Results and Effectiveness
Within a short time, the 'culture' sticker became a collectible and DMAX viewers all over the country requested their personal copy. The feedback from the client and many viewers: the stickers became a nice gadget for men and resulted in many TV evenings with the DMAX programme. Even though women, girlfriends and roommates were present.

Creative Execution
We invented an educational TV channel. Or, at least, the logo of 'culture' (how we called it). The shape and colour of this logo reminds of a famous franco-german cultural channel. So at first sight every woman was supposed to think: "Oh, how cultural!" The 'culture' stickers were sent by mail to DMAX viewers. And distributed on post cards in many bars and clubs in Germany’s biggest cities. So the campaign was not only adressed to existing viewers but also to new viewers who, till now, hesitated watching TV shows with explosions, motorbikes and trucks.

Insights, Strategy & the Idea
DMAX is Germany's TV channel for men only. The brief was to generate awareness for the programme with a small budget. Many men live with their wife, girlfriend or female roommate. In case they share a TV, these men can not easily watch DMAX, because girls aren't that interested in explosions and motorcycles. We wanted to encourage them to stick to our programme. For the client it helped to raise the awareness of DMAX. And for the audience it was great not hiding their enthusiasm for men's TV anymore. And fool their girls with the 'culture logo' while watching men's TV.
