Bruketa&Žinić&Grey and Addiko Bank among the most efficient in Europe Tue, 17 Jul 2018 07:04:30 +0000

Bruketa&Žinić&Grey and Addiko Bank with the Campaign for Current Accounts Packages are the only ones, not only from Croatia but also from the entire region, to have made it to the Final Round of the renowned Euro Effie Competition this year. This achievement is even greater owing to the fact that this is the only campaign for financial services across Europe that has managed to reach the Final Round.

Euro Effie is an annual competition that rewards the most effective multi-national commercial communications campaigns in Europe. Judges look at the creativity of solutions and the results achieved, and the competition is organised by the European Association of Communications Agencies (EACA).

To reach the Euro Effie Final Round is an extraordinary achievement in its own right, especially when one takes into account all the competing organisations and creative agencies in Europe, whose budgets and resources we can only dream of. Nevertheless, with a right communication strategy, a good creative original solution and a committed team anything is possible. Whilst acknowledging other finalists, as they all have rightfully deserved to qualify for the Final Round, I hope we won’t stop at the Final Round only,” said Maja Čulig, Head of Marketing with Addiko Group.

I’m happy about the recognition of both creativity and effectiveness of the Addiko Bank’s Campaign for Current Accounts Packages in the region, particularly because this is the only campaign in the financial sector in Europe that has managed to reach the Final Round. Since the very launch of its new brand Addiko Bank has been delivering excellent business performance in the market, which would not have been possible without a good and dynamic team made up of advertisers’ and agency’s representatives as well,” said Ivanka Mabić Gagić, Head of International Business with the Bruketa&Žinić&Grey Agency.

The winners will be known at the Award Ceremony to be held in Brussels on 16 October.

On the eve of semi-final England vs Croatia match during World Cup, the most well-known Croatian tea brand Franck has sent a package of its Chamomile Tea to Prince Harry. The project was created in collaboration with Bruketa&Žinić&Grey and the story was picked up by numerous Croatian media and fans via social media in just a couple of hours.

England is famed for football and tea. Our national team has proven that Croatia is also a great force on the international football map. And as for the tea, we decided to make it easier on Prince Harry to watch the game knowing it could be tough considering our team’s excellent game,” said the company and they were right.

The package included the “Keep calm and dream on” message, referencing the British government’s historic motivational messages, and the tea box included a letter from Franck, apologizing for not being able to send a wedding present on time, and wanting to make up for that now.

A book able to withstand fire and water Mon, 09 Jul 2018 12:17:23 +0000

Only those companies that continuously adapt to circumstances are able to grow, develop and resist challenges. This is a message that Adris Grupa, one of the most successful companies in the region, wanted to convey on the occasion of publishing their latest Annual Report.

This publication contains the AG last year’s business performance and is literally challenge-proof: it can withstand tearing, creasing, water and fire. No matter how tested, the book remained undamaged, illustrating the firmness and the strength of Adris Grupa results, and the company’s ability to cope with any situation.

The book was designed and made jointly by Adris Grupa and the Bruketa&Žinić&Grey Agency whose Creative Director Zrinka Horvat Goodman explained:

The book was subject to flambéing in the kitchen of the Lone Hotel, dipped into the sea and taken for a spin across the fish farm by Cromaris fishermen, frozen in liquid nitrogen at -195.79°C with the help of the Adris Foundation fellow, Assistant Professor Dinko Mitretić, Ph.D., tested to creasing and tearing by children at the Amarin Hotel, and even run over by a 2-ton off-road vehicle at a Croatia Osiguranje Motor Vehicle Inspection Station. The book remained undamaged.

Seventh Cropak Award Thu, 14 Jun 2018 16:31:05 +0000

The Cropak Award ceremony for best packaging achievements in Croatia was held at the Sheraton Hotel in Zagreb on Tuesday 12 June. The overall Best Packaging Design Award was given to Bruketa&Žinić&Grey for their design of the gift edition of Chiavalon olive oil.

The Chiavalon Family, one of the most awarded extra virgin olive oil producers in Croatia, wanted to communicate more effectively the origin of their olive oils and the link between the tradition, state of the art technology and art of their production. A special gift edition of Chiavalon olive oil was inspired by the traditional architecture and art in Istria, film, music and the murals of Vodnjan, putting together historical and contemporary heritage.

We are very happy that besides presenting us with the award for the quality of our products the professional circles also recognize the effort invested in their design. This award is a fruit of our long-standing cooperation with the Bruketa&Žinić&Grey Agency and as such it doubtlessly also celebrates the long-lasting friendship cultivated throughout the years with people from the agency. I would like to thank the whole team for knowing every time how to translate our vision into reality recognized by the connoisseurs as well,” said Tedi Chiavalon on this occasion.

This is the seventh Cropak Award for the Bruketa&Žinić&Grey Agency, and the second they have won for their cooperation with the Chiavalon Family Farm from Vodnjan.  

The Cropak competition is organised with the aim to promote and underline the advantages and benefits of the packaging as an important tool helping to safeguard, promote and identify a product. It was organised by the Tectus Institute for Packaging and Graphic Arts for the fifteenth year in a row. The competition also strives to highlight the need of achieving qualitative progress in designing visual identity of the packaging, graphic and industrial design, its environmentally-friendly features and of making an integrated contribution to the environmental protection from the perspective of packaging management and packaging waste.

The Identity of the Futurological Conference Visualising Real-Time Twitter Discussions on Future Thu, 14 Jun 2018 07:50:00 +0000

What will the future look like? The Croatian Bruketa&Žinić&Grey Agency has tried to answer this question by designing the visual identity for Komunikacijski laboratorij Agency and their Future Tense Conference to be held on 2 October in Zagreb. The conference will feature leading global futurologists Morgaine Gaye, Gerd Leonhard, Aric Dromi and David Birch, addressing the issues concerning the way we will live and work in the future.

We can only speculate about the future and thus the visual identity of the Future Tense Conference is not fixed that is it has a continuously and infinitely shifting shape, depending on the use of specific words and phrases on Twitter. Some of the hashtags affecting the shapeshifting visual identity are: future, business, foresight, innovation, change, machine learning and sustainability.

Instead of a classical logo we have designed and programmed a bot visually represented by two robotic eyes,” explains Mirna Ptiček, Art Director at the Bruketa&Žinić&Grey Agency, adding: “The bot has an ongoing and direct reference to active hashtags on Twitter and accordingly constructs and deconstructs the vision of the future, translating the hashtags into its own symbolic graphical language. None of the visions is finite or accurate and thus the bot is continually active and visually unique at any given moment. The animation starts with the wireframe cube rotation taken apart by the bot, seeking answers beyond of what’s known.”

Nikola Žinić, Chief Creative Officer at the Bruketa&Žinić&Grey Agency said: “Using this visual identity we as an agency have also put ourselves in the position of a futurologist and have given an answer to the question concerning our vision of visual identities in the future. We see them as dynamic and shifting in line with the data collected in different ways. In this particular case we have picked Twitter as a source of data in the form of specific hashtags the frequency of which affects the appearance of the logo making it never the same. It is difficult to predict the future, and similarly it is difficult to predict the shape of the Future Tense logo.

The Future Tense Conference is a project authored by the Croatian Komunikacijski laboratorij Agency the intention of which was to make the Croatian business community consider the potentials of applying futurological predictions in business.
