Synopsis of the campaigns recognized include:
Chewy Halloween Fur-tual Boutique | Chewy.com
Coffee & Chewy developed a virtual try-on WebAR mobile experience which is the first of its kind full-body-try-on enabling pet parents to visualize their dogs and cats of ALL SIZES in seven of Chewy's top Frisco Halloween costume styles. The "Fur-tual Boutique" Campaign was hosted on Chewy.com where exclusive digital content was supported by social media and QR codes to help drive Chewy fans to the frictionless mobile WebAR experience. Chewy's Fur-tual Boutique Campaign became one of the largest AR campaigns ever launched in the pets category.
Invesco QQQ 2021 March Madness | Invesco QQQ
Coffee Labs worked with Invesco to adapt the Invesco QQQ's creative campaign 'Agents of Innovation' to create compelling and engaging content for the college sports audience and leverage the massive brand reach of March Madness. Coffee Labs created a WebAR-enabled basketball game hosted by former NBA legend Grant Hill and sponsored by Invesco QQQ. The Augmented Reality experience allowed users to bring Grant Hill and the basketball hoop into their living room through their smartphones, where they can swipe to shoot baskets. For each basket scored, players earned digital dough and through AR data visualization could see just how much it would grow if invested in QQQ over 10 years.
Spot the Changes Holiday Campaign | American Century Investments
Coffee Labs developed an interactive landing page that allowed clients of American Century Investments to participate in a fun, engaging "spot the change" game as part of a holiday campaign. An email message invited their clients to a website with the "spot the change" interactive game where they were tasked with clicking on 10 differences between the side-by-side illustrations. The differences contained a pop-up message about how to incorporate sustainability, health/safety, kindness, and diversity/equity/inclusion into our everyday lives.
Guide To The Markets® in Augmented Reality | J.P. Morgan Asset Management
J.P. Morgan Asset Management commissioned Coffee to develop a way to help the brand "Be Bold" by bringing renowned strategist Dr. David Kelly and the Guide to the Markets® to life in a unique way through Augmented Reality. Coffee created an interactive WebAR experience featuring a holographic version of Dr. Kelly that delivered insights from each quarter's latest Guide to the Markets. The initial experience in 4th Quarter 2021 included elements from the Guide within the AR experience such as graphs, photos, and videos. The second version in 1st Quarter 2022 went further and used creative 3D models to help explain the data from Guide to the Markets. Coffee enhanced this program by creating customized standard and rich media advertising units that match the AR experience.
#ACCFantasy Golf | American Century Investments
For 23 years, American Century Investments has been the title sponsor of the American Century Championship (ACC), a premier celebrity charity golf tournament. Due to the pandemic and the inability to gather in public, Coffee worked with American Century to design and build an interactive microsite to activate Fantasy Golf. The site divided the 88 celebrity golfers into five ranked groups allowing fantasy players to build teams choosing one golfer from each. Leveraging past tournament footage, fans were invited to the site through ten social videos celebrating the event's impressive roster—each one carrying a unique theme specific to the featured celebrities. Over 3,000 Fantasy teams were built in less than two weeks and the buzz the campaign generated contributed to the highest tournament rating since 2009 with 6.6M viewers.
