Liquid game for Hotel Transylvania 3

With the release of the animated film Hotel Transylvania 3: Summer Vacation, Sony Pictures Animation needed an innovative way to reach and engage their audience to promote their summer blockbuster. Appetite Creative was tasked with designing from scratch, building, and testing a fully responsive unit that would reach at least one million users. We designed and created a candy crush style game in which users would match up characters from the film. We added the video trailer and ticket buying options and three levels of fast-paced, gorgeous gameplay. Each of the three levels would hold a new set of four characters for users to match horizontally or vertically. To increase excitement users were against the clock, each level had only 30 seconds to reach the minimum score or replay that level. We had no prize to offer, so instead users were motivated through the game experience by the design itself and motivated to proceed to the next level and collect the themed bats. We tripled the...

Vodafone Treasure Hunt

Vodafone X has teamed up with Appetite Creative and OMD to offer the chance to win a brand new iPhone. On Wednesday, 6 June, 2018, Vodafone X hid a brand new iPhone somewhere in Dundrum Town Centre as part of a public treasure hunt. There was no dog-eared map with an X marking the spot with this one though: the clever heads at Appetite Creative Solutions made it 100% digital and completely via smartphone

Here’s how it worked. You show up at the Vodafone Store at 1pm. Once there, whip out your phone and scan QR code and you have your first clue. You’re off and running from there. Each code you scan will lead you to the next spot. If you do it right, you should end up back in the store after visiting three locations. The fastest time on the day wins.

The campaign had 73 participants running around town and one lucky winner with a gleaming new iPhone. 411 Instagram likes, 61 Facebook likes along with a huge message thread as well as almost 300 article covering it means...

BI Reporting Integration, Automation and Dashboarding for Initiative (IPG MediaBrands Group)

The Company Initiative is a global communications network within  IPG Mediabrands, one of the world's preeminent media service entities and part of Interpublic Group. Initiative employs more than  3,200 of the most creative and dynamic people in 94 offices across 80 countries and manages approximately $16 billion in billings annually.

Dynamic Creative Optimization for Best Western Hotels & Resorts

Celebrating more than 70  years of hospitality, Best Western Hotels &  Resorts is an award-winning global family of hotels located in over 100 countries and territories that offer accommodations for all types of travellers.

Having so many hotels and resorts across so many countries is quite some feat, but success on this scale can also bring complications that other, less accomplished, companies might not foresee.

Best Western needed a way to focus their advertising. There would not be much point in offering somebody a hotel in Bali if they were waiting for a bus in the centre of London. So, they needed a way to tailor each experience to each user, and in doing so, offer the widest variety possible, to the largest demographic possible.

This is where Appetite Creative stepped in, we created an MPU and a leaderboard which dynamically updated to show the most relevant hotels for each user who viewed the ad. Two animated, interactive, and dynamic ads to suit...

Gaelic Athletic Association is the largest sporting organization in Ireland. Founded in 1884 by highly spirited Irishmen that realized the need to establish an organization to make athletics accessible as it was once played solely by aristocrats during that time.

GAA promotes hurling, handball and football. It also promotes Irish music, song and dance to enrich its cultural heritage. Today, GAA has over 2,200 clubs in all 32 counties of Ireland. GAA collaborated with Shazam, Electric Media and Appetite Creative to create an entertaining mobile experience. Users could Shazam the TV ad and enter the branded mobile experience. Mobile users can take then a selfie, choose their county and a flag with their chosen crest and phrase will appear. Users also had the option of a fan cap with which they can adjust to different sizes and move around. Users can share the selfie on Facebook or Twitter for a chance to win 2 tickets to the Irish Football Final. Impactful and intelligent...

Augmented reality app for Coca Cola’s Rani Juice

Rani is a famous brand of fruit-based beverages manufactured by Coca-Cola company. Since the main group of clients is young people, Coca-Cola was looking for an innovative solution to increase brand awareness and boost sales of "Rani float". Appetite Creative had a successful experience with customer engagement, so we were excited about the project of Coca-Cola. The main challenge was to attract and keep the attention of the people under 26. Therefore, Appetite Creative decided to plan mixed digital and offline promotion. It consisted of adding QR code to each can of "Rani", development of augmented reality app and spreading information around social media.

Advent Calendar

After partnering up with The Independent we wanted to create an advent calendar which would offer users the opportunity to win a different prize, offered by a different advertiser each and every day. The challenge was to be able to find enough advertisers to participate and to give an offer for each door and make it compelling enough so users would come back and enter the competitions every day! In addition, each advertiser only had 24 hours available to them before it became the next advertisers turn.

We were able to fully generate and automate a smart calendar system, capable of organising and identifying different dates and associated events across all devices and environments.

We built solid code that worked cross-platform. An ambitious campaign that stood up to everything that we could think to ask.  A triumph of ambition, development, creativity, and execution.

An outstanding 40.73% CTR on all screens...

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The involvement of Appetite Creative’s founder at every step of the collaborative process made it both successful and delightful. Jennifer is experienced at spearheading a high-quality product within given deadlines, and her communications and management skills are both effective and consistent.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the former managing director for AnyClip, an AI-driven video content data analysis solution.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Appetite Creative?

I engaged Jennifer Stanley [Founder and Managing Director, Appetite Creative] to help us rebuild our website, re-engage with our users and customers, and help us create clarity in our messaging.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

One of the key features and functionality that we wanted for the website was a data recording counter to tell us who was visiting our site. They also provided us with a newsletter recording environment, and we wanted to make sure that the website was as simple to integrate with third-party analysis tools as possible. Above all, we wanted to be consistent in our messaging across the board. Jennifer’s team at Appetite Creative also engaged with adjusting our brand and communication identity with consumers, whether that be on email or presentation templates, or other related products. Although I am no longer with AnyClip, I know that they are still working together.

What is the team composition?

My interactions were solely with Jennifer. Although she has a full team behind her, I do not care for liaising with many different people on a project. I prefer having one entity with whom I work, and Jennifer is more than capable of filling that role.

How did you come to work with Appetite Creative?

We went through a pitch mechanic with a number of other companies bidding for our contract. I had worked with Jennifer and her team on a previous work engagement at which they had excelled, so they made it onto our pitch list immediately. During the pitch process, they beat everybody else that we had lined up; Appetite Creative simply stole the show.

How much have you invested with them?

As of when I left, we had invested around $15,000 USD.

What is the status of this engagement?

We engaged their services around January 2017. Although I am no longer with AnyClip, they are continuing to work with Appetite Creative to this day.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Anecdotally, the perception change of our business was material. We managed to clear up a number of complicated offerings that we have in the market, and Appetite Creative helped us do that. With regard to concrete metrics, our inbound leads increased by 20 percent and the conversion rate of those leads increased exponentially.

How did Appetite Creative perform from a project management standpoint?

They performed very well from a project management standpoint. We did a lot of maintenance conversations via WhatsApp, our project management via email, and larger conversations via telephone, all of which was largely dictated by my own working style.

There was a fair amount of complexity involved in working with AnyClip, due in part to delays because of both time zones and religious holidays. It is an Israeli business, and Appetite Creative was adept at cutting through any social and cultural barriers that might have complicated work between a Western and an Israeli company.

Their management of all the moving parts was just brilliant; we have been delighted to work with them. They not only met all the deadlines that were given to them, but also occasionally improved upon them. If there were going to be any timing issues, they informed us far in advance of the deadline.

Finally, they took care to make sure that they absolutely understood what we wanted and were trying to achieve, and then went above and beyond to deliver exactly that.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Jennifer’s involvement in the project really differentiates Appetite Creative from the other similar companies on the market. She both owns and runs the business, and is materially involved in all the projects on which they work. That makes a big difference. They may have issues with scaling up further down the line, but for now, it’s her heart and soul, her brand, and her business. Because she is so heavily involved, it works. I would be happy to both recommend Appetite and engage their services again for both current and future ventures.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Have a very clear idea of what you want to achieve before engaging with them—but that is true of every element of a business. Just be straightforward about what you need and they will move heaven and earth to make sure they deliver.

Feedback summary: 

The end client was happy with the ad, which is attributed to Appetite’s creativity, expertise, and speed. They create mockups quickly and would work overnight to meet tight deadlines. While there were initial issues with emails, their communication style has improved since then.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the senior manager of integrated sales and marketing for a digital sales company. We work with various web publishers in the U.S. I report to our senior director, who oversees everything from presales to postsales. Aside from coming up with editorial ideas, we also work on things like high-impact units for game overlays, mock requests, etc.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Appetite Creative Solutions?

We were looking for new vendors we could use on different projects, allowing us to have a faster turnaround time and innovative solutions.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We have implemented various campaigns with them. Together, we’ve come up with ideas for games, high-impact ads, and design mockups, with the project managers handling execution. They’ve helped us create interscroller ads for kids’ sites, including one for an upcoming movie that has a sliding puzzle and 2 other challenges.

We either brainstorm with Jenny [Managing Director & Founder, Appetite Creative Solutions] or we simply relay what the client wants. If there’s time, they will come back to us with a mockup or a general description of what they can do, along with the costing. When we sell it to the client, we will take the scope and send it to the project manager on the production side. They will then start gathering assets from the client and building the material as per scope. Since we need to optimize projects on our own publishing sites, we make sure that they understand this direction.

What is the team dynamic?

We usually interact with their main manager, who has designers across different offices. We will work with whoever is available, usually 2–3 people at a time.

How did you come to work with Appetite Creative Solutions?

I’ve been with the company for less than a year, so I wasn’t here when our company first approached Appetite. I believe we had an existing connection with their company. They originally made a pitch to our U.K. office, and we decided to engage their firm for a bigger contract that includes Canada.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Appetite in October or November 2016. Recently, we renewed our agreement.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

The client was pleased with our work for the kids’ website.

How did Appetite Creative Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

They usually work quickly, building mockups within 2 days or less, depending on the complexity. It took them 2 ½ days to do a slot-machine project that was a bit more complicated.

We’re based in Canada, and they’re in Europe, so we have to be aware of the time difference. They’ve worked overnight at times in order to accommodate this.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I’ve appreciated their overall service. Jenny will Skype me if something new comes up. They’re hands-on, accommodating, and creative.

Are there any areas they could improve?

When we exchange multiple emails, 1 or 2 will get missed or someone will be left out. Our standard procedure is to have the whole team copied on emails so that someone else can pick up the project if someone’s away. Fortunately, Appetite is getting better at this. They’ve usually worked with individuals, but we’re a larger team.

Feedback summary: 

With a customized solution and competitive price, Appetite secured an ongoing partnership. A rapid workflow and technical expertise led to high-quality products. Although their management skills could improve, Appetite’s campaigns typically performed 20% better than those without them.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I was a co-partner for a full-service creative media agency.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Appetite Creative Solutions?

We needed an agency to help us facilitate rich media for my clients.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Appetite helped with creative development to build and produce online advertising. They supplied the creative to facilitate our media campaigns.

We worked with Appetite to create a brief that we would then send to our clients who would make any necessary changes to it. Once the client signed off on the brief, Appetite would create the first stage mockup of the campaign and get our feedback on it, making iterative changes in the process. When the final mockup was finished, they would go into production and create the assets. With Appetite’s help, we then uploaded the assets into our ad server and other platforms and made changes to the code or size before finally distributing it to consumers via our tech platforms.

What is the team dynamic?

Jenny [Founder] managed our team.

How did you come to work with Appetite Creative Solutions?

We considered about three or four agencies, but Appetite pitched a solution that met our needs and was within budget. We conducted a few trial campaigns, which went well, so we continued the relationship.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around $15,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in December of 2015, and the partnership is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

On average, Appetite’s campaigns performed roughly 20% better than those without their help. We and our clients are happy with the results they achieved.

How did Appetite Creative Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

They managed our projects well. We mainly communicated via telephone and email.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Appetite produced creative incredibly fast, even for the clients that waited until the last minute to get something done. That never stopped Appetite; they always managed to create something for them.

The whole team understands their industry; technology platforms; and what’s relevant, new, and possible. Some agencies sell you the impossible, but Appetite knows the limits and will produce the best material they can.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Their project and financial management improved a bit, but I think it’ll get better as they work with more clients.

Advice for potential customers?

Give them a good brief and a good financial budget. Be honest with what you want and how much you’re willing to spend, and the solution they provide will be much better
