Skype case study: Vans lets callers design skate park together

Vans is a brand known for youthful and creative self-expression. Working with Vans and Rooster Worldwide, Microsoft built a concept campaign on Skype that takes advantage of Skype’s unique ability to connect people in rich ways.

As a reward, the Skype callers are taken on a video ride of their park with a Vans Pro skater. The park also becomes a landing page for Vans to merchandise its latest shoes and show video recaps of Vans Pros in action. Skype users could then share the Vans content and videos with their friends.

Windows 8 case study: All Saints app recreates 'Byzantine banquet'

This prototype created by BMB fuses the hip and edgy brand identity of All Saints clothing with the beautiful aesthetics of a traditional fashion shoot or TV spot. Within the Windows 8 app, the user is presented with a range of different perspectives on a decadent, Byzantine banqueting scene. On clicking, a full screen window opens up with 180 degree scrolling screen that reveals all of the bohemian guests – including artists and musicians – modelling items from the latest All Saints clothing range. The scene juxtaposes elegant photography in the foreground with a dark, lush background, oozing chic and style. For added cool, the sound effects follow the scrolling screen, moving from the left earphone to the right and vice-versa inline with the ad’s motion. ‘Hot spots’ – represented by All Saints’ skull logo – encourage deeper exploration and a path to purchase.

Converse’s Domaination campaign makes innovative use of paid search keyphrase bidding

csconverse2.jpg

Converse, the global footwear brand, took a novel and innovative way to connect with their teenage audience online. They took the Google paid search channel and turned an advertising space into a game experience. Rather than trying to capture the attention of their audience in the search channel through the normal way - of bidding against other brands on popular search terms - they decided to do the opposite. Converse identified peaking search terms via Google Zeitgeist and then bid against these low competition low cost phrases. Instead of presenting the viewer with an ad – they started a dialogue through the ad copy and dozens of interconnected microsites that engaged the viewer in a deeper content rich experience. Not only did this engage the audience in a total unexpected way – but also still helped drive large volumes of traffic to converse.com
