Dive Into Sony’s Project Shiphunt

Monday, April 25th, 2011

Sony Shiphunt

In collaboration with Sony and 180 LA, we launched the website for Project Shiphunt, an ultimate product demo for Sony VAIO which is featured on YouTube’s homepage today.

Sony Shiphunt

The campaign kicked off with Oceans of Treasure, a game-based sweepstakes that lets players dive underwater using Google Ocean’s API and discover buried treasure using Sony VAIO laptops. During the game players learn about the technology and capabilities of the new VAIO laptops, which let you do amazing things like discover sunken ships or launch a rocket into space. Stay tuned for more updates from Project Shiphunt!

GCI 2011

Some of the Hello crew with Loafy.

Over the weekend we attended the Grilled Cheese Invitational (GCI) where Tillamook was the major sponsor again this year. GCI is the largest and craziest grilled cheese cook-off in the country, founded by Tim Walker, a dedicated grilled cheese lover from Los Angeles.

We spent the day hanging out with our friends from Tillamook, the Grilled Cheese Truck and Heidi Gibson from the American Grilled Cheese Kitchen while snacking on grilled cheese sammies. We also watched quirky chefs of all kinds furiously battle to make the best grilled cheese sandwich while others competed in cheese poetry and rap.

Let the cook-off begin!

TaylorMade Golf site

Today we launched the new TaylorMade Golf site, home to the #1 driver on tour. The new site reflects TaylorMade’s leadership in crafting a wide range of products with leading technology and features, including the new R11 and Burner Superfast 2.0 Metalwoods, which lead the way in their new white product lineup. The science behind TaylorMade’s new white products results in various benefits, from eliminating hot spots to providing better contrast and alignment. Made for golfers by golfers, TaylorMade’s products are given the spotlight and become tangible through video, detailed specs and tour pro testimonials, giving users an intuitive understanding of the product lineup. We wanted players to be able to navigate through the site easily and simplify the online experience by putting the most sought after information front and center in a clean and simple design.

TaylorMade Golf site

TaylorMade’s new site has five core features:

• Site Architecture: The latest and greatest products and news are featured prominently on the homepage, leading users to the latest content quickly.

• Products and TaylorMade Tour Pros: Each product and Tour player comes alive on the site with video, detailed specs and testimonials. “What’s in the bag” lets users dive into the specs and details on equipment their favorite tour players are using.

• #1 on Tour: A dedicated feature providing facts and figures behind TaylorMade products, giving context behind their position as the #1 driver in golf and a leader in the golf industry.

• Custom Fitting and Tech: The new site details the technology benefits behind the products and explains the importance of custom fitting for clubs. TaylorMade offers a wide range of fitting options from demo days to performance labs where MATT (Motion Analysis Technology by TaylorMade) is used for a 3D clubfitting experience. Die-hard golfers can also visit the Kingdom for the ultimate clubfitting experience.

• Technology: The site is built in HTML5 with the capability to display Flash modules and can dynamically switch content onto an iPhone or iPad.

Last Friday Sony opened a new store that provides a completely different experience from any of their former stores, centering on interactivity and modularity in their “open” themed space. As one of our clients, Sony’s new store is exciting news to us as they allow people to explore, test out and fully experience each product.

Our favorite attractions were the Cube home theater experience and displays of vinyl toys for testing out every single one of their cameras. Read more about the store and events on the Sony Style blog.
