TVC for Brand Awards

A TV commercial was specially produced for the promotion of the Brand Awards. Based on the theme of “moving up the ladder of success”, the TVC naturally and innovatively brings out the salient characteristics and key success factors of Hong Kong Top Brand, including “Reputation”, “Quality” and “Image”. It also employs movie shooting techniques with a mysterious touch to illustrate the Awards’ vision of “Scaling new heights hand-in-hand with the industries”.

The TV commercial is broadcasted on Open TV, ViuTV and digital and social media from July to August 2019.
