It is fair to say that we're all currently dealing with a new way of life. Our commutes have become 30 seconds not 30 minutes, we find ourselves chatting to our families in the kitchen, not our colleagues and well, lunches are by no means as adventurous as they once were.
It's unprecedented times, nobody knows how long this will last, nor do we understand the eventual outcomes and it's the same for brands. I was browsing LinkedIn this weekend and spotted a heated debate from two senior agency leaders debating some of the responses or lack of response from brands and this got me thinking. So, I dug a little deeper to see if I could find any interesting campaigns brands have pulled together with the creative & media agencies, to respond to this ongoing crisis.
It's fair to say, there are some great ideas on there! Below I've listed & highlighted a few for you all to take a look at!
