The great phone swap

on December 15, 2013 by Bridget Comments

This isn’t new, but I thought it was interesting.  Sony found a very simple but effective way to get the Xperia Z into the hands of iPhone users at the Way out West music festival in Sweden.  They created a popup battery charging station at the festival and offered the chance to try out an Xperia Z while their old phone was charging.

Sony’s ringing drink

on November 19, 2012 by Martina Comments

I’m a big fan of experience marketing activations in movie theaters. I think the media allows you to be pretty creative, very direct and, most of all, to generate a great amount of talkability, at least in the city where the action takes place, and possibly also online if you do a good job seeding the case study video.

The latest good execution is made in Sweden, where CP+B came up with a pretty sweet idea to prove the Sony Xperia Acro S mobile phone is waterproof. Read more…

Sony: Singing in the car

on November 21, 2009 by Martina Comments

From Japan a super crazy and super cool campaign by Sony to promote a new vehicle navigation system. The idea is very simple an it is inspired by something we (almost) all do in the car when we drive with our friends or even by ourselves: we sing.

The campaign is an online audition to pick the best performers singing in the car. Not only the videos get uploaded on Sony’s website, but the best ones also will become part of the TV spot that will go on air as from mid-December.

This is definitely a perfect example of interactive TV content created with consumers help.

Sony meets Kabuki

on July 26, 2009 by Martina Comments

Casual Sunday surfing through my Asian bookmarks… Just discovered Sony meets Cinema Kabuki, an online art project by Sony which rediscovers a classical Japanese dance-drama.

Very nice interface, and the content looks pretty interesting too. Too bad there is no English version, because it would have been nice to understand more about Kabuki.

The legend of Heavenly Sword

on August 19, 2007 by Martina Comments

Sony has recently launched a new game for PS3 called Heavenly Sword. As part of the related marketing activities they’ve of course put online also a multi-language website. Even if I don’t like the style of the graphics, this is not the genre of game I’d like to play and I’m an Xbox fan, I must say I’m impressed by the video content they feature on the site… First of all there’s a series of animated episodes explaining the “legend” of Heavenly Sword.
