Health insurer ahm has unveiled its new brand platform, You’re Good, the first major brand campaign produced by newly appointed creative agency, The Monkeys, part of Accenture Interactive.

The Monkeys won the ahm business after a competitive pitch in 2020.

Off the back of a year in which Australians and the health care system have been faced with unprecedented challenges, ahm was looking for a brand platform that better reflected the more meaningful role that they are playing in their customers’ lives.

Via simple, easy and affordable products – ahm customers can spend less time worrying about their personal health insurance and get back to enjoying life.

The new brand campaign consists of three new TV spots, social, internal and CRM integration — and will launch alongside ahm’s new integrated TV partnership with the Australian Open.

"Over the past three years, we’ve experienced a great deal of change. As a business, we've experienced significant growth internally, and as a brand, we've redefined how we look, feel and sound with our new brand platform," ahm head of marketing Amanda Romeo says. 

“Our aspirations have also grown as we look to diversify into new services, so we knew our brand also needed to grow and allow more flex for greater opportunity moving forward.

“We are excited by our new partnership with The Monkeys, along with the new brand platform and creative we’ve developed together. We are now in a more powerful position to build on our trajectory and to play a more valuable role in our customers’ lives.”

ahm will also be launching new work for its category leading offers and products, including Flexi-Packages and Black50 Extras.

“The ahm brand already had a really distinctive look and feel, but playing a more emotional role pushed us to try to build greater humanity and storytelling into the creative," The Monkeys chief creative officer Ant Keogh says.

"With the evolution of the more sophisticated animation, story-telling style and character development — we’re really excited about the new direction the work has taken.”
