Guinness and BBDO New York: The QR Cup - Perfect Timing
In the endless work to create talk and attention to the Guinness brand, BBDO New York created a very clever point-of-sale campaign with this QR code cup.
As illustrated, the QR code was designed to only work if the cup was full of Guinness, a lager or pilsner just wouldn’t do and show the QR. However, with Guinness you were able to scan the code and create activation. Drinkers could use the QR code to download exclusive content or broadcast social media messages via their cup.
Thanks to the utilization of the distinctive color of the beer, the campaign literally tied with the product and even consumption situation because you had to order the dark beer in order to participate. Order, engage, enjoy and share - now that’s great thinking..
My name is Christine Dissing, I have a master in Marketing Communications Management from CBS in Copenhagen and 4-5 years of work experience from the advertising/media industry. I live in London and among a lots of things I like to run, watch NFL and to read all kinds of books.
I have a strong interest in branding and marketing communications in general and have a passion for great advertisements and concepts.
I love when somebody have found a way to deliver their message and achieve their communication objectives in a new, twisted and intelligent manner that utilize a media to its full potential - both new and traditional.
I gather inspiration from ads that have a touch of excellent thinking within consumer insights, context and content.
On this blog I will therefore write about the advertisements that somehow got my attention in regard to these elements.
