The more serenades were shared, the more Don Cupido got his hopes back that true love still existed. The site was a heartfelt tribute to Latin culture in America, referencing old-style Mexican cantinas, and using hand-drawn graphics and rustic accents to bring Don Cupido’s playful character to life in a bold, vibrant and loving way.

RAPP wanted to showcase its digital capabilities during Valentine’s Day. So we were tasked with finding a fun way to do it.

The more serenades were shared, the more Don Cupido got his hopes back that true love still existed.
