Work Better

Agency: AKQA


Work Better, a campaign to inspire German businesses to embrace new technology, revisits its signature character, “Markus”, on a tour of the pandemic-altered working world.
Anchored again with a 60-second TVC, this year’s campaign expands the story from focussing on changes to possibilities, drawing on cultural insights, humor, and rich storytelling. As a character, Markus serves as a creative mirror, reflecting back elements of German culture, mindset, and values to speak directly to the local audience. Through Markus, HP Deutschland has been able to connect with the German audience. And likewise, the character helps the audience connect with the brand.

This professional campaign titled 'Work Better' was published in Germany in September, 2021. It was created for the brand: HP, by ad agency: AKQA. This Film medium campaign is related to the Electronics, Technology industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted over 2 years ago by Sr. Art Director: Andre Blanco of AKQA.
