Look, a stork!

With this campaign, ENEL and SOR have managed a premiere at European level: the first mobile application dedicated to a citizen science project aiming at implementing a stork census. Enel showed deep involvement in the welfare of the community and environment protection as it contributed both to securing the stork nests placed on electric poles thus protecting the storks from the danger of electrocution and to insuring proper function of the electric grid. The initiative has rapidly found its enthusiasts, and in the month while the pilot project was implemented, more than 8.000 storks have been identified.

Technology of tomorrow

There is a famous saying in our office whenever we meet a hurdle in our day-to-day collaboration: “stop the pressure, we’ll find a solution, it’s not like we’re doing brain surgery”. This project gave us the possibility to actually say that yes, we, the PR team, are also “doing” brain surgery. Our challenge: how do we use technology to establish a national breakthrough in field of health/medicine? Our answer: Broadcast a brain surgery, live in 360-degree virtual reality.

H&M Summer Villa

In the midst of summer collection launches, the campaign had one purpose: to promote both regular and swimwear collections, and invite consumers to join H&M on a grand experience. The campaign had to tell a summer-long story that would strengthen H&M as a brand, drive traffic, conversion and purchase in online and physical stores. The right influencers had to be chosen in order to create engaging content and be relevant for both women and men.

I work at McDonald’s. I learn at McDonald’s

Working at McDonald’s is a never-ending source of communication opportunities. So, at the end of 2016 we turned to the employees – the greatest communication channel of them all. We managed the entire campaign from a transparent angle, and because people were curious, McDonald’s employees answered their curiosities. For the first time, employees have become the voice of McDonald’s – and they’re a strong voice, indeed.

McDonald’s suits me

The Romanian labour market has been facing multiple difficulties in the past few years in terms of employment, with the main affected industries being trade, tourism, retail and food service. There is a constant need for attracting new employees and, when it comes to McDonald’s, people are usually undecided whether to work with you or not. The mainstream opinion: „Working at McDonald’s is hard, exhausting and not very appealing”.

The Welcome Home Whopper

How do you stand out as a new player on a market that is already over-saturated? Especially if you have a history as a brand who left the same market a few years ago? How do you create a memorable experience with your new entrance, and convince people that your brand is worth the effort? You do what other brands do not do. You create content for those who are happy you’re here, not for yourself. You adapt to their needs and desires. By speaking their language and putting consumers first, what might have been just another brand launch managed to reach over 19M people, got over 200k online interactions, and gathered thousands of people in line at the Burger King restaurant every day, for more than a week after the opening. Here is how we managed to have a memorable launch and hit a sales record on the first day after the opening.

The first LIVE heart intervention with a hologram from Romania

How do you transform something you cannot see, hardly understand even by specialists, in a relevant communication topic for your brand? Even more, follow-up on a successful campaign, which clearly showed what technology could do in a surgery room? You go further and experience some more with technology. More precisely, create the most detailed 3D model of a heart from Romania, then a human size reproduction of a heart intervention by using an advanced automatic virtual environment system, and get the most detailed & fully digital representation of how a heart intervention is actually done.

The QLife behind the perfect image

Personal cars in Romania represent over 80% of passenger traffic and electric vehicles are still less than 1% of the total number of cars in Bucharest – there are still important limitations when it comes to the high costs of these cars as well as the fast charging infrastructure available – as a result, extremely few people have access to such cars. We saw that as an opportunity to launch Uber Green in Romania, a fully electric ridesharing service, first as a pilot that would then be developed in partnership with authorities and carmakers. Sharing the road to a greener future.

Get your YOU on!

Romania is a patriarchal country where men are anything but encouraged to be themselves. “You’re the tough sex, don’t cry, don’t share your feelings, get a “man” job, be tough, suck it up!” is a conversation in almost every family. The campaign idea: challenge these stereotypes and inspire Romanian men to be themselves through relatable stories.

Samsung voice to women creators

The cultural context for women is one of struggle, being surrounded by a lot of pressure. They are preached to with messages disguised as help – “lean forward”, “you can have it all”, “focus on one thing.” But these messages don’t empower women – they generalize what a woman should aspire to, thereby denying her the power to decide for herself.

Taking care of Romania

TASK/OPPORTUNITY & PLANNING
It was the beginning of 2017. We were all happy, proud, and excited to start talking about the important news that surrounded REWE Romania. But, before doing so, we had to be well-prepared. Our responsibility was huge: we were the first retailer in Romania receiving the certification ISO 50001. So, we needed a detailed plan that would include all our stakeholders.
