In a world divided by colour, Wonda Coffee says, “Nah, we’d rather celebrate all colours.”


This Hari Kebangsaan, to celebrate 64 years of being a multicultural country, Wonda Coffee has brewed up a campaign about unity despite diversity in the most unexpected and cheeky way.

Together with creative agency, Naga DDB Tribal, the brand launched a film addressing colour discrimination by featuring cups of different colours, shapes and sizes.

Yup, cups.

United colours of Wonda

Alvin Teoh, Chief Creative Officer of Naga DDB Tribal shares how the idea sparked and the project all came together. “It’s nice when both the marketer and the agency share the same sentiments about putting something bold out there. The thought of spreading the message of equality and unity in such a playful manner was too good an opportunity not to take. So when the idea took shape, we felt so good we just scribbled and doodled a bunch of stuff on a mahjong paper and presented it like that.”

“You could feel the excitement in the room. We sensed it instantly; it was a go. And to think that the brief came via a random phone call at 10pm because the client felt inspired with a thought. It was so contagious, we caught the spirit of it all and had fun all the way; from brainstorm to presentation to production”, Alvin added. “I think sometimes, some of the nicest work happens when you don’t crumble from overthinking things. In a world obsessed with data, there is still a critical role for intuition. For both the marketeer and the agency. There’s a motto used by the SAS (British Special Forces) that inspires me – Who dares wins. I think that holds true in marketing and advertising too.”

There’s more to look forward to. Under the same campaign, Wonda Coffee will be launching a series of four mini films that are as hot and enticing as a cup of Wonda Coffee. Make sure to keep an eye out for it and remember – before you judge a ‘cup’ by its colour, all colours are wonderful when they’re Wonda-ful inside. This Hari Kebangsaan and Hari Malaysia, let’s raise our multicoloured cups in celebration of our country.
