Briefed to devise and execute an online and experiential marketing strategy to launch the remastered Nokia 8110, we had to cut through to a young audience already saturated by the latest smartphone technology.

We identified two trends in current youth culture relevant to Nokia the 8110: an appetite for simpler tech, and the 90’s revival aesthetic.

We designed and built a tourable set to pay homage to Nokia’s 90’s heritage and style, while celebrating the phones simpler tech, it’s iconic banana association and everyone’s favourite game, Snake.

In a compact set build we included a 3D GIF booth, a socially powered 90’s vending machine, a snake game area and a POS.

Touring – London, Bristol, Manchester and Liverpool, each event was kick started with a street art guerrilla marketing activity and a geo targeted teaser Instagram campaign.
