High Five: Socials That Pack a Punch


Sports creative director at We Are Social, Matt Walker, highlights just how innovative social advertising can be from the fashion industry to football

High Five: Socials That Pack a Punch

With three of my favourite pieces of work from the last year being from the world of fashion, it has me thinking that they’re really showing us how it should be done across social. Fashion is winning. Random is winning. Watford FC are winning - just not that often on the pitch...

Gucci x The North Face x Francis Bourgeois - 'Oakworth Station'

Agency: In-house at Highsnobiety

Watford FC - TikTok

I could have picked a number of Prem sides for an example of good organic social, and they’re all in the bottom half of the league. Watford gets the TikTok platform. They keep it super current, they lean into trends, it’s all fun all the time. I expect it to be even better next season when they’re in the Championship...
