A bit more about the campaign:
During 2016, Cyprus experienced one of the worst fires in its history. Hellenic Bank and MasterCard wanted to create a digital campaign which promoted their action to reforest affected areas and at the same time reward 5 of the participants with a vacation to the tropical Maldives. The “Green” destination of Maldives was chosen after the reforesting theme.
The creative challenge was to create a triple message that demonstrated the commercial aspect of using a MasterCard, reforesting, and the competition. First, the custom word “ReTree” was created and written with custom typography. Then the Maldives vacation was incorporated with a stylised palm in the logo sentence “ReTree Cyprus & Win a Trip”. Several retail objects, were “dressed” in a tree pattern. This was done to symbolise that by purchasing these everyday items people help regrow some of the forests lost in the fires. Four visuals were promoted in Social Media, while the main visual was used for Google Adwords and Local Portals Banners. A landing page was also created to divert traffic.
