Australia Post has unveiled a new campaign that reflects what the company stands for in the community: putting people first.
Created by The Monkeys and entitled ‘Everyone Matters’, the integrated campaign is the first from Australia Post since Christine Holgate was appointed as new CEO.
Directed by Derin Seale of Finch, ‘Everyone Matters’ features five stories of everyday Australians and the many and varied ways Australia Post is a part of their lives.
The spots range from a honey producer in Tasmania, to a sugar cane farmer in Queensland, to Bruce from Braidwood, who has run his local post office for more than 20 years.
The print component of the campaign also features portraits of everyday Aussies captured around the country by photographer Cory White.
The campaign will roll out this week across broadcast, out-of-home advertising, digital, radio and press, and will also run on Australia Post social channels.
Australia Post’s head of enterprise marketing, Anne Stout, said: “This campaign illustrates what Australia Post does for our customers every single day: we focus on how everyone matters.
“The campaign centres on what drives us to make a difference in people’s lives; whether that’s making more flexible delivery choices or helping small businesses to expand into international markets, or being such an integral part of local communities that our delivery people would recognise, recover and deliver safely home a little boys’ stranded stuffed toy.”
Ant Keogh, chief creative officer at of The Monkeys, said: “We wanted to tell stories at a human scale, showing Australia Post’s role in the lives of all Australians, day to day. The films are humble and understated, but we think that’s where their power lies.”
