Island Beats Launch

Annual ID



Craft beer lovers all over America were telling us that they were partial to fruit-forward, lighter alcohol beverages. So, of course, we obliged. World, meet Island Beats. A tropical IPA with refreshing and juicy notes of freshly squeezed pineapple, mango and passion-fruit. Sounds pretty good right? It is. But our launch budget certainly wasn’t. To have even the slightest hope in hoppy hell of competing with the kajillion-dollar Big Beer ad campaigns, we had to create disruptive, immersive and memorable work. Welcome to Bongo Isles. A flavor destination with a host of characters, including a Stetson-donning iguana, sun-tanning meat puppet of a man, a metal-detecting beach-comber and of course a ship that sails on clouds. Because just like Island Beats, our ads are a deliciously juicy experience.
