The scenarios in the gaming-style video, including witnessing the shooting of a parent, are drawn from real-life testimonies of children in War Child’s projects across Africa and the Middle East.

Here Design: Thomas Dakin 'Packing and design'

Brand: Thomas Dakin

Title: Packing and design

Agency: Here Design

Agency Website:

Published: July 2015

Short Rationale (optional): Here Design has created the identity and packaging for Thomas Dakin Gin, a new juniper-led, classic-style, small batch gin with zesty notes of sweet orange and fresh citrus and enlivened by red cole (the traditional name for horseradish), used in the pioneer’s original gin recipe over 250 years ago.

The challenge was to develop an artisanal gin brand that leveraged the unique 250 year distilling heritage of Thomas Dakin, the forefather and pioneer of high quality, premium gin. We had to find the visual and verbal language that established Thomas Dakin as the true, no-nonsense pioneer of gin he was. Our task was to convey the very masculine, straight-talking nature of Thomas Dakin, contrasted with the effete connotations of much Southern-oriented gin drinking, whilst elevating the making processes and unique botanicals used in the 250 year old recipe.

Photographer: Andreas Bommert

Short Rationale: Research shows that if humans are suffering the effects of bad dog breath then their four-legged friends may be showing the first signs of periodontal disease, which affects 80% of dogs over three years old.

Affinity turned the negative of bad dog breath into a positive for owners who treat their pooch with Prozym Dental Sticks by capturing the fun moments when canines and humans show affection for each other with those awkward licks on the face, lips and even mouth. The tagline reads 'Fresh breath. As tested on humans'.

Award winning photographer Andreas Bommert captured three of those special up close and personal moments between owners and man’s best friend for the campaign.

Published: July 2015

Short Rationale: Avios, the global travel rewards currency, has launched an innovative, hyper-personalised brand campaign, ‘Do More with Avios’, created by 101, and developed by a number of agencies including Carat, Holler, Lexis, iProspect, MBA, rehabstudio, Soul, Hall & Partners and SoHalo.

The three month campaign will see the brand enlist the help of customers’ friends and family to urge collectors to spend their Avios on doing things together, whether for flights, great days out or trying new experiences.

By visiting loved ones can send ‘nudge’ messages direct to nominated Avios customers, with ideas for how they can use their Avios to do more together. Avios collectors will then see these light hearted, personalised messages displayed in banner spaces online as they browse the web; these could be anything from a mum persuading her daughter to use her Avios for a spa trip together or a someone suggesting a romantic trip to Paris using their partner’s Avios.

As well as online, ‘nudge’ messages will also be seen in press and outdoor. The campaign will be supported with social activation and experiential activity. The microsite was created by digital creative agency rehabstudio.

Supreme: Dft – Maritime Coastguard Agency (HMCG) 'To Save'

Brand: Dft – Maritime Coastguard Agency (HMCG)

Title(s): To Save

Agency: Supreme

Agency website:

Creative Director: Justin Barrow

DoP: Justin Glynn

Published: 2015

Short Rationale: service and aims to drive awareness that, in an emergency on the coast or at sea, the Coastguard will always respond.

The film ’To Save’ starts as the casualty regains conciseness, with this distressed audio and all-encompassing frantic scene. We don’t know how they got there and we don’t why - all we know is that the trouble is real, which the visuals echo. The chilling realisation that we are viewing a terrifying incident first hand engages the viewer and human nature makes them hold on for the outcome. The visuals show the scene on a relatively still but dramatic day.

This juxtaposition provides the chilling realisation that it doesn’t need to be fierce for people to get into trouble. The outcome transpires as the Coastguard comes into view and saves the casualty. The film concludes with the understanding of that they are safe, promoting the effectiveness of the Coastguard and creating a desire to be part of this brave unit.

The film is designed to stop, engage and recruit.

Bluemarlin: Batiste 'Packaging Refresh'

Brand: Batiste

Title: Packaging Refresh

Agency: Bluemarlin

Agency Website:

Published: July 2015

Short Rationale (optional): International brand design agency bluemarlin has created a new visual identity for Batiste, the UK’s #1 dry shampoo brand. The reinvigorated identity guides the visual expression for all of Batiste’s product pillars as they evolve their range of dry shampoos and extend the brand into styling products. The brief was to create a design that captured Batiste’s mission to empower consumers to take better care of their hair and feel instantly transformed.

The resulting design is stylish, full of impact and truly reflective of the brand’s quirky and confident personality. The updated design takes Batiste’s distinctive patterns to the next level by adding an element of discovery, provoking loyal and new consumers alike to take a second look. Cherries reveal themselves to be bold red lips. Pink flamingos become Martini glasses while lotus flowers bloom into swans. This cheeky design convention unites the range as each variant playfully offers a different visual game. Batiste’s new styling range also has discovery elements layered within the colourful and lively tendrils of hair.

A lion roars at his tamer on the Smooth It Frizz Tamer and hot air balloons rise on the Oomph My Locks XXL Volume Spray. Sassy yet sophisticated, the new range fits within Batiste’s product portfolio perfectly and succeeds in communicating the brand’s message of providing instant style transformation. The brandmark has also been boldly re-crafted with a capital 'B'.

Producers: Jemma Cassey, Jeannine Mansell, Tara Watney

Published: July 2015

Short Rationale (optional): Launching on Monday 3 August 2015, 10 projects which have received National Lottery funding will be showcased in a series of highly-targeted national and regional adverts, exclusively broadcast on ITV and tailored to fit with relevant programming. A second partnership with Global – launching on the same day – will also see National Lottery projects celebrated on a super-local level across Heart’s 22 stations and Capital’s 10 regional stations.

The deal is the first of its kind for Camelot, who worked closely with the National Lottery Promotions Unit to bring the partnerships to life. The new collaboration allowed commercial producer ITN Productions to hand select the projects featured in the ads, ensuring that the campaign would play out alongside ITV programming genres that complement the individual projects being celebrated in each execution. ITN Productions produced all campaign films in-house, ensuring synergy with ITV’s ongoing programme output, to gain greater cut through with viewers.

The stories will fit into ITV themes covering drama, youth, factual, entertainment and sport and launch with a bespoke 90” spot on 3 August, under ITV’s ‘Proud to Present’ banner, using ITV’s regional infrastructure so that each story can be localised for 11 different regions. Full-length 90” versions of each film will also be available on ITV Player.
