Greenpeace, play and save the world

on August 6, 2008 by Martina Comments

I like usually enjoy videogames, I said I followed the CyberLions but I really don’t understand why I found out about Greenpeace - WeAtheR only today (maybe because their PR agency dropped me an email? . After this silly premise, let’s get serious and explore the advergame that looks like one of the best Flash projects of the year.

Greenpeace Weather is a strategy multiplayer game on which players become activists to fight against the climate changes. Their mission is to join other activists to solve environmental crises that affect the planet using cooperation and coordination.

Developed also as a real game, made on recycled paper and recycled wood, soon it will be distributed in schools around Brazil.

Mammut Mount Everest Viral

on March 10, 2006 by admin Comments

Mary Woodbridge lives in Greenfield, UK, together with her dog Daisy. Mary is about to climb Mount Everest. On her site, Mary has a few video clips of the preparations she’s been doing. There’s a ‘Tips for Mary’ corner and ‘Plan and Training’ section. The website looks like a very basic one in html, the way websites were made long ago in forgotten decades of the previous century. You just got to see this, it’s a great experience, created by Spillmann/Felser/Leo Burnett from Zurich, Switzerland.

Story: An 85-year old British Lady by the name of Mary Wooldbridge, who takes her dachshund for a daily walk, buys a Mammut-Jacket to proctect herself from the wind and weather. This Jacket is obviously so good that the elderly lady believes that she can climb Mount Everest wearing it.

Online Adv: don’t forget of media players

on February 12, 2004 by Martina Comments

The power of the Internet as an advertising media goes beyond the browser. The latest trends talk about “desktop” advertising, but Instant messaging promotions are doing pretty well too. The new possibilities of getting in touch with the consumer through a computer are analyzed on IAR, quoting the opinion of Andy Jedynak, senior VP and general manager of desktop app WeatherBug who says that:

Internet apps are better than a Web site for targeting people. You don’t have to load from the Web. Since users go to so much trouble to download the app, there’s more loyalty, and when there’s more loyalty, advertising is more effective.

Apparently, marketers now have new tools to create surround advertising session (and don’t forget of media players!).
