CASETiFY are well known for their expansive range of phone cases, but not often the first to spring to mind when it comes to gifting over the festive period. 

Using the brand’s signature red boxes, KesselsKramer London wrote a series of films, bringing to life not only the range of products sold by CASETiFY - from watch straps to phone charms as well as the well known cases - but also the festive spirit, each film focusing on the delightful suspense before you unwrap a gift and the experience of receiving an unexpected present from the giver.

Charlie Bowden said “when we wrote the scripts, we knew we wanted a twist on the traditional festive films that are everywhere at this time of year. We loved the idea of using CASETiFY’s festive red boxes to bring a sense of surreality to the experience of giving and receiving gifts - and we were more than delighted when Zac agreed to direct them for us. His signature comic style, together with Malcom Goldie’s take on seasonal music, really helped us nail the brief.”

Kathryn Man, Senior Producer at CASETiFY said of the brief “we had many products we wanted to hero as a part of this campaign - as well as our phone cases we also wanted to show the broad range of products that might be less well known to our consumers, as well as positioning them as an ideal gift for the festive period. We are delighted with the way our signature red boxes have been celebrated along with the gifts in the series and are looking forward to seeing our products under the tree this year!”
