Describe the brief from the client
MEDIABOOKS needed to boost sales and to achieve that, they needed to target young people.
So the brief was that, encourage young people to read more.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
Young people think they don't like to read. They say they have no time, that reading is boring, etc.
But it's not true.
The challenge was to encourage this sceptical target to read books.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
We realized that young people read a lot more than they think.
They are logged 24 hours to social media, reading other friends' status, tweets, posts, comments...

So, we did simple posters that looked like photocopied books, the only ones that young people read in university (because they are forced to).

Instead of a novel, we put real text that people read when they log into Facebook or Twitter.
Real –and useless- reading we all do everyday, that helped Mediabooks become relevant for the Portuguese consumers.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The campaign -and specially the thought behind it- was really successful among young people and we already launched a bigger platform in Facebook called Facebook Books. A series of online books that you can only read like a Facebook profiles.
