intel case Intel: Work, Relax, Play
To promote the Intel® Core™2 Duo processor we put together a campaign which included vodcasts, online and print elements. Two exciting glossy magazines inserted in the paper featured interviews with celebrities like Mark Ronson, Sarah Beeny and DJ Gilles Peterson. We also set up a partnership with PC World to promote the campaign in their stores and online.

BJK&E and Mercedes-Benz created a dedicated business partnership with The Independent in order to spearhead the new C-Class launch in June 2007. The campaign devised by the Solutions Team at The Independent was truly integrated across print and online channels.

The Independent's 48 Hours is one of our iconic and most respected brands. We offered Opodo exclusive sponsorship and ownership of this brand and it's content over a twelve month period. The result was an exciting and innovative campaign across print and online.

Toyota wanted to promote their Yaris car with the aim to make it the first car in its class Independent readers think of. It was vital to execute the BigSMALL campaign’s message through a series of balances and contrasts; of size, magnitude, power and effect.

feature image Sony Ericsson: The Secret Review
In order to bring Sony Ericsson closer to the Bond brand, we proposed to produce a magazine that had the look and feel of our award winning Sunday magazine The Sunday Review. The magazine was created to appeal to the entire readership of The Independent.

feature image 48 Hours: Emirates
To position Emirates as the number one global carrier to the Independent readership we created a campaign, which gave them exclusive sponsorship of the ‘48 Hours’ pillar brand. The Independent Traveller supplement on Saturday featured 26 Emirates key priority destinations both in print and online. This resulted in an increased awareness of Emirates to 96% among Independent readers.
