Every year Business Aarhus gather the top 500 C-levels of Aarhus to a new years brief in the beautiful City Hall of Aarhus. Of course this wasn't possible during the COVID-19 pandemic.
So do you just back down? Don't tell about any of your interesting city developments? No. You do a full digital show. And you don't settle for 500 views, you go double.
This is where Culture Works enter the picture. Together with Business Aarhus we created a complete digital experience. And boy, did we have content! Let's just say that innovation won't stay back in 2021.
Time is precius for all of us, but when especially for top business people with busy schedules. Therefore we knew that we had to create a tight concept that was well paced down to the minute.
We had to adress COVID-19 but we also had to shed some optimistic light about the future. And last but least, everything had to wrapped in a business, yet fresh graphic identity communicating that the Aarhus Municipality won't turn down innovation because of a global pandemic.
You can watch our intro sequence below.
Our graphic direction took its starting point in the present time, where many communities have been put un an unwanted break and we all feel a need to re-connect.
Furthermore the identity explores contrasts between the fragmented and the perfect.
While we pre-produced a lot of elements for the new years brief the main part of the show was done live. We had several persons on screen, including:
- Jacob Bundsgaard, Mayor of Aarhus
- Helle Østergaard, CEO of Danish Commodities
- Henrik Andersen, Group President & CEO of Vestas
Below you'll find the new years brief in its whole form - as it was broadcasted live to 1.2k business people in January 2020.
"This year it wasn’t possible to gather people physically, so we needed to come up with a digital format that would target our top business audience. We found the right partner for this task in Culture Works, who unfolded the show from start to finish. We’ve received lots of praise about the show afterwards from top business people."
