H-E-B

If you’ve ever tailgated before a University of Texas home football game, you know that H-E-B is everywhere. But what about the families of fans who tailgate from home? Is there a way for H-E-B to own that experience, as well? Prior to the 2017 college football season, Studio created the H-E-B Home Tailgate Headquarters Contest. We asked Austin to send in their best home tailgate photos, then had H-E-B social followers vote for their favorites. The winners won a gift card to stock their home tailgate experience, a visit from an H-E-B chef, and their home tailgate party captured on film and posted to Facebook. It was a win-win for both H-E-B and their adoring fans.

Precision Camera

Precision Camera & Video came to us with three goals: (1) Promote their 40th anniversary, (2) Increase traffic and engagement across their social sites, and (3) Increase traffic to their annual Expo. We created the Precision Camera ‘Capturing Austin’ campaign, a two-week scavenger hunt and social media blitz. Each day for 14 days leading up the the Expo, we tweeted an Austin landmark location where a Precision Camera employee was waiting. In order to win fabulous prizes, our audience was asked to be the first to find the employee and mention the campaign by name. The Capturing Austin campaign blew up, resulting in record traffic to, and engagement on, Precision Camera Facebook, Twitter and YouTube destinations. The campaign was so successful that it led to coverage on KEYE-TV, a line out the door prior at the Expo, and our client calling it the most successful promotional campaign in her five years at the company.

City of Cedar Park

The City of Cedar Park issued an RFP, looking for an agency to promote their water conservation program. We came up with a memorable tagline and hashtag, promoting the awareness campaign on digital and social channels, events, and public relations. The seven-month campaign delivered 1.4 million impressions in Cedar Park, 5,000 sessions to the microsite we created, 3,500 sessions to Facebook, and 70 percent of the traffic to the City of Cedar Park website. Our ‘Thank You’ video on Facebook has more than 45,000 views.

 

Sungard

It would have been easy to take the low and obvious road when writing about subject matter as mundane as disaster recovery and cloud computing. But that’s not how we roll. For Sungard, we asked, “What if the disaster we’re the zombie apocalypse?” Our approach created significant awareness of Sungard’s DR and Cloud offerings and also snatched a handful of awards, proving that there you can make anything fun if you put your creative mind to it.

Freescale

Freescale, now NXP, needed a clever way to pitch their latest flexible core-agnostic middleware architecture (QorIQ, aka “Core I.Q.”), which enables engineers to build on both hardware and software in tandem, greatly simplifying the development process. Research revealed that our core audience were IT geeks who love inventing new ways to solve problems. Our goal was to show how Freescale’s new QorIQ solution gives them an edge – a “Life Hack” – that greatly simplifies work and life.
