IKEA – Catalog 2020

The launch of the IKEA Catalogue takes place every year almost as a ritual but this year it has a deeper meaning, linked to the new role that our homes have in our lives and to the brand’s ability to positively support the need for change. Based on these premises, DDB Group Italy developed a strategic and communication platform in which the IKEA Catalogue was turned into a handbook that makes even the impossible seem possible, like adopting sustainable living solutions without great effort and with ease.

During the pre-launch phase we creatively played on a paradox: nobody knows better than animals how to balance sustainability with saving, as they are capable in their daily life of living in a perfectly sustainable way without using too many resources. This is how our digital and social video-strategy, with many “furry” protagonists, was launched.

 

The launch Campaign instead, which included Print, Billboard, Digital and Radio channels, describes the iconic actions linked to the new products that “talk” about sustainability: from meatballs with vegetable proteins that taste identical to meat, the BILLY bookcase edition produced with wood from the forest damaged by the Vaia storm, to bedroom products made from cotton grown with sustainable methods that fully respect the environment.

 

Spring starts from you.

With IKEA we created the concept “Spring starts from you”, a state of mind more than just a season, which develops at home, even with small changes, and then slowly let us open to the world with a renewed creative spirit.

IKEA has driven the arrival of Spring with an articulated communication strategy:

The first big moment came to life in the Carugate store, with a totally “springed-over” entrance, both outside where customers were greeted by a floral signboard, and inside where the first display area was completely enveloped by the explosion of the new season.

 

But that’s not all. IKEA then took its own Spring around the city of Milan with a tram full of green outside and a sensory experience made of sounds and scents inside.

 

Let’s not call them heroes.

Together with Bennet, we made the video “Let’s not call them heroes”, dedicated to all the employees, for the responsibility and dedication they showed during COVID emergency and for the extraordinary commitment they continue to face in this period.

Bennet played a major role in supporting local communities during the COVID-19 emergency. This required an extraordinary organizational effort, carried out by its 6725 employees, with great commitment and sense of responsibility.

In order to give visibility and credit to each one of them, we made a video which presents employees not as heroes, but as normal people to be thanked even more strongly and spontaneously.
