A brand experience campaign across Canada culminating in a visit to the North pole.
A 6 metre replica of the Budweiser goal light travelled across Canada starting in New Brunswick and across to Vancouver before finally traveling to the most Northerly Inuit community. A distance of over 15,000 kilometres. At each destination the goal light was synced to the “Goal light” app so that real time goals from the teams at any of the cities visited would trigger the goal light and sound a horn.
The Swarm production team were tasked with producing a device which could withstand extreme weather with winds of 140km/hour and temperatures of -40c.
Apart from being our most technically and logistically challenging project the red light campaign won numerous awards. The Red Light campaign achieved unprecedented results across social media, brand awareness, campaign impressions and weekly sales.
As part of O2’s move to their new headquarters building in Slough; Swarm were commissioned to design and build an artistic installation for their atrium building. The piece had to represent the current core brand values but be able to adapt to the companies long term strategy.
Stretching over 12 metres the ribbon of flexible LED screens, with a resolution of 1230 X 64, ascends out of the atrium floor and across the reception area. The polished stainless steel exterior surface reflects the surrounding environment and the unique LED screens communicate the latest campaigns, strategies and real time information.
