Mercado Magazine is a magazine that analyses political and economic information and helps people understand the reasons and consequences of the events that take place on our planet, and how these affect the business world. Under the concept of: “The world is a hard place to understand”, the campaign emerges from a universal truth and as from its executions, bases itself on current market issues.
“The largest trade partner of the European Union is now another country.”
“The world’s sixt large economy is another country.”
“The top weapon importer is now another country.”
This 3D outdoor medium is a monument that changes dramatically according to the angle it is viewed from. Demonstrating the more angles you have, the deeper the analysis of that reality will be. And the passerby lived that experience with a sculpture that made them wonder how hard it is to understand a world in permanent change.

This new initiative of Coca Cola -developed by Ogilvy Action- was launched during an event where over 500 people enjoyed the match Argentina vs. Colombia, all non-stop encouraging in order to keep watching the TV screen on.
With the unconditional support as the main feature of Argentine fans, created the first giant screen that works only with people’s breath for the parties of the national team. As the public speech during the meeting, a “Cheer-o-meter” connected to a giant screen, reflects the intensity of breath and regulates the visibility of the screen that broadcasts the game live. Thus, the more encouraged the fans, the more visibility you have and the less encouraging, the screen begins to fade.
The action was developed from the concept of “Always refresh your breath,” the message that the brand is pursuing various initiatives to be present along with the fans and encourage the selection.

A smart one, for Smart in Argentina. Using tweets as animation frames, and asking people to scroll down their Twitter page, Smart showed their car fits in every tiny space, even in a Twitter timeline. You can check the video…
To launch Smart Argentina’s Twitter account, @smartArg, BBDO Argentina created what it bills as the first “Twitter commercial.”
Visitors to Smart Argentina’s Twitter page can scroll in Chrome using the J and K buttons to see a cute animation of a smart car traveling through the city as passersby cheer on. Of course, each frame was made out of 140 characters or less.
The brief ad, created by BBDO Argentina to launch the Smart Twitter feed, uses “animated” frames as tweets to create a flipbook effect. The famed “city car” is shown traveling down a bustling street, like notes plunked down on top of sheet music. This Smart car passes many other (bigger) vehicles, and lots of buildings (which appear to be smiling), before handily docking in a parking garage.
Bonus interactivity points: If you actually visit the Smart Twitter page, you can basically recreate the ad, just by scrolling down.

We see the Titanic sailing over the dark waters of the Atlantic Ocean. In the crow’s nest there’s a watchman, personified by a Yellow chocolate Rocklets. Suddenly, he spots a huge iceberg and informs the other Rocklets who desperately trie to alert the Captain. As soon as he takes off to do so, a huge human hand takes it away and eats it. The Rocklet was never able to inform the ship that it is about to crash into an iceberg. Super: The beginning of the history of a Rocklets is very close to the end.

BGH in Argentina is promoting its new line of silent air conditioners with “Big Nose”, an integrated advertising campaign offering 25 percent discounts to people with big noses. The new line, with 5 stages of filtered air, was considered to be most helpful to people with big noses. The company worked with Del Campo Nazca Saatchi & Saatchi to create the nose-o-meter, an in-store device capable of measuring noses. If your nose touches the sensor, an alarm goes off and you win the discount. At bignosebgh.com online visitors can upload their profile picture, in order to find out if their nose has the chance to win. The site indicates where shoppers can find the nearest nose-o-meter and includes a gallery of noteworthy big noses.
The brand BGH wanted to launch its new line of Air Conditioners with 5 air filtering stages. In other words, the Air Conditioner units that provide the purest air of all. The objective was to generate a promotion which generated an answer of the target.
For the launch of BGH’s line of Air Conditioners we decided to help those who need pure air most: BIG NOSES.
That’s why if you had a Big Nose, BGH gave you a 25% discount. We created: The Nose-O-Meter. A device capable of measuring the length of a nose.
If your nose reached the sensor, the siren went off and you won the discount.
The Campaign was launched on TV, Web and Print. The communication directed the target to the retail stores where the Nose-O-Meters were installed. And there, the people could participate and make their discount effective.
At bignosebgh.com online visitors can upload their profile picture, in order to find out if their nose has the chance to win. The site indicates where shoppers can find the nearest nose-o-meter and includes a gallery of noteworthy big noses.

BGH Big Noses turned a boring Air Conditioners campaign into an entertaining promotion that combined brand experience, point of sale and discounts.
And of course its disruptive character put the campaign on everyone’s mouth.
- Thousands of noses were put to test
- 500 clients won 25% off.
- The PR amplified the media broadcast of the campaign as it transformed in the main theme of the most important media.
- And we had one of the most important sports celebrity for free. The famous NBA player Manu Ginobili tweeted about the campaign joking on the size of his nose and the discount he would win.
- The brand preference increased

In India, the word ‘Thanda’ has many meanings. It means ‘cool’, ‘cold’, as well as ‘refreshing’. Any refreshing drink, including soft drinks are also referred to as ‘thanda’. Guests are asked whether they would prefer coffee, tea or ‘thanda’ (something cool and refreshing). Therefore the headline in Hindi (the local language) means “Cool Means Coca-Cola”.

Coke Side of Life – COCA-COLA ART GALLERY
In 2006, Wieden+Kennedy Amsterdam has commissioned artists and collectives from around the world to create experimental work for the global “The Coke Side of Life” campaign. The result is a range of original artworks by emerging image-makers as different as Catalina Estrada, Geneviève Gauckler or the Peepshow Collective, … many of whom have gone on to make strong impacts in today’s graphic design & art scene.
The ‘Coca-Cola’ Art Gallery is a collection of images that has been designed by leading artists and designers. They have all depicted their own interpretation of ‘The Coke Side of Life’ philosophy.
The work of the artists reflects various styles, personalities and cultures, and all designs have one thing in common: they are colourful explosions of energy, optimism and happiness.
Throughout its 120-year history, advertising and communication has played a vital role in shaping ‘Coca-Cola’ into an iconic, cultural and timeless brand. Over the years, ‘Coca-Cola’ has continually challenged artists and agencies to create innovative refreshing images.
The diverse backgrounds of the contributing artists and designers, has resulted in a range of images that reflect different cultures and societies. By combining the iconic original glass bottle image with up-to-date illustration techniques and styles, the artists have given rise to a progressive style of visual expression.
‘Coca-Cola’ has always had a strong artistic heritage having been famously interpreted by artists such as Haddon Sundblom, Norman Rockwell and Andy Warhol who have all reflected the social and cultural attitudes of the time.

Coca-Cola - CREATED IN 1886
After years of cool marketing campaigns revolving around football, music and latterly computer gaming, the world’s most famous brand is going back to basics. Coca-Cola has been communicating about its product, what’s in it “Nothing artificial. Never had been, never will be” and the product heritage, dating back to 1886 when John Pemberton created his secret formula.
