Thinking of using AR activated experiences to increase brand engagement, showcase products or celebrate releases?
Find out how Zappar Creative Studio and ZapWorks partner agencies achieved this in this month's top pick WebAR experiences.

“July’s Month in AR features some fantastic marketing use cases and brought to mind one of my favourite marketing adages – “The best marketing doesn't feel like marketing”. From visualizing the Schwab Firebird in AR to creating your own custom avatar within the King’s Hawaiian Universe, each experience captivates, engages and entertains in ways that are almost impossible to replicate in more traditional marketing channels.”  

Dave Mather, Head of Marketing at Zappar

Not only has there been some great marketing use cases but our developers have been hard at work with the amazing updates to ZapWorks Designer to help elevate your projects.
