The Most Creative Campaigns, Brands
and Agencies in Transport & Tourism

 
NON-TRADITIONAL MEDIA DOMINATED THE TOP FIVE AS BRANDS EMBARKED ON JOURNEYS OF INNOVATION.

Whether it was an adult-only website, a navigation app or even a ticket spiced with cannabis, travel and tourism brands favoured alternate media to get their message across. Even a more traditional film, by SS+K for Iceland, succeeded by taking satirical digs at the metaverse delivered by an off-beat ambassador. It’s notable that the pandemic – which of course had a disastrous impact on the tourism industry – seems to have faded into the past as a subject.

Story Vienna is home to some of the world’s most iconic artworks. 100 years ago, their artists fought for the free expression of their art. 100 years later, Facebook and Instagram’s algorithms make their fight obsolete. And label Viennese art „pornographic“. Leading to blocked accounts and deleted posts. Our brief was to advertise Vienna’s cultural heritage in this very climate. We created an integrated campaign to protest censorship: On OnlyFans, in print and radio.

Story Accompagnée par l’agence Marcel, Heetch s’est associée à plusieurs restaurateurs franciliens pour distribuer des emballages portant haut et fort ses convictions. De couleur rose, ces emballages rappellent en quatre punchlines ce qui fait la différence de la marque : Heetch une entreprise 100% made in France, Heetch la plateforme à la plus faible commission marché 15%), Heetch paye ses impôts en France et Heetch le VTC qui défend une mobilité accessible au plus grand nombre. Les restaurateurs n’avaient alors plus qu’à glisser ces emballages dans leurs commandes, en toute discrétion.
Philosophy Aujourd’hui, la plateforme affirme plus que jamais ses positions en rappelant à son audience, toujours mobile et adepte des livraisons de repas à domicile, tout particulièrement en ce moment, que choisir le bon VTC peut tout changer. Accompagnée par l’agence Marcel, Heetch s’est associée à plusieurs restaurateurs franciliens pour distribuer des emballages portant haut et fort ses convictions.

Date of First Broadcast/Publication 2021 / 4
Business Sector Destinations (Countries & Places)
Story a new navigation service which instead of offering the fastest route to a destination, offers the most beautiful route instead. The service is designed for travelers visiting South Korea’s stunning Jeju Island to help them make the most of their trip. Using big data, developers crunched through 65,000 different points of interest across Jeju, then cross-referenced with data from social media and online searches via demographics, weather, time, and more with an aim to provide unique travel experiences and to assist safe trips during Covid-19. Jeju Island is known to many as one of the most picturesque places in South Korea with designated UNESCO World Heritage sites. With Covid-19, Jeju Island is now an even more popular road trip destination for South Koreans as travelling abroad has become extremely difficult. Some 87% of those who travel in Jeju get around the island by car with growing numbers of safety-conscious tourists preferring socially distanced travel in their own vehicles. With an aim to aid safe travels and to offer diverse experiences, Slow Road recommends a total of 50 different routes that connect popular attractions with lesser-known scenic spots in seven different regions, each coming with a distinctive theme that captures the multifaceted beauty of Jeju. Each route offers five to eleven waypoints to offer a wide selection of scenic routes to appeal to different demographics throughout the changing seasons, including the added benefit of reducing traffic congestion on main routes around the island. Once arriving in Jeju Island and activating T Map, the most widely used mobile navigation app in South Korea, travelers are directly led to a dedicated Slow Road page where they can explore various routes under different themes. Simply choose a favorite route, then the app will automatically give directions through multiple waypoints.

TitleKhortytsia - the island of a mystery
BriefThe Khortytsia Island brand is a graphic journey. Some elements are fully visible and some are hidden behind a cloak of secrecy. The more you immerse yourself in the world of the island, the more the identity is revealed. Abstract knowledge about the is-land becomes a personal experience: visual, tactile, sound, aromatic. The identity invites you to look behind the scenes, learn more and explore. All design elements were created based on the real attributes of Khortytsia: flora and fauna, historical artifacts, images from myths and legends, bronze, water, stone and other materials that make up the inner world of the island. The X sign is the first letter in the name of the island in Ukrainian and is also a symbol of mystery, its meaning may be different for everyone. We took X as a basis and created 24 different logos.

Tagline Khortytsia island
Story SECRET TOURISTIC BRAND OF UKRAINIAN ISLAND KHORTYTSIA This is the island of Khortytsia, the place where Ukrainian history was born. This is the island of centuries-old history, amazing nature, breathtaking secrets, myths, and legends that have been forgotten for many years. This year, according to President’s initiative, is the year when the island of Khortytsia started its renovation. Bickerstaff.738 creative agency accepted a challenge to tell everyone about all of the reasons to visit Khortytsia and decided… not to practically say a word to leave its mystery to the island and, moreover, make it the key feature. The X sign is the symbol of mystery, while the sense behind it uniquely uncovers to everyone who sees it. So does the identity that develops along with people’s knowledge of it. This progressive disclosure principle works for any type of visual language: photos, typography, illustrations, and any static or dynamic types of content. Quite literally, the new touristic brand of Khortytsia invites everyone to discover their own stories about the island. The new brand of Khortytsia is a graphic journey that grows along with people’s increasing knowledge of it. Here the heart of the island opens wider, the deeper you get to know it. Centuries-old secrets are hidden here behind abstract facts, and they do open up to people uniquely as soon as they are ready. And if you are ready to open the island of Khortytsia in your own way, just take a deep breath and go for it to meet the mystery.
Philosophy Khortytsia Island occupies a special place in the history of Ukraine, but it’s mostly unknown for Ukrainians because the Museum of the Cossacks supplanted all its other attractive aspects and became the only symbol of the island
Problem We were challenged to develop a tourism brand that would open the island to internal and external tourism, show its diversity and encourage people to explore Khortytsia.
Result We use the island’s mystery as an advantage and create an intriguing brand, a graphic journey to become an incentive for a person to explore the island. We created 24 different logos from the X sign as a symbol of mystery and the first letter in the name of the island, accidental font and a lot of design elements based on the real attributes of Khortytsia. The “curtain” effect, that reveals the deep essence of Khortytsia is easily scalable and works with graphics, illustration, photography and typography as well, it unites all parts of the identity and makes the island’s brand recognisable.

Story In Germany, around 9,000 people are waiting for an organ donation. And two of them die every day because their waiting time got too long.The BVG – the capitals public transport company - is the heart of Berlin, the pulse of the city and keeps it alive. But what would happen if this heart suddenly stopped?On September 29, World Heart Day, the whole BVG paused for a moment. At exactly 8 a.m. all passengers in trains, busses and metros stopped for an impressive message that came from the heart: a real organ donor addressed all passengers via video announcement and appealed to them to become a potential organ donor. We created another film that inspired millions of people online. We turned a simple ride into an emotional and lifesaving event.

TitleMY 2020 TRAVEL PROJECT
BriefDuring a time when airlines couldn’t transport people anymore, we created a unique travel influence campaign with a travel influencer who had a trip cancelled. In order to take as many people as possible on our journey, we needed to find the right profile: a Flying Blue member with a large social media audience interested in travel. Jonathan Bertin was the perfect choice : a travel influencer with 250k followers across all his networks with a trip to Tokyo cancelled. We suggested him, to send 30 cameras where he had planned to go in Tokyo. Like a message in a bottle, but with everything people needed to send it back. After weeks of waiting, he received hundreds of photos from total strangers. By discovering the faces and places of his cancelled trip, Jonathan finally traveled to Japan. This fresh travel content was turned into an entire influencer campaign. A campaign that took everyone on a journey. Without going anywhere, this travel influencer shared the most followed trip of his life.
