Old is somewhat gold

THE only agency from Malaysia to win at the international Cannes 2018 was Hakuhodo, who took home a Bronze Lion.

“We can’t rest on our laurels now. Inspired by our recent wins, the creative teams in our Malaysia office are going for more accolades, both locally and globally,” said Hakuhodo Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia chief creative officer, Woon Hoh, on the success.

The esteemed agency, which has been in Malaysia for over 40 years, also picked up two “Pencils” at the recent D&AD Awards 2018. Looking back, just last year, the agency which was “unranked” in the local industry, took fifth placing at the 2017 Kancil Awards. Success followed as it took home two golds and a bronze at Asia’s Adfest 2018.

In the managing director’s seat at Hakuhodo Malaysia, since November 2017, is Ryusuke Oda. He is said to have gradually transformed the agency. “We have positioned ourselves as the Experience Leader – a philosophy that has helped us to create work that communicates on a human level and garners recognition on a global standpoint,” shared Oda.

THE inaugural Kancil Creative Festival to gather innovative minds across two fascinating days of creative stimulation

The Association of Accredited Advertising Agents of Malaysia (4A’s) will host its first Kancil Creative Festival this July 26 and 27. Held at Ruang by ThinkCity, KL, the creative festival themed “Celebrating humanity in creativity, technology and culture” will gather some of the most innovative minds across diverse backgrounds.

These include MP of Lembah Pantai Fahmi Fadzil; social documentary story-teller Bassam Tariq; founder of Dialogue in the Dark Steven Chan; artist and heritage activist Stella Soo; producer of 101 East at Al Jazeera; and others.

Visitors can expect exhibitions, mini-workshops, dialogue sessions and immersive experiences as well as talks from a line-up of 16 speakers from a variety of disciplines. Results of the recent “The 666 Young Director’s Challenge” will also be announced and the winners’ award-winning six-minute films showcased.

The aim of this festival: “To bring together people that are so seemingly different to discover their commonality so as to celebrate these differences that ironically makes us one,” said Kancil Creative Festival creative council chairman Alvin Teoh.

“The festival is designed to be inclusive so that the public at large are able to appreciate the type of work that taps into the beauty of the human experience, and hopefully inspires new compelling ideas in their lives,” he added.

“The festival not only breaks down barriers but embraces the power of the people in celebrating an evolving landscape of borderless creativity,” chimed in organising chairman of the festival Karthi Palanisamy.

Moreover, festival-goers will have access to the prestigious Kancil Awards Night where they can witness first-hand, compelling works from the most creative minds in the industry in Malaysia.

Five new categories are introduced this year – The Culture Kancils; Kancil for Good; The Innovation Kancils; The Effectiveness Kancils; and Production House of the Year.

Festival tickets are priced at RM2,600 for the public and RM2,200 for 4A’s members. A 10% discount is applicable for groups of five or more.

ROARing good fun

AFTER a month-long of viewing parties across the nation, Tiger Beer capped off World Cup frenzy with a roaring celebration deserving of the big game at The Square in Publika.

Footie fans arrived in droves to enjoy the finals between France and Croatia in style – on big screens over ice-cold beers. The excitement, however, started long before kick-off with a host of pre-game activities and promotions to get the ball rolling.

A crowd favourite was the Tiger Beer ROAR Machine, where fans had to roar with all their might and show off their football skills, winning a bottle of Tiger Beer on the house with a goal scored.

There were even bigger wins to score such as autographed photos of football stars, Tiger Beer jerseys and mini fridges and autographed football merchandise through other exciting and innovative games.

Besides activities, many guests got into the spirit with face paint. One lucky fan was also awarded the title as best dressed.

“It’s been a great tournament for football fans – full of surprises, passion and drama. No matter which team you ROARed for, Tiger Beer’s great football viewing parties have kept the excitement at a fever pitch all month long,” said Tiger Beer Malaysia marketing manager Pearly Lim.
