Founded in 1933, api is considered a historical brand for the distribution of petroleum products in Italy and has consolidated its leading position among the main Italian players in the reference market.
2005, the year in which api acquired IP, marked an important milestone in the company’s history. The acquisition signified an important change that allowed api to affirm its leadership position in Italy, increasing to over 4,200 sales points, with a market share of around 10%.
One consequence of this acquisition was the merging of two business realities with different cultures and identities:
∞ api, a brand with a noble past, is small, close and reassuring.
∞ IPis the stronger, more dynamic brand.
For more than 12 months, the merger has been undergoing physical implementation throughout the network as a single new commercial brand, “IP Gruppo api”. This trademark originates from the union of the two existing brands and from the need to give equal value to each one, with the api group ensured the rank of corporate company and IP becoming the commercial brand.
The process of rebranding the entire network will continue throughout 2010 and conclude in 2011. The new IP will be officially presented to the general public in May 2010, for the occasion of the World Cup in South Africa.

简而言之：谁是您的客户 (无论是可见还是“匿名” :)
This present tender offer is aimed at the creation of two short TV adverts (known as “billboards” in technical jargon), whose primary objective is to increase awareness of the new brand (currently the api IP brand is acknowledged as holding 3rd place in the petroleum market) and secondarily, the official partnership with the FIGC (Italian Football Federation). For years IP has viewed this partnership as strategically importance, and it also provides benefits that can be used to increase consumer's; desire to choose the new brand.
The focus of the communication will be the new IP brand and its Italianness. Italianness is a cardinal value deeply linked to the origins of the two Italian companies (api and IP) and is today expressed in the new "IP Gruppo api" trademark, whose colours are the blue background of IP and the green, white and red on the api group's spark.
The main message that should emerge from all the formats is the brand, through the use of the new IP logo.
The Italianness should emerge through a characteristic look and feel, which can be combined with images and/or musical accompaniment. Here is the detailed information required for the development of the various formats:
Two different adverts are to be created, each with double versions and mutually coherent:
5 SECOND ADVERT
A. Brand TV Advert - this will be centred on the communication of the new IP brand (followed in a second frame by GRUPPO API), animated by graphic effects (e.g. animated/moving balls);
B. Brand and FIGC Partnership TV Advert - this will repeat the look and feel of the previously-mentioned brand TV advert, with the addition of the FIGC logo together with the copy: “IP PARTNER UFFICIALE DELLA NAZIONALE ITALIANA DI CALCIO” (IP OFFICIAL PARTNER OF THE ITALIAN NATIONAL FOOTBALL TEAM).
10 SECOND ADVERT
A. Brand TV Advert - also here the main aspect will be the centrality and recognition of the new IP brand (followed in a second frame by GRUPPO API). The communication will feature photographic images or graphic effects (e.g. animated/moving balls) or video (by choice);
B. Brand and FIGC Partnership Advert - this will feature the same graphics as the brand TV Advert mentioned previously, with graphic integration of football through associated images, for example: cheering fans; celebration; power; footballs, etc.
The video should highlight the official sponsorship between IP and the Italian Football Federation and show the FIGC logo together with the words: “IP PARTNER UFFICIALE DELLA NAZIONALE ITALIANA DI CALCIO” (IP OFFICIAL PARTNER OF THE ITALIAN NATIONAL FOOTBALL TEAM).
The creative work in all the proposals, for each format, should be supported by an audio/musical accompaniment. The choice of audio and musical (not vocal) accompaniment should coherently accompany the animated graphics.
In the adverts where space permits, the new IP trademark should be combined with the pay off “L’ENERGIA DELL’ITALIA” (THE ENERGY OF ITALY), which is currently used in the company's institutional campaign. The creative work and graphics kit for this are attached to the brief.

品牌 Builder 想要目标受众从您的创作中，思考 / 感觉 / 有所行动的东西。
∞ 人们会想到 / 感觉到的一些事：
上面这些例子非常具体，而通常 Brief 提案是感性的。那样更好，因为可以带来灵感！
For both subjects:
“IP is a great, all-Italian company” because it unites that which makes Italy great and unique, namely Passion and Energy.
Addition for subject B only:
“The desire to be together”, confirming the partnership that binds the company to the FIGC, to Italy and therefore to the national team that represents it on the field.
Here below is a list of adjectives and values that could best describe the new brand:
∞ Italianness: a fundamental value, since, as recent research has shown, both api and IP are “felt” to be Italian companies and it is fundamentally important to preserve this value and adapt it to the changed situation so that it remains a fixed point of the new defined image;
∞ Trust and closeness: the reasearch carried out indicated these as pillars on which to base the company-customer relationship and therefore an axis on which to establish and develop the communication of the new brand, with a more direct tone ("I'm close to you", "I understand you", "I offer you what you need");
∞ Renewed Tradition: the expression of tradition as a value that has been renewed arises from the need to preserve the historical experience of the two brands (customers of both appear quite attached to the past) and adapt it to the developments of the present time, combining innovation with respect for tradition;
∞ Leadership: this is the challenge that the new brand can bring: “being big once more”, as the IP brand managed to be during the 1980s and 1990s, in terms of sponsorships, promotions and communication.
The two adverts can be aired during football breaks (e.g. during the 2010 World Cup) and other types of break, i.e. within any TV schedule and break (e.g. during weather programmes, news, current affairs, soaps and TV films). The adverts can be at the start, during the interval, or at the end of the programme, either in full-screen or as on-screen animation within the programme (a strip across the bottom of the screen).

Together with the creative proposal you should also specify:
∞ any references and images that will have to be purchased by api;
∞ musical references (preferably library and royalty-free music).
The creative proposals should be presented in a format that can be viewed with Windows Media Player on any PC and take possible creative limitations into account, i.e. seeking to use images in the advert that are suitable for all the various TV channels.
The winner of the tender offer will also be requested to adapt the formats of both creative proposals from 5” to 4” and from 10” to 7”.
