FCA! has unveiled its first work for the Wales Tourist Board since

winning the account in July.



The agency, which took the business from Saatchi & Saatchi, is

repositioning Wales as a holiday destination ’two hours and a million

miles away’.



The pounds 5 million, three-year strategy is based on the fact that

people living in most major conurbations in England can reach the Welsh

border in two hours or less.



The through-the-line campaign focuses on the rejuvenating effect of a

holiday in Wales and targets a range of holidaymakers.



In the main poster work, small black-and-white ’before’ shots are

contrasted with large colour ’after’ scenes of people on a visit to

Wales. In one execution, the small picture shows a young couple sitting

tensely at a breakfast table while the main shot shows them kissing on a

beach. The headline says: ’This morning they were at each other’s

throats.’



The posters, which break on 5 January, were written by Adam Tucker and

art directed by Justin Tindall.



The creative work will also be integrated into a promotional campaign,

including direct mail and magazine inserts in February. The drive will

culminate with television advertising in May, when most people book

their summer holiday.
