Organisers from the country’s biggest mass-participation sports events (MSO), including London Marathon Events, invited us to co-create and launch a national fundraising campaign. The objective was to reduce the staggering predicted funding shortfall of £60 billion that was going to hit the UK charity sector as a result of the global pandemic. During April 2020, we inspired the UK public to get creative from the safety of their homes to raise £11.2 million.
In direct response to the pandemic, our team devised a way to hand-in-glove with members of MSO and social media pros, LiveWire Sport, to devise and deliver a national fundraising campaign that would not only raise as much money as possible, but raise money for as many UK charities as possible, as quickly as possible.
Using the story as a strategic foundation, we crafted a dynamic brand identity that was bold, bright and uplifting – encapsulating the fun available who took part in this once-in-a-lifetime national event.
The creative objective was to build excitement but without any budget (or time) to deliver the work, we relied on stock photography – a diverse and inclusive mix – featuring ‘everyday folks’ to ensure it was clearly recognised as an accessible campaign. The creative had to encourage everyone, from children to grandparents, to join the marathon effort.
If you want an agency to deliver great creative work and deliver on their promises, then make Studio Republic the first people you call. It will be a call you never regret.
