Upwork "Hey World" Ad Campaign - "Hey George RR Martin"
In this new campaign from award-winning ad agency Duncan Channon, Upwork playfully raises its hand to offer freelance help to time- or resource-strapped pop culture figures, business icons, institutions and political leaders. The integrated campaign includes OOH and animated digital videos produced with Gentleman Scholar (GS), radio, and also station takeovers in travel hubs across America.
"As a creative studio, we have a tendency to ebb and flow with every project we work on, so our familiarity with the freelance world made partnering with Duncan Channon and Upwork on this campaign an exciting opportunity for us," said Will Johnson, co-founder and creative director at GS.
"We poured ourselves into bringing each visual to life and allowed the tongue-in-cheek messaging of the scripts to influence our explorations of fun and engaging worlds, and catch the attention of hiring managers and leaders who need talent in a real and relatable way,” adds GS art director Macauley Johnson.
Project Name: Upwork Hey World Campaign "Hey Mr. President," "Hey NASA," "Hey George R.R. Martin," "Hey Equifax," "Hey The Rock," "Hey Elon Musk," "Hey Amazon," "Hey Comic Sans User," and "Hey Blockbuster"
