packaging + web: Pace Farm Madagascar Promo

Blog, Print, Web

Busy busy! Lots happening on the freelance desk. Pace Farm, a previous client of ours, are running a new family competition/promo in conjunction with the upcoming Dreamworks animation, Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted! and Dreamworld on the Gold Coast. They’re giving away 3 family holidays to Dreamworld, movie tickets and more.

The promotion packs hit stores a few weeks ago and look really great! Check them out at the supermarket and pick up a promo pack yourself  – then head online and enter the competition! [assuming you aren’t in my immediate family… sorry Mum!]Promotional Home Page

Previously we’ve come into these promotions at the website/online competition entry stage, and this time Pace Farm asked us to do the promotional packaging design as well! We handled a lot of back and forth getting the design just right to suit all the stakeholders and meet the legal requirements for the copyright holders and the relevant government bodies.

The website design includes promo material from Dreamworks for the Madagascar 3 movie and from Dreamworld. It also includes a secure competition entry page built on the client’s server. We made use of Google Webfonts for better SEO and content visibility, as well as tracking the whole thing with Google Analytics to measure the effectiveness of the design and provide meaningful feedback.

website design: Pace Farm Eggs

Pace Farm website header

What kept us busy over the summer, you might be wondering? Well, it wasn’t all days at the beach and summer road trips – instead James Kirsop and I were working on a promotional website for Pace Farm Eggs, an Australian family-owned egg company.

They ran a competition from February to April 2011 as a cross-promotion with Universal Studios, Illumination Entertainment and their Easter family movie release, ‘HOP‘, and they wanted an engaging new homepage to complement their online competition entry form.

The promotion was entered by purchasing a pack of specially marked eggs, and then entering online through a secure entry form, which randomly generated 100 instant winners of family movie passes, and stored the entrant’s details for the major prize draw – 7 family farmstays!

Entry Form Page

It was considerably successful – there were more than 6,000 visits to the website over the competition period and more than 3,000 people entered the competition – surpassing our client’s expectations for the website.

We also included content from Universal – a plot synopsis for the movie, colouring-in pages, link to the official HOP movie website, a trailer and more, to tie into the promotion. Aren’t the characters from the movie cute! The home page also had links to existing Pace Farm website content like kid-friendly recipes and craft ideas, and a header link let visitors go straight to the old homepage if they so desired.

Overall, a success! Happy clients, and a technically complex website put together by James Kirsop, myself and Gareth Parker (ASP.Net coding). We were overwhelmed by the responses and so excited to see that the competition was so successful.
