WWF – The world’s first green file format: the WWF





Insights, Strategy & the Idea
Every day, entire forests are cut down to make paper. Paper that’s senselessly used to print out documents all over the world: websites, emails, even entire reports instead of those few pages that are really needed and read. This happens in spite of the fact that it’s easy to avoid printing by saving the document as a PDF. But even PDFs can sometimes also be printed out. So to stop unnecessary printing and encourage a new awareness about the use of paper, we’ve developed the world’s first green file format: .wwf.
A format that can’t be printed out. A simple idea that saves trees. In Hamburg we invited german journalists to a big press conference. Hosted by german WWF chair president and the chair president of the agency. We attracted all big television channels and publishing houses. Not clever communication is our product. This is a clever product communication.
Creative Execution
The WWF Organisation is one of the most important environmental organizations in the world. For 50 years the WWF has pursued one goal: to rescue the rainforests. With this Partner we wanted to raise this important issue . That’s why we invented the world’s first green file format: The .wwf. A file format that simply cannot be printed out. We wanted to put an end to the unnecessary printing and start raising global awareness of the destruction it causes. The product is the message.
Results and Effectiveness
After just four weeks, the website had already welcomed 200,000 visitors from 183 countries, and the software had been downloaded over 30,000 times. On Facebook we’ve got over 10.000 friends.
Just a few days after the campaign was launched, the WWF was THE topic of conversation in the news, in tweets and on blogs across the world.

Wrigley’s Extra Polar Fresh – Mint Parking Ticket



The challenge was to distribute the fresh mint taste of wrigley’s extra polar fresh not only to the consumer, but also onto everyone’s lips. To successfully achieve our goal, wrigley made use of an everyday observation: when you drive into a parking lot, you haven’t got a free hand for your parking ticket, so you put it in your mouth. This gave wrigley the idea to create the world’s first flavoured parking ticket. Wrigley printed tickets with a very thin layer of mint and placed them in parking lots. when drivers put the ticket in their mouth, they experienced the fresh flavour of Wrigley’s Extra Polar Fresh gum. Drivers had the taste for more, and there was an increased sale of Wrigley’s Extra Polar Fresh in stores close to the parking lots. A test-run showed that this promotional idea was well received by consumers and fit for a nation-wide promotion.

SportScheck – Sporty Vouchers



Midway through the winter sports season, in January 2011, SPORTSCHECK Frankfurt asked for an impactful idea to drive sales of winter sports equipment and to remind Frankfurt citizens that snow can be great fun. Nobody likes scraping snow and ice off their cars every morning. How we can use this unpopular snow to show the bright side of winter?

With unique use of media, we transformed snow-covered cars into skid-marked ski slopes. Miniature snowboarders and skiers show the fun side of winter – and are also giving out discount vouchers for winter sports equipment from the new SPORTSCHECK store in Frankfurt. These appealing vouchers tell the story of great winter sport action on the roofs of people’s cars. They are as impactful as the SPORTSCHECK TV commercial, and convey the SPORTSCHECK message of “Wir machen Sport” (“We do sport”) in a simple, engaging way.

We distributed 2,500 vouchers in Frankfurt, of which 23.6 % were redeemed in store. This increased sales by up to 17.2%. The citizens of Frankfurt liked the idea and took pictures of it. These vouchers inspired our target audience to do more winter sports.

AlmapBBDO for Havaianas (2000/2011) – The most beautiful case history in the world

Few agencies are as consistently brilliant year after year as Marcello Serpa’s Sao Paulo shop, Almap BBDO, whether the job is to make a global brand like Volkwagen a local favorite, or take a local brand like Havaianas global. For the latter, the shop created happy ads in eye-popping colors that capture Brazil’s fun, sunny lifestyle in a flip-flop the Brazilians — and increasingly the rest of the world — will pay a premium for.

Brazilians love their Havaianas flip-flops. And every year, so do more consumers around the world. In a long marketing journey, Havaianas have transformed a commodity that was one step above going barefoot for Brazil’s poor to a chic brand bursting with colorful personality. It didn’t happen overnight. For 30 years, Havaianas came in one style and five colors said Carla Schmitzberger, sandals director at Sao Paulo-based Alpargatas, whose Havaianas brand accounts for about half the company’s sales. “Wealthier people wore them at home, but were emabarassed to wear a poor people’s shoe outside,” she said.

Sales declined for five years until 1993, when the compant started multiplying the colors and styles, and working with the fashion press, models and celebrities to get Havaianas on more upscale feet. That year, Marcello Serpa, as one of Brazil’s top creatives, joined Almap BBDO as a partner and creative director. Havaianas was his first account there, and he has been the mastermind for 17 years of its award-winning advertising in Brazil and now internationally.

Havaianas Slim – CRANK/PERFUME SPRAY/SHOE/TAXI/BANANA

It has been put together the fact that Havaianas was born in the age of 60’s and that the same age had as many colours as Havaianas does.
The brief was about Havaianas’ anniversary and in the ad, there should be not only a good ad talking about havaianas’ originality, but also the brand’s history. The ad was made based on 60’s drawings and the copywriting was based on Havaianas’ originality. The advertising became a great piece full of colors which has attracted the public who didn’t know how old the brand Havaianas was.

Havaianas – VISUAL IDENTITY


Describe the challenges and key objectives
The major diversity of pieces, including or not the places where they were published, has a unique image which valorizes the product and builds a colourful, fun, and simple universe that has become the brand’s owner.
Describe the brief from the client
The challenge was to create a new and big campaign, which would put all that Havaianas has got of the best products together, to cause a positive impression in its consumers.
Describe how you arrived at the final design
This is a set of jobs that were executed in the last 12 months to the brand Havaianas, which has resulted in this Design Case. They are executions in different ways and medias that were exposed in Europe, USA and especially in Brazil.
Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The success is proved by the high measure of relationship of the brand with its consumer, making the product be not only a rubber sandal to be a part of Havaianas. It’s a symbol of the Brazilian spirit, which is translated from Havaianas through its colourful, simplicity, optimism, happiness and good mood.

Havaianas Original – IPANEMA/BIKINI/BOSSA-NOVA


This poster was made exclusively to run outside of Brazil and it had two basic goals. The first and most important was to promote the Havaianas flip-flop “Original” model, which has remained the same since 1962. The second was to bring an authentic Brazilian spirit, which is the essence of the Havaianas brand, to the rest of the world.

Havaianas – HAVAIANAS REAL AD (SUMMER CAMPAIGN)


Describe the challenges and key objectives
How do you claim the summer in a new fresh way and create something that is both unexpected and also shares all of the brands values.
Describe the brief from the client
In summer time, Brazilians rush to the beach. Havaianas, Brazil’s favourite flip-flop, had never done anything specific for the summer and they wanted to claim the summer as the Havaianas season.
Describe how you arrived at the final design
On 6 of the most popular Brazilian beaches we set up, rising from the ground, gigantic, colourful installations that claimed the beach as Havaianas territory and summer as the spirit of Havaianas. From there it was simple, all we did was photograph the sculptures and our Havaianas always summer poster was done.
Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The response from beachgoers was immediate. Right away people started to interacted with the installations and the campaign spontaneously spread from the beach to social networks such as Twitter, blogs, flickr and youTube.

Havaianas – HAVAIANAS WORLD CUP


Describe the challenges and key objectives
We decided to approach this on a very basic level, football pride. We wanted people to feel proud supporting their national team with havaianas on their feet. But, how do you do that for 32 different teams, 32 different countries with different languages, different cultures and people?
Describe the brief from the client
2010 is World Cup year and as a product which lives on the feet of brazilians, Havaianas needed to participate in a big way. So, they created Havaianas Teams, a special edition flip-flop line, one for each participating country in the world cup, to be sold all around the world.
Describe how you arrived at the final design
After careful research understanding the symbols, colours, typography and cultural esthetics, we designed 32 individual posters, one for each world cup playing team, always using the havaianas flip-flop in the center. We worked the design to serve as a flag of national pride for each team always paying attention to make them equally powerful and meaningful to each country. After all the posters were ready we organised them according to the world cup, 1st round, matches with date and time to form a giant time table.
Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The Havaians Teams line was a great success. In Brazil they were sold-out in almost all Havaianas retailers and surprisingly people started to collect models from other countries. spreading the pride sentiment just in time for the 2010 world cup.

The Deli Garage – Parmesan Pencils

The 3 different types of parmesan cheese needed packaging, which is easy to handle at meals and also lists portioning suggestions as a bonus. With the built-in grating function you can sprinkle delicious, appetizing flakes of parmesan cheese on your meal.

Develop packaging for a trio of selected parmesan cheeses including a grater shaped like a pencil sharpener – an addition to the ‘The Deli Garage’ range, a food label that supports small manufacturers of delicacies with lovely packaging ideas.

The cheeses are shaped like oversized pencils, where the “leads” contain three different flavors: truffles, pesto and chilli. With the sharpener included, the required amount of cheese can be sprinkled on the dish. A scale on the pencils and on the back of the packaging doesn’t just simply list how much of the Cheese Pencil is needed for each dish, but even how many calories the portion contains.

Results: The limited first edition of 500 was sold out 2 weeks after the launch.
