  • 1. Advertising & Creative Strategy
  • 2. Print Ad (2009): By Nestle for KitKat Mini
  • 3. Creative Strategy
  • 4. Creative Tactics Puzzle chosen: Crossword, a word puzzle usually in the form of a square, with black shaded squares. Reason Being: Crossword is the most well known puzzle and people usually solve crosswords during a mini break. The tone of the advertisement is simple using black and white as the main theme to blend in with the office/newspaper styles
  • 5. Target Audience
  • 6. Characteristics of Original Ad Simple: They have selected very simple background a black and white theme with minimal description. It’s easy to understand Clever: the ad is well researched because people usually come across and enjoy solving simple crosswords during a mini break without a lot of stress. Break-time: The main concept is to take it easy during the break-time
  • 7. Critique based on ROI Relevance: There is no direct link between the crossword and the chocolate. The indirect link may be what a simple crossword may suggest: to take it easy Originality: The ad is very original as no chocolate company has used this concept before making it very unique. Impact: It has only a small amount of impact on the audience, the lack of chocolate in the ad may do nothing to attract the audience. If unaware of the brand people may be confused by the advertisement.
  • 8. Improvement of Ad Elements Kit Kat has gained a foothold in the chocolate industry and has become a household brand but this does not guarantee that every advertisement from Nestle will be fool-proof or flawless. Flaws: • • • • • Dull: The ad looks too plain and lacks color. Irrelevant words: The words used in the crossword are irrelevant and may elicit negative emotions in people like cruelty, negligence, slyness, betrays. Small logo: The logo is so small that it might be missed on a quick scroll or flip. Unreadable Clue: The clue for the incomplete word is way too small to read. Lacks product picture: there is no picture of the product so those who are not aware of the brand will not understand the ad
