  • Working together as a creative team,
    updated team structures
    & an approach that considers at least a 3rd part to what you might consider “traditional”.
  • How many of you call yourselves a Writer?
  • How many of you call yourselves an Art Director or a Designer?
  • How many of you call yourselves “Technical” or “interactive”

    How many of you guys have worked on a digital “AD”?
    How many in a digital Campaign?
  • cutlure, history, growth, etc & fun.
  • Started working together in 2003. 3 years at poke.

    Grew from 12 to 50 (knotty?)

    UK digital maturation - digital agencies (Poke, Glue, AKQA, Republic, Dare)
  • he’s a dickhead but it worked.
  • Reported weekly Media Consumption - Nielson 2007-2008

  • You need people who are able to understand the ideation process with these consumption trends in mind.

    Much the same as a writer understands language, Or an art director the image or the moving image.

  • It’s not made up.

    Questions:
    People in the agency?
    Partners?

    At what stage do you engage them?
  • It’s not made up.

    Questions:
    People in the agency?
    Partners?

    At what stage do you engage them?

  • These are roles, not people.
    Represents single agency and partnerships too
  • These are roles, not people... The CT could be the same person as the CD etc. Like Ashley. Or Iain perhaps?
  • early days? - excuse, the internet is global. Cop out.
    market size? - sweden example
    risk adversity? - Mostly on the client side we’ve found. Perception that produce an ad and you get something more ‘tangible’.
    skills drought? A lot of good people go OS and come back, but a lot of good people stay. Cop out.
    Tyranny of distance? Cop out. It’s the damn internet! Oz / Nz have a rep for punching above our weight, we should be able to do this too... (maybe the NBN will make it better)


    Discussion:
    Point to article: Randall Rothernberg - \"A Bigger Idea\"
    An unwillingness by mainstream agencies to integrate technologists as full partners in the advertising creative team

    Misunderstanding - Probably Fear - likely Protectionism - Maybe
    Telstra Politics
  • Innovation increases talkability.

    Innovation opens up opportunities with niches, targeting -

    It’s been happening in traditional media already, by both digital and non digital. Yellow’s billboards for example, it’s nothing new, fosters green etc

    Schweppes burst (high speed), Auckland Zoo Augmented,To stand out it really helps to innovate in the space. (and gives clients the opportunity to celebrate something other than metrics and sales.)

    Michael Lebowitz - Big Spaceship (HBO vouyer, Nike Air work) - states that Digital innovation may slow allowing for more “idea” led work.
    Plenty of room for “ideas” still.

    Foster a spirit of innovation within agency, the best ideas are often collabrative.




  • Global Rich List

    SHOW WORKING

    Talk about secretweet.
  • VIDEO
  • Uniqlock - Combining film, fashion and function.
    Utloop - Combining photography, fashion, fun.

    A big step beyond the bonds catalogue - talk cost benefits OR benefit of targeted digital etc.

    - bonds TVC’s? Kaliedescope & Paddycake - great, but think if the potential...


  • link to film
    “a groundbreaking way of enabling customers to tap into their creativity and the NIKEiD service through their mobile.”
  • links : web iTV tvc


  • If you understand motivation, you can design to engage.

    Demographics aren’t enough. A deeper understanding of audience is needed in briefs.








  • So consider saying More “maybe’s” instead of “too difficult”. With the right mix of skills/people and an agile approach - somebody will possibly have a solution

    For the most part, that requires the whole agency. Planners, Account man everyone otherwise it’s difficult to be agile and take advantage of first to market opportunities.

    Digital pure-plays have achieved it in other markets

    Collaboration and changing roles >>> rolls into skills shortages in the “new” market

    If you write for the screen, or Art Direct a scene (or whatever) the skills transfer “through” the conceptual process to the execution of that idea.

    The complexities with engagement and interaction within digital demand alternative paths to access the film, photographed, written or X (whatever) communication - but when engaged the audience still needs all or some of these parts.

    Less about redundancy and more about shifting the application of skills.

    Some examples: Vouyer, Cornetto, Uniqlo,

    37. 37. Incentives, Engagement, Advocacy One of the things a good creative technical team can bring is an understanding of the use of incentives. eg. Encouraging behaviour in games and social media requires designing the right mix of incentives. It’s a always more complex than just spraying a message out and counting ‘impressions’. Example: Orange Balloonacy Audience Incentive Balloonists A substantial prize for players and friends Sites A large, free increase in traffic and engaged audiences
    38. 38. Incentives, Engagement, Advocacy Young or old... It doesn’t matter if you understand what motivates your audience. If you understand motivation, you can design to engage. True ongoing engagement requires a better understanding of your audience. If you get it right, you create an opportunity to communicate a deeper understanding of your message. You create brand advocates.
    39. 39. Incentives, Engagement, Advocacy Advocacy only comes from long term engagement. A Creative Technologist can help design interactive communication modeled on the right incentives, encourage engagement and eventually create advocates.
    40. 40. Creating within an environment of rapid technological and social change requires agility
    41. 41. Skills collaboration It means that all of you don’t need to be born again into gen Z, in order to consider the the alternatives of all that digital can offer. In place of ALWAYS thinking of viral films & banners as the skills transfer to online/digital. Production skills are rapidly becoming more relevant. http://www.nokia.co.uk/maps/about-maps http://www.therumpusroom.tv/pet_rgb.html
