AR for Marketing: Warner Bros. 80 Years of Bugs Bunny

Objective:  Increase brand engagement

To celebrate Bugs Bunny’s 80th birthday, we worked with Warner Bros. to create this fun-filled campaign. Fans of Bugs can scan the QR to unlock a series of new and exciting content each day, from animations to Looney face filters, featuring classic Looney Tunes gags, like the Acme anvil and Bugs Bunny’s carrot, to share online. The campaign also featured an Instant World Tracked experience, where the user can meet Bugs Bunny, check the mailbox and receive a virtual parcel. 

AR for Packaging: Nestle Minions 70s Photo Filters

Objective: Increase sales and brand awareness

Continuing our work with Nestle we created this cereal box experience that allows young consumers to interact with the characters of the popular franchise Minions. Simply scan the box to unlock an array of different 70’s themed face filters, with a fun Minions inspired polaroid photo border. Once the photos are taken, you are then given a chance to save them or to share them on social media, perfect for brand engagement. This experience is a perfect example of the power of AR when used for connected packaging, to find out more download our 2020 Guide to Connected Packaging >>

AR for Marketing: Groove Jones - Corona Custom Sneakers

Objective: Drive customer engagement

Our partners at Groove Jones have been working with Corona Extra and the Texas Longhorns to give their customers a chance to win a pair of limited edition sneakers. Using a WebAR portal, sneaker fans were transported to a tropical beach scene, with a bucket of ice-cold corona between two beach chairs. They were then tasked to find the box of Corona hidden in the scene to get a sneak peek of the new custom shoes and for a chance to win a pair.

AR for Social Cause: FlyAR - Tartu, Healthy Boost AR

ZapWorks users, FlyAR created this project for the Estonian city of Tartu to encourage health and fitness in the city. Locals and visitors can access a 3D map, showing them where all public outdoor gyms and sports grounds are located and as well as an animation of different exercise moves. The experience has a map that includes 3D animations of Tartu’s well-known landmarks, as well as map links that can be opened to show a 360 image of the area and grounds.

AR for Marketing: Brand Method Mandurah Recovery Campaign with Justin Langer

Objective: Encourage local tourism 

As part of a campaign to encourage more tourism to the Australian town of Mandurah, AR Production house, Brand Method used ZapWorks to create an AR-powered experience for the locals to feel more involved in their community. By scanning a QR code, the experience opens up to a video of famous cricket coach Justin Langer, as he explains why he loves the city and how we can get involved and spread the message to increase the tourism in Mandurah. Once the video ends, there are different options to get involved, including campaign assets and shareable photos. These link to the main website where you can access more information.
