Describe the brief from the client
Even though Emart is Korea’s No.1 discount store, it has a weakness. Its sales drastically decrease during lunch time. Therefore, Cheil Worldwide would like to find a way to increase sales from 12p.m. to 1p.m. to reinforce their market leader position.

Creative Execution

We installed a shadow QR Code only available from 12p.m. to 1p.m. When people scan the QR Code it is automatically linked to the SunnySale mobile homepage.
The users receive special offers including a $12 coupon. When users make a purchase on the online store, it is directly delivered home.


Describe the creative solution to the brief/objective.

How can we make it possible? We gave people a unique lunch shopping experience using the sunlight at noon and a shadow QR Code.


Describe the results in as much detail as possible.

Over 12,000 coupons issued and new Emart membership increased by 58% in February from the previous month.
Sales at Emart mail increased 25% during lunch hours in February and media coverage on the shadow QR Code promotion over the past month. Also, the most notable result of the SunnySale is that it made people ‘Sunny’ for at least one day.

The Direct marketing titled SUNNY SALE was done by Cheil Seoul advertising agency for product: Emart (brand: Emart) in South Korea. It was released in May 2012.
