Prahran’s 2019 Say Cheese Festival
One of Prahran Market’s most popular annual events is the ‘Say Cheese Festival’. A range of cheese-related goodies, that celebrated all things cheese was developed by market management and the individual traders. With a significant portion of Elizabeth Street shut for pop-up traders on the day, and special ticketed events and other activities, ‘Say Cheese’ is an important annual drawcard for the market.
Faith were tasked with developing the key creative direction for the event, as well as coordinating a targeted media campaign. Whilst previous campaigns have used a combination of modern imagery and real-world shots, the design brief this year, was for something more art deco and 1930s inspired. An engaging watercolour graphic of ‘stacked cheeses’ provided the centrepiece of our creative platform, that was enticingly rolled out across the event poster, billboards and other media.
A multi-station radio campaign was recommended as a key driver to increasing awareness of the event. In addition to radio, Faith ran a well-targeted paid social media campaign as well as ‘eye catching’ outdoor billboards to positive effect. The overall campaign delivered an outstanding result with significantly increased visitation, and audience insights that will assist future marketing campaigns.
Faith are proud to be a key marketing partner of Prahran Market, Melbourne’s oldest operating market, and contributing to upcoming events that include Christmas and Sizzlefest 2020.
