Creativebrief: What’s the biggest challenge we face when transforming insights into action?

Mike Hughes: Changing peoples’ state of mind along the way that this isn’t just a nice idea. It’s something that’s actually going to happen. Once people come around to that then they get behind you and momentum builds.

Creativebrief: What makes a successful client/agency relationship?

Mike Hughes: An open partnership and complete alignment on where you’re heading and what you want to achieve.

Creativebrief: How did you come up with the concept for Trash Isles?

Mike Hughes: You’ll have to come to our talk to find out the answer to that one!

Creativebrief: What is it about Trash Isles that appeals to a LADbible audience?

Peter Heneghan: LADbible is followed on social media by more than half of all 18 to 34-year-olds in the UK alone. This demographic is the most globally connected and socially aware generation ever. They want to be empowered to do good and make a difference in their own lives. That’s a key reason why Trash Isles was so successful. Our audience were horrified by the plastic pollution epidemic, and by becoming a citizen [of Trash Isles], they had a vested interest in making a change in their own lives.
