Nokia OVI Maps
| XTP, DOOH
To coincide with a worldwide marketing push for the new OVI maps, Nokia launched a DOOH campaign in Brazil and Saudi Arabia. The campaign was adapted from print artwork and followed an arrow navigating through a cityscape before building into the final frame. Creative was specifically tailored to each market, featuring a local city map within the ‘hero’ handset as well as showcasing the most popular handsets from each region.
Working with the original print assets Grand Visual developed the East West concept using CGI elements, 3D modeling and live action footage. The creative starts under the ocean and pans upwards in the direction of thousands of tiny Tiger Beer bottles which enter the main bottle as it floats above the ocean. West of the bottle is a European cityscape in a photographic style, East is an Asian city with the sea animated in the style Hokusai and Hiroshige. For the DEP execution the creative was split across the two sides of the escalators – a further play on the East meets West concept.
