Bidvest Bank: Virtual Production Event

the what

Bidvest Bank faced the urgent challenge of communicating a critical and imperative message to their staff nationwide, spread across multiple locations.

With no time for a roadshow and the importance of the message, it was vital that the CEO deliver it personally.

Having worked with us in the past and knowing they could count on us to make it happen, Bidvest Bank called on us to help with an innovative solution: a live-streamed virtual event.

With just a two-week lead time, we were excited to step in and ensure the message reached every employee in real-time with the impact and urgency it deserved.

Despite the tight two-week timeline, our proactive project management ensured flawless execution. The event surpassed expectations, demonstrating our ability to innovate under pressure and solidifying our partnership with Bidvest Bank.

Where creativity
meets purpose

I started JAW in 2010 as my main ‘before I’m 30’ goal. The vision was to create a design agency that wasn’t ‘cool.’ Where you don’t wear sunglasses indoors, hobnob with pretentious crowds or only take on CSI projects to win awards instead of actually making a difference! A place where slippers and a sense of humour are a must, happy hearts fill the space, and design is seen as a tool for change.
