When it comes to removing unwanted hair with a razor, the endless cycle of nick-cut-scratch-repeat has always been a major pain point for women. And yet, after doing some market research, we found that 97% of people were still reaching for a razor on a regular basis.
So we set out to change that behaviour by offering Silk’n Flash&Go – an at-home hair removal device – as the only viable alternative.
The "Silk’n Not Shaven Challenge" was born. This national, bilingual campaign showed women that they could finally get rid of their razors forever, while also doing away with their unwanted hair – permanently.
The results of the new campaign were hair-raising:
Gay Lea has a long history in Canada of offering farm fresh dairy products. When our partners at Agency59 were asked to rebrand the company, they took that sentiment and used it to elevate the brand into a more innovative and younger space.
A core component of the rebrand was the website. And that’s where we came in. For the redesign, we stayed true to the ‘new’ Gay Lea – a food-first, forward thinking company – by matching great photography with great design. Moreover, by bringing beautifully plated food to the forefront in a simple and elegant manner, we were also able to maintain the original ‘Born on the Farm’ platform, while subtly evolving it to tell the new ‘Farm to Table’ story.
TELUS Hospitality Solutions is a comprehensive suite of services designed to optimize hotel operations, attract guests and keep them coming back time and time again.
To raise awareness for this fully-connected hotel experience, we created a fully-integrated campaign.
Through online advertising, industry publications and direct mail, we were able to push traffic to our online video and interactive brochure, in order to tell our TELUS Hospitality story and funnel our audience through the buyer’s journey.
Eaton has created temporary power solutions that are designed to enhance the guest experience at RV parks and marinas. They’re easy to set up and even easier to use.
But RV park and marina owners are often too busy getting their sites ready to spend time fielding calls from sales teams; we had to get their attention another way.
So we sent them a prop that anyone working in the great outdoors would relate to – a fishing lure. The fishing lure doubled as an Eaton-branded USB keychain, which – once plugged in – automatically loaded our microsite. And from there, they learned everything there was to know about Eaton’s power solutions for outdoor sites, and were directed to request a callback.
What’s the best way to introduce Premier Tech’s new Alaskan Ice Preventer in Canada? Well, ‘open on a magnificent Alaskan vista’ was a bit out of budget, so we opted for a tried-and-true product demonstration in our very own Winter Lab.
Success! Canadians jumped at the chance to prevent ice from forming on their walkways and driveways. And by mid-winter, the campaign had already exceeded its targets, with sales largely outpacing projections nationwide.
When it comes to fighting winter conditions, Canadians know best.

However, please note that Junction59’s security measures may change or be unavailable from time to time and no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network is 100% secure, so we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information.
