2019 Election Campaign Support

In December we were asked by Topham Guerin (TG) to assist with The Conservatives’ election campaign.

Based in New Zealand, TG delivers world-leading advisory and digital services. We had been assisting them with some of their UK activity earlier in the year  – supporting with live streaming for the leadership hustings.  When the election came around we were enlisted to support in delivering the party’s out-of-home and online advertising output.

This was a fascinating campaign to be involved with, we gained real-world experience and understanding in how a successful political campaign picks its targets and messages to them for effect. When we joined there was an existing strategy in motion already. We helped deliver the digital-out-of-home output for that strategy, supported on google search and programmatic, and we delivered simple metrics to give TG a read on how social advertising output was generating engagement within particular seats and audience groups, which informed subsequent output.

We extend our gratitude to Ben and Sean for inviting us to help them deliver the campaign and look forward to working with them again in the future.

Stay Apart. Game Together.

“We’re looking to brands to promote a sense of well-being and positivity across the country, to give a shot in the arm to the general public as they begin to venture back out of home, making people feel good about themselves and, in turn your brand.”

Proposed Idea:

The electronic billboards are all connected together and scattered through London. Facing the billboard, street level, is a scannable QR code that enables anyone with a smartphone to control the billboard, using the small screen as a remote controller for the game that will be played on it. The billboard then matches the player to another, who may be connecting from any other billboard. In places where it is impossible to install a QR code, taking a picture of the billboard itself opens the webapp where the virtual controller is. Two players are then thrust into a quick paced arcade game, where the only form of communication is via emotes and emojis. Think Pong, but across the city, across people, crossing boundaries.

Platform’s Billboard Strategy:

During lockdown and these unprecedented times, we have all found ourselves with something we have never had before. Time, to enjoy, to entertain ourselves, and find purpose. But after a couple of months, and days that just feel like the one before (the week becomes 3 days long: yesterday, today, and tomorrow), after having been through all of Netflix’s most obscure movies, everyone has had that itch to get out of the house, it’s just in our nature. In the new normal however, this is not to be taken lightly. Life is actually starting to feel more and more like the video games we fell back in love with during our time in confinement – it’s stressful, dangers are lurking, London becomes a map, the tube level is scary.

So, there is nothing better than to get a chance to reload. To live in a danger-free, but challenge-full world of online gaming. And when you are out, you can still use those newly honed playful skills, with our interactive billboards to have fun, safely, but most importantly connect with one another from across the city. And if you want to get closer, and challenge each other safely, you can still make your way to Platform, the safest venue to eat, drink and partake in some social gaming.

Karma Kitchen Interview Series

Karma Kitchen are a family run set of commercial kitchens, co-working space and storage in Hackney – designed for people with food & drinks businesses. They build, equip and manage the spaces, so that their tenants have everything they need to run a successful catering business directly from their space.

We were approached by them and asked to film a series of interviews with their tenants on their stories, and why they love using the space. We worked with Karma Kitchen to tailor make a set of open questions designed to get the tenants talking about content that would resonate well with their existing audience. The team then filmed and edited each interview, providing them with several video formats, perfect for sharing on multiple social channels on both desktop and mobile.

Magdalena presents SHADOWS

The Hamburg native DJ Magdalena, one of the founding forces of Diynamic Music record label, Brings her Ibiza party brand ‘Shadows’ Global. This year Magdalena has made strides bringing Shadows International. First, it was a massive Tulum edition to close out Sonorous Festival, now we’re onto the next step, Mainland Europe. Shadows will be doing two separate mini-tours of Berlin, Zurich, and Hamburg in both February and March. Magdalena will be hosting joined by Francesca Lombardo for February and La Fleur in March.

Rave of Thrones

The Rave of Thrones team asked us to handle their social pages, event page and media spend for their upcoming immersive event at the renowned venue Electric Brixton. Winter is coming, and revellers can expect a faux banquet hall, white walkers, sword fights and even Hodor (Kristian Nairn) on the decks. Things kicked off to a great start, we built a bespoke media plan and a social strategy, and news of the event was picked up by major news outlets. We’re now managing their media spend as well as daily content on all socials. We here at E1MA are all really excited to see this event grow into what has the potential to be a UK wide tour – and we can’t wait for the first night in Brixton!

We Are FSTVL 2019 Lineup Announcement

Yesterday we assisted We Are FSTVL with their first 2019 lineup phase announcement. We worked with the client to develop a live streamed countdown to the announcement on Facebook, and attached a Facebook Messenger bot to respond to competition entrants. Those entrants were then contacted about on-sales. We were incredibly pleased with the results across the board, and as ever it’s a privilege to work with the We Are team, always giving us creative freedom to bring these kinds of ideas to the table and see them through from beginning to end.

Maceo Plex & Mosaic

Maceo Plex’s events brand Mosaic brought us on board while we were still under the Listen Up umbrella over 2 years ago, but we’ve continued to assist on digital marketing for the brand since we moved over to our new home. We love working with the team, who consistently put on incredibly well produced and inventive events across the globe, the most recent being at Gashouder during Amsterdam Dance Event. We also worked on Maceo Plex’s ’Solar’ album release in 2017. We look forward to more work with the team in the future!

Camden Oktoberfest

This year Camden Oktoberfest tasked E1MA with their digital marketing on the 3rd instalment of their annual event. For this year’s Oktoberfest they went for a 2-day event in a much larger venue, we were tasked with creating a media plan, handling all posts, ad spend resulting in two sold-out shows! The events themselves were hugely popular with many local live acts, great selection of import beer…. and some very happy crowds.
