Be memorable!

Have you seen this little guy? He’s a regular on TV at the moment, and this cute card popped through my letterbox last week. This is a clever campaign by EDF Energy that has ‘personalised’ its brand, and made it stand out from the other energy suppliers.

The campaign highlights their clear and transparent billing policy, and their commitment to low carbon energy. But although it has a serious message, the friendly character (apparently named Zingy) has built up quite a fan base in his own right.
