News Corp’s metro mastheads consolidated under one unified creative platform ‘Get a read on | today’ via Today the Brave
Today the Brave has today released the first look at News Corp’s new unified creative platform; Get a read on | today.
The multi-channel campaign, presented across TV, digital, social, OOH and radio, has been designed to consolidate News Corp’s mastheads while attracting and retaining subscribers in an increasingly challenging environment.
Today the Brave were tasked with creating the campaign platform, tone of voice and an overhaul of the visual identity – equipping News Corp’s internal agency, Roller, with a toolkit to roll out the remaining campaign executions.
Says Vince Osmand, creative partner, Today the Brave: ‘The creative platform was designed to help Australians feel empowered. By getting a read on their day, readers are equipping themselves with all the information they need to successfully navigate the world around them.”
Focused to drive subscriptions across regional and metro mastheads, ‘Get a read on | today’, was created in light of socio-economic headwinds, giving Australians the confidence to navigate their day.
Says Bettina Brown, director, consumer marketing at News Corp: “Our core objective was to communicate the breadth of content housed within our print and digital mastheads that can help consumers and subscribers navigate the current economic and social environments. What’s more, we had nine individual mastheads to be serviced by a single brand message. This was a significant challenge. Today the Brave took a strategic approach to the creative solution and ‘Get a read on today’ was launched! It’s the perfect brand message to house our breadth of daily content.”
Says Jaimes Leggett, founding partner, Today the Brave: “By consolidating the metro and regional mastheads under one creative platform, we were able to supercharge News Corp’s subscription drive. They made a brave call and it’s paying off for their brand and business.”
Since Today the Brave’s launch, the agency has worked with clients including the University of Sydney, AMP North, Coposit, Hoyts and Mercury Capital.
Founded by Jaimes Leggett, alongside business partner Celia Wallace and creative partners Jade Manning and Vince Osmond, the agency is led by its guiding principle of bravery, which reflects how they behave, measure and show up in the world.
