BMW i3 Super Bowl: Newfangled Idea
The BMW i3 is a rethink of what a car can be. But while its funky design and groundbreaking engineering attracted early adopters, the mainstream just wasnt seeing its significance. With more electric BMWs needed on the road to meet government deadlines, we needed a brave approach. Through a clever idea and a partnership strategy with big PR potential, we sparked interest and changed beliefs: A 175% lift in perceptions of innovation and an 80% increase in consideration among our primary buyer paved the way for BMWs future electric growth.

#Unclaimed: The Hunt for a Missing Millionaire
The New York Lottery loves winners, but in 2014 many went missing. Missing winners are bad for business because hearing about winners encourages people to buy tickets. So we went looking for a missing winner whose $7 million ticket was about to expire. Armed with paper and tape, we posted hand-drawn missing person flyers around the winning location. Those small flyers yielded big results. National news networks took notice and brought our message to the masses, engagement with the brand increased by over 100% online, and jackpot sales increased 19%.
