The Top Six

Toyota 4Runner Wilderness Therapy
RAPP Los Angeles

We needed to speak to a broad audience of existing Toyota 4Runner owners, handraisers who had expressed interest in the vehicle, and the adventurous at heart who hold a deep affinity and respect for the wild, as well as an itch to explore it. Toyota needed to reach an annual sales goal of 110K and increase market share to 5.3%. Read More

Buscapé Black Friday Live

Buscapé is the largest website and app to compare prices of products and services in Latin America. The target audience was all consumers, all genders, ABC classes, 18+, connected to the internet. The strategic objective was to go further than price comparison in the most relevant sales date of the year: increase the reach to all consumers, obtain a remarkable number of sales and prove that Buscape’s Black Friday has really true offers.

Click Banco de Varejo Itau A Great Behavior Change
RAPP Brazil

Itau is the largest Brazilian Bank right now. To solve their most common questions, its 35,000 contributors generated 750,000 calls per month at 29 Call Centers.

Inmarsat Aviation: Bring it On
OgilvyOne Business

Inmarsat needed to sell GX Aviation airline passenger broadband directly for the first time to airlines, to avoid intermediaries eroding profit margin. We faced two problems. Inmarsat had little awareness or credibility in the sector. And Inmarsat was faced with the challenge of engaging an audience it didn’t understand. Customer insight was needed to drive a high-impact marketing strategy to 1) Create awareness, 2) Engage and educate decision-makers, and 3) Drive sales. Read More

The Doll That Chose to Drive
Proximity Barcelona

Traditionally, the automobile industry has been a man’s world. In the collective imagination, men are the drivers, and women are simply passengers along for the ride. The Audi brand promotes and implements a socially egalitarian model, but this had never been explicitly communicated. This campaign was intended to ignite a conversation about the role of women in the automotive world and overturn the stereotypes. Read More
