Roofing Contractors Association of British Columbia
The COVID-19 virus took the world by storm in 2020. There was a real risk of construction and the trades being shut down completely by a Public Health Order.
The onus fell on the trades themselves to remain vigilant to pandemic protocol in order to keep sites open.
This campaign was directed to all of the tradespeople in BC.
The messaging from the Ministry of Health was a bit of a moving target. Therefore, we had to create a campaign that would as effective in Phase One as it would in Phase Three.
To address vaccine hesitancy in 2021, the roofers launched a campaign that addressed twenty-something roofers with a high risk tolerance, but a soft spot for the one who made them. This ad won bronze at the Summits in 2021.

These reminders of pandemic protocol helped to keep job sites open.
Digital - Social media campaigns
This simple animated video ran on Facebook, Linkedin and Instagram. It won Bronze at the Summit International Awards (2020) in the new Coronavirus Response Category.
To reach a 18-45 demographic, we ran a second campaign that focused on 'doubling down on our efforts' shortly after on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
These worksite posters urged those in the trades to be vigilant, so their job sites could remain open.
All trades had to be in this together in order to keep everyone working.
