    • GPC 2Q 13 1 A Letter from Mark a q u a r t e r ly n e w s l e t t e r f o r t h e g l o b a l p r o d u c t c o m m i t t e e Dear Friends, The last few months have been hectic and exhilarating, filled with constant travel that’s left me with scarcely any time to reflect upon the impressive haul of metal Leo Burnett offices have accumulated at the world’s most prestigious advertising award shows. The good news has been coming in at a steady clip since early May, when a sizable group of Burnetters from across the world gathered in Moscow, for an Executive Leadership Team meeting and the 2Q13 Global Product Committee. We spent a busy week diligently working in the Russian capital, and then departed to points across the world with the wind at our back, confident about our company’s smart strategic maneuvers and bolstered by the brilliance of a fresh new collection of beautiful 7+ work. In the weeks immediately after the GPC, Leo Burnett had strong performances at the One Show, at the Clio Awards, at El Sol de IberoAmerica, at D&AD, and finally at the 60th annual Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity, the pinnacle of all advertising festivals. I’ve just returned from Cannes, where Leo Burnett had a record-breaking week, capping off a remarkable run of resounding success. Our performance on the world stage makes me deeply proud to be a part of this company, and I can’t thank all of you enough for all the hard work that’s led us to this point. Our sustained global success is testimony to our unified company culture; we walk together, we strive together, we feed off each other’s passion, and we celebrate each other’s successes as our own. We are a deeply talented family, sharing a heritage, a worldview, and a future that grows brighter with each passing day.
    • GPC 2Q 13 2 The GPC was lucky enough to be in Moscow during the week of the city’s annual Victory Day Parade, a festive state celebration commemorating the Red Army’s triumph over Nazi forces in May of 1945, marking the end of what the Russians call their Great Patriotic War. Our group took a quick break from evaluating work to venture up to the hotel roof so we could marvel at Russian fighter jets performing acrobatic flyovers above the Kremlin, as columns of tanks and military vehicles paraded through the streets below. This dramatic “show of force” was the theme of our entire week in Russia. The creative firepower of our network was on full display, and as the GPC mulled over almost 600 submissions, from offices across the planet, it became clear to the panel that our network is close to firing on all cylinders. Even ideas that fell a little short of being 7+ had strong merits to them, and there was an abundance of pieces rooted in smart strategic thinking. The collection of 7+ work in the following pages represents the best of what we saw in Moscow, and it’s a fascinating compilation of exquisitely crafted ideas executed across a range of communication channels. It is the “creative show of force” that our colleagues in Leo Burnett Moscow promised us, and I hope you find this work as awe-inspiring as we did. I departed Moscow with high hopes for Leo Burnett at Cannes. Every year, Cannes is the focus of an enormous amount of time and energy, and we hope to leave the festival with an ever increasing haul of Lions, our own “creative show of force” that positions Leo Burnett in its rightful place alongside the best agencies in the world. This is our goal, not because we need any more shiny trophies to fill our offices, but because the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity is indisputably the barometer for our entire industry. The health of our company is directly tied to our creative performance. Every year, an increasing number of clients descend on the festival, looking for the people and agencies they want to work with. These thousands of clients come to Cannes to learn and be inspired, and they are seeking out the most creative marketing people in the world to serve their brands. To stand tall on stage at Cannes and collect a lion opens up countless new doors, each of which inevitably leads to new business opportunities and increased revenue. In an economic climate fraught with uncertainty, the most bankable and reliable asset is still creativity. Creativity moves markets. Creativity can dramatically alter the trajectory of businesses, because creativity has the power to change human behaviour. We put a laser sharp focus on the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity because even after 60 years, a Cannes Lion remains the most universally recognized award denoting creativity in business. Cannes is the measuring stick by which we are all measured, and every year, the festival sets the bar for creativity a little bit higher. I’m deeply proud of Leo Burnett’s performance at Cannes 2013. Our network had a record-breaking 215 pieces shortlisted across all categories, the most in our history, and ultimately we won 53 Lions, the second highest total in our network’s history. 30 of our offices earned shortlist nods, and ultimately, 17 Leo Burnett agencies earned a total of 7 Gold, 18 Silver, and 28 Bronze Lions. This stellar performance is a result of countless hours of hard work by passionate, dedicated, and talented people. I want to congratulate each and every one of you who helped deliver these outstanding results. a q u a r t e r ly n e w s l e t t e r f o r t h e g l o b a l p r o d u c t c o m m i t t e e A Creative Show Of Force
    • GPC 2Q 13 3 Our presence at Cannes was a success on multiple levels. While our work was winning praise from all corners, a dedicated team was spearheading one of the most talked-about recruitment efforts the festival has ever seen. In the midst of the world’s largest gathering of creative talent, Leo Burnett launched “Show Us Your Bling,” a tactical campaign designed to reach out to 2013 Cannes Lion winners and deliver congratulatory VIP treatment to them. By offering up enticing incentives to new Lion winners, the best and brightest talents at Cannes found themselves talking to Leo Burnett about their futures as they basked in unexpected rewards. A dynamic team of creative recruiters led by Debbie Bougdanos ensured that every Gold Lion winner was knocking at our door, as they enjoyed perks like helicopter rides, cutting in line at the Gutter Bar, and access to exclusive parties. Our recruitment effort was so popular and successful that Contagious Magazine called it the festival’s “Best Agency Self-Promotion.” This kind of drive and creativity channeled into our recruitment efforts is one of the reasons why Leo Burnett attracts a fresh new influx of phenomenal talent every year. We are only as good as our people. Leo Burnett’s annual WILDFIRE seminar at Cannes was also hugely successful. Hosted in conjunction with Contagious Magazine, we once again packed the house to lead a compelling discussion entitled “Full of Tomorrow”, in which we explored how fledgling, future-facing technologies are changing the ways people interact with brands and products. Over the last few years this seminar has become one of the festival’s most compelling draws, and in 2013, Paul Kemp-Robertson from Contagious and our own James Kirkham, Leo Burnett’s newly appointed Global Head of Social and Mobile, left attendees with a thought-provoking portrayal of technologies that will shape the future. Our clients also left Cannes riding high. Coca-Cola departed the festival having won the prestigious title of Creative Marketer of the Year, a fitting testament to their dogged determination to pursue great creative ideas. Our global photographic salute to them through the #toCoke hashtag was a beautiful gesture that honored their commitment over the years to creativity. The way our agency came together across the world to participate in this toast to Coca-Cola was truly touching. But this symbolic gesture was hardly all we brought to the table: our brilliant “Small World Machines” work produced collaboratively by LB/Sydney, Chicago, and Buenos Aires was universally beloved at the festival, and earned multiple Gold lions for Coca-Cola across several categories. Delivering groundbreaking, innovative, Lion-winning work for one of our vital multinational clients is something I want to see happen every year. Beneath the brightest lights, under the harshest scrutiny, our work spoke for itself. Congratulations to the team that developed “Small World Machines,” which is the very essence of a HumanKind act, a compelling, meaningful gesture that enriches lives, rooted in the brand’s human purpose of spreading happiness across the planet. a q u a r t e r ly n e w s l e t t e r f o r t h e g l o b a l p r o d u c t c o m m i t t e e Leo Burnett @ Cannes 2013
    • GPC 2Q 13 4 There is so much more I could tell you about Cannes 2013, about Leo Burnett’s presence in the Palais, and about how our work was received and the recognition it earned. I could tell you about the lifetimes worth of knowledge served up by so many master teachers and creative savants, to grateful audiences soaking up their offerings like sponges. I could tell you about life changing conversations, about late night encounters, about hard mornings spent recovering from triumphs that people have been working towards for their entire careers. I could describe surreal moments on stage under spotlights that people will savor for decades. Cannes serves as a crucible for all kinds of stories, but suffice to say, I’ll simply report that Leo Burnett stood tall amongst the best in the world. Our ideas held their own. The passion and ambition that suffuses our best efforts was on full display. Part of the heritage of laboring under the Leo Burnett banner means that we’ve inherited the desire for greatness that our founder built his reputation and company on. Sometimes, in moments of great triumph, on the rare occasion that we indeed grasp “one of those hot, unreachable stars,” that desire is temporarily sated, as it was on stage at Cannes this past week. But those moments are fleeting, and a deeper hunger still remains, for ever more greatness to feed and sustain it. And so it begins again. The path to Cannes 2014 starts now. What are you bringing to the table? I want to thank the Leo Burnett offices that worked so hard to earn lions in 2013. Amsterdam, Bangkok, Buenos Aires, Chicago, Colombo, Dubai, Frankfurt, Lapiz, London, Moscow, Mumbai, New York, Paris, Sao Paulo, Sydney, Toronto and Zurich each won one of the most coveted creative awards in the world. Our winning work covers a range of categories and represents a vast and diverse skill set operating across many different channels. I raise a glass to the teams who conceived, and then fanatically polished and refined their ideas until they were unequivocally worthy of being held up as best in class executions, crafted to within an inch of their lives. I urge all of you to survey our winning work, and to take pride in it, and to aspire to it. Our goal remains the same as it was when our founder laid down the gauntlet so many decades ago: to be the best in the world, bar none. After all the excitement of the past few weeks, I’m grateful to have some time to relax and take it all in. Please look over the 2Q13 7+ work, as well as the groundbreaking campaigns we’ve produced that won Lions at Cannes. Let this work serve as both inspiration and motivation, and as a road map for where we want to go. I want to thank our good friends in Leo Burnett Moscow for hosting a phenomenal GPC in their rich and vibrant city. LB/Moscow has been ranked as the top agency in Russia for 5 years running, a testament to Moscow’s talented leadership team and their incessant push to be the best. Vladimir, Misha, Ilya, Selim, Julia, Anna, and Michael orchestrated an incredible week for us, and all of us left Russia with a deep appreciation for their culture and home. I hope to return to soon, because we really only caught a tantalizing glimpse of a truly amazing place. I thank you all for your hard work. Let’s build on this. Success breeds success. We have much to be grateful for, but miles to go before we sleep.

The Client Perspective. 8 The Black Couch Series: Fernando Bellotti on Trust & Conviction 9 The 2Q13 8-Balls 10 The 2Q13 7+ Gallery 17 “A copy of a speech which recently came across my desk hit me between the eyes. It pertained to the editorial policy of a magazine, but it puts into new perspective some of the things which this agency stands for, and a point of view which has contributed much to our success to date. It quoted Herbert Bayard Swope who, when asked for a formula for success, said: “I can’t give you a formula for success. But I can give you a sure-fire formula for failure - just try to please everybody.” It went on to say in effect that the minute you start watering down a creative product with cautious concessions to “me-tooism,” your character and your integrity are lost. “The essence of American business,” says the speech, “is risk. The day it ceases to take risks, that day it ceases to be either American or business.” In the creative arts “the most ignoble of all philosophies is the rabbit policy of ‘safety first.’” There is no better way to wreck yourself than “to seek the security of agreement… by sailing close to shore, inside the snug harbor of tradition.’”

    • GPC 2Q 13 8 Does Award Winning Advertising Sell? The Client Perspective at Cannes 2013 Over the last 30 years, the Leo Burnett company has repeatedly researched the question “does award-winning advertising sell?” Through countless internal studies, we’ve repeatedly and categorically proved that there is a direct correlation between award-winning creative work and marketplace success for brands. But don’t take our word for it. At Cannes 2013, the world’s biggest clients were beating this drum enthusiastically. For the first time this year, 25 percent of all the delegates at the Cannes Lions Festival of Creativity were clients. Their numbers are swelling every year, and they come because they recognize the competitive advantage that great creativity provides for their businesses. In the video below, leaders of three of the world’s most successful multinational companies talk about “the Business Case for Creativity.” Jonathan Mildenhall of Coca-Cola, Mark Pritchard of Procter & Gamble, and Andy Fennell of Diageo each offer indisputable rationales for why creative award shows are critically important to their overall outlook. It’s simply business calculation. Please take the time to view this video. Andy Fennell, the Chief Marketing Officer of Diageo offers this notable quote at the end of the video, and his thinking has distinct parallels to our own HumanKind scale for assessing our product: “I think creative excellence is pivotal to drive brilliant performance. I mean, I can almost prove that 10 out of 10 work drives business results that 7 out of 10 work doesn’t. We’ve always felt that; we felt that when it was all about traditional advertising. We feel that now that content comes in so many different forms. So we’ll risk a 3 out of 10 in pursuit of a 10, because 10’s change the trajectory of your business, and 7’s don’t.” a q u a r t e r ly n e w s l e t t e r f o r t h e g l o b a l p r o d u c t c o m m i t t e e
    • GPC 2Q 13 9 The Black Couch Series: Fernando Bellotti on Trust & Conviction The 2Q13 GPC was privileged to listen to Leo Burnett Latin America’s Regional ECD Fernando Bellotti deconstruct and describe the creative process behind some of the award-winning work he’s helped create over the last decade at LB/Lisbon and LB/Buenos Aires. In 2005 Fernando won Portugal’s first Gold Lion for the masterful film “Alzheimer’s” he shot for the Institute for the Support of Abused Children. In a candid and far- reaching interview, Fernando described the journey this film took from conception to execution, and he also touched on the creative process behind other notable work he’s created in recent years for Fiat, Garbarino, Car One, & Jeep in Argentina. The panel was enthralled with Fernando’s insights, and he generously summarized some of his thoughts by offering up a handful of thought-provoking slides titled “a few things I’ve learnt”, which concluded the conversation. To watch this quarter’s Black Couch Series interview, click on this page and listen to a master storyteller talk about how passion and persistence are essential components to the painstaking tasks of building effective client relationships and selling good ideas. Fernando’s perspective is invaluable, and the GPC was delighted as always to hear him discourse on the path to greatness. a q u a r t e r ly n e w s l e t t e r f o r t h e g l o b a l p r o d u c t c o m m i t t e e

This brilliant initiative perfectly captures the brand purpose of Jeep, which is to provide drivers with the freedom to escape to uncharted destinations where only off-road vehicles can travel. A beautifully crafted film showcases how this product functions, as a frustrated office worker gets into his Jeep and is directed out of the city into progressively rougher terrain until he finds himself alone on a beautiful deserted sand bluff overlooking a stunning beach. Only a Jeep 4x4 could lead to you this place, a place you would never find without a ‘GPS to Get Lost.’ ballgallery

To combat irresponsible drinking, LB/Mexico City worked with Corona to devise an ingenious breathalyzer device that was used in bars and restaurants which featured valet parking. When people arrived and gave their keys to the parking valets, the valets deposited the keys inside these cases. At the end of the night, when guests wanted to drive home, they were asked to blow into the breathalyzer device in order to retrieve their keys. If the guest’s blood alcohol level indicated drunkenness, the device remained locked, preventing them from driving, and Corona graciously provided a designated driver to chauffeur the guest home safely. If the device sensed that a person was not impaired and could drive safely, the keys were released, and the guest received a coupon for their responsible drinking. This brilliant device has been utilized in a few Mexico City establishments, and will soon be rolled out on a larger national scale. This beautifully crafted activation idea for Corona encourages responsible drinking, while actively keeping dangerous drivers off the road. ballgallery

His condescension grows increasingly intolerable, until at long last his absolute dependance on his tablet leads to a hilarious comeuppance in the bathroom. This delightful film went viral globally within days of its release, and is a great example of concise, insightful storytelling that resonates with people. ‘Paper has a great future. Le Trèfle.’ Geeta Agro Products - Bio Farm Good Paper Project Leo Burnett / Mumbai Bronze Cannes Design Lion Category: Design (Packaging) Leo Burnett Mumbai’s design team was asked to create new packaging for an organic fertilizer, and delivered an outstanding and unique solution by creating packaging composed out of the product itself. By compacting organic fertilizer into heavy paper, and printing on it with organic ink, the team developed compostable packages that could be torn up into little pieces and planted alongside the contents of each package. This simple but brilliant idea is perfectly targeted to an audience concerned with sustainable agriculture, and the witty and insightful writing on the packages differentiates this brand from all of its competitors.
    • GPC 2Q 13 13 a q u a r t e r ly n e w s l e t t e r f o r t h e g l o b a l p r o d u c t c o m m i t t e e Wijeya Newspapers - Adha Newspaper Unity paper Leo Burnett / Colombo Bronze Cannes Media Lion Category: Print In 2009, Sri Lanka’s brutal 30-year civil war finally came to an end. Four years later, the reconciliation process between the warring factions of the country remains a work-in-progress. These two communities speak two completely different languages, which utilize different scripts. Adha, a mass-market daily newspaper asked Leo Burnett Colombo to find a way to bridge the divide between these two communities, specifically around the Sri Lankan New Year’s holiday, which is celebrated by both groups. The agency responded by creating a bilingual newspaper that united the two alphabets, juxtaposing similar letters in Sinhala and Tamil which helped educate each community about the other’s language. Through elegant typography and graphic design, the agency constructed a beautiful campaign promoting the Adha “Unity Paper,” a first-of-its-kind publication written in both languages and targeting both groups. This publication and the campaign around it was hugely popular in Sri Lanka, and helped both communities take a few important steps towards a sustainable peace and mutual understanding. ballgallery

It’s a silent disease, often diagnosed at a very late stage because of the stealthy way it conceals itself: every year millions of people die because they ignore cancer’s symptoms for far too long. To raise awareness of this fact, Leo Burnett Bogota created the Cancer Tweets campaign for the Colombian League Against Cancer. The agency created seven Twitter accounts, one for each of the most lethal forms of cancer, and gave them quirky names like @boob_lover (for Breast Cancer) and @shithappens (for colon cancer). These virtual cancer accounts then innocuously began to follow thousands of people online, including celebrities, at first in silence, spreading throughout the web unchecked and largely unnoticed. Only after quite some time did these virtual cancer accounts announce their presence, gradually becoming notable presences in people’s feeds through increasingly cryptic tweets. At first, few of the people on Twitter took note of the virtual cancers following them. Only when these ‘cancer tweets’ became quite overt did people engage in conversation with the virtual cancers, and for those who detected it early, virtual cancer stopped following them and sent them a message. For those people on Twitter who ignored the virtual cancers, they ultimately received a message like this one: “@lastbreathe is a lung #virtualcancer that talked to you but you ignored it. If it was a real cancer, you’d be in a terminal stage now.” This brilliant campaign makes perfect use of the Twitter platform to convey a dramatic truth about the nature of cancer and the need for people to be diligent about paying close attention to their health.

After customers ate messy meals and spilled food on these vinyl tablecloths, a few quick swipes with a napkin renders the tablecloths spotless, dramatizing how easily Tide helps clean up messy stains on clothing. ‘Tide. Don’t be scared of stains.’ Procter & Gamble - Tide Self-Washing T-Shirt Leo Burnett / Warsaw Category: Promo & Activation College students are notorious for bringing loads of dirty laundry home for their parents to wash. LB/Warsaw used this insight to reach a new generation of students with a message about the ease and power of using Tide washing detergent. The agency created a self- washing T-shirt, which has Tide detergent printed onto a design depicting mother weary of washing endless loads of dirty laundry. To wash the shirt, simply place it in water or in a washing machine. This agency initiative is in its early stages and will likely be rolled out on a larger scale in the year to come. Tide. Procter & Gamble - Bounce Forget About It Leo Burnett / Toronto Category: Interactive (YouTube) This quirky spot leverages the eminently forgettable quality of Bounce Dryer Bars by inserting the product into one of the most famous viral video scenes of all time, and wryly observing that its presence is completely inconspicuous. Why? Because with the Bounce Dryer Bar, you can simply ‘Stick it and Forget It.’

In 2013, Earth Hour participants in Singapore challenged the population to turn up their air conditioning by a single degree all year round to help conserve energy. As part of the “I will if you will” platform, an integrated campaign urged the nation to “sleep naked”, and yielded impressive results that will have a far-reaching impact on energy-conservation over the course of an entire year. ‘Earth Hour. Go beyond the hour. I will if you will.’ Next Condoms - Earth Hour Earth Hour Condoms Leo Burnett / São Paulo Category: Promo & Activation Next Condoms wanted to encourage participation in Earth Hour 2013. In collaboration with Leo Burnett, the brand manufactured limited edition glow-in-the-dark Earth Hour condoms, giving people a truly enticing reason to participate in a voluntary hour of darkness. Worldwide environmental solidarity has rarely felt so good.

To provoke a wide-ranging public conversation about the relative merits of bikes versus cars as a means of transportation for people, LB/Lisbon created a unique, one of a kind bicycle called “Carma”, which was constructed entirely out of car parts salvaged from a junk yard automobile. This bicycle built out of used car parts became the centerpiece of a compelling integrated campaign. The bike was equipped with a GPS device, and made available publicly on the streets of Lisbon for people to ride it. The campaign encouraged people to ride Carma until the bicycle’s use offset all the gas-powered miles driven by the car it came from. Ingenious media executions helped drive attention to this campaign. Posters were created using old automobile motor oil as ink, and a unique ‘Carma’ font was designed using some of Carma’s lines and angles as source material. A short ‘Carma’ film was also produced and submitted to film festivals. The bike itself toured Portugal, earning greater publicity for the project, and helping to foster a deeper dialogue about the role of and merits of bicycles in a culture dominated by cars.

This quirky and angular typeface is meticulously crafted and quite unique. The agency also produced a series of immaculate silk screened posters, created using old motor oil from the junk yard car that originally served as the source for Carma’s frame. The attention to detail evident in these pieces earned high praise from the 2Q13 GPC, who loved the art direction and thinking behind this work.

To raise the profile of this company and to encourage students and their parents to consider contacting them for their services, a guerrilla street art campaign was devised by Arc. Misspelled graffiti on the streets of London was identified, and its grammar was corrected in situ, and the corrections were tagged with bright, attention-getting stickers. This idea led to phenomenal results for the Tutor Crowd, and a spike in students.

For many years, the charity has been selling toques, with all proceeds going to benefit the organization’s work. In an effort to clarify exactly where the money was going from the sale of these hats, an eye-catching ambient piece was placed in a high-traffic area, and each toque was packaged with a different message detailing the many different ways Raise the Roof supports the homeless. This effort boosted toque sales and helped increase public awareness. Raise the Roof Thank You For Helping the Homeless Leo Burnett / Toronto Category: Ambient These ambient pieces for Raise the Roof offer gratitude to people who bought toques to support the homeless in Canada. Large stickers were placed in spots where toque sales had directly affected homelessness, and these pieces thanked the generosity of buyers for helping to address an ongoing problem filling the streets of Canada.

To encourage people to adopt strays from Unidog, LB/Bangkok created “the Dreaming Dogs Project,” where evocative dog dreams were painted onto balloon thought-bubbles which were then tied to the necks of dogs in high-traffic areas. These balloons told emotional stories that appealed to people passing by, leading to a spike in dog adoptions from Unidog. Association of People With Physical Disabilities - APDI Supportive Balloons Leo Burnett / Bangkok Category: Promo & Activation LB/Bangkok wanted to raise funds in order to purchase and repair wheelchairs for ADPI, who would supply wheelchairs to disabled people who need them. Broken wheelchairs were installed in public areas. Each chair was missing a wheel, and leaned over to one side. We then asked people to buy supportive helium balloons that could be tied to one side of the broken wheelchair, elevating it to make the chair appear functional. Over 17,000 balloons were sold to the public, transforming this simple gesture into a 12% increase in the organization’s annual fund raising. The success of these installations helped turn these supportive balloons into a symbol of hope for disabled people.

To help raise money for this organization, the creative team at Lapiz designed a unique “money calendar”, that helps people collect their spare change on a daily basis. At the end of the month, users can make a few simple folds to transform the calendar into an efficient mailer that can be easily sent to the organization’s fund raising department. Once fully complete, each calendar brings in about $55 to Mujeres Latinas by the end of the year. This work resulted in a boost in fund raising.

This kind of selflessness led Lebanese NGO Offre Joie to create a powerful campaign documenting this effort, which concluded with a call to action asking people to “join them in the joy of giving.” This timely and successful campaign quickly became the talk of Lebanon. Amnesty International Empathy Calendar Leo Burnett / Warsaw Category: Design To dramatize the long, drawn out sentences of global prisoners of conscience, who are often locked up with no idea for how long they’ll be incarcerated, Leo Burnett Warsaw created the ‘Empathy Calendar,’ a 100 meter long concrete wall that documented each day with a single bleak line. By dramatizing time spent in prison in such a visceral way, the wall calendar generated attention and news for Amnesty International’s call to “set the imprisoned free.”

The app became one of the most talked-about mobile apps in the country, and generated publicity for Jeep that high- lighted the brand’s claims that it’s 4x4 vehicles can take you where no others can.

To raise funds for this initiative, McDonald’s let kids in the Children’s Hospital design wire rings to give to the people they missed the most during their hospital stays. These ring designs were then replicated and sold in McDonald’s restaurants nation-wide, with the stories of the kids who made them incorporated into the packaging. All proceeds from the sales of these rings went to finance the House for Moms. This integrated campaign utilized multiple channels, including a social media app, all of which helped raise the necessary funds for the construction of this building.

To promote the show, LB/Mumbai created a series of unique vending machines, that dispensed customized art to each customer who bought a can of Coke. The machines took pictures of each person, and then printed out a piece of abstract art comprised of a multitude of musical instruments laid out on a page. When the buyer placed their Coke can on a designated spot on the page, they could see their own image reflected in the can, composed out of the musical instruments laid across the print out. This unique, bespoke art helped successfully promote the second season of Coke Studio. Coca-Cola - Coke Studio Reflection of Music - Installation Leo Burnett / Mumbai Category: Ambient Giant installations were constructed in high-traffic areas to promote the second season of Coke Studio. A mix of western instruments and Indian classical music instruments were arranged to create abstract patterns on big floor spaces.

After draining the jug dry, each then contemplates putting the empty jug back into the fridge, as they contemplate whether or not they should refill the jug in consideration of the other people in their family.

The grandfather recalls how his son- in-law tactlessly broached the subject of how to divide up his property once he dies. Each flashback is hilarious and provides a vivid portrayal of completely believable families. Ultimately the little boy, teen girl, and grandpa all realize that there’s at least one beloved person in their family who they don’t want to disappoint, and so they all take the time to fill the jug up again by making a fresh batch of Arcor juice. ‘There’s always a reason to fill it up.

With the ubiquitous rise of Facebook, fewer people were sending Hallmark cards, choosing instead to simply post messages online on people’s Facebook pages. However, there is still a univer- sal appeal to receiving a physical card in the mail. With this in mind, LB/Chicago helped Hallmark develop a brilliant, intuitive Facebook app that lets you send customized, physical cards to your close friends without ever leaving your computer. Given that people miss 84% of the news in their Facebook newsfeed, the app helps you select people you would like to send cards to, and then keeps you updated as to eventful happenings in their lives that might be worthy of a card. You can then buy and construct a customized card through the app, sign it digitally, and then send it through the mail without ever venturing into a store or post office. This new app boosted Hall- mark’s card sales, and helps its users affirm their closest relationships. By developing an card sales app that works perfectly with Facebook, Hallmark ensures that you can stay connected online with the people you care about while still taking the time every now and then to send a tactile, physical reminder to your loved ones telling them what you want them to hear. The simplicity, ease of use, and strong insights evident in this interactive work made it a highlight for the 2Q13 GPC, who regarded it as a great example of Leo Burnett delivering a digital business solution to a client in need of this kind of idea. Congratulations to LB/ Chicago for the “Tell them” app, a future-facing idea that will serve one of our oldest clients well. gallery7+
