Reverse pitch process

on July 24, 2013 by Bridget Comments

I find this proactive approach to new business by Fantasy Interactive (Fi) very interesting. Most pitches are called by clients, asking the agency to present a vision for the brand or business.   Fi have flipped the situation.  They’ve simply published a vision for how the travel & aviation sector could be improved online.

KLM Must See Map combines social media with print

on February 13, 2013 by Mark Comments

This is a really nice idea that brings online and real life together very well. KLM Royal Dutch Airlines recently launched a new global social media campaign: KLM Must See Map, made by friends. The online campaign, currently running in 24 countries, enables visitors to create a personalized city map, filled with tips from their friends. Participants will receive the high-quality printed city map at home – all for free. Biggest issue is that it takes three weeks to get it which ruins the idea if spontaneous travel is your thing.

Move, Learn and Eat

on August 5, 2011 by Tim Comments

Remember WalkUSA’s animation of the Walk Across America guy? These mates here have walked across the globe and assembled their shots into one continuous experience of our beautiful world. The three films have exploded on Vimeo, add to the view count of Move, Learn and Eat and wait for them to appear (modified) in an ad for STA Travel (specialist for student travel) soon. Read more…

Bacardi Murmansk Route

on October 30, 2007 by Martina Comments

Four groups of friends are currently travelling across Europe paid by Bacardi to reach Murmansk, Russia. The project is called Bacardi Murmansk Route, the travellers have left early this month from the sunny Tarifa, they have more than 6.000 km to go across with only €1,400 each and a locked case with worthy and misterious content they will get to know only if they finish their trip. As Bacardi explains in the press release, it’s not a race, it’s not a competition, a homage to the travelers’ spirit of freedom. Each group has its own blog, where they post videos, comments and photos (see for example the blog of Gorka, Javi and Nuria). It’s definitely a project to highlight the aspirational side of the Bacardi brand, it looks interesting, and I’m sure it’s generating quite some PR buzz in Spain, but I can’t help thinking it’s way to last year’s Junior Lucky Bastard project launched by 55DSL.

Travelzoo optmistic about online advertising in 2004

on January 9, 2004 by Martina Comments

Travelzoo, one of the largest sellers of travel advertising on the Internet, sees higher demand for online advertising in the year 2004. The company bases its view on the number and volume of insertion orders for advertising in 2004 that it received by the first week of the new year. The note has been expressed in a press release in which, Elizabeth Rose, Senior Vice President of Strategy at Travelzoo, commented:

“”We are very pleased with the number and volume of insertion orders that we have already received for 2004. In 2003, travel companies hesitated about making long-term advertising commitments. The combination of economic recovery and strong competition is now creating advertising demand, and also great travel values for the consumer.”

In my opinion, it’s a little bit too early to express such a statement, anyway I appreciate such a bravery to come up with a positive and stimulating (for the advertising industry) note.
