DDB Melbourne has created multi-million dollar global campaign for wine brand Lindeman’s.
‘It’s the sunshine that makes it’ campaign portrays the 170-year-old brand as the perfect partner to great moments with family and friends.
It shows people dining alfresco, sitting at the beach and going about day-to-day life while constantly shuffling into the sunshine, as if we the sun has a pull that keeps us in the light without needing to move a muscle.
Using stop-motion, the film is a departure from typical wine ads, often laden with images of vineyards, barrels and wine-glass swillers.
Darren Spiller, executive creative director, DDB Melbourne said: “The sun has always made us feel good; it’s a human truth. In this campaign we’ve used the sun a metaphor for how a brand like Lindeman’s can make you feel.”
The campaign includes a TVC (below), print, in-store and digital support. It launched in Sweden in September and is rolling out globally over the next 12 months.
