Milk Makes A Splash On South William St.
As part of a new campaign, the National Dairy Council set up shop on South William Street for a few days. The Complete Natural pop up café launched on the 8th of November and was opened for five days in total. The pop up was offering the perfect range of dairy based products, from gourmet coffees, fruit smoothies, milkshakes to frozen yogurt- and the good news – it was all for free!
With some funky dairy themed interiors, the café included a chill out zone, milk carton inspired booths, a farm inspired art gallery dedicated to cows no less and a special selfie area so you too could mark the occasion.
A few famous faces dropped by the café to lend their support, with Made In Chelsea Stars Binky Felsted and Josh Patterson, Louis Walsh and of course brand ambassadors, the Kearney Brothers all in attendance.
Our Innovation team was delighted to be involved with this experiential activity in association with Initiative. The café was a huge success and saw over 5,500 visitors pass through the doors over the five days.
The café was part of a major new marketing campaign which saw NDC run a heavyweight OOH campaign. With the emergence and rise of alternative milks, the campaign encouraged a younger demographic to eat and drink more dairy.

It’s Good to Live on OOH
Health insurance provider, Laya Healthcare has launched a new brand positioning campaign and has incorporated an OOH burst into its media plan. The ‘Its Good to Live’ campaign is all about embracing life, living in the moment and enjoying it, safe in the knowledge that Laya Healthcare is looking after you, always.
Laya strives to be more than just a health insurer but rather a health partner who encourages and empowers their customers to live healthy and happy lives. The campaign launched on Wednesday 25th October.
The Outdoor element is an extensive part of the integrated campaign displayed on predominately large formats as well as Bus Shelter 6 Sheets, dPods (Commuter) and Metropanels to aid reach and build coverage quickly.
The bold, fresh, fun and colourful creative really lends itself to OOH advertising and portrays the brand to maximum effect. The striking design is sure to stand out.
In addition to the OOH campaign, a brand experiential campaign was activated to coincide with the launch of the campaign. A series of hopscotches hopped up on the streets of Dublin on the 27th and 28th October that encouraged people to jump in and experience how it’s good to live.
The activation formulated a piece of video content for Laya Healthcare, which has been promoted on its digital channels. Experiential activations are a natural extension to the OOH medium and adds an additional dimension to its role and brings the creative into the real-world.
