Penfolds has revealed a new global communications campaign, created in partnership with 11-time Emmy nominated Director Patrick Clair and Wunderman Thompson Australia.
Clair’s famed directive style brings to life the emotive sentiment of the new Penfolds ‘Meet Extraordinary’ brand platform by injecting poetic imagery with rich symbolism to create meaningful and arresting content.
This is the first global TVC Penfolds has produced in years and showcases a series of personal and historic moments that embody pushing through ordinary, to meet extraordinary. Leading the global rollout is a new 30” TVC that will be supported in all markets around the world.
Wunderman Thompson Australia global business director Paulina Embart reflected on the new campaign: “The new global brand platform was born of unearthing the truths hidden in the incredibly storied history of the Penfolds brand. One filled with innovation, creation and relevant truths to today’s consumer. Taking the core DNA strand of self-belief that lives within the 176-year-old brand led us to a repositioning and new brand idea.”
Penfolds global marketing director Kristy Keyte said: “We are excited to launch Penfolds new Meet Extraordinary communications platform to the world. We hope this platform connects to the deep emotional values of our consumers around the world, to feel empowered to put into effect the strength of their own convictions. Because if you never push beyond ordinary, you never meet extraordinary.”
Penfolds new Masterbrand campaign will go-live across all media platforms including TVC OOH, Print, Digital, Social plus in-store from September 2020 in Australia and from October in all other key markets.
Clair recently received a nomination for the 2020 Emmy Awards, for “Outstanding Main Title Design” for Westworld.
