The Work of the Month and the number one in Digital is the campaign “Killer Discounts”signed by

discount, a live streaming event and 3 KFC limited menus. The players challenge their fans to beat them in the games in order to benefit from the given discounts. The creative team was formed of: Ionut Raicu | Art
Director& Madalina Pop| Copywriter.

KFC does a slam dunk (or a triple toe loop) on simplicity, natural and impact, at the same time. An idea that turns upside out the paradigm in which the brand are chasing their consumers,”said Ioana Gheorghita, Brand Strategist & ADC*RO member.
