Tic Tac Dance AR App

We have created an AR app for the Tic Tac brand to start a dance flashmob in AR!

By scanning a barcode on a Tic Tac box through this fun app, a user unlocks one of the two dance-monster, could place them on any surface using the latest AR Kit or AR Core features, and hit the Play button to start the party. You can make selfies and videos with dancing monsters and invite friends to take part in the

flashmob. Watch the video to see how it works.

The app became an instant success and a part of a marketing campaign for Tic Tac. It helped to launch a flashmob in the social media, where users shared photos and videos made in the app for a reward.

The app also stimulated purchases of Tic Tac because of its dance energy refuelling mechanism that requires scanning new Tic Tac boxes to refill monsters' dancing energy.

We created an augmented reality app for Sharmuziks - a colorful children book by a young author Tim Brick with cute characters that just cannot stay out of adventure.

The author wanted to make his first book different from other children books. He also wanted to gain more readers and increase sales of the book. So we applied some AR-magic to achive that.

We empowered the book

with the AR technology, bringing the characters to life, adding mini-games and quests, and creating a really interactive reading experience. We incorporated the gyroscope functionality and added exciting puzzles. It has become even easier to fall in love with those little cuties and help them through many challenges!

An AR app that turned usual phone accessories into a memorable emotional experience. For each type of accessories, we created a unique animations that comes to life in AR right on the product packaging.

We revealed the soul of the product with a set of stylized animations that tell short and cute stories and symbolize the product's identity. Here are the dolphins that swim in the spectacularly realistic water and

start to dance with their fins to the music of a Krazi bluetooth speaker. Then, there is a charming jellyfish and a lava meteor shower on a paradise island. You better see it with your own two eyes.

Our business tasks for this project was to improve brand recognizability and boost seasonal sales of a new Juiceeks ice cream.

To achieve that, we’ve made an ordinary ice cream into an exciting space adventure in AR by creating a character, story, an entire space universe, and a variety of mini-games activated by scanning a Juiceeks ice cream pack.

Each new pack unlocks a new space adventure:

runners, gyroscope-based immersive quests, puzzles, platformers and other mini-games are on offer for ice cream lovers. And as if that wasn’t enough, we spiced the story up with an interesting storyline, educational content about space, and bonuses to stimulate the target audience’s interest.

Magazine interest and sales both increased after implementing Live Animations’ designs, which demonstrated their intuitive understanding of the target market. The team regularly delivered creative and engaging designs through methodical, organized project management. 

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the VP of Marketing for “Poznaika,” an international children’s magazine. We have been operating in the Ukrainian market since 1996 and were awarded Best Ukrainian Children’s Periodical in 2013 by the Ukraine Committee of Television and Radio.  

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Live Animations?

We hired them to publish AR designs and create regular content for three of our magazines, “Poznaika from 2 to 6,” “Coloring Book with a Cartoon,” and “Poznaika from 6 and Up.”

One of our goals was to popularize the new capabilities of a printed magazine for children ages 2 to 12. We also wanted to increase interest and engagement with the printed edition by using new gaming features like collectible AR designs. 

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We met them at an exhibition in 2014.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

At the beginning of each year, we determined the topics for the coming year and selected designs from Live Animation’s catalog. They provided sketches of the new AR designs every month for us to approve, then published them according to the primary topic of that particular issue, the printed edition of which we had already supplied them. 

What was the team composition?

The team consisted of members from the Kiev office and the PR director. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

We invited elementary school students for office tours, during which we actively used AR designs to promote our printed editions. In addition, Live Animation’s PR director served as the curator for “Modern IT Technology,” one of our development programs that introduced children to the art of creating “come to life” images. Both of these efforts increased interest in our magazines and improved sales.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The project management was highly organized.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

This is a reliable company that embraces an artistic approach.

Are there any areas for improvement?

They could integrate more specific app localization for the Ukrainian market.

Segodnya newspaper – the biggest daily socially political newspaper in Ukraine and number one on the printed media market. I'm the Chief Editor

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Live Animations?

To launch a new product called AR rubric for kids and youth.

What were your goals for this project?

We aim to excel in everything and introduce new technologies to our readers. The launch of the AR rubric aimed to attract youth that is interested in tech. Segodnya became the first newspaper in Ukraine that took advantage of AR in printed media.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We studied the companies that offer similar services in Ukraine and chose the most reputable company with a portfolio that matched our needs.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

Live Animations provided us with AR layouts for our rubric. We complimented them with explanatory text for our youngest readers. Live Animations provided us with layouts and catalogs, from which we chose those that matched best. Selected materials were sent over by Live Animations to our designers for further page-proofs. The provided service was flawless. Live Animations’ specialists carefully followed our work and were able to provide help and consult on every stage.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

This project helped us to grow the audience among kids and youth that love tech and proved once again that we are the leader of Ukraine’s press market. The rubric has become popular not only among kids, but also among their parents.

The fact that we started using AR in printed media caused a great interest in the professional field. I’ve talked about our company’s experience in several interviews for marketing and media resources. Also, one of Ukraine’s most popular TV channels “Ukraina," aired a program about our AR introduction in a newspaper, which helped facilitate public interest in our media and position it as progressive and modern, not something that is about to become history.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Everything was top notch.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The speed of reaction to our inquiries and requests and the quality of the provided AR layouts.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I have no suggestion about this!

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m an advertising manager for Ural Dumplings Factory, a Russian producer of different kinds of dumplings. We have several websites, and one of them was created specifically for our new project.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Live Animations?

We needed help with a new marketing strategy to promote our products.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They’ve helped us develop our whole strategy around augmented reality, creating an iOS and Android application and helping us check it. The Android version is finished, and the iOS one is in process. They gave us professional technical assessments and some creative ideas on how we could develop our project. It uses a combination of 5G technology and viral marketing.

What is the team composition?

We communicated via Skype with 2–3 people, but the work was done very quickly, so we think that at least 20 people were involved.

How did you come to work with Live Animations?

It was difficult to find a good company that could help us implement our project. We found Live Animations by chance online and realized that they were high-level specialists, and a leading augmented reality developer.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them at the end of 2018 and the collaboration is ongoing. The development of the app took place in March 2019, in a matter of weeks.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We appreciated their work very much. They delivered what we wanted, and they helped us with some questions—we’re sure that they’re one of the best companies in the world. They’re real professionals in the market, and we would recommend them to other companies that want to develop augmented reality products.

We haven’t started using the applications yet as the project is still in development. We hope that, in the near future, the augmented reality applications will improve our profit and help us become the first Russian company with a marketing strategy that involves augmented reality.

How did Live Animations perform from a project management standpoint?

They were the only company that agreed to help implement the project in its entirety, in the time set by our main directors. They did everything according to our schedule, met all the deadlines, and didn’t cause any problems in terms of time management. Their staff is smart and creative, and we wish them success.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It’s their creativity. They offered us several ideas for free, and we could choose any of them to develop. Everything was done according to our deadlines too, which I appreciated a lot.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don’t think so. We’ve always worked collaboratively, and they were ready to help us if we had a question.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

No, I can't name anything specific.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The quality of the animations helped secure lucrative deals with retailers and fostered further collaboration for new books. The Live Animations team is responsive and accessible despite working remotely, a result of thorough project management strategies.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the director of business development at an AR children's book company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Live Animations?

We contracted with Live Animations to help us create AR animations for a collection of children’s books.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Using the Unity platform, they developed our mobile application for Android and iOS. Users can scan the cover of each book in the collection, and it downloads the book on to the user’s phone. On pages that feature our company logo, users scan the page, and the character comes to life. 

Live Animations built AR components that allow users to play with the character. There are also coloring pages and interactive hidden object pages.

What is the team composition?

We worked closely with 3–4 people in the beginning, but we now have a single point of contact for everything.

How did you come to work with Live Animations?

We met them at a toy trade show in New York. We did a lot of prior research, but we had never seen their kind of quality before. They were clearly the best option we could have selected.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our initial engagement spanned October 2017–January 2018. We plan to continue working with them, however, and we have about eight more books in the pipeline.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our books are now sold in stores, but we wouldn’t have gotten into the stores without the AR component. Retailers have been blown away by the quality of their work.

In terms of their workflow, it was very smooth. They met deadlines, and the project itself was very successful, so it ended up being a great experience.

How did Live Animations perform from a project management standpoint?

The project management systems they have in place are truly impressive. We never had any issues, and most of the time they finished faster than we expected. We had no trouble communicating despite the time zone differences.

We had weekly Skype calls to check in on the project status and make sure that everything was on track. There was never a delay, and, if we had to change something on short notice, it was never a problem at all.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The communication between our teams was very good. Whenever there was an issue, they communicated with us openly so that we’d know right away if something was up.

The quality of their work is the best we’ve ever seen. They are truly leaders in their field. They managed the project very well. We’re fortunate to have found them, and we look forward to working with them more in the future.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, it was a very smooth process all in all. There was nothing to criticize.
