Describe the campaign/entry:
Our idea was to create a brand book in which lovers’ hands act as a picture book. In short, we selected hands to
be the media. A couple becomes something special when their hands first touch. Their pledge of love, in the form of
a ring, rests on their hands. And even when death is about to part them, one will surely hold the other’s hand to the
very end. A couple’s story begins, flourishes, and finishes with hands. Hands, the ultimate media to express love.
Creative Execution:
We set up a projection system modeled after a New York streetlight at Tiffany’s Ginza Signature store. When a
couple put their hands under the streetlight, an animated story is projected on their hands. When two hands touch
and open like a book, the story unveils itself by the sensor which detects their hand movements, At the conclusion
of the story, the projector displays a wedding proposal and fits an engagement ring on the woman’s ring finger. We
realized an original story with scenario options and autograph by each couple which is projected on hands at the
end of story.
100 couples took part in the event in 6 weeks. On one day, waiting time required as long as 5 hours, and
we had to turn away 200 couples. Some people made use of the event to actually propose to their partner. - 58.6%
of the participants shared their experience. - 71.5 % of the people had a favorable impression of the brand. -
Triggered an intention to purchase in about 50% of the participants.
To create a bond between young people and the brand, we selected a digital strategy, a new domain of high
interest for the target, even though Tiffany is a traditional brand. And even though it’s a digital strategy, we still
used hands as the actual media. When their hands touch physically, lovers are touched emotionally, creating the
most primal interaction between two humans.
