Odes to craft at the heart of new Kettle Chips campaign via Ikon Sydney

 
Devotion and craftsmanship are at the heart of a new advertising campaign for Kettle Chips via Ikon Group Sydney.
The Kettle Odes, directed by Graeme Burfoot and voiced by one of Australia’s best loved actors, Max Cullen, tell the story of lovingly-crafted Kettle Chips. The TV campaign is supported by radio, OOH, online video, plus path-to-purchase digital retail panels and major in-store sampling activity.
 
Ikon was briefed to develop the campaign aligned to support Kettles new packaging and flavours and was responsible for strategy, creative development and media.  
 
Rob Martin Murphy, ECD Ikon Group Sydney said: “We really enjoyed relaunching the Kettle brand with our full-service team and Mark and Jen from Snack Brands. Working with Graeme, Max, White Chocolate, Noise and all the crew involved was also a great experience. I think the dedication to all their crafts comes through in the ads.”
 
Mark Fryday, Marketing Director, Snack Brands Australia, said the campaign reaffirms Kettle’s premium place in the chip category.  “The campaign is a declaration of Kettle’s devotion to crafting the best tasting chips.  It has a nod to the brands strong heritage, though it is done in a contemporary way and aims to appeal to those interested in quality food, made with care.”
 
The campaign will launch nationally on Sunday 5th June 2016 and will run until October.
