Fostering the ideal creative partnership
Burger King's Fernando Machado and DAVID's Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer Anselmo Ramos share the secrets of their successful creative partnership
Clients often hire agencies solely to help lead their creative output and make their brand resonate with audiences across all demographics, ages and backgrounds. This usually results in the agency taking its clients to new places they’ve never been before, sometimes even convincing their clients to be braver and trust their agencies’ creative visions. But in the case of Burger King and their lead global agency, DAVID, a true partnership means sharing the creative reins and coming up with bold and provocative ideas, together.
In this session from Cannes Lions 2015, you can hear from one of the hottest marketing partnerships: Fernando Machado, SVP, Global Brand Management at Burger King and leader of the famous Proud Whopper campaign, which won 13 Cannes Lions in 2015, along with 127-time Cannes Lions winner Anselmo Ramos, co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of hot international creative agency DAVID, Burger King’s lead agency of record.
Together they discuss their bold and unconventional projects, including Dove's "Real Beauty Sketches," which won 20 Cannes Lions and the first Titanium Grand Prix for Latin America, the "Proud Whopper" and "Whopper Sign" work for Burger King, and how they continually work together to push the boundaries for both the brand and the agency.
