The Campaign
Our idea was to make the commercial a gift on its own. An artistic film, which stands out not only by the way it’s done, but also by its powerful moral. The insight: Instead of stuff give the most precious thing you have: time.
Creative Execution
OTTO launched a unique animated shortfilm with a strong message. A film, that does not bother people with selling products, but instead, delivers a relevant insight during the most stressful time of the year: Give the most precious thing you have. Time.
The core was the digital platform #ZeitGeschenke. Here we create a tool that gives people concrete inspiration, how and where they can give time.
