Hyundai FIFA World Cup Campaign

2014 | Innocean USA

Project Summary

Elevate Hyundai's brand recognition with a creative campaign across online and offline channels, giving audience members the ability to tap into the soccer community, find like-minded fans, and voice their own passion. The website was built on Tumblr, where a steady stream of high-quality World Cup content was strategically published. Soccer fans could enter their location to see where fans of their team would be watching the games in their area, and could view real-time tweets from each location. Users could also participate by creating and sharing their own World Cup memes.
