Iconic London Projections to Promote New Charlotte Tilbury Fragrance

To coincide with the launch of the new Charlotte Tilbury fragrance, MKTG implemented guerrilla projections across London. The campaign targeted landmark sites as well as iconic London scenes to maximise the impacts and cover as many locations as possible across the capital. Photographs were captured at each location and shared through social and online media.

O2 Campaign Demonstrates Strength of the Network to Audiences

In the wake of being voted by U Switched as providing the best network coverage, O2 launch their new digital out-of-home (DOOH) campaign on 12th August 2016.
To illustrate the great coverage O2 provides, the campaign promotes the tens of thousands of free O2 Wi-Fi hotspots across the UK, as well as to demonstrate how well each location is covered. Utilising O2’s own business data, Iconic DOOH locations have been hand-selected within UK cities where O2 have particularly high levels of 4G coverage and free Wi-Fi spots.
The campaign will use Route data to establish the relevant city for each location and, using the Liveposter platform, O2 will dynamically serve localised messages displaying the number of Wi-Fi hotspots available in each specific area, along with the actual percentage of coverage in the area. Due to the screen copy being location specific, the campaign inspires audiences to feel that O2 coverage follows you everywhere you go. By optimising the copy and making it relevant to each city, O2 aims to increase brand awareness and reinforce their positive network message.
Forward Media have worked with Posterscope, using Liveposter technology and VCCP to tailor copy dynamically so that every single DOOH screen is relevant to each location.

The interactive game runs across 38 cinema locations in close proximity to Pets at Home stores, inviting pet-loving cinema-goers to digitally feed animals for a chance to win vouchers.

The campaign incentivises participants to visit the store which is very close to the 38 cinemas. We look forward to seeing the results.”

Augmented Reality Extending the Potential of Out-of-Home

In anticipation of the August 19 release of Nine Lives in cinemas and encourage consumer engagement, Posterscope, Exterion Media and MKTG executed a consumer experience that included a competition to win Nine Lives soft-toys, further promoting the film release.
The activation took place in a Pokémon Go hot-spot and Pokémon hunters arrived in multitudes, looking for their latest catch.
Once arriving at the activation site, with Nine Lives branded Mr. Fuzzypants soft toys, movie popcorn and eye-catching OOH creative, participants were welcomed by brand ambassadors.
When they caught their Pokémon, consumers could enter the competition by capturing a photo of their Pokémon with the OOH creative in the background and uploading their photo to Twitter with the hashtag #GOTTACATCHTHECAT
Over 3,000 consumers took part in the activity, with 100 people entering the competition, in an experience that was a fun day out for the whole family.
The determination to catch Pokémon was high, with some participants spending up to half an hour battling Pokémon in the square to win the prize!
Michael Scammell, Deputy Head of Marketing, Lionsgate UK “The Pokémon Go craze has continued to grow and grow, so with this partnership we wanted to stretch the boundaries to explore what this could mean for our OOH and tactical experiential activity promoting our upcoming release of Nine Lives.
“Combining the popular Pokémon game and the charming “Mr Fuzzypants” from Nine Lives provided a stand-out interactive experience for our consumers that allowed us to engage with them on a different level.”
Jason Cotterrell, Managing Director of Exterion Media UK “It’s fantastic to see Lionsgate linking our premium large-format screen at Westfield Stratford to the experiential space underneath – shoppers in an active mind-set weren’t able to miss this brilliant campaign, and they also had the opportunity to catch a Pokémon too!”
Glen Wilson, Managing Director, Posterscope UK “This campaign takes location based marketing to a new level, leveraging the power of location and consumer trends, we have combined DOOH, experiential and the latest consumer mobile behaviour to make for a reactive element to this cinema release campaign.
“We don’t know how long Pokémon Go will remain a popular hit but we knew this weekend was the one to leverage its novelty in the UK. Combining the popularity of this new location-based craze with the reactive capabilities of DOOH, we customised our OOH space – branding the experiential space and adapting the screen copy to incorporate Pokémon-esque language.”

Camelot in conjunction with Vizeum, Posterscope, AMVBBDO and MKTG looked to make James Blunt’s dream of serenading the nation a reality. The campaign, which is being executed at Bluewater Retail and Shopping Centre, uses a JCDecaux Interactive Digital 6 Sheet equipped with a polarized mirror effect which allowed a holographic image of James Blunt to appear as you use the mirror, and a bank of pre-recorded responses that are activated by a motion sensor as passers-by engage with the mirror. Using this polarized technology (that has never been used before) to customise an OOH screen has enabled the campaign to drive incremental reach in a key environment.
