It's Happening

Agency: Leo Burnett


In collaboration with Leo Burnett Toronto, Soft Citizen’s director duo, Aircastle, were saddled with breathing heightened pubescent life into the new awareness campaign acknowledging that the transit agency is going through a bit of an “awkward phase” as it attempts to complete a series of ambitious projects. While the campaign acknowledges consumer frustration with the progress of some Metrolinx projects, it’s getting its fair share of attention for not backing down on a playful creative strategy using that familiar awkward teenage phase—braces, voices breaking, the first blooming of facial hair—as an analogy for Metrolinx’s growing pains as it works to create a better transit system for the GTA.

This professional campaign titled 'It's Happening' was published in Canada in February, 2020. It was created for the brand: Metrolinx, by ad agency: Leo Burnett. This Film medium campaign is related to the Transport industry and contains 4 media assets. It was submitted almost 4 years ago.
