Leo Burnett's Justin Tindall's creative pick of 2014: #LidlSurprises

Justin Tindall, group executive creative director at Leo Burnett London, says: "I’m a very big fan of this year’s Lidl campaign. The work is simple, disarming and clever. But what I admire above all is that this is a brand that knows that this is its moment and it is seizing it with both hands."

Summary This campaign by Lidl marked a step-change in tone for the German discounter.
