Transcend Media Group Triumphs at APA and MSK Awards

Integrated Marketing and Communications Agency Transcend Media Group was feted as a leader in the youth segment during the 2016 MSK & APA awards by scooping the Best Relaunch campaign for Trust condoms in a campaign dubbed “Kuwa True” by PSI. In addition, the agency bagged 1st runners up prize for Best launch of pambazuka National Lottery. Separately TMG bagged an award for best integrated Campaign for the Kenya Power Switch Campaign during the APA awards.

The campaign dubbed “Kuwa True” was to move the Trust brand perspective from an “ancient brand” to a brand that understands the needs of its key consumers who want to be associated with brands that they are unshamed to be seen with. On the other hand, “IT’S BIG” campaign was meant to totally change the gaming landscape in the country owing to the fact that the gaming industry was being seen in bad light and was associated as a get rich quick scheme.
