The campaign spans television, cinema, radio, outdoor, digital and social and uses inspirational images and messages to inspire the audience to strive for something better.

Evocca College is Australia’s leading RTO with 27 Colleges across Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria and with 12 more opening before the end of 2014.

Engine’s challenge was to develop a branding campaign that demonstrated that Evocca was a leader for vocational education in Australia while capturing Evocca’s unique difference.

Engine Group, Managing Director, Tim Weger said that upon visiting an Evocca College branch you will quickly realise how unique their approach to education is.

“Evocca has an amazing culture and approach to education and each individual that comes into a College is inspired to better themselves and transform through education.   We had to capture this inspiration into a 30 second TVC and in a billboard, Mr Weger said.

Creative team Kory McAvoy and Merrin McCormick took on this challenge and have developed this category defining campaign.

Creative Director Kory McAvoy said we really wanted to be different in the educational marketplace and set about creating moments of inspiration in cluttered environments.

“We wanted to create an opportunity to collaborate with our production partners as we brought the campaign to life in two phases,” Ms McAvoy said.

“The TV commercials in the first phase capture ‘launch’ moments to communicate the exhilaration you feel when you see things from a new perspective and suddenly see a new world of possibility. Evocca believes that anyone can transform their lives through education, so our goal was to use simple and beautiful words and imagery to impart this message to our audience,”

“In the second phase of our campaign, we emphasised the role Evocca College can play in supporting a student’s transformation with a focus on Evocca’s unique approach to education” Kory said.

Merrin McCormick said the audience needed a delicate approach to acknowledge that fear and self-doubt are barriers to participating in further education, while still planting the seed for change and opening the audience’s minds.

“Extensive market research and student research across Australia led us to recognise ‘fear’ as our major enemy, Ms McCormick said.

“It was our job to inspire people to put their fears behind them and reconsider what might be possible,”

“We were incredibly fortunate to work with Israel Rivera (Taxi) for our TV and print executions, and Davros (Cartel) to tell the genuinely inspiring stories of Evocca students through a series of online videos” Merrin said.

In addition to the above the line campaign elements a suite of inspirational videos were developed to support Evocca’s digital and social presence.
