Volkswagen BlueMotion: Donated Space

The Black Eagle has become the industry’s most coveted local print advertising accolade. On Friday we became the proud recipient of only the 6th Black Eagle ever to be awarded. The Eagle awards have been going since 2006 and were started by Independent Newspapers, in order to do something proactive to promote and develop exceptional print advertising in South Africa. They are now used as the benchmark for print advertising in SA.

See the work below and congratulations to the teams involved both at Ogilvy and Volkswagen:

It’s all about giving a little bit back. Eco-conscious BlueMotion technology

BlueMotion is Volkswagen’s more technologically advanced environmentally friendly range. For the print campaign, we asked our client to donate part of their very expensive advertising space to small, eco-focused non-profit organizations who really needed the exposure. The non-profits benefited from getting their message out there, and BlueMotion proved itself as a brand that doesn’t just talk, but takes action.

Marie Claire: A Tape Measure with a Difference

Marie Claire Ogivly Body Issue Ad

Ogilvy Marie Claire 2

According to statistics two out of three women are unhappy about their bodies and weight.

It was this alarming statistic that prompted Marie Claire to approach local advertising agencies with a challenge for their November Body Issue: create an ad that sells the idea to the Marie Claire woman that we are all beautiful no matter what shape we’re in. To do this, Ogilvy Cape Town decided to challenge the very thing that was causing women so much anxiety – size.

These days, so much emphasis is placed on x’s & l’s, cm’s & inches, kg’s & kilojoules that women are no longer able to see what is there – beautiful, healthy bodies.

We wanted to give women a new, more realistic way to measure themselves, a tape measure with a difference that would change the way we perceive our bodies and think about size. To replace the standard measurements, we instead added words to the tape measure such as Exquisite, Ravishing, Spectacular, and Gorgeous.
