August was an exciting month with over 10 campaigns launched. We liked top 5 campaigns based on strategy and execution.
1.Black Shines greatest campaign by Guinness
Uganda woke up to ` What does Black mean to you?` teaser on 12th August with UBL and NBS TV social media profiles in a black out.
Black Shines Brightest’ is a new Pan African campaign celebrating the iconic black liquid enjoyed all over the continent for over a century.
This exciting new campaign is inspired by the bold and unique black beer of Guinness stout and brings together passionate and creative individuals to celebrate the spirit of Guinness and its home across African markets.
To launch the campaign, Guinness worked with real culture makers from across the continent who demonstrate how Black Shines Brightest in a range of different ways. These individuals created moments, events and content to be enjoyed by everyone.
We loved the well curated, black deep voice over and black visual TV advert among other campaign aspects. Ugandan influencers including musicians, DJs, MCs, Media personalities kept the campaign black teaser model and yes, we loved their vibe.
To the team managing the Guinness brand, this was marketing supremacy.
