We did EVERYTHING we could! Wed, 11 Oct 2017 10:25:26 +0000

New communication platform for Vipnet promotes the tariff portfolio EVERYTHING (SVE) and defines the creative format of the campaigns to follow

Switch off boring

Throughout Croatia, billboards with different messages have been circulating for some time, using SVE (everything) as an inspiration for creativity. There were some interesting attempts – from the song Bacila je SVE niz rijeku (She threw it EVERYTHING down the river), to Dobro je SVE (EVERYTHING’s fine) – and finally the real slogan of Vip was revealed: EVERYTHING is in your hands.


I don’t have EVERYTHING together


Give EVERYTHING you can

Billboard placed on a bridge. Copy: She threw EVERYTHING down the river (a popular song).

Switch on control

The goal of the slogan EVERYTHING in your hands is to remind people that they have control over technology and digital tools. They don’t serve just for entertainment. In order to make the most of it, we have to try to find the best purpose for technology.

By using the switch on/off form, campaign provides users with examples that are socially relevant and current, and motivates them and shows how they can make an impact using technology.

The TV ad takes an attractive approach to dealing with stories that emotionally touch us and which are close to us, such as the achievements of Rimac (the fastest electric car producer from Croatia), the united fans, and the emigration of young people to other EU countries.

And as Vip’s offer is completely convergent and includes tv + net + mob + tel, so this campaign for Vip is fully integrated and includes all communication channels, not just the OOH and TV.

Copy: EVERYTHING is in your hands

EVERYTHING is in our hands!

Đorđe Janković, Creative Director explains: “So many things, both beautiful and ugly, happen at any given moment. With the help of technology and the Internet, we become witnesses of all events and the question naturally arises – will we do something about it or not?

Through the campaign, we are dealing with socially relevant and current examples: blazing fires, school violence, youth leaving abroad, banning of freedoms, imposed morality, successes and failures in sports. Digital tools help us to express our views on everything that surrounds us and to initiate changes. All is in our hands.”

The First History that Holds a Place for Everyone Fri, 06 Oct 2017 15:18:29 +0000

For the occasion of the Croatia Insurance Company’s 133rd anniversary, Zagreb Grič Tunnel has been transformed into a multimedia time machine transporting into 133 years of an interlaced, stormy history of Croatia, the City of Zagreb and individual histories of every citizen and visitor.

The exhibition has been created by three agencies – Millenium promocija, Brigada and Bruketa&Žinić&Grey, and has been named Croatia is Croatia, emphasizing the historical role Croatia Insurance Company has had in the economical growth of the country since 1874, when it was founded by great Croatian writers and politicians August Šenoa, Ivan Vončina and Gjuro Deželić.

The exhibition covers 2100 square meters in total, spanning the full 350 m of the main tunnel hall, including 200 m of its passageways.

“We wanted this exhibition to make people feel the history as a living whole in which every individual takes their significant part and creates a single story,” says Damjan Geber, Brigada’s Creative Director whose concept of time travel and engaging individual historical stories was a foundation the entire spatial design was built on.

A net-like steel structure is installed in the tunnel like a tunnel inside the tunnel, the surface of which is partially empty, with an idea to take up the content of precisely those individual stories in time. The remaining surface is filled up with reproductions of historical artefacts, selected by Prof. Božo Skoko, Ph.D.

The digital part of the exhibition allowing the visitors to exhibit fragments of their own histories was conceived by Bruketa&Žinić&Grey Agency. After posting their old photograph on social networks using hashtag #povijestpisemosami, their photograph will find its place in Grič Tunnel during the exhibition period.

All exhibits will substantially span 13 decades characterized by interesting events, people and artefacts, but also by a completely different atmosphere the exhibition is to evoke. To make this happen, Brigada integrated the elements of multimedia and scenic design into the chief exhibition content to intensify the experiential aspect of the exhibition.

The passageways have thus been turned into interactive spaces featuring the specificities of the period they happen to be in. As a consequence, one passageway is dedicated to Nikola Tesla, whose inventions are shown with the help from students of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing. The other passageway has become a war bunker, whereas the third is a tavern from the 1960’s in which the visitors can dance to the music of the time.

Brigada has transformed the central part of the exhibition, the widest section of the tunnel for that matter, into a multisensory experience. In order to see the rest of the exhibition, the visitors have to walk through a dimmed, rainy section of the tunnel representing a sort of cleansing and a break for personal reflexion, as well as a safe passage into a new more optimistic period of the 1950’s after the grave period of the World War II history.

In the end, when exiting the tunnel to enter into the future, everyone can send their own digital text message that will also become a part of the exhibition.

Agency Establishes Itself as a Brand, Product & Retail Design Hub, and a Digital Shopper Hub For the Grey Group Global Network

Grey Group, a unit of WPP, the largest global communications services group, has completed its acquisition of a majority stake in Bruketa&Žinić OM as well as a 50% share of its sister agency Brigada. The agencies are now merging with Grey Zagreb to create Bruketa&Žinić&Grey.

The management team consists of Co-Chairmen and Chief Creative Officers, Nikola Žinić and Davor Bruketa with Siniša Waldinger as Executive Creative Director, Damjan Geber as CEO of Brigada and Nikola Bubanj CEO of Grey Adriatics.

The agency will operate under the new name as part of the global Grey network. This investment strengthens Grey’s position in the Adriatic region and enables the agency to leverage B&Ž’s core competencies across its European network.

Bruketa&Žinić&Grey will become one of three design hubs for Grey Europe, the others being the award winning shop KW43 in Düsseldorf and Brand Union in Stockholm, part of INGO. Designers in Zagreb have already begun working in collaboration with Grey agencies in Milan, Moscow and New York. Brigada is also developing architectural design plans for Grey’s European headquarters in London.

Additionally, Bruketa&Žinić&Grey recently expanded its offerings by recruiting a new digital team, that has years of experience working with some of the Adriatic region’s largest brands. This group is led by Ivan Kovačević and will form the core of a new Digital Shopper Hub which will help clients across Europe capitalize on the interaction between their digital activities and their instore/shopper activations. The team has already begun working on opportunities with Grey Warsaw.

“Our past work is based on successful collaborations,” said Davor Bruketa. “It was just two of us – Nikola Žinić and I – at the beginning and then later we were lucky to cooperate with a great number of exceptional people – creatives, entrepreneurs and all kinds of experts. Today we collaborate with some of the most ambitious organizations in this region. This is a new step in our development. There’s more space for us to grow our ideas internationally.”

“This collaboration will provide better service for our partners in Croatia and in the region because we will be able to connect the creativity of our teams with the insights and technology of the global Grey network. Almost all of our clients are searching for ways to export their products and services. We will now be able to better support their ambitions, no matter whether it is tourism, the food industry or innovative digital products,” said Nikola Žinić.

Damjan Geber agreed, “With Brigada, the Bruketa&Žinić&Grey offer covers the whole communications spectrum, from branding to on-line and offline retail. It’s a unique offer, not just in this region. With our deep understanding of the retail process we have already proven that we can come up with effective solutions for different markets. This partnership will speed up our growth and development.”

“It isn’t often that you discover an agency with such a unique, design inspired and holistic vision for communications in today’s marketplace”, said Alain Groenendaal, President and CEO of Grey Europe. “I am incredibly excited about the opportunities for the Bruketa&Žinić&Grey team to add capabilities and value to our clients in the Grey network both in Europe and beyond.”

Nikola Bubanj is excited about the opportunities for the employees of the merged organization. “At Grey we have always focused on culture, talent, and flawless execution. As we come together, our capabilities will be broader and deeper and teams will be able to work on different, and larger, pieces of business like shopper, branding & design, retail and e-commerce. We’ve got a bigger canvas to work on now.”
