The Hyperfactory dominates mobile marketing

The Hyperfactory dominates mobile marketing category at AIMIA Awards

Auckland, January 22, 2008 The world's most awarded mobile marketing and media company The Hyperfactory has been named a double-finalist in the Best Mobile Advertising or Marketing category at the Australian Interactive Media Industry Association (AIMIA) Awards, to be announced in March.

The Hyperfactory was recognised for two mobile campaigns, both of which have already won several major mobile and marketing awards across the globe.

The Motorola 'Say Goodbye' campaign saw The Hyperfactory pair with Ogilvy Hong Kong to create a groundbreaking interactive campaign at Hong Kong International Airport. It allowed travellers to say goodbye to loved ones via their mobile phones by broadcasting their personal video messages on giant screens around the airport. They could also receive video messages and exclusive content from soccer star David Beckham and Chinese chart-topper Jay Chou direct to their mobile phones.

There were tens of thousands of video interactions between travellers, David Beckham and Jay Chou, and the videos made their way all over the world from phone to phone. In addition to being a huge hit with consumers, the campaign has also won big with the industry, collecting Best In Show accolades at the prestigious Adweek Buzz Awards and OMMA Awards.

The Wellington Zoo 'Augmented Reality' campaign was created in association with Saatchi & Saatchi Wellington and human interface company Hitlab NZ. It featured world-first technology that enabled users to bring a 3D zoo animal to life in the palm of their hands - simply by pointing the camera on their mobile at a print advertisement. The campaign won Best Print at the Adweek Buzz Awards.

Geoffrey Handley, The Hyperfactory Director New Business Asia Pacific, says, "Many of our recent successes have been at international awards ceremonies, so it's great to see some recognition closer to home.

"Mobile marketing is at a tipping point in Australasia right now - we're thrilled that AIMIA has acknowledged The Hyperfactory as being at the forefront of this next digital revolution."
