Oliver Sweeney
press campaign gets
plenty of attention

With a celebrity following from the
likes of David Beckham and Brad Pitt,
Oliver Sweeney is at the very forefront
of men’s shoe design.
In a brave move, Bray Leino created
the brand’s first ever ad not to feature a
shoe. Based around the idea of ‘the first
place a woman looks’, the ad ran in men’s
fashion magazines GQ and Men’s Health,
as well as featuring prominently in the
windows of Oliver Sweeney’s stores.
An impressive 80 page look book
promoting their Spring/Summer 2009
collection accompanies the campaign,
featuring some stunning photography
that riffs on the reactions concept – one
shot of which featured on the front cover
of The Drum magazine.
Roland Haynes, Creative Director at
Oliver Sweeney, commented: “Working
with Bray Leino has been a really open,
collaborative process; the result is some
great creative that moves our advertising
into a truly distinctive place.”

Events deliver
stand for Diageo

TFWA Cannes is the only trade show
Diageo’s corporate stand appears
at each year. So the world’s leading
premium drinks company needed
something special from Bray Leino
However, this show presents one of the
most challenging builds around. There are
legal requirements which, for a company
like Diageo, result in many restrictions –
for instance, the organisers insist on full
fire certificates for every single item used
in the construction.
Despite such constraints, compounded
during the build by a particularly stringent
fire officer, Bray Leino Events delivered the
‘wow’ factor, ensuring that the stand was
one of the busiest at the show.
Diageo were absolutely delighted with the
result, and their customer feedback was
tremendous, too. In particular, the 360°
LCD display unit – the stand’s centrepiece
– was remarked upon time and again,
setting a new standard for shows to come.
