CAMPAIGN MEDIA AWARDS 1998: Best Use of Mixed Media - Avanti, the relaunch of sex

Avanti, the relaunch of sex.

Avanti, the relaunch of sex.



Traditionally, condom advertising is focused around sex. The premium

positioning and price of these condoms led to the strategy of appealing

to a more affluent and discerning audience that is in search of a

superior lifestyle. So, media included postcards in top restaurants,

arts/cultural review sections, internet banner ads on appropriate sites,

interior taxi panels, style and lifestyle sections in magazines and

sampling activity in exclusive retail outlets.



BOOTS 17 COSMETICS



Designed to appeal to media-literate and sceptical teenagers, the media

plan included affiliations with the Avengers movie, sponsorship of the

Big Breakfast’s ’find me a model’ and relevant outdoor - including

washrooms.



STELLA ARTOIS, MOVIES THAT MATTER



The need to maintain Stella’s reassuringly expensive image inspired a

focus on the movies, using TV (around quality or cult movies), a ’UCI

Stella screen’ slot that showed cult movies every week throughout the

summer and a deal with Emap including sponsorship of the Empire movie

awards.
