S7 Airlines

Russia. Where the cold is cool!

Agency: Leo Burnett


There are many stereotypes about Russia – bears on the streets, vodka, nuclear power plants, unfriendly people and many others, which often scare off foreigners. To dispel these myths and increase the popularity of S7 Airlines’ international routes from Europe to Russia, Leo Burnett Moscow created an interactive print, using a non-traditional printing technique with thermochromic ink. As the “Russia. Where the cold is cool!” print, illustrated with Russian stereotypes, is placed in a freezer, at a certain temperature the special thermochromic ink will appear. The illustration will then gain a whole new meaning, contrary to what was first seen. It is with this unconventional method that Leo Burnett Moscow is communicating the main idea of the campaign – to see the real Russia, you need real Russian frost.

This professional campaign titled 'Russia. Where the cold is cool!' was published in Russia in May, 2012. It was created for the brand: S7 Airlines, by ad agency: Leo Burnett. This Direct medium campaign is related to the Transport industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted about 10 years ago.
