    Nearmap’s Funny Campaign Highlights Hobbies We Can Pick Up With Time On Our Hands

    Nearmap has released ‘Truth is in the Detail’, a new brand platform that demonstrates how its high-resolution aerial imagery, city-scale 3D content, and Artificial Intelligence data sets can give organizations an edge. The campaign was rolled out with The Monkeys.

    The integrated campaign is set to run in Australia across broadcast television, social media, and digital. The campaign film, titled ‘The Savant’, was directed by Owen Trevor at Rabbit. A funny spot, the film features a needy boss who doesn’t understand how his employee has so much free time on her hand. Well, she’s using Nearmap and thus can whittle a flute from a carrot.

    “Based and founded in Australia, Nearmap provides much more than aerial maps, and uses its very own patented camera systems, processing software and geospatial tools,” said The Monkeys Creative Director, Thomas Marcusson.


    “‘The Savant’ TV spots show that humour can be really effective in B2B, striking a note in a field normally dominated by more sober content.”

    “Nearmap has been the secret-sauce for many businesses across Australia, New Zealand and North America for more than a decade,” added Nearmap Chief Customer and Marketing Officer, Harvey Sanchez.


    “The pandemic is pushing people to look for tools that help them navigate and cope with a world that is changing in hugely challenging ways. Regardless of what’s happening in the world, companies can depend on Nearmap to deliver data and detail at a scale that has never been provided before. In the first above-the-line campaign from Nearmap, developed with The Monkeys, we hope to deliver that message in a relatable and fun way.”
