by Herman Manson (@marklives) Ogilvy Cape Town MD Gavin Levinsohn is resigning his position at the end of the year to emigrate to Australia, MarkLives has confirmed. The news was announced to Cape Town staff earlier this week.
Can Cape Town become to Johannesburg what Austin is to Dallas, Barcelona is to Madrid or San Francisco is to LosbAngeles – not as big, not as industrial but certainly more creative, entrepreneurial and tech-centric? Gavin Levinsohn, CEO of Ogilvy Cape Town asks the question, but already it seems rhetorical.
“The brief was to produce a retail-driven campaign for the Polo range that ‘moved metal’ and built the brand – basically to advertise a good price without detracting from the emotional aspects of brand equity. We also know that in this tough economic climate, creativity cuts through and gets results,” says Ogilvy Cape Town Managing Director, Gavin Levinsohn, on the campaign his agency created for Volkswagen Polo. The campaign comprises of two 25-second TV commercials, two print ads, online, e-mailers and dealer advertising.
