The Instituto Británico is an English language institute with schools all over Latin America. Agency Young and Rubicam Perú worked with our illustrator Igor Bastidas to create a humorous print campaign that would also incite the public to consider improving their English.
The illustrations play on the difficulties on expressing oneself clearly in a second language—especially one learned as an adult. Particularly the frustration of being misunderstood due to inexact pronunciation. The illustrations show what’s going on inside the brains of speakers, and a speech bubble with a homonym in English. The tagline for the campaign exhorted people to “say what they mean to say” by enrolling in Instituto Británico’s courses.
The print campaign won 2 Cannes Lions Awards in 2013
