TOKYO, Tuesday: Ricardo Adolfo – ECD at TBWA\Media Arts Lab Japan & South Korea – has selected DDB Aotearoa’s work for Tourism NZ as his global best interactive advertising of the week.
“In 2022,” Adolfo writes on the Bestads website (scroll down for the link), “the world began to open up, enticing tourists back to their countries.
“They bared everything. The wonders sights and sounds on display, all at once.
“They created a campaign that withheld and concealed the nation, compelling the viewer to come, and reveal it for themselves.”
“DDB Aotearoa and Tourism New Zealand didn’t do that. They created a campaign that withheld and concealed the nation, compelling the viewer to come, and reveal it for themselves.
“This mobile experience was one of six unique experiences only given to the curious after engaging with another piece of the campaign.
“In this interactive experience, the user can learn how to open a kina (an Aotearoa delicacy) like a local. But of course, only when they come, do they learn what it actually tastes like!”
