Duval Guillaume supports Viva for Life

From 17 till 23 December Viva for Life takes place for the fourth time. Three presenters from the VivaCité radiostation are locked in a glass studio for six days to raise funds for young children and families living in poverty. Instead of developing a campaign that focuses on children that live in poverty, Duval Guillaume focused their campaign on “normal” kids discovering and doing things for the first time – and hating it: like eating sprouts and going to the dentist. Growing up is not easy. But it’s even harder if you grow up without enough means.

Flair sharpens its image with Duval Guillaume

The Belgian women's magazine Flair aims to inspire women to turn their dreams into plans. With the digitalisation in mind, Flair does not want to restrict itself to being just a magazine, but additionally wants to create a strong online presence offering both content and products. It's Flair's aim to become top of mind with women between the ages of 18 and 35. In order to get a refreshingly new view on the future of the brand and to ensure the latest techniques regarding digitalisation of the magazine market are employed to its full potential, Flair organised a pitch. After consulting several different agencies, Duval Guillaume came out as the most suitable partner. A reconfirmation of Flair's trust in the agency, since Duval Guillaume has been Flair's advertising partner for the last 13 years.

Iconic Airline Air France has landed at Duval Guillaume

Air France has partnered with Duval Guillaume to jointly launch a series of activation campaigns in Belgium. The iconic airline intends to regain its top-of-mind positioning amongst people in the north of the country as the most convenient companion for overseas travel.

Air France selected the Belgian agency because of a shared vision for the brand, as well as its exceptionally strong strategic approach.

Ellen Schouppe, Campaign Manager at Air France: “We believe that with Duval Guillaume we have found the most suitable partner to develop these activation campaigns. Being a Belgian office with substantial knowledge of the Belgian consumer can only add value to the Air France brand within Belgium.”

The campaign will emphasise the convenience of the airline for the Flemish traveler: a trip with Air France begins at Brussels South train station, where all luggage can already be checked in for the final destination.

The first of several activations will launch towards the end of November/beginning of December.


BESIDES MONEY AND BLOOD, YOU CAN NOW ALSO DONATE APPLICANTS TO RED CROSS FLANDERS

 

45: The number of (job) vacancies at Red Cross Flanders at the moment.
The organisation doesn’t only need socially dedicated volunteers but also true professionals, like executive and management functions. Since most applicants tend to fall under this first category, Red Cross Flanders has difficulties to fill its vacancies.

That’s why we published an open letter in three major national newspapers in which the CEO of Red Cross Flanders communicates an open call to his fellow managers: “Donate your applicants who didn’t get the job, we are looking for the same profiles.”  

The open letter didn’t go unnoticed.

In the first 24 hours after publication, the national news picked up the story resulting in primetime coverage on radio, blogs, print and TV which led to several companies such as security group G4S promising a structural collaboration. We are sure more will follow soon.

Duval Guillaume and Publicis 133 develop first international advertising campaign for Scotch & Soda

Following a pitch conducted earlier this year, Publicis 133 and Duval Guillaume won the Scotch & Soda account, a renowned Dutch fashion brand.

The two agencies have joined forces to unite their unique strengths and skills: Publicis 133 for its creativity, culture, luxury and fashion brands and expertise in crafting beautiful campaigns and Duval Guillaume for its ability to fundamentally reframe brands based on strong strategic insights and digital activation ideas that leave no one indifferent.

Scotch & Soda's first integrated brand campaign is a visual nod to the way the brand creates and crafts its pieces: Scotch & Soda collections are born when its designers begin their journey to unearth remarkable finds that spark the creation process back home. This could lead them anywhere in the world, and the discovery could be anything; a poem, a vintage fabric, a ruin or artefact. We curate and remix our finds back home: ‘From Amsterdam, From Everywhere.’

Shot by Emma Summerton and styled by Ondine Azoulay, the campaign features Amsterdam born model and star Imaan Hammam and Naleye Junior. Both were asked to join the Scotch & Soda family because of their worldly yet Amsterdam roots. Models Ellen de Weer (BE), Laura Julie (DK), Ryad Slimani (FR), Ryan Keating (CAN) complete the line-up.

The campaign will run in print, out of home as well as online through a film. The media focus is Germany and the Netherlands - where the brand will concentrate its growth strategy over the next three years.

Duval Guillaume wins gold and bronze at the Cannes Lions Festival

Three awards for Duval Guillaume at the Cannes Lions for the Waiting Lines campaign for Re-born to be Alive: a Gold PR Lion, a Bronze Media Lion and a Bronze Film Lion. Aim of the campaign was to raise awareness on organ donation. Duval Guillaume developed an online movie in which they made a very special offer to people standing in line at the opening of the Brussels Apple store. 

The city of Antwerp - Trash Tunes

The city of Antwerp throws Snoop Dogg, Tina Turner and K3 in the trash bin.

The city of Antwerp engages in a lot of activities to keep the streets of the city clean. But a clean city is a shared responsibility. The existing trash bins are very much integrated in the streetscape, and are therefore not easy to notice. To raise the awareness amongst the visitors and the people living in Antwerp, Duval Guillaume came up with a unique initiative: we transformed their trashbins into vintage jukeboxes, that play music when you throw garbage in.

EFFIE FINALIST 2016

The Effie Effectiveness Forum will take place in Brussels on June 9, and will be followed by the Effie Awards Ceremony.

Bold movie for World Red Cross Day

8 May is World Red Cross Day, the perfect time to create some buzz around the organisation that helps and saves people around the world, every day. Duval Guillaume created a movie to confront people with the enormous impact of the Red Cross on society. With an enumeration of bold historical figures of people killed by other crosses from different religions, parties or tendencies, the comparison is made with the dazzling amount of people saved by the Red Cross. This online movie is targeted at young people, since the Red Cross is looking for a new wave of volunteers.
