engage IT professionals, by talking to them with work language, yet recognising them as people not just professionals. Showing that we understand their needs, joys and frustrations.
Describe the execution‘Form follows function’ approach was employed – challenge the software developers wherever they get in touch with the campaign, not just at the testing site, doing it emotionally and intellectually and in their language – so that only most suitable candidates show up at the testing grounds. A series of cryptic (for general public) banners was created, each a combination of a fixable code piece and a matching headline inviting to solve a puzzle and consider a career move to Estonia. The 4 main banners and 2 retargeting ads were placed at national online career portals and coders’ sites, as well as in international social networks and Google search. After clicking a banner, user was taken to the campaign’s landing page where (s)he needed to complete a warm-up exercise, code of which was featured on the clicked banner. After that the user was granted access to the employers’ testing page.
List the results• More than 200 000 unique users engaged • Less than 20% bounce rate for the landing page • 667 candidate resumes were registered with the employers
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.
