TBWA\Hunt\Lascaris in Johannesburg promoted their design department recently by sending briefs back to clients transformed by in-house designers. Although the agency is well established as an above-the-line agency, their clients were yet to be introduced to the wealth of talent that TBWA\ Design has to offer. To get their clients’ attention, the agency intercepted existing above-the-line briefs and used the physical advertising brief as their canvas. Instead of answering the brief in a traditional manner, TBWA conceptualized various designs that captured the essence of the brands, then brought them to life using only the cardboard job bags and the briefs that were attached to them. Designers created intricate pieces of paper art, transforming client’s briefs into multi-dimensional design pieces. Briefs were sent back to clients, proving that TBWA\ Design can do amazing things with their briefs.
