Media Idea

The award honors media led ideas that are powerful enough to become the genesis of the communications program itself.




In 2021, Lunchables launched its “Built to Be Eaten” brand platform—which resonated, but results were just OK. In 2022, we evolved the platform from a passive message to an active, kid-first idea—“LUNCHABUILD THIS!”—using contextual media placements to spread epic Lunchables building inspiration in kids’ worlds, from buses to bike racks to zoos. The campaign sparked kids’ creativity, behavior, request and drove huge results for back-to-school 2022, including a 38% sales increase, +10% purchase frequency, and drove category share and overall growth, attracting 2.3 million new Lunchables households.

Swipe Night

Tinder is a dating app GenZ grew up on and took for granted. We set out to re-energize Tinder, by re-energizing its iconic Swipe. Enter Swipe Night, a first-of-its-kind interactive miniseries where instead of swiping on people, you enter a first-person POV, apocalyptic adventure where you swipe to make high-stakes, highly-revealing choices to survive. The choices reveal something about you and are used to pool you with users who made similar choices. The activation was a cultural moment, recording 6.7 million total players and over 3.1 billion earned impressions.
