WHAT OUR MARKETING TEAM WOULD LOVE TO SHARE.
Our people, experiences, holidays and places to go connect people. It should always showcase a warm sense of belonging, and people enjoying and sharing a moment. We use bright, primary colours that show people enjoying themselves surrounded by friends and family. When people see our photos, they will think “That can be us”.
We love a video because we believe it’s a great way to showcase unforgettable moments . We’re looking for 15 second edits at most and ideally without music, subtitle / copy overlays or voice. If you film this vertically on your phone, that would be great too. But, keep in mind what you have rights to. T-shirts with brand names splashed across as an example, isn’t permitted without the brand’s written permission so best to steer clear of obvious branding.
