Ultimate Edge Communications creates best Christmas ad of 2018 for RedBalloon

Ultimate Edge Communications has achieved the perfect balance to deliver Australia’s most-effective Christmas campaign of 2018. 

Cubery, a tech-driven research and insights agency, has tested the effectiveness of 13 leading Christmas campaigns and discovered this festive season, one ad stands head and shoulders above the others. They made a list, checked it twice and named our RedBalloon “Break with Tradition” campaign as the most effective Christmas ad of the year, announced by Mumbrella on 13/12/18. 

When it comes to Christmas, it can be a fine balancing act between delivering effective messaging and reinforcing the festive emotion. Phil Toppi of Cubery says ”The RedBalloon campaign proves that both are possible and – when done right – can be an extremely potent combination.”

So what is the secret to the ad’s success? We created the ad from the idea that when it comes to gifts, experiences are much more memorable than material things. After all, you remember things you’ve done more than the objects you’ve acquired.

This strong message is delivered in a tongue-in-cheek style, complete with larger-than-life slow-motion reactions. Ultimate Edge Communication’s Creative Director Elliott Layland says “It was important to stay true to the RedBalloon brand by bringing the humour and the fun embedded within the company’s playful DNA.”

Ultimate Edge worked closely with RedBalloon to align with the brand’s business objectives, while also challenging the consumer to think differently about the many amazing gifts available from RedBalloon.

As a result, ‘Break with Tradition’ makes for a memorable advertisement indeed, etching itself in the minds of viewers during the busy festive season. Aleisha McCall, Founder of Ultimate Edge Communications, said, “In this campaign, we put the gift-buyer front and centre as the hero of the piece – and so the gift-giving moment is brought to life in a fun, fresh way.”

This ad was created by the talented creative team at Ultimate Edge Communications.
