To strengthen a connection between the National Rugby League and tomorrow’s little league fans by utilising the mascots of the 16 teams to build an emotional connection.
We popularised the mascots by creating an online world called My Clubhouse that was complemented by ‘physical’ experiential activity at Sydney’s Luna Park. This activity was supported by a fun logo, colourful characters and great games so kids can interact with their heroes online or play with them in person at select outdoor sites.
Recognition of the official My Clubhouse program has grown enormously as has the ever increasing database of My Clubhouse members.
‘Make A Splash grasped the challenging brief immediately.
Their work communicates to kids in an engaging and
meaningful manner. Their insightful strategy and creative
execution blew us away.’

Naiman Clarke Health
Naiman Clarke, one of Australia’s leading specialist recruitment consultancies, wanted to leverage the investment it had made over the past ten years in its established legal brand to successfully launch a new health brand.
The corporate identity of the health division adopted similar branding to NC Legal albeit with a different colour scheme. This was supported by online and print communications that used solid insights and colourful personality to cut through what is perceived as a very corporate environment.
NC Health has become the leading provider of staffing solutions in Medical Radiation Science by practically redefining the category as a whole. So successfully, that its candidate-targeted advertising still attracts equal numbers of clients who contact NC Health believing they have the best candidates on their books.
“Make A Splash helped us successfully launch our brand
in a highly competitive market niche with a combination
of strategic advice and creative solutions. Michael helped
us keep our costs down while increasing the reach of our
marketing efforts by implementing a creative media strategy.
I was also very impressed by the agency’s grasp of new
marketing trends and techniques.”
JOHN NAIMAN, CEO, NAIMAN CLARKE
Peter Doyle took over the Doyle family businesses, determined to build equity in the Peter Doyle name. He sought consistent branding across all businesses including the wine range, food condiments, a takeaway kiosk and other lifestyle brands.
New corporate branding including logo and identity that was simple, compelling and memorable, to reflect the brand values of trust and quality. The use of his initials ‘p’ and ‘d’ in the shape of fish elegantly draws on the Doyle seafood heritage. This became a design constant throughout every communication piece – a quasi seal of approval which consumers could put their trust in. The launch was supported by a large PR component and association with brands such as American Express.
Recognition of the name Peter Doyle increased remarkably. Re-branding of Doyles at the Quay to Peter Doyle @ The Quay saw a 15% increase in business in the 2nd half of 2008 compared to 12 months earlier. The 12 months of 2008 also saw Watsons Bay Hotel’s highest occupancy rates on record.
‘The team has done a wonderful job re-branding
our luxury hotel, showcasing its unique features
and promoting an exclusive experience.’
PATRICK KELTON, GENERAL MANAGER, WATSONS BAY HOTEL
