Holiday price comparison and travel deals brand icelolly.com has appointed London creative agency, Impero, to create a new 360 brand campaign, including a new TV spot.

The business was awarded after a competitive pitch which saw five agencies battle it out to create the brand’s first campaign since 2015.

The campaign, called ‘Do it For the Stories’, puts the consumer at the heart of icelolly.com’s communications. In the longer term, it will consist of TV, social, OOH and direct response elements – all designed to create an emotional connection with people shopping for their next holiday, as well as convert them at the right time. 

Activity launched on Boxing Day 2018 with a series of TV spots, made with real-life user-generated content.

Ross Matthews, CMO of icelolly.com, said: “Impero took our initial challenge, of creating a TVC campaign that highlighted the range of holiday package opportunities icelolly.com have to offer, and quickly evolved it into essentially redefining our brand purpose – internally for the brand team, and externally for consumers. We’re really excited to launch this campaign together.” 

Lara Groves, associate creative director at Impero, said: “Our approach invites everyone who interacts with the brand, at any level, to embrace the spontaneous call of itchy travel feet, the long-awaited pay-offs of careful planning, and those instances where the utterly unexpected happens – because it’s these moments that truly bring our holidays to life, and live on in our memories for years after the event.

"We’re delighted to be working with icelolly.com – they’re bold, they’re brave, and they’re wonderfully proud of what they bring to the world. We can’t wait to help them share this passion with their audiences.”
