Ikea’s ‘fight boring’ brand revamp pays homage to Brave Heart

Swedish home furnishing goliath Ikea has revamped its brand positioning around the need for Australians to be more imaginative with their home furnishings.

Created by The Monkeys, the ‘Have a gö’ campaign pays homage to Mel Gibson film Brave Heart.

Though the TV spot will spearhead the launch, outdoor, print, radio, digital, social media and PR will follow in the lead up to the launch of Ikea Springvale in Melbourne on 8 September.
