Momo Launch

Momo is China’s leading location based social connection app with over 150 million users and counting.
It is like a cross between Highlight and Tinder.

The Challenge

We’ve been tasked with developing a brand launch for them, as it has a current perception problem of being purely a hookup app.

 

The Idea

Interesting Awaits

We want to show people the interesting users, groups, events awaiting them on Momo, beyond sex.

It’s not just about inspiring with a brand film though,  people need to experience this point of view to believe Momo’s changing.

So we launched the brand with a location-aware film:

 

The film when viewed on mobile, introduces you to relevant groups and people around you for real:

For outdoor, we’ve also set up Real Time Contextual Billboards to showcase and inspire people with all the interesting connections you can make on Momo.

The pilot billboard was setup at the biggest music festival in China, the Strawberry Music Festival:

It showcased the real-time interests of Momo users, such as their favorite music genres, favorite acts at the festival and so on, encouraging potential users to hop on.

You can download the infographic page onto your Momo app to explore and make new connections.

Down the road, we plan to setup these intelligent contextual billboards in major bar areas, shopping areas and special festivals in major cities.

Momo – Chinese New Year App Innovation

Momo is China’s leading location based social connection app with over 150 million users and counting.

It saw the chaos of the mass Chinese New Year migration as a great opportunity to help others make genuine connections through its app.

Because Momo believes old friends bring you comfort, but it is new friends that will make your life more interesting.

And we were up to the challenge, creating a brand new function in the app that not only helped the brand and also did good for China!

The Kobe-mojis

How do you immortalize Kobe Bryant in China, on his retirement day?

Beyond the transient social tributes, the grandiose one-off farewell films…

Why not make him part of Chinese basketball fans social conversations, forever?

With his passing, this project suddenly meant so much more to me.

RIP Kobe and Gigi.

SKII Art of Travel Retail Experience

SKII created a series of travel exclusive products with the help of artist Yuko Shimizu.

These products were only available in the 6 corresponding airports worldwide.

And we wanted to reward consumers with a more immersive experience when you pick it up for yourself or as a gift.

So we brought Ms Yuko’s designs to life via AR Packaging Animations, so you can live and breathe inside her packaging designs, like a magical digital postcard.

It was truly a surprise and delight for our consumers who were more than willing to share their discoveries.

The Latte Art Printer

Our success for Starbucks led to other work from other coffee chains in other markets.

Let’s Café is one of Taiwan’s biggest coffee chain with over 2000 stores. The problem is, it is not really a store. More like a kiosk in the Family Mart convenience store.

How can Let’s Café offer a credible café experience against bigger, more established chains with proper stores?

The solution: we offered our consumers something extra that even big coffee chains can’t. A latte art customization that is ridiculously unique and fun.
We kicked it off in our most popular stores.

We provided a simple App, all consumers had to do was upload an image from their mobile to this machine…

And viola! The image gets sprinkled onto their latte, forming the ultimate latte art.

Lots of people shared their creations with friends on social media. People printed everything from their own photos, their favorite pets, even wallpaper patterns and their favorite graphics. Let’s Café became the talk of town, upstaging bigger coffee chains.

It also created a lot of PR buzz, not just in Taiwan, but also internationally.

We’re for Chefs:A Data-Powered Transformation Journey

For Unilever Food Solutions, we created the:

“We’re for Chefs” Platform

It’s a 3-year journey with them and counting, making their marketing smarter and transforming their business digitally along the way.

It started with building a long-term B2B platform housed in Wechat with inspirational videos of how we helped real chefs, leading to recipes, skill upgrades, consultation services and sample packs.

Here’s one of the stories of real chefs we told:

These stories will lead to our main platform, including a recipes library:

chefs-mobile

In the following year, we enriched the platform with big data from restaurant review apps and food deliver apps to help chefs predict the dining trends of young diners.

We visualized the data findings in interesting ways and offered new recipes for the chefs to meet the young diners’ needs.

Here’s a data report sample:

 

The Nike Girl Currency

This is an ambitious crypto-currency project I was working on for Nike while in W+K Portland.

Only 1% of total world aid fundings go to girl causes.

If they’re not giving girls the money, we will help girls create their own girl currency.

A currency girls can earn by doing good for other girls, and in turn, they can spend this currency earned on things such as their school fees.

It could potentially change the world.

The Hennessy Classivm Convenience Club

Hennessy Classivm is launching a 20cl bottle in convenient stores.

In China, convenient stores look very unglamorous, so we transformed them to make the purchase experience feel like magic.

 

 

 

Pernod Ricard’s AI-Powered Loyalty Program

Pernod Ricard believes having direct consumer relationships is “the way forward”.

The Kindred Club Project is a Wechat CRM program with serious machine-learning chops that we are creating for Pernod Ricard.

It will learn more about you through fun campaigns and quizzes.

It will encourage you to explore new drinks in the Pernod Ricard universe based on what you like.

And it will reward you at the right place and the right time both online and offline.

Here’s a preview of what’s to come:

 

The Starbucks Breakfast Alarm

To launch Starbuck’s new line of breakfast, we created an alarm function in Starbuck’s existing app.
Simply set the alarm, wake up, get to your nearest Starbucks within 60 minutes,
to enjoy breakfast discounts and free coffee!
