Iconic French biscuit LU Lands In UK With A Digitas Campaign
Digitas UK's endearing illustrated campaign launches LU biscuits from Mondelez
01 September 2021
Anyone who has holidayed in France will be familiar with the LU biccies, and now the iconic brand is launching four varieties in UK supermarkets for the first time, supported by a campaign from Digitas UK.
Running across digital, DOOH and social media, the campaign states ‘A taste of France is now available in the UK’ and leverages the LU brand’s distinctive design assets, including imagery specifically new in the UK, with expanded pack designs to create a world to be explored.
LU is an iconic brand with 175 years of baking passion behind it. The illustrations reflect the nostalgic taste of France, with subtly comic depictions of giant biscuits being transported to the UK, familiar boulangerie settings with outdoor seating and the recognisable red and white colour ways of the LU packet branding.
Charlotte Parkes, senior brand manager LU, Mondelez, says, “The LU brand is something we all recognise in France and it’s wonderful to bring it to the UK along with a little bit of French flavour. The style and presentation of the work from Digitas has kept our LU core while bringing the product to a brand new audience.”
Lazaros NIkiforidis, executive creative director, Digitas, says, “Just when we are all craving the joys of France the most, LU brings the taste of France to us. People are missing the French experience, the food, culture and people but especially the food! If you can’t get to France, you can still get to Tesco to grab some.”
