Summary

Girls aren’t born ashamed of their genitals. Yet over half of women are embarrassed by theirs and a growing number wonder how to “get the perfect vagina”. How can you care for something if you don’t love it the way it is? This case shows how Libresse, a period care brand new to intimate care, decided to dynamite the myth of the perfect vulva through much-needed diversity and positivity that culture and the category were denying – because the only imperfect vulva is the one that is silenced and unloved. It’ll explain how the decision to stop dancing around the issue – and instead, made it sing – was the right thing to do for women and for the brand: • Launched organically, the long-form film earned media through sheer relevance, gaining traction globally. • It smashed all brand metrics, including “brand seem different in the category” – over double the norm (Ipsos Dec. 2018). • And we saw an immediate sales uplift at launch, meeting or surpassing targets across the campaign period, with products Libresse had never sold before, and 5 weeks after the launch, Libresse wipes already gained significant ground with market share reaching 33% – not bad for a new entrant in intimate care. (Nielsen data, Dec. 2018).

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.
