The challenge

To create a consistent application of the brand throughout its global territories, CUP created the Cambridge Marketing Portal; an online resource that holds all marketing communications collateral in one place. The purpose is to make life easier for staff by holding all templates, logos, and brand guidelines in one place, with all resource assets easy to download and use.

The aim was to prevent departments in other countries from creating their own collateral, as well as to ease the pressure at head office where communications have to be supplied and created on demand.

The Honest approach

Internal communication needed to be soft and not appear to be a ‘policing' operation. The activity had to focus on the benefits of the portal, such as time-saving and ease of use.

It was agreed that a video would be a good way to promote the portal due to the level of information and demonstrations that needed to be included.

Our solution was to create a quirky film to appeal to the audience and to breakdown potential barriers with employees.

The Creative


We created a fun illustrative style, where a ‘hole-in-the-wall' (portal) opened up in the person's office when they needed any marketing support. The idea was to demonstrate how a user could jump into the ‘world of brand communications' where they could access everything they needed. We matched this with a funky soundtrack and a voiceover that was engaging and warm.

The 90-second film was then emailed out to all staff as part of its launch.

Wow, this is great!
I must share it
