Your packaging are a gateway to new digital contents

Packaging is limited in size and content. Legally speaking, your packaging has to include your product’s ingredients and other information about the importer and manufacturer, often on a rather small surface. And with the emergence of interactive media and online services, your packages are expected to contain more and more information to grab the attention. Today more than ever, your packaging plays a key role in your marketing campaigns and need to stand out through its content and its design.

Modern day consumers are curious, attentive, and sensitive to their surroundings. Successful apps like Yuka or QuelCosmetic are the living proof that users expect more transparency in the products they want to buy.

Using augmented reality for your packaging allows you to convey as much information as you’d like to your consumers, all the while creating a unique experience for them as soon as they hold your product in hand.

    Client project: Danone X Playmobil X SnapPress X HighCoData

    In 2018, agriculture and food giant Danone partnered with Playmobil to incite parents and kids alike to purchase their products with an interactive AR campaign. SnapPress was in charge of the design of the campaign, and HighCoDATA was in charge of the creation of the Facebook game displayed over the packaging.

    A campaign rewarded by its European nomination at Nudging for Good Awards, by AIM and BVA

    The goal was to make Danone Bio Kids, a yogurt line for young consumers between the age of 6 and 12, more attractive to their targeted audience. Through augmented reality, parents and kids could scan the yogurt cups and get the chance to win one of 1200 Playmobil toys and learn about the origin of the product.

    Results were tangible and the campaign was a success. Almost 40K clicks were registered, and all 1200 toys were won.
