W+K London Easter 2009

  1. 1. ThE W&K VIRTUAL EASTER EGG HUNT
  2. 2. proposal idea proposal - doing digital - photosynth - RS background photosynth is powerful imaging application developed by microsoft. by aggregating a pool of hundreds of di erent pictures - from multiple users (e.g. flickr) or an individual user - it is able to stitch those images together creating a 3-dimensional, navigable model of the object or place those images represent. it’s a phenomenally impressive, immersive and revealing way in which to interact with images. more info: http://livelabs.com/photosynth/ http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=p16frKJLVi0 the idea to enable people to visit W+K London in a completely new way. by taking thousands of images inside as well as outside the o ce, we could create our own synth using the microsoft freeware. on stitching these together, visitors would be able to navigate freely about the building. it would be a completely unparalleled view of the inside of an ad agency. a demonstration of our grasp of innovative technology to potential clients; a sneak peak to prospective employees; and a bit of fun for the rest of us in the pictures one potentially interesting time to do this would be for Easter. rather than simply creating a straightforward synth, we could “embed’ clues - visual puns, puzzles, or cyptic clues, or actual Easter Eggs - within the images for visitors to find. there would be a prize for those who find them all. a second potential application could be for the new building across the road. with a su cient pool of images, a synth can be easily produced for people to explore. this could include information about when the school is opening (say on a whiteboard on the wall), people/tutors who will be working there (them dotted around the building), and other little touches to get our tone of voice across (scraps of paper, jottings on a notebook, a text message on a phone). finally, any W+K social event would make good synths. W+K soirées, agency meetings, summer parties could be recorded in this way. the natural flow of people makes for interesting synths. how to make it happen needs next to no investment from a financial point of view; and a little in terms of time.

  6. 6. press release Virtual Easter Egg Hunt @ W+K London - April 9th 2009 Wieden + Kennedy London have produced a synth of their o ce using Microsoft’s Photosynth technology - but with a seasonal twist. About Photosynth Photosynth is a powerful imaging application developed by Microsoft. By aggregating a pool of hundreds of di erent pictures - from multiple users (e.g. flickr) or an individual user - it is able to stitch those images together creating a 3-dimensional, navigable model of the object or place those images represent. It’s a phenomenally impressive, immersive and revealing way in which to interact with images. About W+K’s Seasonal Synth The W+K synth has been composed over a number of days and contains over 900 images. Hidden among these pictures are a number of numbered Easter Eggs (as well as decoys), which when combined in the correct sequence - with the help of additional Golden Egg clues - reveal a unique telephone number. The first to call and follow the instructions, wins. Grand Prize - Customized Nike Dunks ID Second Prize - Giant Easter Egg Third Prize - Pack of Mini-eggs Happy Easter and Happy Hunting!
