Polo Snow Stamp

Polo mints, the Nescafe sweets known for their ice cold effect, became the brand of the winter snow last year. In December 2009 the entire UK was blanketed in snow. This was a brief opportunity to use snow as a blank canvas, an original and pure medium. Taking advantage of the adverse weather, JWT London produced a tactical ambient idea, a ‘Polo snow stamp’. When stamped in thick fresh snow it left a near perfect replica of the iconic mint, illustrating the white, fresh nature of the mint. The campaign has won a Gold Outdoor Lion at Cannes International Advertising Festival 2010.

    “The medium is the message”. How cool can you get? Here’s a classic case of the ‘third-eye’ capturing an idea before it melts. 22 carats well deserved.

    Snowtagging was created and delivered for the first time globally by CURB in February 2009 for the Extreme sports channel. It is wonderful to see that an idea created by a tiny start up agency has gone onto win this prestigious award. For loads of photos that inspired this great campaign click on the link below:
