Resolution Media & INNOCEAN win best in show at Digiday Sammy / Mobi Awards

Digiday award

Resolution Media took home Best in Show for Digiday’s Sammy Awards for its Lowe’s “Fix in Six” Vine campaign.

For the Lowe’s campaign, Resolution produced weekly Vines that highlighted quick home improvement tips, like how to keep your jack-o-lantern burning bright throughout October. The snappy Vines resonated strongly with consumers, earning the home improvement retailer tens of millions of impressions and thousands of social mentions, despite the modest budget.

INNOCEAN USA, meanwhile, snagged Best In Show at Digiday’s Mobi Awards for “The Walking Dead Chop Shop App for Hyundai Motor America.”

Hyundai began a product placement integration with AMC’s hit show The Walking Dead back in the fall of 2011, but INNOCEAN’s Chop Shop App took that to the next level, prompting the show’s fanatical fanbase to directly engage with Hyundai vehicles in the Walking Dead universe. Working with Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman, INNOCEAN developed the Chop Shop App, enabling Walking Dead fans to create their Hyundai zombie survival machines from their iOS or Android devices. The app captured fans’ attention, garnering over 450,000 downloads and counting — and driving a 150 percent traffic increase over three months.


Another big winner at Digiday’s Sammy / Mobi Awards was RG/A, which won Best Branded Viral Video, Best Socialized Business, Best Integrated Mobile/Cross Media Campaign, Best Mobile/Social Integrated Campaign and Best Mobile Creative (across its London, New York and Los Angeles offices).

With the rise of the chief AI officer, it’s time to examine ‘czar’ culture

Even if it’s a familiar pattern — hot new thing, new C-Suite exec to tackle said thing, a few years go by and that C-Suite position no longer exists as everyone is now doing said thing (or it was a fad that has since faded away) — does it make sense for businesses to continue to appoint new czars with every new trend?
