Poster of the Year 2019 – «Kein Tier im Visier»

According to the Guinness World Records, Hiltl is the world's oldest vegetarian restaurant. During the 2019 hunting season, the campaign was right on target: At Hiltl, no animal suffers for what we put on our plate. Four visuals appealed to the public's taste: a roe deer, a wild boar, a hare, and a stag. Conclusion: A creative bull’s eye!

Suva shares its success with all insured businesses: with an extraordinary 170 million premium discount. This message was presented in a novel way: with two helmets reminiscent of a Kinder Surprise Egg. The helmets were not a random choice: the Swiss construction industry is insured with Suva.

Silver 2019

Commercial Local and Regional Silver 2019 – «Powerpoint-Landschaften»

Seminar hotel Hof de Planis, at an altitude of 1,280 metres in Graubünden, is an oasis away from the hectic pace of daily life. To bring it to the attention of managers in the lowlands, we used their favourite tool, PowerPoint, to recreate the alpine setting around the hotel. A specific visual was developed for each season, for use at and in the vicinity of business fairs.

Bronze 2019

Commercial Local and Regional Bronze 2019 – «Al Mulinetto»

The small but perfectly formed “Al Mulinetto” vineyard surprises again this year, with a very artistic campaign. The dramatization of the always limited editions of Merlot, Grappa and Nocino drew on mythological creatures. Merlot, for example, is as rare as an encounter with a dragon. Or, with a run of just 450 bottles, Nocino is as rare as running into a sea monster. The illustrations were painted by famous Dutch illustrator Silvan Steenbrink, in partnership with Art Box, Amsterdam. The three visuals are used as posters.

SWISS passengers who prefer not to eat meat can enjoy vegetarian dishes by Hiltl – on all intercontinental flights from Switzerland, in all three classes. Using typical luggage labels, the campaign cleverly linked popular Swiss Airlines destinations with Hiltl specialities. Numerous motifs were used.

According to the Guinness World Records, Hiltl is the world's oldest vegetarian restaurant. With 12 punchy text posters, Hiltl evoked its roots in 1898, when vegetarians were still an oddity. In addition to the printed posters, the visuals were presented on handmade enamel signs, the original advertising medium at that time.

Public Service Gold 2019 – «Eins mit Einsamen»

Every year, the Salvation Army runs a nationwide poster campaign to accompany its Christmas donation drive. This year, the focus of the campaign was a lonely elderly lady who receives help and support from the Salvation Army.
To show how close the relationship is between the Salvation Army and the people it helps, creative agency Spinas Civil Voices designed a poster that makes you look twice. Oneness with others is conveyed by a puzzling image, in which 2 people “share” one head.

Public Service Silver 2019 – «ABBA»

Zurich Public Transport brings people conveniently to concerts, musicals and other events. This poster communicates this by making novel use of text: from A to B, and back again, gives us the cult pop band: ABBA. There was a static and an animated version of the witty poster.

Bronze 2019

Public Service Bronze 2019 – «Ja zum Waffengesetz»

The poster dramatizes the generic, but verifiable statement that the more weapons we have at our disposal, the more we will resort to using them. The skull, which is made up of lots of weapons, is therefore the logical depiction of this fact but, with its unexpected use of colour, the visual has a tongue-in-cheek element to it.

Public Service Nomination 2019 – «Keine Lust auf Qual»

No animal wants to suffer pain. This is the message of the Tier im Recht 2019 campaign. It was dramatized in an eye-catching way, by putting a cat, a dog, a cow and a parrot in BDSM costumes. Of course, no animal was harmed in any way: all four visuals were created on a computer, using sophisticated CGI techniques.

The image campaign portrayed five different people who are wheelchair-bound through no fault of their own, highlighting the fact that it could be any one of us.

Public Service Nomination 2019 – «Verkehrstafel-Typo»

“Changing to public transport is worthwhile” has long been the claim of VBZ’s advertising campaign. For one thing, anyone who switches to tram and bus in the city of Zurich is spared all the road signs you have to watch out for in the car. So, this time, the VBZ slogan was conveyed in a specially-developed, eye-catching road sign typeface.

The media is the message: Articulated bus hinges look remarkably similar to the the moving bellows on an accordion. As such, they can be used not only as an advertising medium, but also as a quirky component of the visual. Using the “Traffic Board” as well as social media, this approach achieved wide reach. The campaign was a resounding success.

At Red Bull Media World at the Swiss Museum of Transport in Lucerne, visitors can use virtual reality, augmented reality and other technologies to experience the world of new media. But how do you let passers-by in Lucerne's city centre know that these exciting experiences even exist? The answer: by developing an interactive DOOH poster which, for five weeks, puts passers-by in the shoes of stratos jumper Felix Baumgartner. Using the latest iOS technology, a camera tracks the movements of people in front of the screen, while a digital mirror image puts them in a spacesuit. The whole thing ends with a cliffhanger: if you want the full VR stratos jump experience, complete with the initial leap, visit Red Bull Media World.
