  5. 5. 5 5 QUICK SERVICE Table of Contents
  6. 6. GOOGLE HOME HACK DESCRIPTION: As smart speakers have started invading homes and reacting to what is happening around them, Burger King decided to take advantage of that new presence in its customers’ homes. In a TV spot, they decided to talk directly to Google Home speakers, triggering an action with the “OK Google” formula, so you can learn more about their most iconic product, the Whooper. This hack had so much momentum Google decided to block that specific request, generating even more PR for BK. LINK BURGER KING
  7. 7. PAVING FOR PIZZA DESCRIPTION: Pizzas are mostly delivered at home. And they’re fragile. The more hectic the state of the roads in your neighborhood, the less intact your pizza will be on arrival. That’s why Domino’s Pizza decided to “pave for pizza.” Citing potholes as one of the biggest foes of pizza integrity, Domino’s decided to cover them up for the sake of customer satisfaction. The covered potholes were branded, and on a dedicated website one could nominate his/her city to improve the quality of its roads and get rid of these high pizza mortality figures. LINK DOMINO’S PIZZA
  8. 8. FCK DESCRIPTION: In shifting one letter, KFC became FCK, and immediately captured not only the mood of the whole of the KFC organisation, but also the mood of a nation that until then hadn’t realised how much it wanted KFC. It’s a deliberately provocative and human response to a crazy problem, backed up with an understated, but heartfelt body copy that explained a bit more about the situation. It also allowed KFC the opportunity to apologise to both the public, and their employees about the company running out of chicken. LINK KFC
  9. 9. FLIP DESCRIPTION: For one day, across the US, the world's most recognized brand was transformed into a symbol of gratitude for women - past and present - celebrating their contributions to creating what McDonalds what it is today. LINK MCDONALD’S
  10. 10. SCARY CLOWN NIGHT DESCRIPTION: Everybody is afraid of clowns. Except for Burger King. To prove it, the King decided to face its fear and invite our scariest enemy for a meal. The message was simple: "Come as a clown, eat like a king.” During the night of Halloween celebrations, Burger King will give away a Whopper to everyone that comes dressed as a clown. LINK BURGER KING
  11. 11. DESCRIPTION: To celebrate Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood, Dominos Australia has announced a new Mogul pizza, Chocobo Chow, and a gaming meal that includes a free download code for Final Fantasy XIV: Stormblood for PC and PlayStation 4. The new Chocobo Chow pizza is topped with chicken (the Chocobos of Earth), pineapple, capsicum, mushrooms, onion and spring onion. In addition to the all-new creation, Dominos have renamed some of their most popular pizzas in celebration: Moogle's Meatlovers (BBQ Meatlovers), Curious Cactuar (Vegorama), Stormblood Supreme (Supreme) and Hawaiian Heavensward (Hawaiian). LINK STORMBLOOD EDITION DOMINOS
  12. 12. INSTAGRAM MENU DESCRIPTION: Instagram Menu integrates social networks with point of sale. It also uploads photos of people eating McDonalds on Instagram to one of the company’s restaurant menu boards, breaking all McDonalds’ guidelines on how to show appetite appeal in the moment clients are actually deciding on what to buy. The brand relies hence on the lifestyle and good vibes of the subjects on Instagram instead of photoshopped appetite appeal photos. LINK MCDONALD'S
  13. 13. PIE TOPS II DESCRIPTION: Pizza Hut recently announced the release of its Pie Tops II sneakers, just in time for March Madness. The sneakers use Bluetooth technology that allows its wearer to pause their TV and order pizza. LINK PIZZA HUT
  14. 14. SIGNING STORE DESCRIPTION: Starbucks is opening its first U.S. cafe staffed by employees who are partially or fully deaf - and capable of communicating in American Sign Language - in early October. The company is converting an existing Starbucks location near Gallaudet University, in Washington, into what it calls a Signing Store. The chain will hire 20 to 25 people from across the country who know ASL. LINK STARBUCKS
  15. 15. DESCRIPTION: Disasters can strike anywhere - even with pizza: it could get cold, or the dog could eat it. It could fall into a puddle or get run over by a bus. Whatever happens, Dominos is now claiming that it will "insure" your pizza by replacing it with another one completely for free. LINK CARRYOUT INSURANCE DOMINOS
  16. 16. 16 16 ALCOHOL Table of Contents
  17. 17. DESCRIPTION: Veuve Clicquot is one of the most iconic champagne brands in the world. However, people know very little about the Veuve Clicquot historical figure herself (Veuve Clicquot = Widow Clicquot in French). Is she real? What was her role in building the brand? Her life may be richer than you’d expect it to be. Being one of the first French business women of modern times, the brand has the opportunity to connect today’s feminist values while emphasizing its historical legitimacy. This is why the brand launched a 15-episode podcast to narrate the amazing life of Madame Clicquot, with facts and events ranging from her personal life as a widow, her economic background, and how champagne was, and still is, made. LINK Veuve Clicquot TALES OF WOMEN’S ENTREPRENEURSHIP
  18. 18. DESCRIPTION: When Hurricane Harvey hit the US last year, Anheuser-Busch stopped production of beer to provide drinking water to residents in affected Southern states and Puerto Rico. The company assembled a team to tailor content and media requests around its efforts, maintaining a humble tone that emphasised employees' acts of kindness in a year defined by division. Anheuser-Busch has provided emergency drinking water to crisis-hit areas in the past, but this time the storytelling approach won positive profile for the firm and ensured social media pickup, as well as strengthening employee engagement. LINK ANHEUSER-BUSCH TURNING BEER INTO WATER
  19. 19. LE BECK’S DESCRIPTION: The inspiration behind this unique Beck’s packaging was to bring canned beer to venues and events where it is not traditionally consumed. As a result, the Le Beck’s cans have been trialled in art galleries, classical music concerts and other “exclusive” events in Germany. Due to the “overwhelmingly positive response” Beck’s is now considering launching the beer flutes globally. LINK THE LEGENDARY BEER-CAN FROM BECK’S
  20. 20. FIGHT FOR TERRITORY DESCRIPTION: The Lions Rugby Tour was going to New Zealand – a once-every-12-years event. To maximise the publicity, All Blacks sponsor Steinlager found where fans and teams spent the most time: the airport. It bought every sign, in every terminal, and made them interactive. Steinlager then told Guinness – the Lion's sponsor and its rival – that it could have the signs for free. It just had to fight for them. LINK GUINNESS AND STEINLAGER
  21. 21. DRUNKEN SPOTS DESCRIPTION: In 2017, drunk driving yielded more than 3,000 victims in Colombia and this number is continuing to increase despite national police strict controls. Drunken spots is a campaign that aims to combat this dangerous behavior, using radio - the most consumed media by drivers - and the voice of real drunk drivers caught in their client’s operatives. LINK COLOMBIAN POLICE
  22. 22. DESCRIPTION: Black Red Ale Beer launched an AR and NFC-enhanced bottle that can generate customized conversations tailored to drinkers' moods, and communicate with them based on their facial expressions, reinventing the enduring bottle as an interactive experience of its own. LINK BLACK RED ALE BEER AR/NFC BEER BOTTLES
  23. 23. DESCRIPTION: Three women are killed by their partners every day in South Africa. This Carling activation involved a female choir singing Asambe Nono, a well-known South African football song, at the Soweto derby in March, with lyrics revised to reflect the story of a woman being abused by her partner when he comes home under the influence, from a soccer match in which his team has lost. The chorus made it clear that there was #NoExcuse for abuse. The new words were transmitted live on the big screen at FNB Stadium for the crowd of 85,000, and the choir’s performance was televised on SABC and Supersport, with commentators primed to explain the meaning behind this unique intervention to their millions of viewers. LINK CARLING BLACK LABEL SOCCER SONG FOR CHANGE
  24. 24. JANE WALKER DESCRIPTION: The “striding man” now walks with a striding woman—and she plans to make her voice heard this year. Beverage giant Diageo’s Johnnie Walker brand has added a female counterpart to its iconic mascot after more than 100 years, in tribute to women around the world. LINK JOHNNIE WALKER / DIAGEO
  25. 25. BORDEAUX 2050 DESCRIPTION: Bordeaux 2050 was created to counter the lack of global action against global warming. Today, a large majority of governments do not take the necessary steps to act on it. Tangible proof was needed. By distilling abstract data of climate change into a brand of wine that people can hold and savor, Bordeaux 2050 literally put the responsibility of the future of our environment in their hands. Weather data projection on the next 30 years simulate the exact taste of a Bordeaux grown in 2050 if climate conditions don't improve. The result is a diminished, bitter, unpleasant taste that forces people to viscerally experience the future consequences of global warming. By appealing to reason through our most indulgent sense, the result is emotional and terrifying but ultimately inspiring. The vintage was presented during a seemingly ordinary wine-tasting event at the Paris Museum of Wine, gathering key decision makers who have a major influence on the course of climate change. LINK AJE ASSOCIATION
  26. 26. DESCRIPTION: This multi-channel campaign shares a culturally relevant, true story to resonate with Gen Y. The result was a campaign with breadth and depth, which made the Made of More series relevant and resonant with a younger audience. LINK GUINNESS / DIAGEO COWBOYS OF COMPTON
  27. 27. MAJOR DESCRIPTION: Even if you are a cyclist, you may not recognize the name Marshall ‘Major’ Taylor. Cognac brand Hennessy, however, is bringing back the memory of the man who was at one time the world’s best bicycle racer. Hennessy has launched ‘Major,’ the fifth installment of the brand’s ‘Wild Rabbit’ campaign. The creative, by Droga5, brings to life the spirit of Hennessy’s ‘Never stop. Never settle,’ mantra through the remarkable story of Taylor. LINK HENNESSY
  28. 28. DESCRIPTION: This is the story of how the brand got 780 million organic views using wit, stop motion and a lot of vodka. Giphy, the world’s largest GIF platform serves 2 billion gifs to users on a daily basis and Tinder reports that users who start conversations using GIFs have a 30% higher reply rate than those who don’t. The way these GIFs are used poses an exciting opportunity for brands, as they’re shared as a form of self-expression from one person to another. If a brand could create GIFs relevant enough for a certain audience, they could effectively inject the brand into their target audiences’ online conversations without having to rely on intrusive ads. LINK ABSOLUT VODKA NEVER GONNA GIF YOU UP
  29. 29. DESCRIPTION: Y&R and Mamma HELP have launched the first beer developed specifically for women with breast cancer who are enduring chemotherapy. It is an alcohol-free beer with a sweet flavor to appeal to patients whose tastes may have changed during treatments, and packed with nutrients, including vitamin B and potassium, to give them something nutritious to drink when eating and drinking are hard. LINK ZATEC BREWERY MAMMA BEER
  30. 30. 30 30 SOFT DRINKS Table of Contents
  31. 31. DIET COKE LOOKS FORWARD DESCRIPTION: The last time the Coca-Cola Company refreshed their core product, it didn’t go over so well. New Coke’s reformulated beverage was pulled from shelves almost as soon as it launched. The Diet Coke rebrand hasn’t fizzled out though, because the core formula is untouched. Featuring a slimmer can with a sleek new look, Diet Coke hopes to maintain its ravenous fan base, while appealing to younger millennials with a portfolio of on-trend fruity flavors. The refresh seems to be working - with positive sales to date. LINK Coca-Cola
  32. 32. PEPSI LOOKS BACK DESCRIPTION: In today’s always-on news cycle of political drama, scandal, and conflict, it’s easy to wistfully look to the music of decades past as an escape. Continuing on last year’s “Pepsi Generations” campaign, Pepsi released limited edition cans featuring music icons such as Ray Charles, Michael Jackson, and Britney Spears. The stars were previously Pepsi influencers from the 80s through the early 2000’s, coincidentally lining up with the “millennial age bracket.” Traditional soda sales have slumped for over a decade now, so Pepsi is betting this retro look will be the can of nostalgia that America craves right now. LINK Pepsi Co.
  33. 33. DOWN THE SOY ROAD DESCRIPTION: Traditionally the gruel of innovative Silicon Valley nerds, Soylent has partnered with an ad agency to increase awareness of its meal replacement soy beverage to other techies. The campaign centers on an AI bot named “Trish” who educates tech workers on the wonders of Soylent. Trish can be found on the Soy Road, a dark web peer-to-peer site only accessible by downloading a special browser. The Soy Road hosts coveted Soylent products and memorabilia that only their tech-obsessed superfans would buy (using Bitcoin only, of course), but has earned extended reach via forums like Reddit. LINK Soylent
  34. 34. SUJA DRINKERS REALLY LOVE PLANTS DESCRIPTION: A healthy obsession with another person can sprout into love. As it turns out, an unhealthy obsession with produce makes for a hilarious campaign. These digital shorts have cheeky references to health-crazed millennials, featuring tree-huggers, yogis meditating over grapefruits, and carrot munching foragers. The content is designed to position Suja as a juice with energy enhancing benefits, as evidenced by the tagline “Drink plants, take their power.” LINK Suja
  35. 35. DESCRIPTION: We all know what happens when you shake a soda, but that’s exactly what Orangina wants us to do with their “Wiiish Box” cans. The brand wants consumers to shake up the fruit pulp in the can, and is offering to make your wishes come true in return. A genie inside a few of the cans will talk when you flip it, which is your signal to make a wish on their website. Orangina partnered with Paris-based Buzzman to launch the promotion in France. LINK TURN THE CAN, MAKE A WISH Orangina
  36. 36. UNCLE DREW COMES TO THEATERS DESCRIPTION: Pepsi has achieved the gold standard of viral video marketing and branded content by creating a feature film based on its “Uncle Drew” character, to be released this year. Originally a digital short meant to fool unsuspecting ballers at a pickup game into thinking that a NBA star Kyrie Irving was a random old man, the video went viral in 2012 and has culminated with Pepsi now promoting ads that promote the movie. Other celebrity cast members of the movie include former NBA stars and comedians like Chris Webber, Reggie Miller, Lisa Leslie, Milton "Lil Rel" Howery and Tiffany Haddish. LINK Pepsi Co.
  37. 37. A MYTH BROUGHT TO LIFE DESCRIPTION: Not many brands produce ads that can resonate decades later, let alone be considered classics. Perrier partnered with Ogilvy Paris to retell the mythical story of “Lion,” where a woman challenges a lion over a bottle of sparkling water. The previous Cannes Grand Prix ad was dusted off to promote Perrier’s new line of sparkling water with smaller bubbles. It featured smaller characters but followed the same storyline. The choice to launch this ad in 2018 is clear when you consider the context; the original film teems with political undertones and positive subtext that is arguably even more relevant today. LINK Perrier
  38. 38. DESCRIPTION: This is the most hazy sounding innovation in the beverage industry). Heineken developed a canned sparkling water infused with cannabinoids derived from marijuana, under its’ storied California craft beer acquisition, Lagunitas. But it works. In a clear response to sluggish alcoholic beverage sales and local support for cannabis products, Heineken’s beer-alternative is making a foray into the growing cannabis market by using sparkling water as a delivery vehicle. The brand is offering a THC version, and a less psychoactive CBD infusion. The only matter up for debate is how to categorize this franken-drink. LINK Heineken Co. HOPPY SPARKLING WATER
  39. 39. DESCRIPTION: Think of all the things you can do at a music festival. Now strip away all of the stuff that is bad for your body, add yoga, and you have Propel’s Fitness Festival. The brand’s activation lines up with the health conscious trend by flipping the idea of a festival on its head. The multi-city interactive US tour included live concerts from top tier musicians like Ludacris or Wyclef Jean, with workouts led by fitness influencers and upstart studios. LINK Gatorade FITNESS FESTIVAL
  40. 40. BIG ADVENTURES DESCRIPTION: Brands that recognize their lead and continue to innovate tend to be rewarded. Chobani is transforming itself from a yogurt company to a wellness brand, recently rebranding its identity and packaging, and continuing to expand into new product categories. The market leader has entered the beverage market with a drinkable yogurt, and is using ATL content to both sharpen the new positioning and incentivize viewers to try the drink with a coupon code. The whimsical and aspirational videos feature young adults drinking Chobani while on their way to different adventures. The films engross you in close up scenes and longing stares and cuts almost too soon, leaving you to imagine the rest. LINK Chobani
  41. 41. 41 41 PACKAGED FOODS Table of Contents
  42. 42. 1-833-MOM-TIPS YOPLAIT DESCRIPTION: Yoplait created a hotline for all your unwanted mom advice. Call the number and you get a voice recording that gives you a list of options depending on the category your bad advice falls under. If you see a mother in the grocery store with what you deem to be a questionable parenting style, press 1. See a mom nursing in public? Press 2. Or maybe a mom has a problematic social media presence. Press 4. There’s even the option to talk to a “real-life mom.” LINK
  43. 43. VH1 MARTHA & SNOOP’S POTLUCK DINNER PARTY + SNICKERS DESCRIPTION: Martha & Snoop teamed up with Snickers for a Halloween themed Potluck Dinner Party. Snickers know how to satisfy hunger, and rather than showing us another ad, created an in-show integration. VH1 pushed the story further by creating artistic social posts featuring Snickers. LINK SNICKERS
  44. 44. Bring Out The Bold DESCRIPTION: Listerine held an event, ‘The Study of Bold’, featuring 5 engaging stages with experiential activities ranging from beatboxing to basketball to karaoke. A ‘The Study of Bold’ Listerine-branded mouth rinse product sampling station was placed onsite to activate the value of the brand to consumers. 7,500+ people engaged with the brand performances, sampling station and street team marketing activities. The ‘Bring Out the Bold’ stages acted as brand advertising billboards in Union Square for the entire day achieving 50,000+ consumer impressions. LINK LISTERINE
  45. 45. SWEDISH FISH SPONSORSHIP DESCRIPTION: Swedish Fish had awareness, but not many people engaged with the brand. They created a series of partnerships across multiple on-site touchpoints, many of which were designed to drive social engagement. That included selfie stations (the cornerstone of the program), branded Snapchat filters and branded content. They partnered with seven aquariums across the US, but each activated in their own unique ways, and the brand teamed up with a mobile game too. LINK SWEDISH FISH
  46. 46. PEEL LICK PLAY DESCRIPTION: Petits Filous partnered with Amazon's grocery service Pantry to facilitate imaginative children's play. 200,000 Amazon Pantry boxes came with play-inspiring instructions for how the boxes can be used to create a space helmet, pirate ship or enchanted castle. Alexa, meanwhile, got four new skills, accessed by saying "Alexa, open Petits Filous", which will provide kids with mini-challenges to stimulate play. The brand also included play ideas on the inside of the lid of 28 million fromage frais pots. LINK Petits Filous
  47. 47. GO MADBURY DESCRIPTION: Cadbury let fans can create their chocolate bars by choosing up to three of the flavors listed on Cadbury’s inventor site, naming their bar and submitting it. More than 90,000 combinations were possible, and the public was asked vote on the top three bars, with finalists being invited to the Cadbury headquarters in Birmingham, England. The campaign is Willy-Wonka esque and taps into the fact that people in Britain eat more chocolate than anyone else, averaging 8.4kg per person. LINK CADBURY DAIRY MILK
  48. 48. MOSQUITONIC THOMAS HENRY DESCRIPTION: Enjoying a summer cocktail outdoors means being bitten by mosquitos. Tonic water brand Thomas Henry created 'Mosquitonic', a spray cap that fits perfectly on Thomas Henry bottles and transforms them into powerful anti-mosquito sprays. The insight came from the fact that when you order a drink with tonic water, you always leave some in the bottle. And that’s what gave the agency the idea - because tonic water contains quinine, a natural mosquito repellent. LINK
  49. 49. EXTRA SUPPORT ACTS DESCRIPTION: This campaign turns YouTube pre-roll ads into a platform that gives 16 emerging Australian music acts a significant audience boost and a chance to perform live on a major stage. The longer you watch the artist’s pre-roll, the more you vote for the act. LINK EXTRA GUM
  50. 50. BRAILLE ‘LOVE NOTES’ DESCRIPTION: Kellogg is making a special feature on its Rice Krispies Treats more accessible for people who are vision-impaired. Rice Krispies Treats launched writable wrappers in the summer of 2017, allowing families to send an encouraging message to their children at lunch. In partnership with the National Federation of the Blind, Kellogg announced today that it is launching "Love Note" Braille stickers and recordable audio boxes for its Rice Krispies, so children who are blind or have low vision can also get messages from their families. LINK RICE KRISPIES TREATS
  51. 51. AI VENDING MACHINE DESCRIPTION: Yakult, the Japanese dairy brand, has created an AI vending machine which rewards visitors with a drink if they are able to learn words in the Nippon language. The activation will feature at science festivals around the UK and Ireland and it’s part of the brand’s objective to include Japanese heritage in its marketing. LINK YAKULT
  52. 52. CHILL ME DESCRIPTION: Biscuit brand Arnott’s launched the Tim Tam Gelato Messina range by giving away 13,500 chilled packets through a temperature-activated out-of-home campaign over the Australia Day long weekend. Using live data from the Bureau of Meteorology, the refrigerated units were programmed to open at a set temperature on the day to give away packets to passers by. LINK ARNOTT’S TIM TAM
  53. 53. SO JUICY, JA DESCRIPTION: Black Forest plants itself in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood with an outdoor activation that brings the Ferrara candy brand’s self-consciously surreal commercials to life. (“So juicy, Ja!”) The event features a fantastical 20-foot-high tree with silk leaves, actor Brooklyn Decker, 10,000 free samples of gummies and fruit snacks for the public, and actors dressed as the campaign’s mythical woodland dwellers. Black Forest says the troupe will perform the risqué “harvest ritual,” immortalized in ads that dropped a few months back. Starting around the 18-second mark, it’s pretty darn silly and kind of NSFW. LINK BLACK FOREST
  54. 54. The 25% Less Cookbook DESCRIPTION: 25% of food cooked during Ramadan goes to waste. Sadia, the Middle East’s largest food brand, was determined to change that. Sadia release a Ramadan Cookbook every year. But this year they recycled the 2017 with recipes containing 25% less ingredients. It’s the first cookbook designed to reduce food wastage LINK SADIA
  55. 55. 55 55 PETCARE Table of Contents
  56. 56. DOG DATES DESCRIPTION: 1.2 million older people in the UK are chronically lonely. Pedigree, following the direction of their Feed the Good campaign, decided they could make a difference by pairing seniors with local dogs and sending them out on a date. Armed with the belief that ”a dog is a conversation waiting to happen,” program participants took their dog date for a walk and met new people through the instant ice-breaker of their canine companion. The program got elderly people out of their homes and into social settings, without the responsibility of owning a pet themselves. LINK PEDIGREE
  57. 57. CATS ON GLASS DESCRIPTION: As any cat owner knows, tiny grains of clay litter are constantly underfoot, no matter how steadfast you are with a broom. To remedy this, Fresh Step introduced a low-tracking litter that uses larger litter particles that are less likely to cling to your cat. In order to visually demonstrate the product’s effectiveness, Fresh Step opened a pop-up gallery in New York City, called Cats on Glass. The exhibit put cats on a raised glass platform, over the heads of spectators. The cute kitties played and interacted with guests below, who had a clear view of the cats’ clean paws. Produced in partnership with the Humane Society of New York, all of the cats on display were eligible for adoption. LINK CLOROX FRESH STEP
  58. 58. TITCH, THE GIANT DOG DESCRIPTION: Flea eggs are difficult to detect, so Frontline found a way to increase their visibility and raise awareness for their potential to infest your home. Enter Titch, a 5-1/2 foot tall, animatronic Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, built by special effects company Artem and operated by the same master puppeteers who brought War Horse to life on the West End. Titch debuted at Crufts, the world’s largest dog show. Attendees were invited to play with the giant pup, and probe his fur for potential invaders. LINK FRONTLINE PLUS
  59. 59. SELFIE STIX DESCRIPTION: For better or worse, man’s best friend has yet to understand the importance of a well-composed selfie. They just won’t look at the camera – squirrel! – so Pedigree designed a clip that attaches to your smartphone to hold one of their DentaStix dog treats. Called SelfieStix, the clips were included with packages of DentaStix. If this wasn’t enough technical innovation, Pedigree worked with Stanford University and Google to create the first dog facial recognition technology. Accounting for the wide variety of ears, eyes, and noses across countless breeds, the code was put to use in the Pedigree SelfieStix app, which allowed dog owners to map funny facial filters to their now-cooperative pooch. LINK PEDIGREE
  60. 60. LOYALTY COLLARS DESCRIPTION: Musti Group is the leading chain of pet supply stores in Finland, Norway, and Sweden. Like many retailers, Musti utilizes a loyalty program, but it’s not for owners. Now dogs can demonstrate their loyalty in a new way with Biscuit, an RFID enabled tag that attaches to your dog’s collar. As soon as you and your canine walk through the door, store staff are alerted with your dog’s name, birthday, and favorite treat. Of course, staff can also see your shopping history, making it easier for them to personalize your experience. LINK MUSTI GROUP
  61. 61. DOGS FOR DOGS DESCRIPTION: Humans aren’t the only species of influencer on Instagram. There are dogs whose accounts have amassed thousands of followers. In France, Pedigree asked some of these furry influencers to forego their usual selfies and instead take a day to post the pictures of other, similar-looking dogs of the same breed. These guest posts were of dogs in shelters, waiting to be adopted. Instagram followers liked the posts per usual, but this time they were served a subsequent image explaining the switch, and offering a link to a website where viewers could consider taking home a dog that really needed their Likes. LINK PEDIGREE
  62. 62. PETCOACH DESCRIPTION: In an effort to combat the ever-encroaching Amazon, Petco opened PetCoach, a reinvented pet store experience. It is the physical extension of their PetCoach app and online experience, designed to make you the ultimate pet parent by providing you with trusted advice and carefully curated products. The PetCoach store provides 360-degrees of service through a $9-monthly fee. Members enjoy access to free onsite veterinary care, discounted grooming services, and behavioral training support. There are no cashiers. Instead, personal service is provided by roaming Pet Coaches who can schedule appointments or conduct transactions with an iPad in-hand. LINK PETCO
  63. 63. DESCRIPTION: Mars Petcare partnered with Michelson Found Animals Foundation to form Leap Venture Studios, an incubator for new pet care technology and services. “We also want to be the partner of choice for every person with a big idea, every industry disruptor, every startup founder that wants to turn their vision for pet care into a reality. But we know we can’t do it alone,” said Leonid Sudakov, president of connected solutions at Mars Petcare. Leap Venture Studios combines, the industry knowledge of Mars with the philanthropic vision of the Michelson Foundation, which developed the first free national microchip registry for animals. LINK MARS PETCARE LEAP
  64. 64. WALK IN THEIR PAWS DESCRIPTION: Passionate pet parents can be skeptical of what goes into their kibble. And they’re not just concerned for their own animals – they want to buy from a brand they trust is ethical and caring in its research and manufacturing. In this age of reality TV and Nanny Cams, we trust what we can see with our own eyes. Hill’s recognized this and opened up their Global Pet Nutrition Center through a virtual reality tour, accessed via YouTube, Google Cardboard or your headset of choice. Two videos – one filmed from a dog’s perspective, the other from a cat’s – offered a 360-degree look at the center’s feeding, housing, and play areas, with plenty of happy animals in view to reassure you of Hill’s commitment to compassion. LINK HILL’S
  65. 65. CURIOUS CAT BOOK DESCRIPTION: The cat food brand played on its “Feed Their Curiosity” creative platform by commissioning an interactive book, meant to be read along with your cat. Not sure how to keep kitty interested? Each of the pages contain built-in toys to capture your furball’s attention, while also telling the real-life story of a cat that escaped from its carrier on a flight to London. LINK WHISKAS

  67. 67. TOUCHING MASTERPIECES DESCRIPTION: Touching Masterpieces has created a new age of digital accessibility for the blind and visually impaired. Thanks to specially designed haptic gloves, this unique Virtual Reality experience has allowed the blind to ‘see’ some of the world’s iconic sculptural masterpieces for the first time in history. LINK NEURODIGITAL
  68. 68. PROJECT REVOICE DESCRIPTION: With a custom machine learning algorithm that analyses and completely recreates a person's voice, Project Revoice gives ALS patients the full use of their own authentic voices, allowing them to speak freely and naturally even after they physically can't. To launch the program, advertisers recreated the voice of Pat Quinn, who co-founded the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge while fighting the disease himself. LINK THE ALS ASSOCIATION
  69. 69. SIP SAFE DESCRIPTION: With the staggering amount of sexual assaults related to drink spiking, the Sip Safe wristband is a functional spearhead in the fight against predatory behaviour. Both as a utility and education tool, this simple wristband has the ability to protect the wellbeing of everyday people and stop the culture of drink spiking. LINK MONASH UNIVERSITY
  70. 70. CORAZÓN - GIVE YOUR HEART DESCRIPTION: Corazón is based on a true patient story from Montefiore Hospital. Directed by John Hillcoat and featuring Academy Award nominee Demian Bichir and Blade Runner 2049 star Ana de Armas, Corazón tells the story of Elena Ramirez, a sex worker from Santo Domingo whose heart is dying, and Montefiore’s Dr. Garcia, the only person who offers her hope. Launched in partnership with the Tribeca Film Festival, the 48-minute film premiered in New York, and all screenings sold out within hours. Critics praised Corazón for its ability to awaken audiences to the importance of organ donation through the power of cinema. LINK MONTEFIORE
  71. 71.

  72. 72. 5G INCUBATOR DESCRIPTION: Accessing healthcare is a very personal thing, typically involving you and your healthcare provider meeting face-to-face and in private. However, that’s not always possible, based on the provider’s or patient’s location or ability to travel. That’s why “virtual” healthcare – the use of mobile technology, virtual reality, video, and other platforms to facilitate patient/caregiver interaction – is gaining traction in the healthcare industry. Professor Steven Feiner, and his staff and students at Columbia University’s Computer Graphics and User Interfaces Laboratory are experimenting with virtual reality (VR) over Verizon’s pre-commercial 5G technology. Their aim is to create a digital alternative to in-person motor rehabilitation therapy sessions using VR. LINK VERIZON
  73. 73. THE EDIBLE EXHIBITION DESCRIPTION: Currently in the UK, a staggering 92% of children don’t eat their recommended 5 fruit and vegetables a day. An unbalanced diet can lead to poor academic results, behavioural issues and long-term health benefits in later life. But through play and imagination, children can be encouraged to try something new and are more likely to adopt it. The Edible Exhibition tapped into this insight to create a fully interactive, playful culinary experience made entirely from fruit and veg. The V&A Museum of childhood in London has a history of educating children about the importance of play. Through their connections with local schools, they were able to invite hundreds of school children to participate in a one-off exhibition that they helped design. Food technologists and illustrator Rob Flowers helped to bring the best ideas to life, creating a series of fully edible installations, posters and invites. LINK V&A MUSEUM
