– MISSION –
Show people North Stradbroke Island is a different world.
But what’s really interesting is that 73.5% of people that visit North Stradbroke Island come back to visit again, again and again. Mainly because once they actually visit us, they realise it’s a different world.
Where a trip becomes tradition
Our creative campaign showcases that North Stradbroke Island’s stunning scenery, great climate and friendly locals always charm people back to the Island – making it more than just a one off trip, but a holiday tradition.
BRAND IDENTITY + REBRAND
Our first task was to work with our digital partner, Reborn in Sydney to develop an entirely new brand and marketing strategy.
This then informed the brief for the design team at Bonsta to create a new visual identity for the island. Part of this process was a new word-mark, iconography and brand system for the island's marketing team to rollout across all channels - website, social platforms, digital add placements, press, OOH, signage, animation and TVCs.
We launched the campaign with a 45 sec TV commercial and online film depicting three of the island's key reasons for turning a trip into tradition - stunning coastlines, landscapes and the indigenous traditional experience.
To maintain an authenticity throughout the process we utilised real phone conversations with regular visitors to the island in the TV commercials. We then wrote and produced the sound track with local musicians.
We are now working closely with the island operators - hoteliers, restauranteurs and other tourism operators on the island - to help them achieve 'no vacancy'.
