The client was surprised by the results of the campaign. UTEC applications in 2013 increased considerably; they were up by 38% from the previous year. That means that students got the message.In addition, the billboard is helping hundreds of families that didn’t have access to pure drinking water.
Campaign Description
To attract students attention regarding the opening of the application period at the University of Engineering and Technology of Peru, we conducted an innovative campaign, building the first billboard that produces drinking water out of air, since Peru has a problem with lack of potable water. Then we went to different media, so that a large number of students could see that engineering can change the world, and then apply to study engineering themselves.
We had an integrated campaign centered on the billboard, with online videos, television and printed ads…everything needed to reach students.But the best part is that the idea spread, with lots of spontaneous publicity in every media, so we were able to get young people to notice the billboard.
