Imaginations Collide In The Latest University Of Melbourne Campaign

Imaginations Collide In The Latest University Of Melbourne Campaign

THIS



‘When great minds collide, giant leaps are made’, That is the premise of the University of Melbourne’s new brand campaign via McCann Melbourne.

Led by a 60-second brand ad, the campaign is designed to inspire the best and brightest minds with a metaphor for when creative ideas meet collaboration and robust research. The spot was filmed on campus and using the University’s own students, teachers, academics and executives, including from the Victorian College of the Arts.

The campaign aims to raise community awareness of the University’s significant research achievements and share the stories of how people are benefiting from these research projects every day, in Australia and around the globe.

The campaign will include social and digital media, cinema, television, print advertising, outdoor and a content partnership with The Guardian. McCann also managed the media strategy for the campaign as part of the agency’s integrated creative and media offering.

Pat Baron, executive creative director of McCann Melbourne, said: “This campaign acknowledges that contributions that impact us all aren’t for the most part created by individuals working alone in dark spaces, but through the bright minds and their imaginations colliding and collaborating. A little bit like advertising agencies.”

Lara McKay, executive cirector, marketing & communications at the University of Melbourne, added:  “The ‘Collision’ campaign is absolutely a celebration of the people at the University of Melbourne. Having almost 100 students, academics, professional staff and members of our alumni community feature in the film demonstrates this idea of collision at work.

“We believe the campaign really is something very different for the category and hope it will connect with people and drive them to learn more about the work of the University of Melbourne.”

This is the first major work for the University by McCann since winning the business in a competitive pitch at the beginning of 2015.
