Describe the brief from the client
The brief was simple: What role could Ogilvy play at SXSW that was unique and different from every other sponsor and agency?

Describe the challenges and key objectives
The objectives were to:
- Add value.
- Confound the expectations of those who know us or think they know us.
- Establish Ogilvy as a different kind of agency for many who are unfamiliar with who we are and what we do.
- Create opportunities to recruit and attract new business.
- Have some fun.
The challenge is that SXSW is a marketer’s paradise while simultaneously being a nightmare. The audience is highly valuable and intelligent, though sceptical of brands demanding their attention, of which there are many with significantly more money and physical exposure than Ogilvy.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
The delightful and complicated reality of the Ogilvy Notes designs is that they are composed in real-time. When a presenter begins their presentation, the design commences. When they are finished, the composition is complete. Each design is unique to the content, presenter, response of the room, and style of the graphic facilitator. The variety and complexity of the information contained in each note is a testament to the flexibility of the idea, and the talent of our graphic facilitators.
