Harley-Davidson x Marvel :: Super Hero Customs 

Harley-Davidson issued a brief in 2015 to come up with a brand campaign that would help engage a younger market with alienating their loyal following.

By way of a response I went about initiating a partnership between H-D and Marvel. The concept was to create a ‘build-off’ between their dealerships in Australia and New Zealand – using assigned Marvel characters as inspiration. The heritage of both brands played out very well.

This campaign coincided with the 75th anniversary of one of Marvel’s most well-know heroes – Captain America. To work this into the concept, the Captain America bike was removed from the competition and constructed by Harley HQ. This provided a benchmark for the rest of the competition and an opportunity to capture a bike build on film. It was also on display at Myer Sydney for a month.

All of the bikes can be seen on a bespoke website and in-real-life at OzComicCon 2016.

The story was even picked up by Sunrise on Channel 7

NRMA x SES :: Wear Orange Wednesday

The State Emergency Service is almost entirely made up of volunteers. Over 9,000 people from all walks of life give up their time to help with this life-saving work. They could be students, parents or business professionals, but they all are strive to help their community and others.

The SES are on hand every hour of every day to assist in road accident and vertical rescue, rural searches and emergency relocation and reconstruction. Their trained rescue team also support the full-time emergency services during severe disasters.

We are very thankful that these heroes are on hand to help out in an emergency and are there to educate us to be prepared to prevent one.
