Brand stories and you
The broadcaster Tele5 has launched two new advertising opportunities: “Today is your day” and “This is your week”. Advertisers are being given the option to sponsor whole days or entire weeks of Tele5's digital channels. Brands like Coca-Cola, Philips and Orange have already taken advantage of this facility.
Why it matters
Media saturation and fragmentation means that brands have to look for new techniques in old media to communicate their messages. What does exclusive domination of a channel mean for the type of message delivered through these media? Will we see more consecutive ads that create a real brand story? Perhaps such stories could even be linked to a webseries where consumers can influence content?
German University Students created ‘Songfever’, a device that makes digital music libraries tangible. A webcam-projector apparatus casts the covers of music albums on LP-sized wooden boards on a shelf. On their reverse the playlists of the albums can be browsed by turning a knob that is attached to the shelf.
German lifestyle and cooking magazine Effilee does not only look yummy, it also smells great. To illustrate its gourmet capabilities, the xmas edition was varnished with a cinnamon scent for a mouth-watering experience.
