Castorama proves its innovation by using traditional decoration support to make it a real customers’ service. It is a new way for the company to show its understanding of real expectations and to provide them with an original and creative answer. The initial aim of this operation was to give a positive image of the brand on social networks: Castorama, convinced of the reality and success of THE MAGIC WALLPAPER, made it a real product referenced in store with more than 18 000 units for sale (traditional children's wallpaper is normally made at 8 000 units). All of the company's departments were involved in the project, from the marketing department, the project initiator, to the manufacturing teams, to the product teams.A project that mobilises the employees and the clients around it.
Campaign Description:
Castorama is the brand who knows us and who accompanies us in all the moments of our life. These moments of life are especially those that we, parents, live with our children.And moments spent with your family are rare. That’s why they’re so precious.Bedtime is the only time of day when parents and children are really spend time together. We have turn this precious moment into a magical moment.We invent a new discovery medium, an accessible, fun and innovative way to tell stories to children: THE MAGIC WALLPAPER, the first wallpaper that gives access to innumerable adventures.
The MAGIC WALLPAPER is based on a visual recognition technology: by scanning a character from the wallpaper, a story is proposed. By scanning a character with another character, a new story is generated. There are as many stories as possible combinations.The user launches the application. When approaching a phone or a tablet of a character on the wallpaper, the application detects it automatically and proposes then :- the scan of a second character- reading or listening to the story associated with the character.By clicking on the button associated with the scan of a second character, the user is invited to perform a second scan. The application then associates the 2 characters and proposes a new story.In playback mode, the user scrolls the text and can click on active buttons that launch a sound design. The goal is to increase interest and stimulate the imagination of the child.In audio mode, the screen broadcasts an animated night view and the story is played back to the child.
Castorama is the historic brand of DIY, decoration and home furnishings in France. This lead market sees some competitors taking an increasingly prominent place, bringing the brand down a step on the podium of the 3 strongest players.Also, Castorama wishes to regain its leading position and emerge by capitalizing on three major objectives:• Generate positive buzz around the brand• Equip the brand with a strong innovation dimension• Re-energize in-store traffic.With a budget of € 100K, Castorama wants to offer its customers a new service that allows them to make all the moments of their life better. This is also the opportunity also for the brand to mobilize employees around a motivating and unifying project.
