PHD and R/GA launch data-led outdoor campaign for Google’s Pixel 2

R/GA and PHD have collaborated in an outdoor campaign for Google’s Pixel 2 phone, making use of time, location, weather and air-traffic control data to highlight the phone’s camera capabilities.

The announcement:

Google has launched a data-led digital outdoor campaign for Pixel 2 demonstrating the power of the world’s best rated smartphone camera.

The campaign, created in collaboration between R/GA and PHD, leverages various signals including time, location, weather, and even air-traffic control data to show photography captured on Pixel 2 in hyper-relevant ways.

Example executions include references to quokka selfies captured on a Pixel 2 in departure lounges for flights heading to Perth, while Pixel 2’s unlimited storage feature is brought to life in contextually-relevant images of major cities shot by local photographers.

“This is a great example of how we can use context to creatively enhance the relevance of outdoor advertising – and do so with scale,” said PHD group business director, Stephanie Douglas-Neal.

“Contextual outdoor gave us a fantastic opportunity to tailor each execution to a specific time and place,” said R/GA executive creative director, Hamish Stewart.
Working with partners JCDecaux, Adshel, APN and oOh!, the campaign will rotate 30 creative variations, dynamically updating several times per day, across more than 1,300 sites nationally including digital street furniture and panels in domestic and international airports.
