Tsingtao Beer | Drink Tsingtao, Understand China | China

Tsingtao Beer is adding meaning beyond simple enjoyment to drinking beer in a series of print advertisements for the Shanghai Expo 2010.

Ogilvy & Mather Shanghai has developed a series of print executions under the tagline ‘Drink Tsingtao, understand China’ to appeal to the international audience coming to visit the Expo.

The print designs introduce the common Chinese custom of penalising late-comers with three beers, the make-believe origin of the word ‘enjoyment’ and more.

For the local Chinese consumers, this campaign also aims to capture the attention of urban youths. The ‘quirky illustrations’ created by the Ogilvy team gives a more relax and friendly image to Tsingtao.

“Tsingtao has been a mainstay in the Chinese beer market for over a century,” said Karen Liu, vice general manager and brand director of sales and marketing center at Tsingtao Brewery. “So we have a deep understanding of Chinese drinking culture and are eager to introduce its appeal to an international audience.”

The campaign will run until mid-June and also air across English expat magazines, Western restaurants and subway stations.

Ogilvy & Mather China has received the Tsingtao Beer creative business in March 2010.
