Challenge

Durex had already created its “Savvy Lover” platform. It existed as stickers and t-shirts but nobody really had an idea of who or what a “Savvy Lover” is and how Durex fits in their life.

Insight

Being part of a couple is not just about what you say and do directly to your partner. It’s about every little thing you do to keep them interested in you.

Idea

Being a “Savvy Lover” is about respect, love and all those little things you do to make your relationship work. We want to highlight those little things and show that safe sex with Durex is a part of that.

Savvy Lovers deserve Durex.

We wanted to show all the cute and quirky things that couples do for each other. In TV it’s about couples admitting to all the little things they do and why their partner deserves safe and pleasurable sex with Durex.

One of the ideas we grasped onto in social was that there should always be a reason to have sex. The Mayan Apocalypse was one of them. These wildpostings and social posts offered up a few ideas on how to bring on the end of the world with a bang.

Valentines day is a given. We played on a bit of nostalgia and created cards that look and feel like cards you might give in middle school, but they are definitely much more adult. All of this of course led to contest with a chance to win a trip to Jamaica.

Over the summer we had a contest to find the sexiest place in Canada and in the World using Facebooks polling function. The results were posted with special postcards from those places.
