Chinese luxury brand Goldlion targets successful, fashion-conscious men in a new campaign promoting its fall/winter collection across Greater China. The 'Knowing' ('懂得') campaign, by TBWA Hong Kong, includes outdoor, in-store and digital elements. According to the brand, the target consumers not only invest in luxury goods, but also want to be seen as leaders of a sophisticated lifestyle movement who are 'in the know' about enjoying life. Which leads us to wonder why the plasticised models look so very serious while they enjoy their obviously sophisticated life of motorcycles and small aircraft. Perhaps some of the other 24 visuals in the campaign will show them cracking smiles?

The company reports that the banner has reached 15,861 internet users during a three-day campaign, and that the average interaction rate was 51.8 per cent—19.5 times more than the average rich media ad and 272 times more than a standard banner. Users spent an average of two minutes and 14 seconds interacting with the banner, according to the agency.
A print and digital campaign for Jack Daniels' Tennessee Honey variant by Arnold Furnace features what appears to be a swarm of bees, but on closer inspection proves to be a swarm of festive people. The agency chose the 'Draws a crowd' theme because an approach that worked well in the US and other markets ('A little bit of honey, a whole lot of Jack') did not resonate well in Australia. The agency reports that even Jack Daniels himself is hidden among the buzzing partygoers.
