Silver 2020

Commercial National Silver 2020 – «Zoo Basel Imagekampagne von A bis Zoo»

In a few years, Basel Zoo will celebrate its 125th anniversary. Today, the institution continues to hold a special place in the public’s heart. However, striking a balance between nature conservation and animal protection also presents many new challenges for the zoo.
The concept: use a range of designs characteristic to the zoo to give the organisation a more original brand positioning.

Bronze 2020

Commercial National Bronze 2020 – digitec Community «Wunsch»

It’s the time of year for over-the-top, glitzy Christmas posters, but digitec takes an even more deadpan approach than usual and once again turns to the digitec website for content. The campaign is designed to see people through the festive season. Instead of using the digitec community’s product ratings, technical questions or discussions about specific products, the campaign curated their hopes and wishes.

Nomination 2020

Commercial National Nomination 2020 – digitec Community «Corona Edit»

A classic community campaign was the original plan, and then the coronavirus arrived, giving us more time to engage with the digitec community. It became clear fairly quickly that the campaign should relate to the reality of life for our customers. In some cases there were even comments and ratings that directly referenced the pandemic. Other content was collected long before lockdown, and it only became really interesting when seen in the new context.

Gold 2020

Commercial Local and Regional Gold 2020 – Kein Tier im Visier 2 – Jagdgesetz-Kampagne

This is the next instalment of the Hiltl campaign “Kein Tier im Visier”, which won the 2019 Poster of the Year. The three new poster designs – wolf, lynx and ibex – were launched before the vote on new Swiss hunting legislation and were supported by wildlife conservation organisations such as WWF. The outcome: another bull’s eye for Hiltl, and not just with dyed-in-the-wool vegetarians.

During the coronavirus lockdown in spring 2020, Hiltl chefs livestreamed direct into people’s kitchens across Switzerland, allowing followers to cook along with them live and create Hiltl specialities at home. The creatives at Ruf Lanz were also quick off the mark, creating three poster designs that grabbed attention with their chef’s hat lookalikes.

Instead of showing people clutching their stomachs with scrunched-up faces, TBWA\Zürich took a more unconventional route and used the familiar intestinal shape to depict small snippets from everyday life with bold imagery.

Public Service Gold 2020 – Nur Tiere dürfen wegschauen

Animals are the only ones that can turn a blind eye to animal cruelty. After all, they cannot stand up for their own rights, so they rely on people to take action. The awareness campaign for Stiftung Tier im Recht addresses this subject in a powerful way. The poster’s subjects may be looking away, but viewers certainly won’t be. The campaign comprises five designs.

Public Service Bronze 2020 – In sich gekehrte Matrjoschkas

Communicating with the outside world can be hard for people with autism. They can often shut themselves off and retreat into themselves, and they need other people to understand this. The awareness campaign for Autismus Forum Schweiz addresses this by turning a concept on its head with striking results. Four designs were lovingly created for this campaign.
