Howatson+Company Unveils First-Up Festive Work For TK Maxx

Howatson+Company Unveils First-Up Festive Work For TK Maxx

Fresh from being named B&T’s Agency of the Year on Friday, Howatson+Company has completed its first work for TK Maxx, Australia’s leading off-price retailer. The new Christmas campaign and brand platform are now live in market.

The campaign will run across TV, cinema, radio, OOH and social, and the director’s cut here.

The film follows the story of an unlikely hero’s welcome. Not a celebration of Christmas or Santa Claus, but of Uncle Simon – the greatest gift giver ever, and of course a TK Maxx shopper.

Through the magic of TK Maxx’s ‘Big Brands at Small Prices’ the campaign shows how anyone can be the joy of Christmas this year for their family.

This is the first campaign out of Howatson+Company for TK Maxx after the agency began working with the retailer earlier this year. Howatson+Company has also supported the development of a new brand platform, ‘Abso-TK-lutely,’ which premieres in the campaign.

Jeremy Hogg and Richard Shaw, executive dreative firectors at Howatson+Company said, “This is an exciting first piece of work we’ve done with TK Maxx. It kicks off a new brand platform and tone of voice we can’t wait to help TK Maxx build upon. As for Christmas, we hope the public will like Simon as much as his family does!”

Tony Dunseath, VP marketing at TK Maxx Australia, added: “We believe the new ‘Abso-TK-lutely’ brand platform is both fresh and distinctive. It brings the emotion we want to help complement our promise of ‘Big Brands. Small Prices.’ And, who wouldn’t want a triumphant entrance like Simon’s on Christmas day?”

Network 10 Axes Gladiators

Alas, 10's Gladiators has gone as quickly as it came. Should make for a very wild garage sale, however.
