South Bank London Winter Campaign

Cultural placemaking on London’s South Bank

Posters, Flyers and Online Ads for South Bank London

Campaign

South Bank London came to us for a winter campaign, to communicate their status as a cultural destination in the heart of London.

Video for the South Bank Homepage

During the summer, London’s South Bank is a busy, bustling destination. In the long summer evenings, the huge number of cultural attractions feel joined up by large crowds. The riverside is packed with people, enjoying the space and the variety of food stalls, bars and catering outlets.

But in the winter, as the nights draw in, people retreat indoors and the venues can feel isolated and spread out. People can stop thinking of the area as a cultural destination. Our brief was to help to change that perception and to attract the demographic group known as ‘Urban arts eclectic’, who are only 3% of the population but represent a much larger percentage of cultural spending.

We started the process with a flurry of brainstorming, with the whole team getting involved. We knew the South Bank team wanted to move away from their previous reliance on illustration, and to concentrate on an eye-catching photographic campaign.

The theme of Bright Nights was taken forward from those initial sketches. This idea reflects the exciting cultural offer in the winter (with many venues featuring light installations), and linked in well with the first ever Lumiere event that had been programmed during that season.

Once the concept was agreed, we commissioned the photographer, Matthew Andrews. He managed the late night shoots, wonderfully.

We knew that we wanted photographs set in a variety of settings, some indoors and some outside. So we arranged late night access to the roof of the National Theatre, the courtyard besides the OXO Tower and the Imperial War Museum.

Take a look behind the scenes on our shoots in this video.

The team at Cog were brilliant throughout our winter marketing campaign – from delivering a range of imaginative and workable concepts, to practical aspects such as finding photographers and setting up shoots. We had a really professional yet fun working relationship.

We selected images from the range created at the shoots. Focusing on pairs of people at each location, and finding the right balances of lighting, and awed expressions on our models faces.

With little time and no budget to find professional models, we called in favours from friends and relations. Our designer, Dan Cox even stepped in to feature in the shoots.

From the final approved photos, we created posters, flyers, online ads.

We were delighted with the results but perhaps not as pleased as Dan was when he saw his picture, featured in Time Out.
