The awarding of the “Stars” took place Friday, September 23, at the Carré d’Or Casablanca, at the close of the event “Les Impériales”, a major event for professionals in marketing, communication, media, and digital placed under the High Patronage of His Majesty King Mohammed VI.
“This recognition reinforces our position as a major player in the creation of brand experiences. Our mission is to work every day to offer creative and effective experiences to our clients, their users, and their communities.” Oussama Amraoui, Co-founder of TNC-thenext.click agency.
This 5th edition of “Les Impériales” was organized this year under the theme “Morocco Tomorrow: Brand, Culture, Talents, Tech” to reward the actors who have shone by their creativity, their professionalism, and their commitment to the whole ecosystem of the Kingdom during this period.
Being a major player that contributes to the advancement of the Moroccan Brand, the agency TNC-thenext.click was able to distinguish itself through the efforts deployed by the entire TNC – thenext.click and Mediamatic teams and won 6 Stars in total, a first in the history of the Imperials, namely:
- Reinvented Brand Star for the #Flash campaigns
The first prize awarded to the agency is in the “Reinvented Brand” category for its Flash campaigns.
The brand relaunched its communication in 2021 with the challenge of rejuvenating its image to reach the Genz target while focusing on the close relationship with Moroccan youth, a relationship it has created since its launch in the 60s.
This link has been a leitmotif in the campaigns and communication of the brand.
- Heritage Brand Star for the #FlashOkOk campaign
The second star in the “Heritage Brand” category was awarded to the Flash Ok OK campaign.
Via a unique collaboration bringing together a youth icon from the 50s, the artist Houssein Slaoui, and a current youth icon, the trap rapper TAGNE.
An opportunity to remember that cool is an iteration, which is transmitted from generation to generation.
- Graphic Design Star for the #CoolM3aFlash campaign
In order to reconnect with the young target, the brand had to reinvent itself graphically to rejuvenate its image.
In line with its strategy to accompany the cool of Moroccan youth, the agency capitalized on the target’s passions (gaming, music, film, street art, etc.), adopting a y2k style: a trend that emphasizes technology and futuristic looks mixed with Moroccan culture.
“The implementation of this new graphic vision required an approach that is closer to the uses of social media users and more particularly to influencers. We decided not to charter our content, but to make the product and the brand live in each of our creations. An approach that opens the field of possibilities in terms of creativity without having too much of a commercial connotation. It’s an approach that enhances the iconic aspect of the brand and integrates it into pop culture,” says Quods Ouaissi, Creative Director of the agency.
- Digital Brand Content Star for the #Eggspiracy ANPO campaign
Food prejudices are extremely difficult to change. Moroccans think that eating too many eggs is bad for their health and associate it with totally false ideas. The National Association of Egg Producers (ANPO) decided to launch the “Eggspiracy” campaign, to create a Behavioral change under the claim “365 incredible reasons to eat an egg a day”.
- Advertiser of the Year Star
Thanks to the contribution of the agency TNC – thenext.click, the advertiser MAGHREB INDUSTRIES was awarded the Advertiser of the Year 2022 in Morocco for its historical brand Flash.
With these six awards, the TNC-thenext.click group consolidates its position as a leading agency in 360° brand support and the success of the communication strategies deployed for its clients in recent years.
