Arnold Scores at One Show

BOSTON Havas’ Arnold placed among the top winners at the annual One Club for Art & Copy’s One Show, held in New York last Friday.

Arnold won nine One Show pencils for work that included ads for Volkswagen and the American Legacy Foundation. Volkswagen’s “Squares,” which shows various square objects and then touts the round Beetle, picked up two gold pencils. “Bubble Boy,” depicting an office drone inspired by a Beetle, won a gold pencil, and the VW campaign, which includes “Chain Reaction” showing a series of smiles resulting from seeing a Beetle, won a gold pencil. Two VW magazine ads, “Beach” and “Mountains,” each won a silver pencil. Arnold’s American Legacy TV and print ads, including one likening carcinogens in cigarettes to material found in dog waste, picked up three bronze pencils. (The shop share that work with Maxxcom shop Crispin Porter + Bogusky, Miami). Arnold in Toronto won a silver for a radio ad for the Canadian Psychiatric Research Foundation.

Crispin Porter + Bogusky was the big winner at the show, taking home best of show honors for its Mini USA work in the branded integration category. The shop also garnered 10 gold, six silver and seven bronze pencils for ads on behalf of Mini, Bell Helmets, American Legacy and the Florida Department of Health. Mini work alone won eight gold pencils, including one in the newly created innovative marketing category.

CP+B’s work in the branded integration category included outdoor displays that incorporate life-size palm trees and words that seem to bleed into other billboards, installations at airports of extra-large trash cans and newspaper boxes to emphasize the small size of the Mini, magazine ads and two TV spots. “Bulldog” shows a bulldog sniffing a Mini and “This Is America” presents a British bobby chasing down an American Mini.

Mini work also earned a gold pencil in the first annual innovative marketing category for “Ride,” in which the car is mounted on a base outside of a supermarket to resemble the horses that children ride for a quarter. In the coin slot on the Mini, however, the actual price of the car was listed. In addition, the automaker won the One Show’s Advertiser of the Year Award.
