Tonight (5th October) American Express unveils a new TV ad which marks a radical departure for the brand. The animated ad, entitled "Blue Dot" and created by Amex's agency of record, Ogilvy & Mather, is part of the acclaimed "Realise The Potential" campaign, which launched in October 2009. The campaign is based on a core belief that the world would be a better place if more of the untapped potential in it was set free. It marks a significant and striking departure from previous campaigns for the brand (and for the financial industry in general) in both its ideal and its bold look and feel. The campaign aims to get consumers to re-appraise the brand by helping them realise the untapped potential in themselves, the world around them and in the card. . The latest ad carries on this idea, and in a mere 30 seconds neatly outlines the American Express brand philosophy: inspirational as well as aspirational, likeable yet offering superior service - the perfect card for those who want to lead a richer life. As with all "RTP" advertising, this latest ad uses bold, colourful graphics created by O&M creatives Dennis Lewis and Andy Bird, and does not feature cardholders. Previous spots in the campaign have focused on specific benefits and product services offered by American Express, while this is the first pure "Brand Belief" TVC to be aired. The ad will air nationally until the end of the year. Media planning and buying for the campaign is by Mindshare. The campaign runs in five ...

It's not everyday that the industry's toughest critics and change agents are given an open platform to challenge how a leading agency works in today's changing landscape, but that's exactly what Ogilvy & Mather is doing in its "Inside a Big Dumb Agency" panel during Advertising Week. The multimedia session features randomly generated questions filmed with industry figures Jonah Bloom, Cindy Gallop, Lynne D Johnson, George Parker, Mike Lebowitz, Jonah Peretti, John Winsor, Adam Wohl and others. Responding to the hard-hitting questions is Ogilvy's leadership team of John Seifert, Steve Simpson and Lars Bastholm. The questions posed go to the heart of how agencies today must adapt to new realities and pointedly call out practices of large agencies vs. those of smaller and newer companies. The panel will be held on Tuesday, September 28 th at 3pm at the New York Times Center. For ticket information visit www.advertisingweek.com

We built a complete house inside the agency's theater space using all IKEA products -- complete with welcome mat and mailbox stuffed with IKEA catalogs. The front door opens to a living room from which you can pass through to a kitchen, children's bedroom and master bedroom. There is even an upstairs attic. Take a look at how we built the IKEA House.
Luma Animation and Ogilvy Johannesburg teamed up to create one of the first Stereoscopic 3D Cinema commercials in South Africa for the DStv brand. Directed by Paul Meyer for Luma, this groundbreaking 65" fully animated commercial was conceptualised by the creatives at Ogilvy Johannesburg: Art Director Chantelle dos Santos, Copywriter Dan Parmenter and Creative Director Jonathan Beggs. With an extremely tight schedule, it took a huge effort from every team member at Luma, as the animators and compositors pulled out all the stops to bring the project in on time. With up to 15 people working on the job literally every artist on this job put in 150% - and it shows on screen. "We could not have pulled it off without this level of dedication and committment from everyone in the team" - Paul Meyer (Director). The commercial tells the story of a little girl who visits a balloon artist in a park. The artist becomes increasingly more exasperated and desperate as he tries to impress the little girl, who does not seem at all interested in his dazzling array of balloon creations. "It was a real privilege for Luma to win this board, it feels more like an animated short film than a TV spot and it looks so good in 3D on the big screen". Graham Pfuhl, Marketing and Sales Director of DStv is delighted with the ad. "DStv is all about entertainment and 3D depicts that entertainment in a very special way". The commercial will be flighted in 3D cinemas nationwide throughout June and supported ...

Sometimes we just need an introduction, an invite to start the conversation with our sales prospect. In this video, we show how to sell a brick to OgilvyOne's very own CEO, Brian Fetherstonhaugh. Our goal was to pique our prospect's interest enough to warrant a face-to-face meeting before actually making our big pitch.... in reality, if we did get in front of Brian for a coffee we'd give ourselves a 1 in 5 shot of actually getting a signed Purchase Order ;) Enjoy the show and a huge thank you to Chris Hedin and Max Thomas at Lowery Street Media for a super collaboration on this project. In addition to moonlighting as the devil, our lead actor Mark Dorosz has spent 10 years in the cut throat world of B2B sales working with fortune 500 companies in the hi-tech and banking sector.
New ad from Ogilvy & Mather Advertising for the Ford S-Max. Breaks over the bank holiday weekend. No other vehicle makes free-spirited people so empowered t than the New Ford S-MAX. Written and art-directed by two of our star creatives, Mike Watson and Jon Morgan, with Camilla Herberstein as creative partner. Music is by Si Begg and is called "Bottled". The director was Noah Harris, one of adland's hottest. The commercial utilises state-of-the-art digital projection techniques to adorn the sexy curves of the newly designed S-max with dynamic images of high-adrenalin sporting action. Rather unsurprisingly, its a highly technical affair that required a huge amount of research and development to pull off. The first phase required the sourcing and shooting the variety of activities including micro-lights, racing bikes and and a custom built wave-machine, all choreographed to fit the appropriate section of the car. Much like a logo on a football pitch, the projected images are completely warped and out of proportion unless the camera is in the exact correct position to read them, so many hours were then painstakingly spent manipulating the images with 3D previsualizations to perfectly fit the sculptural forms of the car. The final phase of production was to physically project these manipulated images in realtime upon the car and film the performance.

Brian Fetherstonhaugh, Chairman and CEO of Ogilvy One, discusses with John Mulligan of SEO-PR how external marketing agencies and in-house marketers have to be their own advocates to sell a search program. Even though the search marketing industry is doing great, it will never fulfill its potential until search gets squarely on the agenda of Fortune 1000 CMO's. Worldwide, there is only about 1000 CMO's at the top companies that spend all the money and shape the marketing industry, but unfortunately search is not on appropriately featured on their agenda. While there are some CMO's spending money on search, search is not their priority. Fetherstonhaugh believes that the industry needs to make search a priority in order to shape the future. Anybody in the company who is a enthusiast and a believer of search, no matter where they are on the corporate ladder, should speak the language of the CMO, enlightening them on the capabilities/profits search can bring to a company. This is done by looking a the whole customer journey, and establishing the crucial role search can play in the overall process.
