Our three favourite marketing campaigns

We are constantly surrounded by marketing campaigns. And with summer almost over, it’s time for us to reflect on our favourite marketing campaigns from July.

Marketing campaigns can increase brand awareness, raise awareness around a specific topic, reach new audiences and promote products or services. But a good marketing campaign is perfectly planned and will show passion or excitement. Take a look at our favourite campaigns from July.

Girls Don’t Like Football, They Love it Campaign

The Place To Be Seen Campaign

The ’Place To Be Seen’ campaign celebrates the newly opened UK’s first LGBTQ+ museum. M&C Saatchi London partnered with Queer Britain opening the museum on 20 July with its exhibition ‘We Are Queer Britain’.

The marketing campaign stresses the importance of visibility for LGBTQ+ people, culture and history. This comes after the 50th anniversary of the UK’s first Pride March and honours the celebration by showcasing protest placards instead of the rainbow icon. Watch the video here.

This campaign earned its place in our top three because of its celebration of culture, history and LGBTQ+ people. There’s no doubt that this campaign has helped plant the seed of self-worth and acceptance across LGBTQ+ people and the younger generation.


The Last Photo Campaign

This marketing campaign raises awareness of mental health and suicide. Although a heavy subject for summer, it’s one that needs to be talked about more often. This campaign was launched by the mental health charity CALM. It features the last photos of suicide victims provided by their families. These 50 portraits were shown on London’s South Bank. The campaign also launched with a TV ad of the last videos captured emphasising the message that suicide doesn’t always look suicidal. The TV ad first aid on ITVs This Morning and was soon shared across multiple platforms and channels.

Why did this campaign land a spot in the top three? 

This campaign is at the heart of most people who have experienced mental illness or lost someone to suicide. Not only does this campaign raise awareness of the subject, but it encourages conversation and increases understanding. In honour of those who’ve lost their lives and to create conversation among generations, this campaign deserves a spot in our top three.

Bonus Campaign: IKEA – Fortune Favours the Frugal

IKEA launched a new campaign featuring an ad with an enormous meteor made up of waste and litter produced by the nation. The ad shows how swapping earth-damaging goods for more eco-friendly solutions can make a big difference. As people live more sustainably in the ad, the meteor breaks down so much that when it reaches early it is just a single plastic bottle.

This campaign encourages people to think differently about their lifestyles, the environment and how they can play their part in being more eco-friendly. Although this campaign launched in January 2021, it is still highly relevant and important as the nation takes on environmental issues. Watch the video here.
