About the brand
Yrisalways close to the weather - but also close to people.
Weather is most important when it affects us, humans. The vast majority of us don’t care about yesterday’s weather. We need to know whether we have to change to winter tires orif the kids have to wear a sweateror sunscreen. When Yris close to people and their needs concerning weather, our communication becomes more emotional and effective.
The summer of 2020 was different for all of us. The pandemic was at full effect.We all understood the serosity and uncertainty; this would affect our lives.
A summer holiday usuallyoffers the necessary recreation. And Norwegians, with our long and cold winters, is no different. No onetravels abroadmorethan us during the summer. Unfortunately, it wasn’t possible to take a break from the corona epidemic, nor to travel from it.
The 2020 holidays weredestined to be very different from what we are used to.
However, there is always a positive side to things. Norwegians were bound tostay home and explore their country, together with their family. Norwegians prepared well. We saw that cabin and RV rental and outdoors equipment sales was at a record high. There was little doubt that the Norwegian weather and temperatures, both on land and at sea, would be essential to people this summer.
With this as a backdrop, the idea of creating a Yr-promo that positively highlights summer and Norwegian holidaysseemed both correct and important. Also, Yr launched a smart new feature in the service; they now also provided water temperature for all beaches, all along the Norwegian coastline.
