Not a good moment to go out/Single consumer
Agency: Proximity, Colombia
Darpapaya, a restaurant in Colombia’s capital city of Bogota, was popular in the local media and among young people in the first year it was open. As the buzz from its opening wore off, the restaurant needed a way to re-establish its reputation as a hip, youthful destination. Darpapaya gathered 412 mobile opt-ins and turned to agency Proximity, Colombia to reinvigorate sales. The agency promoted the restaurant’s delivery service with the “Not a good moment to go out” campaign. It sent multimedia messages encouraging prospects to order in because of dire situations outdoors, such as an attack by Godzilla.
Thmbnls – interactive mobile drama/Single nonprofit

Client: COI (Central Office of Information), DCSF (Dept. of Children, Schools & Families)
The UK government wanted to create a dialogue with its teenage population about safe sex, engaging and involving them over a prolonged period of time in a new way. 2020 London’s “Thmbnls” campaign — spelling “thumbnails” without the vowels, as teens would in a text message — featured 22 minute-long mobile episodes dealing with the issue. After watching each episode, users received texts and phone calls from the characters, opening up discussion.

The uArt application created by BBDO for P&G’s Gillette brand was designed to remind young men of the vintage Wooly Willy toy. This is probably the last generation that will remember moving the metal shavings to form different hair clumps on the cardboard face. This version in the form of an iPhone application enabled them to play with the toy in a mobile format and share creations through e-mail and Facebook.
