Personal invite

My friend and former colleague celebrates his big Five-O this month. True to style, he wanted an invite that reflects him, his passion for house music and the wild party he is throwing in the Soho area of London.

We decided to revisit the font from that poster era, Futura, and design it as a credit card so it would manage to survive the night. We printed on plastic and embossed the names on to each card.

The result is a true walk down memory lane and made for a truly unique invite.

Taiwan Tourism Bureau India market film and photography production

We were in Taiwan for a week for filming and photographing on the behalf of Taiwan Tourism Bureau for the India market, and here are a few snap shots from that week.

We managed to tick off Taipei, Sun Moon Lake and Taitung, so it was truly a busy week, but we still managed to enjoy the sights and sounds of the real Taiwan.

The results of this trip I am sure will look great.

Our first issue of Audi Magazine is now printed and delivered. The 128-page issue is packed with premium automotive and lifestyle articles, beautifully designed in a very contemporary way. Making use of creative white space and allowing the visuals to take the centre stage. The cover is printed on 250 gram Woodfree paper with the Audi emblem in Spot UV, that gives the cover a exclusive and premium look and feel. The magazine aims to build loyalty with the premium brand’s customers and deliver added value to ownership.

Our role was to provide full scope of editorial, photographic and design services for both print and online.

Promoting Taiwan with a TV broadcast travel programme

We partnered up with Places We Go in Australia to make two 20-minutes programmes on Taiwan. Places We Go is in its tenth year of production, and founder, host, writer, director, blogger Jennifer Adams was sent in to Taipei as her starting point for her around the island trip. During the trip she blogged and did live Facebook broadcasts as a teasers for the upcoming show. The combined written article on her trip can be found here.

Take time to enjoy our two episodes too while you’re here.

Health Affairs

A quarterly magazine produced for Quality HealthCare Medical Services in Hong Kong. With its focus on healthy lifestyle and wellbeing, it was also packed with interviews, recipes and tips on sport activities for both young and old. The magazine was in its original form a bilingual title, but evolved over the time to a Chinese-only. I used a three column grid for the templates, and tried to use graphical elements to break up the articles and page flagging. The magazine is printed on Woodfree paper stock, 250gms for the cover and 100gms for the inside pages.

Your CapitaLetter

CapitaLand Commercial Trust (CCT) needed to communicate news and updates to their office tenants and prospects. The newsletter mixes past and/or incoming news, events and activities, together with other lifestyle news. We decided for a wood free paper stock folded with a accordion fold to make it easy to display the content in an effective way. We provided research, ideation, copywriting, design of the newsletter and their eDM.

The Little Big Book

Avis needed a roadshow giveaway for their two brands Avis and Budget. So we put our brains to good use and came up with a tiny perfect-bound pocket book featuring iconic locations around the world. Places that offers highly scenic views on the way there, and an unforgettable experience that you want to share with friends and colleagues. The book used a Scodix print on the cover to make it stand out and add that all important texture.

Integrated campaign for Taiwan Tourism Bureau

NewBase Content produced an end-to-end integrated campaign for Taiwan Tourism Bureau (TTB) targeting prospects in Australia and New Zealand. As a new target market where Taiwan had very little customer recognition, we proposed a multi-platform 6-month campaign across digital (social media buys and programmatic), radio, OOH and print (advertising and advertorial).

With limited existing creative assets available (and nothing tailored for the Aus/NZ audience), a key part of our campaign involved bespoke content development across the various media.

Following market research, NewBase Content devised an original campaign called “So Different. So Taiwan!”. This concept derived from the fact that while many of Taiwan’s attractions have similar sounding counterparts in Australia, the Taiwanese versions are incredibly different and more exotic.

We shot two videos on location in Taiwan, each cut into a series of shorter edits for distribution via social media channels. Other deliverables included radio ad scripts, advertorial copywriting and design, as well as web banner, print and OOH ad design and copywriting. NewBase Content was also responsible for social media management, writing posts for TTB’s AUs/NZ pages on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

Facebook followers grew tenfold after only 3 months, passing our 10,000 target half way into the campaign. In the first 3 months of the campaign, Facebook and Instagram page post ads achieved 4.3 million impressions, while Programmatic ATS (various standard banners) gained 45,000 clicks based on an estimated 56.25 million impressions.

Destination Singapore

Singapore Tourism Board needed to engage with their international travel trade experts, global travel agencies and MICE partners to inform them about the plentiful options and many facilities that Singapore has to offer to Singapore’s inbound tourism.

We created a 230-page travel manual, packed with expert travel and lifestyle content and hand-drawn maps of the popular areas with highlights of the most popular sightseeing spots.
