Tell the jury about the art direction.

The Stabilo Boss is a tool for highlighting written or printed passages and words. This is the analogue heritage we wanted to stay true to. But to emphasize the storytelling, we decided to not just write about the women and then highlighting the crucial copy parts, but to use what already existed: historic, black-and-white photos. These show group shots, where men are in forefront or in the center of the visual. Thanks to the Stabilo Boss stroke the previously unremarkable women now become the focal point. Combined with copies telling the story of their remarkable accomplishments.

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.

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.
