There’s few things more Scottish than a pint of Tennent’s. Not only is it the country’s favourite lager, it’s also a national icon with its big red T. It’s a beer that’s proud to be from Scotland, and represents everything great about it.
But it’s not so easy to capture that sentiment in a simple statement. After all, Scotland is a rich tapestry of cultures, habits and cultures from all corners. So, how to distill that down to make a toast to an entire nation?
We found the answer in this simple insight:
“To celebrate Scotland means to celebrate its individuals and the places they live”
From there onward, we tackled this beast of a project from two sides – the “where” and the “who”. For the where, we chose 6 cities to champion all things Scotland. Love as we would to include every town, isle and city, it would be an impossible task to capture them all in a coherent way.
However, it led us to a brilliant (we think) answer to the question of “who”. Instead of writing our own ode to Scotland, we handed the microphone over to the hundreds of thousands of people living in our 6 chosen cities. The plan?
“Let the people of Scotland describe what they find great about Scotland.”
We had the beginnings of a user-generated campaign brewing.
Work in Progress
In putting together a campaign of this scale, management of many different moving parts becomes one of the biggest challenges. Here’s a story of how we converted all the consumer input from across Scotland into something they’d want to raise their pint in.
