December 2021




We’ve been dominating the telecommunication category with Iskon for years, and just this Spring we carried out our first bonbon campaign. And, here we are now, with our first campaign for Hrvatski Telekom - and aimed at the most demanding audience: Gen Zs. When it comes to technology, connection, and communication - HT is the one to ask. When it comes to what the modern youth wants, it’s best to ask them. But, when it comes to launching a new communication platform - Señor is your go-to.


You probably remember that feeling when your mom would pick out a shirt for you at the store or your dad decided to play DJ with your birthday playlist - all without even checking with you first. Even though HT (23) is a Gen Z-er itself, getting to know those that would be using the service and asking them for suggestions on what they’d like to see happen, felt like the (obvious) smarter choice.

Uh, and who’s asking me what I think? - a boomer that tells everyone what they think without even being asked


The idea behind the #TebeSePita (#ItsUpToYou) platform was to hear out and maintain a relationship with Generation Z, in order to come up with activities and services through which we can shape a world of better possibilities, together - whether that includes a new STEM academy, a YouTube game show, or a new offer. Of course, since we believe in the motto of ‘show, don’t tell’, for the new platform launch aimed at today’s youth, HT has created their offer based on the inputs from Generation Z.

You know what matters to you. We’re here to help you make it a reality. - HT

We’ve surveyed members of the target audience and identified their wants and needs, to figure out what’s important to them and how we can help them get it. Very high on their list of priorities were phone apps that won’t spend data - so we made sure that’s exactly what we offered them. Will you use that to matchmake your friend, launch a new start-up, or learn a new Tik-Tok choreography - that’s something only you know.

This platform came to life on television, but also all other social channels. We asked the youth through print materials, but also channels closer to heart for the generation that grew up staring at non-TV screens.

FIRST RESULTS: Awareness, liking, good feel, call to action – all are above the benchmark for the campaigns from the telco industry – results for the first three weeks of the campaign. – Source: Brand, Advertising and Sponsorship tracker Q4 2021, Ipsos.

And that’s just the beginning. There’s a variety of activities we have in store, especially tailed for the Gen Z audience, but for now, take a look at a Youtube sensation „Ultimate Gamer“ – a new epic game show that, much like the name suggests, is looking for the ultimate gamer in Croatia.

Rejuvenating a brand is never just a matter of cosmetics. It’s great to see clients take this challenge seriously and with the intention to truly create positive change in the lives of younger customers.

From the starting brief to the final production of tyoung, we’ve all aged quite a bit.

That moment when you’re so into designing that all you do when you look around you is imagine how it would look as a glitch.

When you take on a project like this, no matter how demanding and unpredictable it may be, it ends up being a fun and challenging experience. This platform is a good place to start bringing the T brand closer to the young — that’s how we see it, and we hope they will too.

I finally showed the guys from Señor there's more to TVC than „one take“ ads. Also, I was promised a commission from „čara5g“ smart socks app...I'm coming out of this project as a winner no matter what.

#Ifitwasuptome, this would have been done with less expensive lenses. All jokes aside, this turned out really well.
