Life-Space Probiotics explores the ‘Connection at play’ in your gut microbiome in newly launched campaign via Wunderman Thompson


To announce its partnership with the Australian Open, Australia’s No. 1 probiotics brand and gut microbiome specialists, Life-Space, has launched a new campaign via Wunderman Thompson, that celebrates the connection our gut has with the rest of our body.


The campaign, crafted with studio Future Deluxe – takes us on a journey through the microbiome – starting on a textural, stylised tennis ball that is ‘at the centre of every game’ before exploring the rest of the microbiome that’s at the centre of our body. Shining a light on how the bacteria inside us can influence our body’s performance on the outside.

Says Joao Braga, chief creative officer at Wunderman Thompson: “The science behind how our microbiome works can feel complicated, so we wanted to tell this story with a simple but memorable analogy. When you think about it, our gut is a pretty magical place, so the way we visualised this needed to feel imaginative and surprising as we blended the worlds of tennis and science.”

Says Georgia Bruton, managing partner at Wunderman Thompson: “This was one of those exciting projects where we not only got to see a beautifully executed idea come to life, but we got the opportunity to bring lots of our incredible talent together to make it happen. From strategy and visual brand design, to shopper, data, activations, interactive experiences and traditional mass media.”

Says Eric Chen, chief executive officer at Life-Space Group: “The Australian Open connects tennis fans around the world every year. We believe this partnership and campaign highlights the power of connection, bringing people together to celebrate some of the greatest joys in life – good tennis and good health.”

The campaign is now live across TV, OLV, social, print, OOH as well as a live activation site at the Australian Open.
