Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rear Window” opens with the rising of a curtain. This is a tribute to classic theater — a rising curtain has been shorthand for “the show is about to begin” for centuries.

However, something is a little different here. These are not traditional theater curtains, but rather a window curtain; and yet, the message remains the same. Hitchcock is informing the audience, “The show is about to begin.”

This, of course, raises the question as to what kind of show would be watched through a window? The answer is, a voyeuristic one.

No player is the same, but there’s one thing they share in common: passion.

With this in mind, Ubisoft launched an immersive, multichannel campaign to kick off its new ecosystem of player services, Ubisoft Connect. The campaign celebrated the last five years of gaming, personalized for each player, with the goal of viral social shardoing and engagement.

We are emotional beings who THINK we’re rational beings.

What we buy, who we vote for, even who we choose to marry - are primarily emotional, or “feeling-based”, decisions.

When Kaltura – well known provider of live, real-time and on-demand video SaaS solutions to thousands of organizations around the world, engaging hundreds of millions of viewers at home, at work, and at school – was founded in 2006, their founding values were openness, flexibility, and collaboration, as reflected in the company’s logo from the start. As the company has grown and steadily developed a strong global customer base, the core values have remained and served as a guiding light along the way. Recently, the corporate marketing team decided it was time to refresh the brand to reflect the company’s maturity and size, and worked with HR to figure out how to get their entire 500 global employee base excited about the refreshed brand… but somehow “individually.”

  • How does a large organization keep communications feeling personal?
  • How do you maintain a sense of meaningful connection when challenged with distance & distractions now more than ever?
  • How do you ensure every individual employee feels appreciated, when you have thousands of employees to help feel validated and seen?
  • How do you communicate the uniquely tailored information each individual employee needs to know in a manner that is engaging and individually relevant - but, also scalable?
