Parkdean Resorts: “Family Escape” - 30s

Parkdean (née Park) Resorts advertising has been chronic at best in DAVID's experience, so it was about time the brand pulled their socks up. This 30" ad is a step in the right direction, as agency Cravens and director Will Williamson offer a fetching look at family holidays with nary a face mask or lateral flow test swab in sight.

Unforced and naturalistic, Williamson and DP Adric Watson’s visuals suggest Parkdean resorts are a credible option as the staycation boom continues. The ongoing impact of Covid-19 on travel abroad make the domestic market more competitive than ever, so it pays to make your offer look as handsome as possible.
