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.

Raluca vs Hollywood Multiplex

On a Sunday morning, the Hollywood Multiplex (HM) cinema “woke up” in the midst of a crisis. This occurred because Raluca Zdrobiș, a single mother as well as a blogger, stated that an employee of the cinema refused to sell her the Family package of tickets and called her and her kids “not a real family”. In 24 hours, her article is the most popular in the blogosphere, with an estimated reach of 350,000 persons (including influencers), who blame the brand and demand explanations.

The Entrepreneurship Museum

In 2017, CITR Group understood that saving the companies from bankruptcy and restoring them into the economic circuit is not enough. They had to address the stigma that entrepreneurs are facing when confronted with difficulties. We launched a corporate communication platform called “Second Chance”, in order to generate empathy towards entrepreneurs in distress and promote the Group’s expertise.

Replate waste

Food waste is something people have been living with for a long time. Most might have overlooked it, though. The idea of the “Replate Waste” campaign was assembling a digital mechanism that transformed a general “infamous” individual deed (generating food waste basically almost every time you eat) into the inspiration for a creative process and, ultimately, a good deed. We turned to digital to make people part of a change: awareness on a global issue, on one hand, and support for a social cause, on the other.

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 science of caring

Romania is facing a social crisis, with steadily decreasing natality, demographic decline, and an unwanted top ranking in infant mortality and abortions across the EU. In 2018, Philips Avent, market leader in products for baby and toddlers, needed to tap into new opportunities to secure its decade-long leadership and further increase its share on a shrinking market. Graffiti PR created a brand campaign that regained followers, advocates and consumers by confronting Romanians’ cultural stereotypes regarding parenting.

Put Responsibility Into the Light

In 2017, Raiffeisen Bank conducted an „inside out” research process to identify its strengths and weekness’, seeking to uncover existing truths about the bank which could be amplified. Most of the employees and its clients perceived the bank as an organization where `you do things properly`. Following these findings, Raiffeisen Bank decided to shift its brand signature from „We Succeed Together” to „Proper Banking” and to launch a national debate about responsibility: of individuals, of brands and, ultimately, of society as a whole.

UberGREEN Launch

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.

GDPReady!

GDPR got almost everybody scared, as it brought up a lot of new & sensitive information that needed to be 100% in place in a clear, non-negotiable deadline: 25th OF MAY. For a company like Coca-Cola HBC Romania, with over 1600 employees around the country and multiple internal processes involving direct-work with personal data, the consequences in case of GDPR non-compliance could’ve seriously impact the overall business. So when everybody seemed to be already an expert on the subject, we’ve decided to start simple, with the basics, from the core of what represents us best: OUR PEOPLE, the gatekeepers of always doing what’s right, not necessarily what’s easier.

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.

#HMStyleMap

H&M, the fashion democratizer brand present in Romania since 2011, has always been a benchmark of style in matters of communication also.

Develop the first local campaign for the launch of the H&M summer collection. Our challenge? Make it BIG, whilst keeping it all online.

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.

After Us, It’s On Us To Collect

Young people are the faces of the future, but communicating with a young audience is never easy – especially when it’s summer and the only thing that’s on their minds is having fun. So we needed to speak their language, use their tools, get their heroes on board and, most importantly, take the battle on their turf. While some considered their age an issue when it comes to taking responsibility, we actually saw it as a great opportunity to grow their genuine activist mindset towards greater common causes, like the care for communities or for the environment.

The Helping Touch

More than 9,500 women in Romania are diagnosed with breast cancer every year, according to Globocan 2018. This means that every hour, one woman finds out she has breast cancer. Due to late diagnosis, a result of both poor preventive education and impaired access to screening programmes, about 8,000 women are subject to mastectomy every year. Apart from its physical implications, a mastectomy has a very high emotional impact.

On February 2017, MSD Romania, one of the most important pharmaceutical companies in our country and the producer of the anti-HPV vaccine, decided to launch an educational campaign on the topic of cervical cancer and other HPV related diseases. While the need for education on this topic was immediate, the subject was highly sensitive due to the one of the biggest immunization campaign failures in our country which was implemented in 2008 by the Health Ministry.
