29 October 2019
For its new Cinema and Out-of-Home campaign, Frank and Honest is drawing on its commitments to sustainability: how it sources its coffee from Rainforest Alliance Certified Farms that benefit forests, communities and wildlife. However, sending a film crew to South America to create an ad campaign that highlighted these efforts was deemed to be bad for the environment! Instead, Frank and Honest took the decision to fake the footage, shooting in garden centres and paddling pools in Rialto instead of flying to Rio, highlighting its sustainability message with a sustainably shot ad campaign!
Thinkhouse, the full service, independent, youth marketing agency has created the new campaign for Frank and Honest, which is owned by the Musgrave Group.
