Lindeman’s and J Walter Thompson Melbourne have released a new campaign through which they went on the hunt to discover what makes people smile, featuring universally relatable stories of friendship and positivity.
Celebrating Lindeman’s remarkable global popularity in over 100 countries, “The World Smiles with Lindeman’s” campaign was created by J. Walter Thompson’s Melbourne team and will launch globally from July 2016, across digital, still and video/TVC, in-store activation and limited edition bottles.
The campaign provides a snapshot of people from all walks of life, capturing candid interactions and the moments that make them smile.
“Lindeman’s has been making people smile for over 170 years,” said J. Walter Thompson’s Paulina Embart.
“And this campaign celebrates those little, everyday things that make us happy. Inevitably, it’s a real sense of social connection that lies at the heart of joyful moments.”
Lindeman’s global marketing manager, Tasha Harp, added, “This campaign is a modern interpretation of Lindeman’s positive philosophy, which was first expressed by founder Dr Henry Lindeman in 1843 and has been a consistent value of the brand ever since.
“Lindeman’s is available in 100 countries around the world, so we sought to capture just some of the locations and moments where Lindeman’s is enjoyed.”
The campaign was shot in four locations around the world – London, Stockholm, Guangzhou and Sydney – by internationally renowned photographer, Sophie Ebrard.
Ebrard took a journalistic approach to subject and story, scouring each location to uncover interesting stories from ‘real people’ who enjoy Lindeman’s and capturing these in her customary visual style, both on film and through still photography.
