Lenovo Precious Metals: Turning E-Waste Into Art


A bold campaign showcasing Lenovo’s Asset Recovery Services, spotlighting the value of end-of-life hardware through a creative collaboration with sustainable jewelry designer Holly Ryan.

The Challenge

Lenovo’s Asset Recovery Services provides safe and compliant hardware recycling for businesses. They wanted to highlight this and show the value of end-of-life hardware in a creative way that can appeal to B2B audiences but cross over to consumers


We partnered with Holly Ryan, a passionate sustainable jewellery designer, to extract precious metals from recycled hardware to create a jewellery line to symbolise the value that resides in the hardware.

We created a suite of content across multiple platforms that documented her creative process, driving to a dedicated landing page featuring more information about Lenovo’s Asset Recovery Services, including a downloadable whitepaper about the circular economy and more video assets.  and video assets across multiple platforms.

My Role

I spearheaded content development and production, fleshing out a strategy across programmatic video, LinkedIn, Instagram, Facebook and We Are 8, ensuring alignment with campaign objectives.

Working in collaboration with our production partners Sure Studios, I helped create the scripts, oversee production, and manage assets for distribution on various platforms, including the new sustainability-focused social platform We Are 8, which had just launched in Australia.

The Numbers

Aside from the impressive digital metrics, with the CTR 175% above LinkedIn’s industry benchmark, the campaign drove a 42% increase in sales opportunities and a 2.2 increase in local reputation according to Reptrack, 4% increase in consumer brand awareness and 2.6 Tonnes of carbon emissions offset.
