The Gunn Report has released Cases for Creativity 2014, a study that identifies the campaigns that have won both a Cannes Gold Lion for creativity and a 2014 Gold Effie for effectiveness.
Representing the high watermark of advertising achievement, 12 campaigns have accomplished such a feat in 2014 and show the ability for creativity in all its forms to drive extraordinary results. Traditional TVCs sit alongside PR stunts, technology experiments, and good old-fashioned consumer promotions.
Created by BBDO, BETC, Leo Burnett, Mayo Publicidad, McCann, Ogilvy & Mather, Saatchi & Saatchi and TBWA, the 12 campaigns hail from Argentina, Australia (x2), Brazil (x2), France, New Zealand (x2), Peru (x2), UAE and USA.
The Cases for Creativity 2014 are:
- “A Boy And His Atom” for IBM by Ogilvy & Mather, USA
- “Baby&Me” for Evian by BETC Paris, France
- “Bentley Burial” for Brazilian Association of Organ Transplants by Leo Burnett Tailor Made, Brazil
- “Catch a Million” for DB Breweries by Saatchi & Saatchi, New Zealand
- “Dumb Ways to Die” for Metro Trains Melbourne by McCann Melbourne, Australia
- “Happy ID for Coca-Cola” by McCann Erickson, Peru
- “Mistakes” for New Zealand Transport Agency by Clemenger BBDO Wellington, New Zealand
- “Potable Water Generator” for Universidad de Ingeniería y Tecnología by Mayo Publicidad, Peru
- “Share A Coke” for Coca-Cola by Ogilvy & Mather Sydney, Australia
- “The 1000 Miles of Luca” for Consejo Publicitario Argentino by TBWA, Argentina
- “The Autocomplete Truth” for UN Women by Memac Ogilvy – DXB, United Arab Emirates
- “The Unlaunch of the Volkswagen Kombi” for Volkswagen by Almap BBDO, Brazil
Author of the study, James Hurman, founder of the Auckland based innovation consultancy, Previously Unavailable, says, “Effectiveness continues to defy media categorisation, but the one thing this diverse group of ideas have in common is that people saw fit to share them; and only the most engaging creative ideas executed by the most talented people will be shared.”
