4Q15 GPC, Indonesia

  1. 1. GPC 4Q 15 1 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, Last month, at the conclusion of a productive and inspiring week spent chairing the 4Q15 Global Product Committee meeting in Indonesia, I sat with a group of Burnetters from across the world as we watched a captivating performance of traditional Balinese music and dance. Onstage a dynamic group of people was working in perfect sync with each other, the dancers adorned with ornate jewelry and colorful costumes, and accompanied by an ensemble of flawless musicians attuned and responsive to everything around them. When you observe a group of people operating with immaculate precision to achieve a shared goal, you can’t help but marvel at the orchestration of it. There’s magic on display when collaborations come together. I feel that same sense of awe and admiration when I see an agency produce undeniably beautiful work. When you look at some of the stunning HumanKind acts created by our company, what you’re seeing is the fruit of constructive working relationships, and the sum total of blood sweat and tears culled from countless different people playing a small part in much larger productions. No one succeeds alone in our business; our greatest victories are collective efforts, and our strongest ideas often demand an ‘all-hands-on-deck’ approach. As we step forward into the bright light of a new year, it’s worth reflecting on the fact that we do our best work when we’re marching to the same beat, and when we’re pulling together in the same direction. I want this kind of cohesive teamwork to be a focus in 2016. When we push each other to excel, we all win. A Letter from Mark

GPC 4Q 15 2 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 I want to thank our hosts from LB/Jakarta for insisting that the 4Q15 GPC take place in Bali, a unique island with rich and vibrant traditions that left a deep impression on all of us. Brian Capel and Anne Ridwan were consummate hosts who organized an immersive experience for all of us, ensuring that we were exposed to Bali’s inspiring cultural heritage. Over the course of our week, we also had the opportunity to share the GPC experience with a large number of observers from LB/Jakarta, who used the meeting as a creative training program. There’s an enormous amount to be learned for any creative professional who is immersed in hundreds of campaigns from across the planet, and who is asked to evaluate the merits and flaws of each idea and its execution. What makes the GPC such a valuable tool for so many is the opportunity to listen to the probing debates around the work, and to bask in the exchange of a range of opinions and perspectives. This is what makes the GPC a game-changing experience for many first-time delegates. We were delighted to open up the 4Q15 forum to so many people. The backdrop helped, of course. Bali is a lush green volcanic island that’s been home to deeply creative people for millennia. Some call it a magical place, and there’s clearly truth to that. The island feels flush with energy, and the people who live there have cultivated a spiritual worldview that fuels their lifestyles and has shaped their aesthetics. There’s an apocryphal story about the Balinese people in Marshall McLuhan’s classic book “Understanding Media: the Extensions of Man.” Before making his now famous assertion that “the medium is the message,” McLuhan noted that the Balinese infuse their everyday lives with a clear sense of devotion, that manifests in an intense and unwavering zeal for craftsmanship; in Bali, the cultivation of beauty is a way of life. This idea is expressed in the Balinese saying that McLuhan references: “we have no art; we make everything as beautiful as we can.” This statement reflects the culture of people who for hundreds of years dedicated the bulk of their creative endeavors to beautifying their temples as an ongoing devotional practice. Today in Bali, everywhere you look there is immaculate beauty, deliberately laid out for maximum impact. In recent years the island has become a haven for intrepid craftsman and traveling artisans from across the planet, who appreciate the creative climate instilled by generations of locals who wholeheartedly embrace the classic mantra repeated so often by today’s designers and art directors: God is in the details.

  3. 3. GPC 4Q 15 3 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 I encourage all of you to spend some time poring over the 4Q15 7+ collection. There’s some really fresh ideas here, across a lot of different communication channels, and these ideas are inspiring examples of well-crafted HumanKind acts that will resonate with people and have an impact on our brands and clients. Some of this work builds on campaigns we saw earlier this year, which is what should happen when we’ve got solid strategic platforms that have strong foundations and are rooted in real human insights and truths. I’m proud of this work and of the teams that produced it, and this collection is a worthy conclusion to a very strong year for LB/WW. The new calendar year gives us an opportunity to refuel and reboot. We performed well in 2015, earning awards and praise all over the world for outstanding work we’ve produced for our clients. Even amidst uncertainty, and a business environment that’s transforming at a rapid clip, we continue to deliver creative business solutions that help brands and business grow to meet the challenges of today and tomorrow. Creativity will always be the strongest asset we have, and I’m deeply proud of the way our global network continually demonstrates how creativity has the power to transform human behavior. Over the next few weeks, I urge all of you to spend some time with your families, to rekindle your inner fires, and to seek out and find fresh inspiration and new insights that we can use to help propel us forward into 2016 with the wind at our backs. Congratulations on everything we achieved together this year, and I look forward to seeing what comes out of the hopper next year. Thank you all for your creativity, your passion, your drive, and for all your hard work. Merry Christmas, happy holidays, and best wishes for a happy and successful 2016! Kind regards, Mark Tutssel Chief Creative Officer Leo Burnett Worldwide

GPC 4Q 15 9 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 Atlantic Heaters - Thermor - Sauter The Cube Leo Burnett / Paris Category: Case Study Earlier this year, LB/Paris’ stunning film “37 days” for the Atlantic Group earned 2 Gold Lions and 2 Bronze Lions at Cannes. The film chronicles the passage of 37 days inside a heated Cube placed high in the mountains of British Colombia during the winter, where the Cube is the only sign of life amidst a frigid and barren landscape. Inside the Cube, plant seeds encased in ice begin to melt when the Cube’s heaters switch on, and over the course of a little more than 5 weeks, a lush green cornucopia takes root and blooms within the Cube. The film concludes with the line “Heat Is Life,” after vividly illustrating its point in an unforgettable and visceral way. The widespread success and popularity of this film has completely changed the business of Atlantic Heaters, breathing new life into a staid and invisible category. This case study documents how LB/Paris has built a larger campaign around their film, with online components and direct mail pieces culled from the Cube’s bountiful visuals. This case study documents the creation of one of the best ideas Leo Burnett Worldwide produced in 2015. ‘Heat is Life. Atlantic Group. Thermor. Sauter.’ ballgallery

With the advent of the Internet and the omnipresent role that mobile phones now play in the lives of young people, kids today are dealing with bullying in ways no generation before has ever experienced. LB/Melbourne devised a simple and ingenious tool that helps to prevent cyberbullying. Given how incredibly easy it is for kids to write and post hurtful comments online on platforms like Facebook and Twitter or with SMS messages, the agency worked with programmers to craft an app called Reword. Parents install reword on their children’s digital devices, and the app functions as a sort of “bullying spell-check,” that automatically detects hurtful comments and strikes a simple red line through them while asking the person typing to reconsider what they’ve written before posting it. This simple act of striking a red line through hateful text has been proven to lower rates of cyberbullying, and the agency believes it will help emphasize ethical behavior in children’s online interactions. The app is available for download from: http://www.reword.it/#/ ballgallery

In an attempt to counter this troubling trend, LB/Chicago enlisted some of the city’s leading hip hop artists to launch a campaign entitled “Music vs. Gun Violence.” As part of an ongoing conversation and dialogue at Chicago Ideas Week, the agency helped produce an interactive music video called “Put The Guns Down”, which invited anyone to add a verse to the music video, which was housed on a website containing poignant testimonials from people whose lives have been affected by gun violence. Currently, this interactive music video is over 1 hour long, as new lyricists continue to add fresh verses to a song whose message grows more urgent everyday. The artists featured in the video include Grammy-winner Common, along with local Chicago icons like King Louie, Katie Got Bandz, Saba, Nick Jr., Tree, Mic Terror, Lil Herb and Noname Gypsy. How Can You Support the Movement? You can add your own verse to the video at MusicVsGunViolence.com, and join the discussion on social media using the hashtag #PutTheGunsDown. ballgallery

Challenged to find a way to make this highlighter brand relevant in today’s digital world, LB/ Jakarta launched Stabilo Note, an app that lets people scan, high- light, and save passages of text on their devices, which can then be converted into text files that can be edited and shared. The app also encourages sales by keeping track of how much “ink” each user is using, and asking them to purchase more ink to refuel their app after hitting a certain threshold of usage. This simple and brilliant idea takes a traditional reading tool into the 21st century. ballgallery

How did this happen to this seemingly healthy and vivacious visitor? A stern-faced doctor explains the symptoms of Jawbone Syndrome, a paralyzing food coma induced by Anna’s voracious appetite that is described by the Thai people who witnessed it as “monstrous.” Footage shows Anna devouring an astonishing array of food from street vendors, boats, restaurants, until finally her body simply cannot process any- more. The doctor warns: “Tourists must be aware at all times, this is Thailand. Tasty foods are everywhere.” This brilliantly counterintuitive film for the Tourism Authority of Thailand went viral online immediately upon its release and captures the infinite array of delicious foods available to anyone visiting the Kingdom of Thailand. ballgallery

The move to make some of McDonald’s most popular breakfast items available all day comes after decades of people complaining, pleading, and lamenting about the fact that McDonald’s has traditionally stopped serving breakfast after 10:30 am. To publicize this crowd-pleasing move, LB/Chicago used actual tweets and social media posts from real people as the source material for a TV campaign celebrating the public’s new ability to buy an Egg McMuffin at 5 pm in the afternoon. These tongue-in-cheek commercials and the success of the All Day Breakfast launch helped McDonald’s shares reach a new all time record high in October 2015. Congratulations to LB/Chicago for helping usher in a new chapter in McDonald’s storied history in the USA. ballgallery

To dramatize how easy it is to utilize natural alternatives to chemicals, LB/Sydney launched the “Just” campaign, which centered an entire product line of organic cleaning items (like lemons in lieu of dish soap). The agency then placed these items on supermarket shelves in eye-catching recycled packaging, and promoted the idea through visually arresting outdoor executions and a series of online films featuring a quirky and entertaining spokesman. By teaching people how to be more responsible caretakers of the planet through conscious shopping decisions, the WWF initiated a nuanced national conversation about plastic, chemicals, and sustainable organic solutions that can replace our dependence on synthetic products. This beautiful eye-catching design work earned an 8-ball from the 4Q15 GPC. ballgallery

In a series of humorous spots, this man shows how to use the WWF’s “Just” products, and the simplicity of his solutions underscores the campaign’s larger point; it is easy to be a more responsible These films and their understated humor underscore the point that it is possible to be a more responsible consumer simply by embracing natural alternatives.

Akin to art installations, these billboards containing actual lemons, cinnamon sticks, and cucumbers invited people to interact with them and did a fantastic job of articulating the cam- paign’s core idea. These impossible to ignore pieces showed how ordinary organic items can easily replace synthetic chemical products, while encouraging people to develop a more conscious approach to their chemical usage.

Unlike any other fashion brand in the world, the 365 clothing collection was not created by designers, but curated by the agency, culled from clothing worn by someone homeless and by people without a residence or shelter. In the weeks leading up to the event, fashion celebrities and cultural influencers helped build interest in the 365 line through their social media accounts, so that the actual launch proved was well-attended and highly publicized. The 365 fashion line showcased clothes that told rich human stories; each garment was labeled with a tag documenting how many days it was worn outdoors by a homeless person. The event generated positive PR coverage in the news and also collected a large amount of donations directed towards an organization dedicated to helping the homeless in Portugal. This beautifully crafted and strategically compelling campaign is a fantastic example of a HumanKind act that forces people to rethink how they view and issue, while giving people an opportunity to engage and help address an ongoing social problem.

This case film examines the everyday lives of two street vendors and a motorcycle taxi driver in Vietnam, and documents their sales over the course of two days. On the first day, these participants wear their normal clothes, and go about their lives conducting their business. On the second day, each wears a clean white shirt. The three participants see a marked increase in their sales and a definite change in the attitudes of their customers, who are more positive and generous towards them. This simple and beautifully captured stunt concludes with the line, “trust the power of a white shirt.”

A blurry image of an unidentifiable young girl was placed on the cover of Cosmopolitan Magazine in the UK, accompanied with the following text, evoking the horrific honor killing of Shafilea Ahmed, who was suffocated with a plastic bag by her parents for embracing western culture and bringing ‘shame’ upon her family: “Shafilea was suffocated by her parents in front of her siblings.” This dramatic image was wrapped in the ubiquitous plastic cover commonly found on women’s magazines, which forced readers to rip open the plastic to read the magazine, driving home the horror of her murder. This brilliant, award-winning magazine cover helped raise publicity around Karma Nirvana’s successful lobbying campaign to create a national Day of Memory for “Britain’s Lost Women,” the victims and survivors of forced marriage and honour-based abuse. The inaugural Day of Memory took place on the 14th of July, Shafilea Ahmed’s birthday, and in the lead up to this day LB/London worked with Karma Nirvana to launch a social media campaign that generated supportive messages and engagement from across the planet. The agency used every tweet with the hashtag #RememberShafilea as fuel to help create a 3-D printed image of Shafilea that would ensure that her memory would endure, refuting the dark intent behind her murder to erase her existence. On July 14th the final 3-D printed image was revealed to the public, and the reveal generated widespread publicity for Karma Nirvana’s work and the Day of Memory. Since this campaign began, the group’s impact has increased dramatically, and given hope to many people at risk.

Rather than taking a traditional PSA route and trying to address the victims of this sexual assault, or shaming the perpetrators, the agency focused on speaking to bystanders. The resulting PSA puts the viewer in the uncomfortable position of watching a man at a bar slip something into a woman’s drink, and encourages you to take action if you see behavior like this. The gut-wrenching film was a component of a larger activation campaign, which spread the idea and message in print and social media across the world. #WhoWillYouHelp

In this context, it is considered taboo for women to show their faces on social media sites like Facebook or Instagram. Always wanted to rewrite these rules. In a country where public demonstrations are illegal, Always orchestrated the first “Saudi Women’s March”, an online campaign that let women participate by filming their steps towards the kind of world they want to inhabit, and then posting the footage of their feet marching on Always’ Facebook page. The campaign empowered Saudi women by giving them a platform to express themselves, and used the hashtag #MoveForTomor- row to encourage women to join the movement across multiple social media channels. 5000 Saudi women participated, and the campaign generated new followers for Always on social media and a large number of media impressions in a country where traditional channels are strictly regulated. Always also provided funding for three of the most inspiring marchers to help them achieve their goals as they #MoveForTomorrow. Always. Rewrite the Rules.

Their parents were then shown the dismal grades their kids received, without being told the subject matter of the tests. Once the parents realized the low scores on this report card were about the state of their own health, they realized the need to change their behavior. After a series of adorable confrontations between the parents and their concerned children, the film concludes by noting that “we often do not notice the state of our health, but our loved ones do. Send your loved ones a health report card today.” This widely shared film helped the AIA deliver a wake-up call to all Malaysians encouraging them to take better care of their own health.

Turning on his family’s Samsung Smart TV, he finds a chef who walks him through the painstaking process of baking a birthday cake from scratch, and then follows an interactive lesson that helps him design custom decorations for his party. When night rolls around the boy falls asleep after an exhausting day of preparation, only to be woken by his mother at night when his absent father joins the family by Skype through the Samsung Smart TV, and is delighted when his young son presents him with a birthday cake complete with candles and banners strung throughout the house. The gorgeous film is an elegant showcase demonstrating the countless benefits of a Samsung Smart TV. Connect with what you love the most. Smart TVs Samsung. Feel More Connected. Samsung Keeper Alert Leo Burnett / Jakarta Category: Interactive (Mobile App) Over 100 million Indonesians own more than one digital device. Samsung wanted to help people keep track of all of their devices, as it is incredibly common for people to accidentally misplace one of their phones. With this in mind, LB/Jakarta created the “Keeper Alert” app, a personalized app that lets you sync your devices, so that if you happen to leave one behind somewhere, the other devices vibrate and deliver an alert notifying you that you’ve forgotten something important.

Unwilling to obey the restrictive dogma of a thousands of conformist screens demanding that viewers “subscribe,” this one single TV breaks ranks and flees in search of a place of his own. This lone Freeview TV eventually finds a happy home amongst curious people who have been looking for programming that doesn’t demand that a subscription. Stunning art direction and poignant sound design turn this spot into a sensorial feast, a triumph of film craft and storytelling that does a fantastic job of contrasting Freeview’s programming with competing subscription services.

Deep currents of mistrust have divided the country into competing camps, and the ongoing upheaval has made it difficult for Egyptians to find common ground. In this context, LB/Cairo launched a HumanKind act during the holy month of Ramadan which was intended to bring the country together. On behalf of Mobinil, Egypt’s largest Telco company, the agency launched an unbranded campaign called #AnonymousGiver, filling Egypt’s streets with free items intended to be shared with people in need. Toys for chil- dren appeared, along with free books on makeshift shelves for anyone in need, and food appeared in public refrigerators for anyone to claim. The only markings on these items was the hashtag “#AnonymousGiver,” and the public quickly adopted the campaign as its own, resulting in a wave of generosity as people contributed all sorts of things to their fellow citizens without asking for anything in return. Only after the campaign was widely embraced by the public did the agency reveal the brand behind it, and by then the good- will earned by Mobinil had made this one of the most beloved brand acts in Egypt.

The bank understood that the public needed more than just simple encouragement to begin investing; they also needed a primer on the Dow Jones Index, and an orientation that would make the com- plex world of financial investing more accessible and appealing to everyday people. Working with Leo Bur- nett in Bratislava, the agency mapped historical Dow Jones data points from 1895 to 2014 onto a timeline, and then used these linear charts as the basis for craft- ing an original music score that was created by a highly respected composer. Thus, the fluctuations of the finan- cial markets were transformed into music, which could be experienced online by any visitor to playdowjones. com. This astonishingly rich website is full of immersive visuals and compelling music that tells the story of the last 120 years, while tracking the impact of important events on the rise and fall of the Dow Jones Index. This gorgeous visualization of data was also projected onto building facades in Bratislava’s central square using 3-D mapping technology during a highly publicized event. The sheer size and scale of this spectacle received news coverage in Bratislava and the unique immersive quality of the website has led it to win awards in local and international shows. Rarely has investing been pre- sented in such a visceral and vivid way, accompanied with original music and potent imagery that captures the experience of investing in a constantly changing market. This brilliant campaign does a fantastic job of educating, informing, and teaching people about investing through captivating visuals and a unique attention-getting idea.

As part of the brand’s 100 year anniversary campaign, LB/ Melbourne shot a high energy TV spot filled with an assortment of dancers getting down to a clas- sic infectious INXS rock track. The total age of each group of dancers onscreen adds up to the number 100. For instance, a quartet of 25 year olds in Bonds socks and briefs moonwalk across a floor, followed by twenty 5-year olds in active wear, and then a smiling 99 year old man paired with a 1 year old toddler. Bonds = 100.

NSPCC Astronaut - Alfie Leo Burnett / London Category: Film This beautifully shot film juxtaposes a rich visual story of a joyful young child preparing for a mission in space with a haunting boy’s voiceover describing how his new stepfather has begun to beat both him and his mum. The contrast between the delight on the face of the aspiring astronaut and the heavy burden carried by the young boy resolves the voiceover notes that the NSPCC has helped his family to find a solution to their problem.”My name’s Alfie, and I’m an astronaut.” “When a child is free from abuse, they are free to dream again. We help to keep 1 million children a year free from abuse and neglect. Your donation can take a child anywhere.” NSPCC. Text Alfie to 70111 to donate 3 pounds. Every childhood is worth fighting for.”

The agency used the beautiful curves of the Sinhala characters as the design motifs central to the Shree brand. Elegant and gorgeous Shree visuals were then used to adorn clothing, purses, and other items, and the agency enabled potential buyers to customize their purchases with letters from the design palette they created. This gorgeous brand identity sets the Cotton Collection’s products apart from competitors.

Tasked with finding a way to celebrate and grow the brand’s success, LB/Hong Kong created a unique activation campaign called “20 Years of Opening Good Times with Calbee” that leverages the joy people have always felt opening a bag of Calbee snacks. The agency cooperated with express delivery companies to create oversized pack- aging bags for their shipments, so that when people finally got their hands on that long-awaited package they’ve been tracking, the delivery was wrapped to resemble a giant bag of Calbee snacks. This stunt and the corresponding online campaign components that document these deliveries per- fectly captures the joy and anticipation people feel when they crack open a bag of Calbee snacks. The campaign resulted in a large amount of free PR and media coverage.

The film overlays the audio of the iconic address over footage of workers removing the Leo Burnett logo from the agency’s office in Milan. Only at the conclusion of the speech does a slate appear noting, “don’t worry Leo, we just moved.” This announcement of the opening of LB/Milan’s new office space makes great use of one of Leo Burnett’s most memorable speeches, while highlighting the brand essence of our agency.

The agency collaborated with a master knot-maker to design the “loyalty knot,” which was then used to craft the visual identity and logo around this award. Beautifully executed and rich in symbolism, the “loyalty award” knot is a case study in smart thinking and exquisite craftsmanship.
