We had to find a way to get through to them, so that they would actually listen to the Kontor release. Just like every good DJ knows - there's a unique way to get your audience - real vinyl. So that was what we would send the creative directors. No CD, MP3 or USB - just good-old fashioned RPM. As cool as vinyl might be, the problem is, few creative directors own a turntable anymore. So we - literally - put a spin on things. Together with the vinyl disc, we mailed them a 'turntable' - made from the envelope. Kontor, the world's biggest dance-music label, wanted to promote the new Boris Dlugosch release to the advertising industry. But they were targeting the world's most un-impressible audience: agency creative directors. These guys either pass promo CDs onto their secretaries or, more often, just bin them. Our audience just had to flip the envelope, put the disc on the 'turntable', activate the QR code with their phone, place it over the record and listen to the new track. Plus, they could also play other tracks, or contact Kontor via the connect icon. To reach this very demanding audience required a real standout idea, that truly reflected the nature of the business and product. The combination of smart modern technology with retro cool technology achieved this beautifully and struck a real chord with creative directors. No downloading. No fuzz. Just analogue fun with a digital device. Read Less
