Describe the objective of the promotion.
Once people played Pictionary they loved the game, but there was a fear to play it for the first time, they thought they had to be "Rembrandt" to do it.

To get this we needed to develop an activation to demonstrate in a very personalized and fresh way, how easy and fast an image can be drawn, besides, having lots of fun. Our objective was to target new customers attracting them with a prize discount.

Describe how the promotion developed from concept to implementation.
Our solution was to take Pictionary out of the board of the game and installed a Photo booth in one of Bogotá’s most known mall and when people got in expecting to get a photograph, a hidden cartoonist inside would make a cartoon of them in 10 seconds or less.

People would receive their cartoon as a proof of how easy, fast and fun, playing Pictionary can be, and besides, they got a prize discount to buy the board game presenting their cartoons in toy stores.

Explain why the method of promotion was most relevant to the product or service.
For the client a very low cost activation (under USD$ 10.000), people not only got our message and a prize discount in the most personalized possible way, but even the people that were not in the mall knew about our activation, because people started uploading cartoons as their profile picture in social media applications.

Describe the success of the promotion with both client and consumer including some quantifiable results.
People loved becoming a cartoon and felt connected with the brand.

With a budget of under USD$ 10.000:
-The 15.000 people per day that visit the mall saw our activation.
- As many as 800 people per day entered Pictionary Photo booth.
- An immediate social network reaction: Hundreds of people used their cartoons as profile picture in Facebook and Twitter and they shared them and commented them with friends.
- And best of all, a change of attitude towards the brand: fear of drawing fast: lost.
