  • Brands, companies and even individuals need to understand that in order to really raise your head above the parapit you MUST excel at strategic creative thinking combined with well thought out visual communications
  • Is there a magic bullet – it’s the same quality that we love about our favourite TV show or novel or piece of art, it’s what makes us weep or laugh out loud at movies
  • It’s what it’s the people we are attracted to, we like and even admire the most
  • What this does is it tells YOUR audience that they are in GOOD HANDS – it may not be a pleasant journeyBut what they know is that it will talk to the tema, it will make them think, it might even make them start a debate and change the world. It may even be hard to journey down BUT that confidence connection will ensure that YOUR audience knows it’s the journey YOU want them to travel

  • How can an Ad campaign raising awareness about a real issue help contribute to a dialogue which resulted in Saudi Arabia’s government passing a law to make domestic violence an offence punishable by law?This campaign created byMemac Ogilvy to bring global attention to the King Khalid Foundation’s efforts to raise awareness of domestic violence in Saudi.
  • What we discovered whilst doing a Google search for women is that Google autocompleted revealing the widespread prevalence of sexism and discrimination against women. Based on searches dated 9 March, 2013 the ads expose negative sentiments ranging from stereotyping as well as outright denial of women’s rights.“When we came across these searches, we were shocked by how negative they were and decided we had to do something with them,” says Christopher Hunt, Art Director of the creative team. The idea developed places the text of the Google searches over the mouths of women portraits, as if to silence their voices. “The ads are shocking because they show just how far we still have to go to achieve gender equality. They are a wake up call, and we hope that the message will travel far,” adds Kareem Shuhaibar, copy writer.For UN Women, the searches confirm the urgent need to continue making the case for women’s rights, empowerment and equality, a cause the organization is pursuing around the world. UN Women is heartened by the initial strong reaction to the ads and hopes they will spark constructive dialogue globally.   - See more at: http://www.unwomen.org/en/news/stories/2013/10/women-should-ads#sthash.A6JXwn4j.dpuf

  • the latest Johnnie Walker campaign in Lebanon ticks all the right boxes – it’s aA great example of how a brand can produce content and go completely viral. Today, (almost) all marketers (and therefore advertisers) are seeking to leverage and intensify the reach of their communications by creating ads that become viral even though the viral potential of a campaign is fairly rare.In fact 4 ingredients are necessary for an ad to become viral:- sThe awareness index which is a measure of the engagement potential of a campaign and its connection to the brand-The buzz which identifies wether an advertisement or a communication campaign is likely to naturally spread or not- The potential of the featured celebrity and his profile when used in advertising- The distinction of the campaign and the measure of its originalityActually, the thing that is great about this campaign is that it generates a great deal of emotions (the music is really great) and raises interest by touching a large audience. Architect Bernard Khoury clearly gives scope and carries the brand message.The campaign is integrated into many media a part from traditional TV/and press. The website is actually very well conceived since it delivers branded content from one part (videos telling the great stories of Bernard Khoury) and “social” functionalities from another (integration to Twitter and Facebook) to disseminate this content.  The campaign also calls upon user’s imagination in the creation of small sentences in order to “Keep Lebanon Walking”. Snackable - Unique - And Delightful -

  • Imagine a world where beauty is a source of confidence NOT anxietyAll us ladies out there know that women are our own worse critics – Only 4% of women consider themselves beautiful. Dove is committed to building positive change and self esteemJust one month after its release, Dove's "Real Beauty Sketches" has garnered more than 114 million total views, making it the most viral ad video of all time. (See video below.)The short film used an FBI-trained sketch artist to draw women first based on their own self-perception and then based on that of a stranger. The stranger's descriptions were regularly more stereotypically attractive and similar to what the subjects actually looked like — hammering in Dove's point that women are often overly critical of their appearances and don't see their true beauty.In spite of some criticism, the video's self-esteem boosting message clearly resonated with a massive audience. It was uploaded in 25 different languages to 33 of Dove's YouTube channels and has been viewed in more than 110 countries.But how did it reach that extreme level of virality?EmotionsOf course the simplest answer is that it elicited a strong emotional response from viewers.Read more: http://www.businessinsider.com/how-doves-real-beauty-sketches-became-the-most-viral-ad-video-of-all-time-2013-5#ixzz2jwIYbLHw

  • The K-Lynn Pledge encourages the women of the UAE to get regular check-ups and screenings where necessary; taking care of themselves and their bodies.Early mammogram screenings are an important tool in detecting breast cancer and something which women should include as part of their lifestyle routine. The average age of Emirati women diagnosed with breast cancer is between 40-45, some 10 years younger than in Europe, according to local experts.Of the over 400 K-Lynn Pledges from 2011, one woman shared her experience of taking action and looking after herself –with positive and dramatic results: “Thank you so much. The K-Lynn Pledge finally got me to have a much put-off checkup. A lump was discovered and I am now in the process of having it removed. Because of K-Lynn it was discovered early enough.”K-Lynn has partnered with Pink Caravan on this initiative, and every woman that ‘Takes the K-Lynn Pledge’ during October will receive a voucher that can be exchanged for a free clinical breast examination during the month of October and if a mammogram is recommended, can be redeemed at a fee of just Dhs100. Pledge participants can visit facebook.com/ThePinkCaravan or facebook.com/klynn.co to consult the Check Up calendar to select their preferred clinic location and date for attendance during October.

    19. 19. Of the region, by the region, for the region • For thousands of years, the Middle East has been the cradle of civilization. From the alphabet to codifying law, the Middle East has led the world in philosophy, science, astrology and so on. • The rest of the world considers the Middle East somewhat differently, though. Setting aside some of the more vitriolic views of the region, many fail to understand the complexities of a region rapidly ascending to the summit of the world‟s most powerful economies.
