Outcome
The main goal of the project was to reposition the company as a creative business, remarking its ability to innovate in every aspect - including simple things. The whole creative approach, the execution - kept as simple as possible - and also the universal and easy access as an important asset of the action were successful at bringing the public closer to the company and familiar with its values. The action also got consistent spontaneous dissemination on the social networks, and awards like the gold medal at the Prêmio Minas de Comunicação 2013.
Relevancy
Many technical and creative solutions were necessary to make the project happen. To create the flashing lights at the windows, LED strips in different colours were used. Arduino cards controlled the hardware, and the game itself was controlled by the connection between mobile devices through a dedicated WiFi network, with a responsive design interface that allowed universal usage. The integration with Facebook allowed players to connect to the game itself and also share scores in real time.
Implementation
Inspired by both the Christmas lights all over the city and the eighties toy success Simon, the concept of the game was transported to the company office’s windows, located at the 15th and 16th floors. The creative concept then brought together technology, fun and the classic Christmas flavour of flashing lights, and also brought together people to have fun at the square - positioning the company as a creative business with positive values, who develops projects that go way beyond Internet tools.
Client Brief Or Objective
To promote an action to remark the Christmas festivities in an different, unusual way - inspired by the whole spirit of optimism of the end of the year, and also related to the client’s way of working - bringing people and businesses together by creating interactions.
