Founders Day: Giving Back

To celebrate 81 years since Leo Burnett was founded, we wanted to share just some of the ways in which we give back to the communities we support. Most of the time, all you hear from ad agencies is about the work and the awards – but our work extends beyond that.

This extended OOO charity special introduces Metin Salih, Kate Nicoli and Laura Almond who all recognise that small contributions can have a wonderful impact and, in the words of Leo Burnett himself: 'collective solutions to problems start with individual human beings and individual efforts'

Hear more about Kate's experience here.. Follow Metin and his many projects on Instagram, and take a look at Out of Office #3 coming soon to find out more about Laura

End Youth Homelessness

We worked with charity End Youth Homelessness to raise awareness of a serious dilemma 80,000 young people face in the UK: stay at home where you know you will be abused, or risk a life on the street where abuse is an everyday reality. Our outdoor campaign reflected the precarious position these young people are in with type led illustrations on the outside of buildings - the division between home and the street. The ambient pieces were then photographed and released as posters. The campaign is raising public awareness and demonstrating that by supporting End Youth Homelessness they can help make a difference.

Kellogg's 'The Art of Bran Flakes'

Our latest creation for Kellogg's paints Kellogg’s Bran Flakes as the perfect breakfast blank canvas. In the 30-second spot three different ‘artists’ are portrayed creating their own tasty masterpieces such as a girl who eyes the flakes surrounding by a number of bowls filled with breakfast ingredients. Inspired she starts her work and the creativity begins.

Set to a sound-track by French hip hop producer, Roger Molls, we see the Kellogg’s Bran Flakes, berries, yoghurt, kiwi, passion fruit being crumpled, squeezed and spun to create a number of different mouth-watering breakfasts.
