Five gongs at the Roses Creative Awards
They know how to put on a party in Manchester, and we suspect many of the large contingent we sent will be making their way back this morning, clutching fruit-smoothies, bacon rolls and pain killers. Living the dream.
We scored two Gold awards. Best Consumer Goods ad for the Krispy Kreme ‘Nessie’ poster that helped bring central Edinburgh to a standstill at the launch of the brand’s first Scottish outlet; and the coveted Best TV Ad under 21 seconds trophy for Windsetlers, and a spot that sees a mouthy plate of sea bass and mussels deliver a stinging put-down on a lady’s date-night fashion choice (see above).
These were backed up by two Silver awards, both for work with St Austell Brewery, Best Outdoor Campaign and Best 4,6 Sheet Poster. While the Krispy Kreme ‘Nessie’ poster also picked up a Bronze for Best 48/96 Sheet Poster.
Fellow mission agency Big Communications also scored a clutch of Awards, including a Gold for Best Low Budget Campaign and a Silver for Copywriting, while we were narrowly pipped to the Grand Prix prize by Robson Brown, making it a tasty night all round for the mission crew.
