The strategy: In an effort to create awareness for Canada as an alternative holiday destination for the Australian sun worshipper, we developed a new mobile brand experience: With myTAN you were able to control your tan, track your overall sun exposure time, screen your tanning environment and do a skin exam on a regular basis. This long term benefit for myTAN users was linked to the functionality of exploring sunny beaches in Canada, the northern hemisphere, with less hazardous ultraviolet (UV) radiation.
In an effort to create awareness for the Yukon Territory as a unique holiday destination, we developed a digital marketing campaign and established a new, fascinating mobile service for travellers – the iQueue© – a global queuing network. It turned out, that we created a new social movement: iQueuing.
The core campaign message was: “Discover the Yukon – vacation without line-ups.” We invited tourists across 7 key international markets who were waiting in long line-ups to get swopped by iQueuers so that they had more time to explore nearby areas. We made that possible by establishing a new real-time mobile service called iQueue. Behind that service was a network of friendly people managed and organized through a website and mobile mesg. platform. The app got featured just recently on BBC
Just recently, I thought about a new app for the iPhone/iPad and within this post, I want to share a four step creative process (or call it scenario design), that I followed to develop the idea and make it presentable. This creative process usually takes place before the rapid prototyping - it’s more a methodology for communicating ideas effectively. Ok, so very briefly; this is how I usually sketch my first drafts. I write down the vision of an idea in one sentence (usually the main benefit) and give “the thing” a name.
1. At the office: Media people love to check-in everywhere. It’s no surprise that the mayor of an ad agency is actually an employee. But foursquare is for customers. How can customers ever compete with the 1500-ish something check-ins and become a mayor of a venue to receive rewards? Thanks for checking in!
