Copywriting. Marketing. Advertising. Social Media.

After the Nigerian Government ascertained it was now safe to travel, the ban on air travel was to be lifted on Sept 5th 2020. The idea was to create a teaser and reveal communication. For the teaser, we wanted to get people excited about the chance to travel again so we asked them to replace their last names with their choice destinations. For the reveal, we tapped into the emotion of reaping the reward of doing the right thing; staying indoors so everyone can be safe. The reward is that now they can move freely again.
