The 1st campaign in Romania for Pilot Frixion, signed by The Geeks

Advertising, Digital & Media

The Geeks launched the 1st online campaign in Romania for Pilot Frixion, a brand exclusively distributed locally by Dacris. Pilot Frixion is an innovative product, a pen with ink that allows you to write, delete and re-write. The launched online campaign completes the integrated communication campaign that started, in September, on TV and outdoor.

The Geeks developed an online campaign that includes an innovative takeover of the main Romanian video sharing website, Trilulilu, and an online store dedicated to the product.

The takeover is an animation that takes place in the same time with the love story of two young people in a classroom, the perfect opportunity to discretely integrate a product demonstration

Beyond the online, The Geeks created two TV spots Teen Romance and The Crumpled Paper, and also the outdoor campaign that completed the media mix. The media services were insured by Starcom, while the video production was signed by Commitet.

We like to joke and say we developed an online campaign with a TV component. A sure thing is that the product was demanding a media mix to reach to a certain target of young people. This is the reason why Pilot Frixion is present now, simultaneously, on 3 media channels. Strategically speaking, I am glad we chose a direct and descriptive message. We took in consideration the fact that the product is an innovative one and, in this case, the role of the campaign is to be as explicit as possible and, eventually, demonstrative. As the 1st sales results are positive, we can trust that we took the good decisions
