Describe the creative idea

DO Black is a unique creative use of data to in a significant way activate and engage both for brand affinity and change of behaviour. About 60% of a person's carbon footprint derives from consumption. Changing consumer behavior can significantly reduce CO2-emissions. DO Black is a radical tool and the first credit card with a CO2-emission limit, stopping you from overspending, not based on available funds but on the impact by your consumption. The consumer journey includes three the ability to measure the impact of every transaction (Åland Index), the set CO2-emission limit calculated per country/capita, and a CO2-emission limit overriding accounts credit level.

Describe the execution

The need for tools to tackle the climate crisis is very large and the brand market fit is substantiated by data; 98% of the Swedes believe we are impacted by climate change. 78% want to mitigate it on a personal level. 70% say habits are an obstacle and 65% would change bank for a climate smart alternative. Sources: Naturvårdsverket, 2018. WWF Survey Climate Change, Earth Hour 2016. The strategy with DO Black is to accelerate the understanding of your impact, by having it directly halted thus pioneering conscious consumption, and actively engage with other payment providers to do the same. This approach was accelerated by standing on the shoulders of giants like UN, Mastercard and Standard & Poors amongst other for reach beyond our own capabilities. 2018, March, tech pre-study with Ålandsbanken 2018, June, Tech dev of first platform 2018, September, negotiations with UN 2018, October, com-launch of Doconomy platform 2019, February, MOU from UN 2019, March, Approval from Mastercard 2019, March, Tech dev IRL CO2 limit 2019, April, Patent registration process 2019, April, Launch of the DO Black campaign (Digital, SoMe and PR) 2019, June, Patent filed 2019, November, first bank up start for implementation

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.
