RAC launches new creative Change for the better platform and campaign via The Brand Agency
Yesterday saw the launch of a new creative platform and campaign from RAC, created in partnership with The Brand Agency and Group Yellow.
‘Change for the better’ brings to life the role that RAC has had over the past 117 years, driving and embracing change for the better, and demonstrates how the organisation continues to help transform our state with positive actions that help make WA safer, more sustainable, and better connected.
The new creative platform is designed to shift perceptions of the organisation from a product and service provider to an inspiring brand making positive change in WA.
‘Change for the better’ soft-launched in key OOH sites to build anticipation for the campaign launch on 11th September. The integrated campaign is running across TV, OOH, radio, social, press, search, digital video and audio channels.
“As one of the most iconic brands in WA, revitalising it is an absolute privilege. The brand team here at RAC, alongside our agency partners, have worked tirelessly to ensure the creative platform brings to life the RAC brand story in an authentic and engaging way for our members and the wider WA community,” said Haylee Felton General Manager of Brand and Marketing at RAC.
Felton added: “We did a lot of discovery work throughout the process, which showed that people know RAC well for our products and services, but there is a clear opportunity to raise awareness about the incredible social and community impact RAC has driven since its very beginnings.”
Hannah Muirhead, Head of Brand Strategy, The Brand Agency, said: “For too long, the revolutionary spirit of RAC has been lurking in the shadows. This campaign aims to bring the history and impact of RAC to life and revitalise the brand to help ensure its success for another hundred years. We feel very proud to have played our part in telling the story of a WA icon.”
Dean Hunt, Executive Creative Director, The Brand Agency, said: “As the original changemakers, RAC has been driving positive change in Western Australia for over 100 years. With no shareholders, they’ve able to give back to members and the wider community in so many ways. This launch creative celebrates those past achievements, while continuing to drive the brand forward. Big thanks to the team at RAC, The Brand Agency, Beautiful Pictures, and Cue Sound.”

Other than the super cheesy ‘everybody run together’ shot at the end, this is a really nice spot and great local talent list used to produce it. This is the kind of stuff we want to see coming out of WA. Well done team
It’s amazing how all the things RAC ‘changed’ somehow happened in every other city in the world too. ‘We encouraged the WA government to do things that were inevitable’ isn’t quite as catchy though I guess. The intention might be; ‘hey, look at us, we really care about you and your future’ but the delivery is just; ‘hey, look at us’.
