A social media love lock

With the iconic Nescafe ‘Red Mug’ at the core of this campaign, fans were challenged to connect through social media and unlock special pad-locks to score a mug and a free cup of coffee. Modelled around famous love lock bridges like the Pont de l’Archevêché, the mugs were locked up along walkways, bridges and parks. This social installation from the brand is another great example of what can be done with social media, offline.

It’s still windy in here

Look familiar? In What Next? Issue 199, we raved about Apotek’s extraordinary use of out-of-home media. Now, the same technology and concept has been replicated in an effort to raise awareness for the Swedish Childhood Cancer Foundation. It is still a truly inspiring display, with an extra attention-grabbing element adding a bit of shock value.
