SAUZA: Make It With A Lifeguard

With the success of Sauza’s “Make It…” campaigns, they continued to move strong with 2013’s Make It With A Lifeguard. 

As the digital agency, we were able to capture stills from the TVC shoot to use for all digital work from site updates to social postings and templates. We also created a few “keepsakes” for users in the form of screensaves for desktop and mobile, and calendars to print.

HORNITOS: Not Just Any Tequila

Hornitos launched the Not Just Any Tequila campaign in 2013. As the digital creative agency, we were responsible for designing and developing media ad banners, social postings and templates, and of course a website to provide product information, events, recipes, and other social media.

The GIF backgrounds of the website were created in a one day shoot which I had the opportunity of producing with a talented team of creatives, photographer and production crew.

I also participated in going to our partner agency’s TVC shoot in order to capture still photography for use in our client’s social networks.

TWIX: LEFT Twix® RIGHT Twix® Campaign

For Twix’s 2012 campaign, we brought to life the Left versus Right Twix idea and created an HTML site to support TV and print. With the redesign of Twix, along with other MARS brands, our team also faced the issue of making all MARS brands compliant with their nutritional standards. As a result, we were able to create a template for all MARS brands to follow moving forward, from content creation to design/working Photoshop files.

Midway through the campaign, we also launched a sweepstakes that included SMS entry, mobile accessibility, and a full desktop experience.

I had the opportunity to work with a great creative team and oversee our digital production partners.

iAd

Working alongside the development team from Apple, we were able to design and build a custom iAd for the American Express Zync Card.

The goal for the iAd experience was to have it be just as customizable as the Zync card so we’ve built several elements to the iAd including a profile creator in which a user is able to select packs based on their own interests (from food to travel to fashion), and a music download section where they can also download full tracks from the TV spots for free.

The banners were placed in affinity-targeted apps (ex. Pandora, NYTimes, Huff Post)  running now through February 26.

The iAd also won Mobile of the Day on FWA:

GAP 1969 FALL CAMPAIGN

For GAP’s 1969 Fall Campaign, I had the opportunity to produce several online advertisement pieces including standard and rich media banners, video content, and additional creatives that would live across GAP’s Adult and Kids/Baby collections.

I worked alongside the broadcast, digital influence, digital strategy, account, and creative teams to provide the over arching campaign assets and technical support for all legs of the campaign which included YouTube videos, partnered content, Facebook content, along with additional social media assets.

With the success of the previous Metroid Prime Trilogy microsite, Nintendo worked with us again in creating the user experience, designing, and developing their new Metroid game release, Metroid:Other M.

EQUESTRIAN NEIGHTION

When my team and I were approached to design and build a virtual world for young horse enthusiasts, we were excited to test our creative abilities to develop a realistic world for young equestrians.

 We also won FWA's site of the day:

AXE

The AXE campaign drove consumers to visit “THE FIXERS" site. Here, users would be able to "play" pranks on their friends through social media tools. We built photo manipulation gags, custom video players and channels through YouTube, as well as building a fake database to show a user has signed up for a false site. Each of these "pranks" were created for sharing through across multiple networking sites.
