Christmas Means More – A Covid Christmas

The 90 second film, shot over two days mid lockdown 2.0, addressed the importance of Christmas and bringing the family together, after what has been a difficult year for most.

Greene King tasked our team with creating an emotive film to be activated across social media channels, to help drive table bookings in pubs this festive season, despite the hardship facing the hospitality industry.

We worked with agency partner, Keane, and Greene King’s brand managers, our story saw three families visiting their local Greene King pub, enjoying the festive menu available from the pub chain, in a warm and safe environment.

Summer of Sport – Gamifying Redemption

What started as a brief to acquire new customers via the Season Ticket App during a summer without men’s football, evolved into a multi-faceted campaign, rolled out across 760+ Greene King outlets nationwide.

It smashed target after target, boosting engagement with existing Season Ticket users and significantly increasing the app’s audience. Greene King can now market to these consumers for life. More than 80,000 customers gave the brands involved millions of minutes of attention. The result was sky-high redemption rates and thousands more customers for Greene King pubs.
