  4. 4. MINI COOPER/SPCA STRATEGY: Prove that dogs from shelters are not second-rate pets. IDEA: Teach shelter dogs a new trick and show it off to the world. EXECUTION: Specially-outfit Mini Cooper cars, teach dogs how to drive them and video the whole thing.Source @stoneward

  7. 7. CAMPBELL’S SOUP STRATEGY: Get the Millennial audience excited about soup and a new product called Campbell’s Go. IDEA: Go online and talk “Millennial speak.” EXECUTION: Ditch the cans, create new packaging with faces of people who represent stereotypical millennials (like a girl with thick glasses) and launch a site for the new line of soups that is powered by Tumblr and is full of attempts at Millennial humor that involve cheesy jokes about how to save money or get over an ex and phrases that young people use, like “What’s crackin’?” Campbell’s also pulled out the big guns to attract their target audience: cats. The Campbell’s Go site has a section for nutritional information that is presented by cat GIFs, because, of course, you cannot attract millennials to a website without using the Web’s favorite animal.Source @stoneward
  8. 8. CAMPBELL’S SOUP CHANNELS: • Tumblr: Campbell’s Go has its own Tumblr page, which features similar content to the Facebook page. • BuzzFeed: the soup brand has teamed up with social news site BuzzFeed, creating funny posts that are designed to promote sharing – examples include “17 Animals Who Were Totally Prepared for Halloween,” “10 Famous Landmarks and Their Greatest Facsimiles,” and “10 DIY Tips for Camping Without Leaving Home” Campbell’s Go is also sponsoring BuzzFeed’s Nom Nom Feed, so posts tagged with Nom Nom appear with a branded tab - ”Presented by Campbell’s Go Soups.” • Spotify: Campbell’s Go flavors are the inspiration behind a new set of playlists on digital music service Spotify, with one playlist for each of the six flavors.When a user listens to one of these songs on Spotify, he/she receives a coupon for Campbell’s Go and gains access to the full playlist. • Angry Birds: Campbell’s Go is also a launch sponsor for Angry Birds Star Wars (of Rovio Entertainment), and fans on the to-go soup’s Facebook page will have access to character reveals and game-playing tips.Source @stoneward

  15. 15. PINTEREST STRATEGY: Drive holiday traffic for some influential pinners. IDEA: For the 30 days leading up to Christmas, feature the holiday boards of a selected pinner each day. EXECUTION: From Katie Couric, to Anthropologie, to Southwest Air, Pinterest is further endearing itself to influential pinners and brands as a business tool and traffic-driver. While the effort is consumer- facing, its also a nod to the many retailers who are busily tending their Pinterest sites in the hopes of encouraging online sales this holiday.The holiday pinboards will also live on the sites of their creators once theyre unveiled on the calendar.Source, Source @stoneward

IDEA: Create your own Skittles Christmas commercial and share it online. EXECUTION: Developed a video-based website where users choose from a bunch of elements in a template to create their own Skittles Holiday ad.The characters, background setting, dialogue and, well, the "miracles" are all accounted for; their arrangement is up to you.The variety here offers more video possibilities than there are Skittles in a vending machine bag.Source @stoneward

  25. 25. LINCOLN STRATEGY: Engage a younger audience in the launch of the new Lincoln MKZ. IDEA: Hire Jimmy Fallon (and his 7 million Twitter followers) to “write the script” for the Super Bowl spot using tweet responses to Jimmy Fallon’s Twitter questions. EXECUTION: Launch a microsite hub for the Campaign called Steer the Script. Jimmy Fallon tweets questions about cars, road trips, etc. and asks for responses tagged #steerthescript.They have not revealed how the brand will take the tweets and turn them into a :60 commercial, but the time has closed for contribution and the script is currently being written. To kick of the #steerthescript campaign, Lincoln used a traditional TV spot, as well as Jimmy Fallon’s social media efforts.Source, Source @stoneward

Thirty finalists will also have their designs displayed at Milan Design Week next year.

Mark van Iterson, Heineken’s global head of design, said: “While we’re constantly looking ahead, we never forget our DNA – seeking inventive ways to draw on our evolution to create something new for the future. This ethos has helped to make Heineken so iconic over the course of its 140 years and we think REMIX is a great theme to involve designers all over the world, giving them the freedom to delve into our past and create their own take on our future.”Source @stoneward

  31. 31. NEW CASTLE STRATEGY: Demonstrate that New Castle is hip to the photography trend. IDEA: New Castle knows the truth behind your Instagram photos. The beer company launched a new Facebook app that uncovers EXECUTION: the real meaning behind that Instagram you posted of your brunch. (“I’m at brunch. I hope you wish you were here.”)  The app lets you select a clichéd category of Instagram photos, add a subtext caption and then re-share the image with your friends.   The quirky campaign paints the brand as humorous and no- nonsense.Source @stoneward

  34. 34. BEN & JERRY’S STRATEGY: Connect with fans in a local and personal way. Use the popularity of Instagram and leverage the B&J 123,000 IDEA: followers to push the brand’s “euphoric” message. “We chose the theme of ‘Capture Euphoria’ because we felt it gave our fans a way to express euphoria from their own particular point of view: from sunsets to smiles to ice cream sundaes,” says Jay Curley, Integrated Marketing Manager at Ben & Jerry’s. To enter, fans have to tag #captureeuphoria to their Instagram EXECUTION: photos.The subject of the photos has to somehow hew to the theme.

KEY TAKEAWAYS • Animals driving are really cute. • Using technology to customize the experience is still considered a novelty. • Be careful when it comes to your target audience: cliches will turn them off. • Involving consumers in content creation can work given the right context and elements. • Video, video, video. Use it. @stoneward
