Media Buzz: Turn Key;; Refractiv; Dinosaur PR

TURN Key has launched a £1m campaign developed for iconic melon liqueur brand Midori.

At the start of the year, the Leeds-based integrated marketing agency was tasked with creating the concept, design and strategy for Midori’s first ever consumer-facing campaign.

Turn Key designed all the visual aspects of the campaign, which will be seen on bus stops, posters and billboards across the North and South East of England, as well as in supermarkets, bars and online.

Nik Entwistle, managing director at Turn Key, said: “It’s always exciting to work with clients in new ways and help elevate a brand to new heights. It’s a highly competitive market and so this wasn’t just about the creative alone, it was about understanding the sector and knowing the best regions and locations to place Midori’s advertising spend in order to produce the best return on investment. We’re confident that our strategic approach will help them achieve that over the coming months.”
