CAMPBELL'S
UNCANNED

Addressing the issues that come with having 100% brand awareness, but declining relevance. Campbell’s has some questions to answer – and in this day and age just talking to yourself doesn’t work. Transparency initiatives often suffer from self-serious, overly-wrought, feel-good answers to tough questions. And Campbell’s, as a standard-bearer of Big Food – gets a lot of tough questions. The real question however is – how can they own this conversation?

UnCanned is FAQ 2.0. It poses questions in a way people would actually ask them and doesn’t shy away from big topics. GMOs? Let’s talk about it. Feeding Billions of people? Let’s talk about it. We made the legal team sweat a little but in the end came out with something informative and entertaining (infotaining?). So the question we’re UnCanning is...

BRAND

With Campbell’s, we had a 100 year old equity-sandbox to play in – and re-interpret. As a result the look and feel is undeniably Campbell’s, yet not in its traditional corporate form.

THE INTERNET

When it came to navigating UnCanned, we used our base can as the vehicle for each of the 14 questions, resulting in an interesting and engaging perusal on both desktop and mobile (it was 2017 after all, mobile is so in).

THE VIDEOS

So what if it’s a series of mini docs with people in fields and polo shirts talking about all the ways...I’m already bored. With UnCanned we tackled questions in a way people might actually ask them as much as humanly possible. What’s up with GMO’s? Let’s talk about it.
