Cannes Lions recognises the fight against plastic
The Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity took place this week where the Design Grand Prix went to the Trash Isles campaign for successfully raising awareness around plastic pollution in our oceans. As we continue to fight against plastic (both in our office and for our client, SodaStream), we’re thrilled to see such powerful campaigns make waves on an international level.
Women who drink white wine are happier than those who drink red
Research has found that women who drink white wine are happier than those who drink red. 200 people volunteered to blind-taste six white, rose and red wines (sounds like a hard life!), and were then asked what feelings were evoked. Women reported feeling significantly happier after drinking the white wine. We know what we’ll be having this Friday!

Habitat for Humanity Brazil posters make a difference
In hot countries, standing water helps fuel the breeding of mosquitoes which can transmit disease. Habitat for Humanity Brazil used this knowledge to develop outdoor advertising with a real difference.

A great initiative to not only educate but tackle an issue head on.
KFC promotes its ‘Clean Eating Burger’
In a bold move KFC have taken a swipe at clean-eating food bloggers, running a campaign to promote the ‘KFC Clean Eating Burger’ on their social media. Made from a chia-seeded cauliflower bun, unsweetened almond yoghurt, ice cube relish, spiralized chicken breast and 100% British kale they have created the cleanest KFC burger ever. This campaign isolates and mocks influential bloggers, KFC seem to be embracing the ‘any news is not bad news’ mantra.
