Creativity Fuelled by Curiosity
We’re a curious bunch here at Owens DDB. Curious about your brand, your business, your consumer’s behaviour. We question everything. Because questions unearth truths. And truths lead to compelling creative communications. And compelling creative communications grow brands and businesses.
The Irish Times
The way we digest news is evolving. More and more people are migrating from paper to digital.
But why would anyone pay for an online newspaper when you can get it for free on other sites?
We reckon the quality of our news, opinions and analysis is what separates us from our competition.
That’s why we always feature one of our writers in our ads. Because at the end of the day, you are what you read.
Interesting fact. The first Volkswagen to be built outside of Germany was here, in Ireland, 62 years ago. We’ve had an affinity with the brand ever since.
But here’s something that really gives Volkswagen an edge: They own their own bank. Doesn’t sound like it’s such a big deal until you try to buy a car. Because when you own your own bank you can guarantee hassle free low cost finance.
What is it that makes your brand different?
What’s interesting about the rear wall of a car dealership in Ballymount, asked no-one ever.
Well, that’s not strictly true. We asked. And what we found interesting was the fact that it backed onto the M50 access road.
Where loads of cars drive by, hour after hour, day after day.
What better place to draw attention to the presence of a new Skoda Dealership?
Maxol are all about quality. From the fuel they sell to the food they serve. To us, that was interesting. But not as interesting as the fact that many of Maxol’s stores are owned and run by local business people.
Because if the owner is part of the community, it’s no surprise they look after their customers so well.
And the product experience backs this up.
With Maxol, you’ll always come out feeling better than when you went in.
The Irish Times
General Election 2016. The Irish Times are gearing up to go hard on the biggest story of the year. Their coverage will be unprecedented. And our job is to make people aware of this.
One of the team mused aloud: “I wonder what’s going on inside Enda’s head right now?” It was an interesting question. And we were curious. So we asked some of The Irish Times’ political writers what they thought. And their answers led to this:
Great ideas always have the brand at the core of the idea, as Bill Bernbach used to say.
