Raytheon UK partnered with Studio to discover their brand story that resonated the most within the key UK markets through their ‘Invested in Britain’ and ‘#SharedEndeavour’ initiatives.
We needed to tell a human story that showcased Raytheon UK’s brand values authentically and spoke to the shared value of their investment in the UK.
We helped win hearts and minds with innovative content and leveraged the growing popularity of podcast listening to produce a multi-episode that really defined the future of Defence content. Drawing on the expertise of Raytheon UK staff, their partner companies and utilising impartial sources such as the UK Space Agency to drive awareness of Raytheon UK’s critical role in the Defence Training Space and Complex Weapons sectors.
By utilising our own known audience data on UK Defence decision-makers and influencers we were able to build a precise promotional plan that surfaced content at strategic UK locations within specific postcode areas and household income parameters.
Systel, a close partner, required creative resource that knew the Defence sector inside-and-out that could help them maximise their impact at AUSA 2019.
Execute Systel’s creative vision and produce video that could be used across their owned channels to drive booth footfall at AUSA.
We deployed a team of creatives, well-versed in Systel’s brand guidelines, to attend AUSA, armed with the capabilities of recording, editing and deploying video at speed for fast approval.
All content was created by Studio but was only promoted and distributed across Systel's channels, serving as a prime example of content we have created for other platforms and for various purposes.
Wärtsilä wanted to communicate directly with end-users of their Shaftline Repair Services but didn’t have the full audience knowledge to do so alone.
Identify the core reasons-to-care behind their end-users, and serve content that presented them as thought-leaders to become a top-of-mind provider.
Studio told the company’s stories by analysing end-user requirements across bespoke written content, delving into how Wärtsilä can help customers by interviewing members of their own engineering teams to tell a compelling story. We examined our own known audience and tested Wärtsilä’s own assumptions around who they thought their end-user was.
This approach allowed us to build an underlying picture of the extensive work that goes into their services in a way that directly resonated with their target audience, and a specific audience profile for targeting with the content.
Raytheon Technologies partnered with Studio to showcase their extensive capabilities at Farnborough Air Show 2018 and Paris Air Show 2019.
Bolster product awareness among influential Industry, Military and Government decision-makers in a way that put Raytheon Technologies top-of-mind for those attending the shows.
To level up their reach, Studio built a multi-threaded campaign that weaved multiple video stages together to tell a coherent story that maximised exposure, memorability and impact. These videos, directed by Studio, put Raytheon Technologies’ senior leadership front and centre, reaffirmed their position as a leader in the space and drove a truly product-centric story.
Assets were served to senior decision-makers and influencers across Shephard’s own known audience and via sophisticated geographic and behavioural targeting through social, display and direct mail.
Studio has partnered with global communications company Viasat for several years. Our solutions have been a core element of their multi-year Five Eyes-focused campaign, which targets strategic military and government audiences across the Five Eyes community.
Utilise innovative content forms to stand out and influence a specific audience parameters.
Initially, Studio adopted a capability-focused podcast series that delved into Viasat capabilities themselves – allowing us to approach military staff in each target country and assess their requirements against the available solutions.
This series' popularity quickly led to a renewal, with the second series focusing on each country and how Viasat's leading solutions are helping individual nations in the broader context of the Five Eyes alliance.
The second campaign also leveraged written Capability Profiles that, along with every edition of the podcast, is now live on a bespoke website 'www.fiveeyesconnect.com' created just for the project. This brought all of the content together, providing an easy-to-access hub filled with innovative and memorable resources that can be added to in the future.
Studio added to Shephard’s long-standing relationship with Clarion by working together to create DSEI TV at DSEI 2017 and DSEI 2019 to film and produce almost-live content.
Observe, plan and execute video that told the story of DSEI to those attending and around the world.
Studio provided a dedicated team including a filming crew and presenter to make the project a success, supplying Clarion with video content that can also be leveraged to create future videos as a promotion tool for future events.
In mid-2020, Honeywell wanted to show their customers and prospects that they are still here to help and on-hand to service requirements despite the Coronavirus pandemic impact on the industry.
Utilise digital to build a strong positive narrative for Honeywell during COVID that is measurable and proven. Capitalise on increasing online traffic throughout Defence websites.
Studio leveraged impartial editorial content and Studio-developed Honeywell-focused written content to create a significant 'Impact of Covid-19' Special Report that served as a content hub for audiences looking to access information on the effect of the virus on the defence, security and aerospace markets.
Studio leveraged Shephard's journalistic authority to produce meaningful, audience-centric content in a way that couldn't be done offline. We worked with Honeywell to make sure that their adverts were eyecatching to maximise brand association.
