From spins to heartbeats: Genesis reimagines energy

Everything is energy according to a new campaign for Genesis by Shine, that gives the intangible idea of energy a tangible definition.

Featuring a montage of moments in a young girl’s life, the campaign, part of the ‘With you. For you’ campaign, aims to help New Zealanders think differently about energy what it is; where it comes from, and how it can be managed and used.

The spot is called ‘Reimagine’ and shows that every spin, heartbeat, sound and touch, among other things, are energy.

Justine Fairlie, general manager of brand and marketing at Genesis, says the ‘Reimagine’ platform enables it to tell customers how to better control, manage and understand their energy use in an authentic, inspiring and emotive way.

Chris Schofield, ECD at Shine, adds it loves the thought that everything in the world is energy, and the possibilities for harnessing and using that energy are endless.

The new creative is a move away from previous work in the ‘With you. For you’, that was about showing New Zealanders how Genesis can put them in control of their energy.

It turned customers into chief energy officers to showcase how they can control how much energy they generate and use.

How is this still a thing? The simple excitement of inflatable advertising

Our advertising landscape continues to rotate around the growth of digital and how digital can be used to further capture the attention of viewers. Yet there is one type of adverting so simple, so primal, so no-nonsense that even in this computer-run society it has survived. We’re talking here about inflatable, or balloon, advertising.
