During exam season we landed on campus with Nando’s aura booth. Encouraging students to take a break, check their energy and refuel - keeping students fired up for their exams.

We asked students to tell us their mood and paired them with their aura order - a perfect match from Nando’s menu. A chill-out zone provided the perfect space to relax and enjoy a free Nando’s fix.

A virtual aura booth hosted on NandosYard.online provided an opportunity for those who couldn’t attend to read their vibe and #PlaceYourAura.

Live Events

Nando's Yard On Tour

Bringing local DJs, exclusive merch, and tipples into the night. Nando’s Yard On Tour got students across the country partying under the iconic Nando’s Barcelos.

To celebrate students’ return to Uni, we took Nando’s Yard on tour. Bringing non-stop beats and spicy eats to students in Birmingham, Bristol and Leeds. Each stop on the tour heroed the local nightlife scene in each city. Alongside unmissable headliners, we created an opportunity for up-and-coming student talent to join the line-up - putting the spotlight on extra-hot talent in each city.

20 Up-and-Coming Artists

Nando's wanted to understand and connect with students in a culturally relevant way. And in doing so, position Nando's as a brand that can play a meaningful role in students' lives.

We produced a series of live streams which showcased a diverse range of up-and-coming artists from music colleges and universities across the country. Putting the spotlight on the hottest local talent, Nando’s helped aspiring musicians carve a path into the music industry. Each live stream was housed on Nando’s Gen Z microsite, NandosYard.online. The live-stream series was a huge success, with two of the student artists featured going on to be signed to a record label.

Website Development

Nando’s Yard 2.0

Raptor worked with Nando’s to develop nandosyard.online, a microsite dedicated to delivering curated brand content for a Gen Z audience

A hub for music, art and culture, nandosyard.online showcases extra-hot content from Nando’s brand ambassadors. After three successful years online we gave the site a refresh, re-designing the site with a new look and feel targeted to a youth audience.
