The Online-Interactive Campaign, activated in Fall 2022, was a digital, multi-channel, brand awareness campaign called “Destined for Brilliance”. It aimed to connect with UC Online’s audience through authentic, relatable content that recognizes their challenges, opportunities, and realities. Generally, advertising for higher education can be stagnant, turn-key, and lacks personality. Oodle’s creative was inspiring and empowering and helped build a brand identity for UC Online that is unique, stands out from other online universities, and builds brand equity.

The campaign included animated digital banner ads, static social media ads and videos that were placed in a variety of channels.

Winning Silver at the Addys reflects the strong partnership between Oodle and the University of Cincinnati Online, their shared commitment to excellence, and their impact on the advertising industry in the region and beyond.

The Cincinnati Addys and the American Advertising Awards provide a valuable platform for advertising professionals and students to showcase their talent, creativity, and impact. Winning an Addy is not only a recognition of excellence but also an opportunity to connect with industry peers and leaders, gain exposure, and contribute to the growth and development of the advertising industry.
