BRAND_rihanna x samsung
samsung wanted to “redefine the way artists and brands collaborate.”
and Rihanna was gearing up to launch her album, ANTI.
so we combined those two forces and made ANTI the fasted album to go platinum in history.
case study to explain more:
with help from punchdrunk (the Sleep No More gurus) we created something called ANTIdiaRy.
it’s an immersive journey through Rihanna’s entire career.
over the course of several weeks, an interactive narrative led fans through 8 rooms, each representing a chapter of Riri’s life.
in the final room, we dropped her 8th album.
we really got to do it all on this one:
- eight :60 films.
- a teaser at the VMAs.
- Mobile VR experiences (one for each room)
- IRL Installations
- And an instagram scavenger hunt.
3/8 films here: (head to my vimeo to binge them all)
we recreated each room IRL and hid them throughout the country:
and we recreated each room digitally for fans to explore through their phones. (SAMUNG!!!)
they had to decode clues to unlock exclusive content.
