So we have all had our fair share of them, those ubiquitous banner ads that we find scattered around a website, seemingly unrelated to the website itself. The seasoned designer will choose advertising well that fits in with the sites content, but all to often we find pages filled with banner exchange programs in the

Following on from our announcement of the 1st ever Silverlight ad on MSN UK last week , I wanted to showcase another innovative use of technology to reach audiences while they play games online. Targeting 15-34 year old male demographic, the advertising agency Carat recently worked with Microsoft Advertising to display ads inside the Pro Evo Soccer 10 game to inform gamers when ESPN would be screening their live coverage. Advertising in games is a growing industry as JJ Richards, the GM for Massive, wrote last October .

Swedish magazine T-Post , distributed as a T-shirt ( yes, check it out ), has released an issue where the t-shirt itself becomes a “paper rock scissors” game to play against. A bit creepy, but also interesting as it keeps on unveiling new ways of interacting with physical products, as in the Adidas’ sneakers augmented reality thing .

Paper, rock and scissors
Firstborn has recently launched a simple yet effective digital experience to explain common misconception about well-being and insurances in the US. It’s nothing more, nothing less than a promo for an insurance company called Aflac, so it’s good to see it’s not the usual boring corporate website you would expect for such a client. What I really like is the communication approach that starts with the “attract and engage” phase.

From Japan another great example of digital communication and a clear demonstration that the online media and online commerce are (more than) ready to support any brand or product (if the communication is done in the right way). Today we talk about dogs, fashion and ecommerce. The brand is called Free Stitch and produces clothing for small dogs

How hard is to engage people to create what is called “user generated content”. So many try, only a few accomplish, as in this simple yet brilliant campaign coming from AKQA London for the launch of the new Panasonic Lumix ZX1 camera, featuring an 8x optical zoom. With some sculptures distributed all along several places, a british object each of them but eight times larger than its original size, the whole press coverage drove people to a Facebook fan page, Panasonic 8xLife , where users could submit their own creations , related to perspective (as playing with the powerful zoom feature and in order to win a trip yo the 2010 Vancouver Olympic Winter Games), to be stored at some galleries that are pure joy and fun to watch.

Nike True City is a really cool iPhone app where you can find some info about different european cities, provided by some “Nike experts”, but leaving it open for you to update the content with your own suggestions of what a “true city” should be. Aditionally the app reveals where new Nike events are taking place, where there are secret QR-codes in each city (i love they include even a QR-Code reader inside the application) or even new Nike products to be launched, creating a really interesting community where you can be rewarded on your own or by sharing to the rest of users

So Day 1 is over here at CES in Las Vegas . Steve Ballmer, Microsoft’s CEO, has just stepped off stage after his keynote in which he talked about the successes of 2009 – the Windows 7 launch, Zune HD and the unleashing of our new decision engine – Bing – onto the world. There were some great demos of new PCs, including the HP Slate which will be available later this year, plus some fabulous updates for Xbox, Mediaroom and news of the HTC HD2 Windows Phone which Darren Huston, the Head of our Consumer & Online Services Division was showing me as I sat next to him Tweeting live from the event !

This one is a one from us that we did last autumn for Rexona Teens, a deodorant for teenagers that, being always the same product, changes its tagline every year, “Dance and teens”, “Love and teens” or, in this case “Fans and teens”. To support this last one we created a little promo using a Facebook app called “Your line of fans” , that allows you to show if you’re a better fan than others, and you’re required to create the longest line to support your favorite artist, inviting your friends to be formed in your line (and then the friends of your friends), so you could use the line to try it to be the longest and also to meet new friends that share with you the same interest in that artist.
