British Airways & MINI Olympic symphonies

on August 2, 2012 by Martina Comments

Nice little interactive project by BBH London for British Airways. All the tweets, posts and messages that British fans share to support home athletes at the Olympics are compiled creating a sound wave that shows the amount of social buzz throughout the day. An interactive symphony is played, and the music shows a crescendo when the social conversation gets louder and, viceversa, slows down when fans become more quiet . Read more…

From the logo to the heart and soul of British Airways, a virtual path through a kind of cross stitch pattern. has created a click and zoom experience to let flyers visually discover the quality of BA services on board.

British Airways, come fly with me

on November 30, 2006 by Martina Comments

British sense of humor arrives to France, with a new Publicis Dialog advertainment website for British Airways which makes fun of low cost airlines (link removed). Unfortunately my French is not good enough to appreciate the jokes, but I find very interesting the fact that British Airways “dares” launching an interactive campaign in France to challenge its natural competitor Air France (and not only the low cost airlines). An article on Le Journal du Net, explains a few more things about the campaign. The site Serviceaprè is actually only the first of an effort which will grow over the next few months with more media (outdoor and mobile marketing, for example) involved. To my Italian friends, the website will remind the brialliant “No Alpitour? Ahiaiaiaiai” campaign realized a few years ago.

Travel the Google Earth with British Airways

on September 3, 2006 by Martina Comments

British Airways is using Google Earth to promote its discounted rates to over 100 destinations worldwide. NMA reports the airline has created a “layer” to Google Earth which allows users to research holiday or business trips with high-resolution satellite images. By browsing the world with Google Earth, travellers wannabe can learn the most relevant information about the chosen destination as well as the most updated British Airways fares to get there. A very original idea that once again confirms how powerful Google’s tools are when it comes to online marketing. It’s just a question of using a little bit of creativity and imagination, then the sky is the limit, and British Airways (together with, I believe) has clearly shown how far and cleverly you can go.
