News.com.au’s general manager Julian Delany has announced the national online news source is launching a new campaign for the brand.
The biggest consumer marketing campaign ever for news.com.au rolls out from Sunday 31 May across digital, TV, radio, magazines, outdoor and cinema. It was created by Bohemia Group with The Glue Society and Revolver collaborating on the video production.
With news.com.au operating exclusively in the digital space the campaign reinforces what the site does – provides ‘The news in colour’. Positioning the brand around ‘colour’ enables news.com.au to illustrate its breadth of content, pace of delivery and different angles on the news that Australian consumers love.
Delany said: “We have done a lot of work over the last few years to evolve news.com.au and establish our role as a leading news source for Australians. While our branding has always been colourful, we’ve made a conscious effort in recent years to provide compelling news from all angles and bring colour to what we write. ‘The news in colour’ positioning helps capture all that we do.
“News.com.au provides an appropriate mix of current and succinct news within a news cycle that continues to accelerate. We don’t discriminate on what subjects are considered news. We get in behind news stories and wrap them in a way that makes them more digestible, relatable and engaging for our readers.
“There are times when we need to be serious, humorous or empathetic. There are also moments when we need to react to the news rhythm of the day or allow people to escape the grind of the day. There’s no doubt colour has shaped who we are and importantly what our readers expect from us.”
Bohemia Group founder and managing partner, Brett Dawson, said: “We have really enjoyed the opportunity to work alongside Julian and his team developing this campaign. The entire operation oozes colour, and in a competitive and crowded landscape we feel the positioning will really resonate with Australians and provide enduring relevant differentiation.
“The idea is so natural and strong that we managed to secure world class talent to develop it with the likes of Elliot Wheeler, Russell Boyd, The Glue Society and Revolver collaborating on the video production with everything else developed in house at Bohemia.”
