Peninsula Perspectives - Hong Kong

The Brief

For their Peninsula Perspectives campaign, The Peninsula entrusted Carbon with developing a global campaign concept that united the brand’s properties under one universal theme but shone a light on the domestic market hotel staff. The brief was to create something emotive, raw and captivating that the audience could relate to on a human level.

Our Solution

We developed an episodic approach to the creative, giving each character a monologue that was true to their unique backstories and their relationship to their host cities. To emulate the deeply personal stories being told, we imagined a style and tonality that played to a universal theme at campaign level, while ensuring each film had an authentic visual identity that was representative of the individual narrative.

Connie’s (Driver) story is her own. She speaks of being a restless child who was always seeking to move and explore. More importantly, how this led to her being the first female driver for Peninsula hotels.
