Lidl Pop-up Restaurant

To change consumer perception of it’s retail chain, Lidl opened a pop-up restaurant in Sweden called Dill with a mantra “Good food doesn’t have to cost more.” The menus (around $75) were composed exclusively from its products. But there was a big secret, they didn’t tell anyone it was Lidl.

IKEA Monorail Makeover

To celebrate the opening of a new location near Tokyo’s Tachikawa station, IKEA decided to provide an entire monorail with a makeover.  The opening to the monorail came with a sign reading IKEA Party Train and visitors were immediately greeted to a buffet including food and drinks.  The carriages decked out entirely with IKEA furnishings then allowed visitors to interact with the products and fully immerse themselves in the unique showroom.

Burger King Motel

Motels can be seedy places, perfect for that clandestine affair — or maybe a light snack? Burger King New Zealand is promoting its Tender Crisp Chicken Burgers by encouraging people to try them out discreetly, effectively cheating on The Whopper, the best-selling BK Burger.

Enter Motel Burger King, an existing motel on Auckland’s North Shore where rooms feature booths and a table, and completely re branded toiletries, dressing gowns, slippers and stationary. There just aren’t any beds.

Rooms can be booked to try the new Tender Crisp Chicken Burgers via Facebook. If your booking is confirmed, you and three friends get a room. When you arrive, you have to check in via Facebook, and share photos via #motelBK.

Q: How do you showcase a brand used by creatives every second of every day?
A :By showing real time creativity

 

Adobe Logo Remix

Adobe’s Logo Remix project, required creatives and agencies to reinterpret the brand’s famous logo. Goodby Silverstein & Partner’s involvement on the project have seen them do so by creating a physical lights installation with 100 handmade cubes.

The installation represents the community of artists and designers who use adobe software everyday, with each cube correlating to an artist using Adobe software in real time. The installation will now form an intriguing centre-piece in Adobe’s San Francisco office.
