I was brought in to spearhead the creation of a series of bespoke ads for Abbott's Pedialyte.
I ran a workshop demonstrating the business impact on investing on end-user experience: playfulness, attention to detail, and fast loading times. I worked closely with their creative team to execute playful campaign with extremely high performing animated ads that were hand-optimised for a wide range of screen sizes.
From the subtle squish on the germs' impacts to the expanding shadows that follow their downwards trajectory – the handcrafted animations were painstakingly created in Google Web Designer to evoke a sense of playfulness and believability.
Optimised for Conversion
Each animated element was exported in a specifically chosen and manually compressed image format to meet the exacting demands of mobile friendly ads without sacrificing details in any of the illustrations or product shots. From PNG Posterization, to careful JPEG colour optimisation, to simplifying SVG paths – no stone was left unturned to create lightning fast load times and optimise for conversions.
A Multi-Screen Narrative
We went beyond adapting the layout for a variety of screen sizes to adapting the narrative of the message itself. Our research on young mothers demo concluded that mobile users were more ready to buy (converting at rates up to 3X desktop) whereas desktop users are typically in a research frame of mind. As a result, we adapted both the CTA messaging and landing pages to optimise for each platform and form factor.
A ballet of carefully orchestrated engagement best practices resulting in click-throughs and subsequent conversion rates that 1.5 Xed their previous top performers.
