Microsite

IKEA in the Kitchen. A Multi-View Story.

It’s been awhile since I posted anything about IKEA. Not because I am anti IKEA, just because I hadn’t found anything new and interesting about IKEA lately. Today, I found IKEA  In the Kitchen, an interactive microsite created by Instinct/BBDO  for IKEA Russia.

The video is pretty self explanatory, but basically this is a multi-view site that lets users experience the kitchen from different view points and paths. You get to experience the Kitchen from the view point of every character in the story. This site grabbed more than 540,000 page views with click-throughs to the kitchen solutions of the IKEA Russia site.

Nicely done folks. Clever, original, fun, this is why IKEA is so successful with their web promotions.

The Fades, Animated QR Code.

If you are into the whole QR code thing, you probably have noticed that everyone you have seen is static. Red Bee Media has created an animated QR Code for “The Fades” showing on BBC 3 in the UK. The QR code allows for both live action footage and animation before closing on the final image. What is cool is you can scan the code at anytime the animation is playing and be taken directly to a microsite promoting the show.
