#TogetherForMagicHome

Each year, 500 new cases of childhood cancer are diagnosed in Romania. Another 5.000 children are already undergoing treatment. Unfortunately, pediatric cancers can only be treated in a handful of specialist clinics scattered throughout the country, often far from the children’s homes.

Life hangs by a thread of hair

One of the most affected patients in Romania are children suffering of cancer due to a poor health sector with no appropriate conditions for the little ones and with no involvement from authorities. The unfortunate consequence of this reality is that, in Romania, one of two children suffering of cancer is dying, while in Europe, 80% of those affected will eventually survive the disease.

Vocational Students League

Since 2015, Vocational Romania became the national platform used by OMV Petrom to advocate for a better vocational education (VET) in Romania. While advocating for change, we came to realize that VET PUPILS, the most significant recipients of the change, are a silent mass of youngsters that is neither consulted nor accounted. Lacking representativity, is hard for pupils to address decision makers and ask them to initiate VET improvement. Vocational Students League was born to act as a representative group for VET pupils, that will produce a systemic and relevant change for vocational education but also improve craftsmen reputation. We choose Buzau, as a pilot county, to test the approach but also to prove #itcanbedone.

Vocational Romania

Two years ago, OMV Petrom looked for a solution to address a three-fold issue: on one hand, the company had an ageing workforce, with lack of skilled craftsmen affecting long term performance. On the other hand, with operations in 300+ communities, the company needed to create job alternatives to prevent mono-industrialism.

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.

Gillette SkinGuard – Confessions and irritations

With more than 100 years legacy in continuously innovating and developing new razors for a comfortable shave, Gillette was about to introduce in Romania a totally new product that targeted men with highly sensitive skin during shaving.

In order to avoid confusion among consumers who have already been used with innovations around the precision blades, we set the main product benefit at the core of our launch campaign.

We put a price on plastic

The latest research discovered that there’s more microplastic 1000 feet down in the Pacific Ocean than there is in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Let’s zoom in – Romania, 2019. Only 14% of waste is recycled. Authorities are constantly changing the laws and passing on the responsibility, making it almost impossible for collectors to operate. Not recycled waste ends up in landfill, affecting clean waters, kid’s playgrounds, clean landfills for agriculture, beaches, even tap water.

The Crisis of the (Un)Happy Chicken

On March 21st a woman uploaded a picture on Facebook showing a discolored chicken from Agricola after putting it in saline marinade, accusing the brand that it uses artificial colorants to make the chicken look better. The Facebook post had been shared 27,000 times in 12 hours, sparking negative comments as many angry people said we are poisoning them with artificial chemicals. The crisis was over after 48 hours after it began by communicating to our Facebook fan base the official reports from authorities that didn’t find anything wrong with the chicken meat. It was perfectly fine!

Mastercard Vibes

Earlier this year, Mastercard debuted its sonic brand identity, a comprehensive sound architecture that is aiming to reshape the paying experience. To introduce their new MOGO – musical logo to the public, the brand chose Electric Castle, Romania’s most famous music festival. But Mastercard’s DNA is priceless for everybody, and not everybody is at a music festival. We’re talking about the deaf community. In Romania, they are usually overlooked and have a hard time finding public events they can attend.

As a leading technology company, Mastercard is dedicated to consistent efforts to facilitate digitalization in Romania and inclusion via wide access to modern payments for everyone.

factory by Raiffeisen Bank

In 2019, Raiffeisen Bank wanted to develop the program in order to make it more attractive to the entrepreneurial community, thus positioning the brand as one that supports the start-up community. However, communicating this program came with several challenges, such as low awareness among Romanian entrepreneurs, the fact that Romania was going through a period of political turmoil and fiscal changes, plus the general perception that it would be difficult to obtain financing for one`s business idea.

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.

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.

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.

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”.

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.

Performance has a future

On the night of September 4, 2017 Romania was losing against Montenegro and missed the qualification to the 2018 World Cup. Yet another failure, as the last time we qualified for a World Cup was with Hagi leading the way for us at the 1998 (!) Coupe du Monde in France.
So, Gillette decided to team up with the Romanian Football Federation not as a sponsor of the National Team, but more as a supporter of the future of football in Romania.

Taste the Joy of Home

The national imprint was more than a brand statement, it was a manifest for promoting family values, bringing people together and making them feel empowered when they are next to their dear ones. Who would have thought that family meals have real, tangible effects on children and adults personal development, that its benefits are more than reuniting with our family, or who was curious enough to rediscover traditions and understand the history of family meals, so that could create so many wonderful opportunities in the future?
