HP/TeenVogue HauteShot Social App
When HP and TeenVogue teamed up for a series of pop-up stores, they came to Creative i to develop ideas for engaging teen girls and women both in the store and on the web.
Enter the HP/TeenVogue HauteShot, a social app that enables users to upload pictures of themselves for placement on the cover of TeenVogue.
In store, makeup artists prepared the “stars” for their photo shoot. The images were placed on customized magazine covers, which were then printed out as souvenirs on HP printers.
On the web, users could upload their photos and customize their covers, and then share the resulting image with their social networks.
WhiteHat Security Brand Awareness Launch
Sure, your networks and PCs are safe. But what about your website?

A website redesign elevated the brand and gave it a powerful new voice. Print wraps in CIO magazine bring the brandís value proposition to life. And a series of irreverent banner ads appearing on InformationWeek.com, CIO.com, NetworkWorld.com, and many other outlets significantly increased the clientís share of voice. And helped spread the word that when it comes to website attacks, itís WhiteHat to the rescue.
