Campaign: Fitchix: Now tracking the steps of our chooks
Brand: Honest Eggs Co.
Cannes Category: Innovation
Fresh idea that gives me more reason to choose my eggs wisely when I never thought to do so. Definitely a smart differentiator. Plus, technology that puts a smile on your face is always a good thing.
Cannes Category: Digital media
Brands spend a lot on search but it’s not easy to get creative with it. Hence this entry stood out for understanding audience behaviour to marry paid and earn media brilliantly. Definitely a standout for the digital media category.
Campaign: Phone It In
Cannes Category: Radio
As the world get its hands dirty with AI, simple, great ideas like the one above are often congratulated for keeping it basic and extremely accessible. And that is exactly what a low-cost brand is all about. Bravo on so many levels.
McCann's own pick:
Campaign: Take a sip of sweetness and enjoy the Belgian Spring
Cannes Category: Brand Experience
Brands are always remembered for great experiences and boldly flipping an extremely negative episode in our lives into a positive one will always be appreciated. A simple and meaningful toast to a new beginning.
