Sydney, Australia – Local beer brand Great Northern has launched a new campaign, centred around the theme of showing the ‘feel-good’ side of being outdoors.
The creative, developed by Clemenger BBDO Melbourne, juxtaposes the high-end, luxury activities people do to relax and unwind against similar activities that can be found in the great outdoors.
The new work, built on the brand’s platform ‘The Beer For Up Here’ features three launch films to bring it to life, playing off luxury hotels, fine dining, and inner-city bars.
It also features a series of OOH and digital displays bought against publications such as Urban List, Traveller and Good Food so that the creative is contextual to the articles it runs next to.
Hugh Jellie, marketing manager at Great Northern Brewing Co., said, “Regional Australia cannot be matched. We’re so lucky to have these amazing places in our own backyard. For us, our challenge is to inspire as many people as possible to get out into the great Australian outdoors to feel refreshed and energised. And let’s face it, a trip into the outdoors is even better with some great friends and some great beer for the end of the day.”
Meanwhile, Jim Curtis, national chief creative Officer at Clemenger BBDO, commented, “When it comes to making yourself feel good, things seem to be getting more and more complicated. There are opulent retreats, fancy restaurants that are hard to pronounce, complicated workouts – the list goes on. But the truth is, much of what we need is already in the great Australian outdoors. We also aimed to use the feel of the brand to give people a nice break from all the shouting in any given ad break.”
