2012 - The Year in Digital

REPURPOSING AD BLOCKERS:
 

These were everywhere this year. Dove changed ads with airbrushed models to messages of support for the 99% of regular shaped women reading them. Earth Link deleted any product made with child labor and R/GA created an anti-spoiler chrome extension for the Euro Cup that blocked anything to do with your team.

SIMPLE REPURPOSING OF WEBTEXT AS COPY

A nice twist. This year saw a few examples of simple webtext such as URL’s and Dummy Text creatively used as headlines and copy points. Super simple, unexpected and innovative.

USING REAL WORLD COMMON OBJECTS TO CONTROL DIGITAL SCREENS
 

Gotta say, this was pretty awesome. Phones controlling banner ads, car keys controlling digital billboards. Really cool. Lot's of room to play in this space moving into 2013.

SECOND SCREEN EXPERIENCES:
 

This is a game changer. Not many of these are out there, but this is changing, fast. It’s the smartest way digital agencies can create content that owns an entire TV ad break.
