Australia|World AIDS Campaign

Here in Australia it’s now December 3, two days after World AIDS Day. The campaign has been picked up by a large number of organisations, brands and web sites. Twitter turned red in honour of the day, in collaboration with Product Red. The Inspiration Room Daily site has gone red. Google has a special page for the day. The red ribbon is everywhere. It’s all part of a much larger campaign, run over many years, to uphold a commitment to reach universal access to HIV prevention, treatment, care and support. The World AIDS Campaign has released four posters and two postcards that pick up that commitment to human rights.

World AIDS Day Beginning

The World AIDS Day concept was developed in 1987 by James W. Bunn and Thomas Netter, two public information officers for the Global Programme on AIDS at the World Health Organization in Geneva, Switzerland. The campaign was picked up and promoted by Dr. Jonathan Mann, Director of the Global Programme on AIDS (now known as UNAIDS), with the first World AIDS Day held on 1 December 1998.
Bunn suggested the date of December 1st to ensure coverage by western news media, something he believed was vital to the success of World AIDS Day. He felt that because 1988 was an election year in the U.S. media outlets would be weary of their post-election coverage and eager to find a fresh story to cover. Bunn and Netter felt that December 1 was long enough after the election and soon enough before the Christmas holidays that it was, in effect, a dead spot in the news calendar and thus perfect timing for World AIDS Day.

ABSOLUT VODKA| ‘Every Drink is an Exceptional Experience’

ABSOLUT VODKA debuts ‘Drinks,’ the latest work of a new generation of creative collaborators. Via a collaboration with some of the most exciting personalities on the planet, “Drinks” brings the cocktail world to life with renowned fashion photographer Ellen Von Unwerth and critically-acclaimed actresses Kate Beckinsale and Zooey Deschanel to celebrate uniquely ABSOLUT drinks.
With the tagline, ‘Every Drink is an Exceptional Experience,’ the new ads are a tribute to those drinks that changed the playing field within the cocktail community and continue to have relevance among today’s vodka connoisseurs. The initiative underlines that every cocktail starts with a story – from the legendary lore of the Bloody Mary’s creation at Harry’s Bar in Paris to the legions of female fans of the otherworldly Cosmopolitan.
“As the next iteration in the campaign, ‘Drinks’ is a witty interpretation of classic cocktails that pay homage to ABSOLUT VODKA’s legacy as a truly iconic spirits brand and the key ingredient in making these drinks an exceptional experience for consumers and bartenders,” says Tim Murphy, ABSOLUT Vice President of Marketing. “No other vodka has as much longevity within both the cocktail and creative worlds, and “Drinks” is the culmination of our 30 years of bringing collaborations to life, while showcasing the drinks that made the brand a back bar staple.” 

Known for her distinctly bold and playful adaptations of fashion and beauty photography, Ellen von Unwerth captures Kate Beckinsale and Zooey Deschanel’s characters as they are immersed in different cocktail worlds. The drinks profiled include the iconic cocktails that made the brand famous, like ABSOLUT Bloody, ABSOLUT Cosmo, ABSOLUT Twist and ABSOLUT Crush, as well as a new recipe to be revealed in the coming months.
