Case studies

Nestlé / Animal Planet

Challenge

To create an entertaining and educational content for an on-pack promotion that would encourage new shopper trials of Nestlé cereals and increase loyalty with existing customers.

 

Insight

If our promotion educates as well as entertains 7-12 year old children (the consumer), Mum (the shopper) will feel better about trying and buying the product!

 

Solution

Our unique solution was to build an ‘Edutainment’ promotion that would have mass shopper appeal. This resulted in a partnership with the global brand Animal Planet. We created from scratch 3 bespoke Animal Planet Quiz CDs to encourage collectability and repeat purchase.

* All Packaging and Point-of-Sale designed by Ocean Branding

 

Nestlé / Hot Wheels

Challenge

To create a bespoke on-pack and in-store promotion that would encourage new shopper trials of Nestlé cereals and increase loyalty with existing customers.

 

Insight

The hot toy that year was Hot Wheels. If our promotion entertained 7-12 year old boys (the consumer) then mum (the shopper) will feel encouraged to buy the product.

As an extra bonus, the dad enjoyed the game too!

 

Solution

The games had to have collectability whilst also remaining unique and re-playable. Hot Wheels generated an immediately associated fun factor. Partnering with Hot Wheels we designed 3 different tailor-made Hot Wheels racing games.

 

Nestlé / Microsoft Flying Games

Challenge

Nestlé wanted to strengthen the credibility of their on-pack promotions in the ‘kids’ cereal category, as well as promote brand loyalty and new shopper trials.

 

Insight

Children love games. Credibility is gained through the world’s leading hardware and software producer.

Upfront has a wealth of experience in on-pack and in-pack promotional content and concepts. We have been working with this format of promotion for over fifteen years.

 

Solution

We partnered with Microsoft to create a bespoke series of branded children’s flying games for an on-pack giveaway.

 

Nestlé / Rio

Challenge

Nestlé wanted to create exclusive content from a major Hollywood blockbuster film in keeping with their own market demographic.

 

Insight

Our research team’s comprehensive knowledge of the film, music and TV sector meant that we could swiftly act upon the brief and gain the exclusive content our client desired.

 

Solution

Films have already either been watched by the consumer at the cinema or purchased on DVD. Therefore we concluded that we would create a new content platform based on a mass appealing children’s film.
