Best Mobile Rich Media Online Campaign, Best Of Show Rich Media Online Campaign

Mobile harassment is a growing problem among teenagers, so LG asked us to create a campaign that would educate teens about the dangers of mobile bullying and sexting. The Give It A Ponder campaign used James Lipton and the iconic motion of stroking one’s beard to spread the message of thinking before texting. This integrated campaign was seen on TV, cinema, print and online. We even created new technology, the first animated video chat effect with facial recognition. Give It A Ponder has already made its way into teen pop culture vernacular, garnering 153 million media impressions in 167 countries.
