Havas London

Hello, we are Havas London

Over 200 of the world’s brightest and bravest, working in a place we call the Havas Village. Well, we say ‘Village’ – except imagine if your neighbours were some of the most connected, creative companies around, all brilliant in their own right but with one shared aim: to create work that makes a meaningful difference. For our clients, our colleagues and our culture. Like all good neighbours, at the Havas Village we leave our back doors open – always popping in to borrow skills, talent, brains, and even the odd cup of sugar. You get the idea.

Department for Education

Every Lesson Shapes a Life

Our teacher recruitment campaign for The Department for Education returned in January with an intimate, wide-ranging portrait of a day in the life of a teacher. Picking up where our launch campaign left off – which saw registrations for teacher recruitment surge 21% above target – it highlights the unique nature of the career and the transformative impact teachers can have on the lives of their pupils.

Durex

Real Sex Please

We launched a major new positioning and visual identity for Durex, railing against sexual taboos, stigmas and outdated, non-inclusive attitudes. A major shift for a 91-year old brand that’s used to talking about safety not sexual satisfaction.

Coors Light

Keep It Fresh

'Keep It Fresh' is a major new brand campaign and positioning for Coors Light in the UK. Championing freshness as an attitude, it launched with an epic, off-piste (literally) TV spot as well as OOH, social, digital, PR and a series of C4 idents.

Long Live the Local

Every day, three pubs in the UK close their doors for good – in part due to cripplingly high beer tax, three times higher than the EU average. Long Live the Local celebrates the important role pubs play in our local communities, our culture and our national identity. In 2018, the campaign called upon the Government to cut planned increases in beer duty and the result – a Government volte-face – speaks for itself. This round is on us.

Heinz

Beanz Meanz Vegan

We tweaked the iconic Heinz Beanz slogan to throw the (vegan) brand’s support behind everyone tackling Veganuary this year. OOH, press and social ads, as well as a limited edition can bearing the slogan 'Beanz Meanz Vegan' (available through Ocado), reminded Brits that the much-loved food staple is vegan too.

Care Sewn In

In support of the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), we partnered with retailers Topshop and Topman to create a new clothing range. Our campaign took the care label – usually sewn on the inside of clothes – and printed it loud and proud on the outside, encouraging people to open up and take care of themselves.

Sharp's Brewery

Ocean Vinyl

Utilising our partnership with Vivendi, we devised a collaboration between Sharp's Brewery – based in Rock, Cornwall – and Universal Music's Nick Mulvey to create the world’s first playable vinyl made from reclaimed ocean plastic. The vinyl was a massive hit and sold out within a day, with all proceeds from the track – written especially for the campaign – going to local charity Surfers Against Sewage.
