BRUISES CAN BE GOOD – REEBOK INDIA
Rebook and Isobar together addressed the issue of women safety with this campaign for Women’s Day. Reebok India wanted to extend its message of #FitToFight and ensure that every woman exhibits the fighting spirit.
Led by a social experiment, Reebok brought a group of people face-to-face with a bruised woman. Majority of the audience claimed her bruises to be a reason of physical violence, bringing to light a cruel truth – violence against women is so common in India that a bruised woman is always seen as a victim of injustice.
The end of the experiment revealed the protagonist’s identity – a mixed martial artist. Featuring her, the brand showed that for a woman who is #FitToFight, her bruises are a mark of her strength and underlined a need for self-defence education for women.
THE BLIND FAITH UPGRADE – HOTEL RAMADA
With this campaign Isobar and Hotel Ramada address the issue hotel accommodation facilities for the visually-impaired.
During the annual Urs Mubarak festival, thousands of visually-impaired pilgrims visit the shrine Ajmer Shareef in Ajmer. Since the number of pilgrims and footfall at the hotel increase drastically during this period, Hotel Ramada sensed the void and wanted to cater to this segment of their consumers.
On this occasion pilgrims were introduced to the Blind Faith Upgrade and Hotel Ramada established itself as a customer-first brand. The Upgrade came with an easy-to-assemble kit that can convert any hotel room into a visually-impaired-friendly room, without making any infrastructural changes at the property. One-of-a-kind experience for the vision-impaired, the Upgrade ensured a comfortable stay for them with zero dependency on anyone.
