WCRS: Women’s Aid 'Digital out of home campaign'

Title(s): Digital out of home campaign

Agency: WCRS

Agency website:

Creative Director: Ross Neil

Creative Technology: Dino Burbidge

Creatives: Mike Whiteside, Ben Robinson

Additional Credits: Account Handling: Torie Wilkinson and Katherine Morris

Planning: Stuart Williams

Photography: Rankin

Media: Ocean Outdoor

Posthouse: Smoke & Mirrors

Published: March 2015

Short Rationale: WCRS, Women’s Aid and Ocean have collaborated to create an interactive ad which shows how we can all make tangible changes in the fight against domestic violence.

Timed to coincide with International Women’s Day on Sunday 8 March, the engagement-activated screen raises awareness of how domestic violence charity Women’s Aid saves lives.

Premiering at Canary Wharf on 5 March, the campaign – created by leading London advertising agency WCRS – is a world-first as this is the first time the attention of people looking at the digital screens triggers an immediate change in the creative. The campaign will also be displayed at other Ocean locations in the UK.

WCRS worked with famed photographer Rankin, a long-time supporter of Women’s Aid, and media owner Ocean to develop the screen creative, which shows the image of a bruised woman with the simple imperative, ‘Look at me’.

The creative employs a unique use of facial recognition technology which allows the interactive screens to recognise when people actively pay attention to an image of a bruised woman. Those who look at the screen get feedback via a live video feed that runs along the bottom of the ad as a visual ticker-tape, registering an increasing number of viewers.

As more people notice the image of the women her bruises slowly heal, demonstrating to passers-by that by taking notice they can help confront domestic violence by not turning a blind eye.

Lida: National Trust 'Inside Out'

Brand: National Trust

Title(s): Inside Out

Agency: Lida

Agency website:

Art Director: Paul Skeffington

Copywriter: John Warwick

Additional Credits: Planner: Emma Hargreaves

Designer: Amy Fry

Published: March 2015

Short Rationale: The National Trust is launching a POS campaign, created by digital and direct marketing agency LIDA, to attract new members to ‘Get to know 500 special places inside out.’ The work, which is set to go live on 1st March 2015, will be rolled out across all National Trust places in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The creative proposition – which is consistent across all executions – demonstrates the value a person would get from National Trust membership. Both in terms of the sheer volume of access, through to special places it provides, as well as the genuine affinity members can build with such places.

Aiming to inspire and encourage people to become members of the National Trust, the visual technique of splitting the image into halves – Inside and Out – is designed to create intrigue and engagement at point of sale.

Comic Relief/British Airways: Comic Relief/British Airways 'Iconic British Airways ad gets a facelift for Red Nose Day 2015'

Brand: Comic Relief/British Airways

Title(s): Iconic British Airways ad gets a facelift for Red Nose Day 2015

Agency: Comic Relief/British Airways

Published: March 2015

Short Rationale: Strictly Come Dancing judge and former prima ballerina, Darcey Bussell helped British Airways give its famous 1989 ‘Face’ advert a special lift.

To celebrate this year’s Red Nose Day, Darcey expertly choreographed BA volunteers to form the 15-metre wide face, complete with the infamous wink and, for the first time, a red nose.

Travellers flying into Heathrow between 12 and 1pm on February 26 were able to catch a glimpse of the giant face as it was formed at the airline’s engineering base.

The advert – which has been voted one of the twentieth century’s most recognisable television commercials – lends itself perfectly to this year’s Red Nose Day theme - ‘Make Your Face Funny For Money’.

Copywriter: Hannah Drury

Designer: Tom Quayle

Additional Credits: Planner: Harry Pugsley

Producer: Kyson East

Production partner: B-Reel

Published: March 2015

Short Rationale: Honda has announced the launch of #RaceFace, a social and experiential campaign which enables Geneva Motor Show visitors to experience the speed of the new Honda Civic Type R and create their ultimate speed selfie. The initiative was created in collaboration with Lost Boys, part of the DigitasLBi family, and production partners B-Reel.

The initiative aims to create buzz around the launch of the new Honda Civic Type R at the Geneva Motor Show and to position the Honda brand as sporty, innovative and at the forefront of engineering.

Honda and Lost Boys have collaborated with B-Reel to create a special video booth, where members of the public are blasted with a gust of wind representative of the speed of the Honda Civic Type R.

B-Reel created the booth in a warehouse in Hackney before transporting it to Geneva. #RaceFace aims to recreate the experience of travelling at speed in the new Honda Civic Type R, by putting users into the fully immersive experience with sounds, lights and an intense blast of air. A commercial leaf blower, LED lighting rig, audio playback and video capture are all controlled using an Arduino.

The #RaceFace experience is filmed in super slow-motion and captured as a fascinating, hypnotic video which visitors can then share on their social channels.

#RaceFace will run throughout the Geneva Motor Show before being rolled out at a number of future Honda events and exhibitions.

Pocapoc: Scottish Huntington’s Association 'HD Routes'

Brand: Scottish Huntington’s Association

Title(s): HD Routes

Agency: Pocapoc

Agency website:

Creative Director: Sacha Mason

Graphic Illustrator: Zoe Green

Published: February 2015

Short Rationale: Scottish Huntington's Association (SHA) has created its new youth resource, designed by Pocapoc.

Unveiled last month, the project comprises an innovative resource to support young people affected by the degenerative brain disorder, Huntington's disease (HD) and increase awareness of the condition. The resource, which includes an offline resource and online flipbook, was developed by Scottish Huntington's Association Youth Project (SHAYP) and designed and produced by Pocapoc.

Entitled 'HD Routes', the resource aims to improve the lives of young people who live in families affected by HD. The new learning pack has been developed over the last 12 months by the team in close collaboration with the young people they support and has been funded by the Young Start Fund.

HD Routes uses games and fun activities to help young people learn more about HD and the challenges that living in an HD family will bring as they grow up. Although designed specifically for young people, it will also be a great resource for professionals and other adults looking for accurate information written in simple, easy to absorb language.

The new resource was launched by Acting Children and Young People's Minister, Fiona McLeod MSP and has been commended by the Children's Commissioner as an exemplar piece. Young people were involved at every stage in the design process and the resulting resource is a UK first as no other organisation has developed such specialised information about the condition specifically for young people.

Published: March 2015

Short Rationale (optional): Everybody knows that weather can be erratic. A tiny variation in temperature or atmospheric pressure can drastically change road conditions. Turning even an everyday commute into a stressful driving challenge where the simplest driving manoeuvres are complicated.

Michelin can’t predict the weather, but to promote its new CrossClimate Tyre the brand is giving people the keys to face unexpected road conditions whatever the sky throws at them.

Working with professional meteorologists to model the approach of weather fronts, Michelin has created an innovative webGL experience in which people can interact with a real-time weather layer to modify weather conditions in a stunning rendered urban landscape.

Bove’s work is being exhibited alongside that of Carlo Scarpa (1906-78) an Italian architect influenced by the materials and landscape of Venetian culture, who was also a notable glass and furniture designer. Sharing the same appreciation of materials, the artists’ work has been brought together in one new show.
