Chocolate candy brand Smarties by Nestle is working with eight children and eight artists to create work inspired by Smarties colours in Australia.

Children and artists join forces in Oz to launch ‘Smarties 8 colours of fun’

The ‘Smarties 8 colours of fun’ campaign has assigned a Smarties colour to each of the children  and paired them with a musician, sculptor, dance choreographer or photographer.

Angus Hennah, executive creative director at JWT Sydney, said, “We wanted to use Smarties colour to inspire parents and kids to be creative and above all, have fun,”

The colour blue will kick start the campaign featuring a child named Jonathan and musician Raymond Wassef. Together, they work on song lyrics about an underwater wonderland.

Their projects will unfold via YouTube and Facebook.

“The JWT campaign is another great example of how Nestlé brands can use digital to create a
richer and more engaging relationship with their target consumers. Digital is a great tool for
generating loyalty,” adds John Broome, head of marketing for Nestlé Confectionery & Snacks.
