DHL - 24 Hours Online Tracking - guerilla, China


This ‘mobile’ on-ground communication created by Ogilvy Beijing makes use of a large silhouette of a computer cursor installed on a fleet of DHL’s runner vans, which shuttles around the Beijing’s Central Business District to announce DHL’s ‘24-7’ online tracking attribute. This simple stunt/ live activity has effectively resulted in an apparent drop in parcel enquiry recorded by the DHL phone tracking system while online tracking click counters surged.

Bigger image inside, cheap but very effective look!

Update August 4 - see also the DHL-arrow man version

IKEA 'refresh range' - Small Change Big Difference - installation, Australia


Host, Sydney Australia says:

This campaign was created to promote IKEA’s refresh and redecorate range, which helps people achieve the look they want for their home with simple, quick, affordable changes. The objective for the campaign was to demonstrate that is it easy and affordable to make your home feel fresh and rejuvenated. We wanted to inspire them with what is possible. Putting this through the filter of demonstrating that IKEA understands real life at home the campaign proposition developed was – Change a lot for a little. The creative idea was Small Change, Big Difference. The idea that you don’t have to do or spend a lot to make a big difference to the way your home looks and feels.
This idea was manifested in an integrated campaign.
• EXPERIENCE THE DIFFERENCE: a live installation in Sydney, Perth and Brisbane that changed daily to show how new cushions, lighting, blankets and rugs can completely transform a room, even when the furniture remained the same. The change was shown each day at the campaign microsite.
• WIN THE DIFFERENCE: A competition which could be entered via SMS or at the campaign site enabling people to win the makeover each day, with the entire room contents available at the end of each week in each state.
• DO IT YOURSELF: daily press ads and radio spots with tips to inspire people about how easy and affordable it is to make changes themselves

Mail and Guardian - Roboku mailer - DM, South Africa


TBWA\Hunt\Lascaris, Johannesburg created this mailer for the Mail and Guardian. With it, they've invented what is likely the most mind-boggingly difficult game ever - Roboku. Aaargh!
They explain:

In order to seek out the future bright talent of the journalism industry, the Mail and Guardian sent out a direct mailer to the near graduates of various tertiary education facilities.
The direct mailer arrived in a with a line written on the lid "If this is for you". Inside the box was a piece of paper that read "Then you are for us". At the back of this paper was a request to send CV's to the Mail and Guardian's HR department. Resting underneath this paper was a Rubik's Cube, but not just any ordinary one. This Rubik's Cube contained six games of Sodoku that needed to be re-assembled in order to be complete, therefore challenging these future journalists and letting them know that only those who are willing to rise up to a difficult challenge need apply for a job at the Mail and Guardian.

The Monterey Bay Aquarium - Penguin cabs and print ads, USA

San Francisco-based advertising agency BuderEngel (BE) has created a new campaign to showcase the renovation of, Splash Zone: Ocean Homes at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, one of the nations top attractions, it's all based around the tagline "Some Experiences Follow You Home".

The campaign included stunts, like the one on July 10th when for six hours, ten cabs and police escorts of two bike cops made stops at tourist spots throughout San Francisco with a character in a penguin suit to give out tickets to kids and families. Also, there were penguin-clad cabs driving around San Fran. There's even a competition on: "CBS Sacramento will be hosting a contest where finalists are given a Flip Video Camera and tickets to the Monterey Bay Aquarium to tape their experiences at the Aquarium" - the grand prize? "one week for four to the Monterey Bay Aquarium including accommodation, $100 in gas, VIP tour of the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and dinner". I have no idea how to even begin to spend a week in a Aquarium - that place must be huge.
