A red cube at Place des Arts

PR event that blends art and KIA

On September 23 and 24 a larger-than-life, pop-up installation will be on display at La Place des Arts. The 30-by-30 foot Red Cube made of 4 large,10-foot screens is an interactive, branded art experience designed to engage and surprise visitors. Commissioned by Kia to celebrate its award-winning style and craftsmanship, visitors will be drawn in to see what’s inside. The collective power of the group will bring the interior of the Red Cube to life, unleashing by a dynamic technological display featuring projection mapping.

Kia Motors reached historic new heights when J.D. Power recognized it as the highest scoring nameplate in its 2016 Initial Quality Study (IQS) out of all 33 makes in the U.S. marking the first time in 27 years that a non-premium brand has topped the rankings.

Having transformed into an industry leader in design, quality and technology, the Red Cube campaign builds on Kia’s platform of the Power to Surprise. Delivering on its promise to be unexpected, a marketing teaser campaign has been developed to build excitement for the Red Cube including wildposting clues and a microsite theredcube.ca / lecuberouge.ca. This activation is just the start of a Red Cube program that will make its way into a TV commercial, the auto show circuit, special events and dealer spaces.

The concept was developed by Innocean Worldwide Canada, Kia Canada’s agency of record. Innocean opened a Montreal office earlier in the year to increase presence in the Quebec market.

Uncle Ben’s food truck challenge

Montréal PR event of culinary proportions.

Is there a better way to launch a new product in Montreal than hosting the first food truck challenge in the province?

Joannie Rochette chills with the press.

Media event with Olympic star

If there were such things as «PR dream teams» Joannie Rochette (former figure skating champion) and Almond Breeze would certainly be THE champions in Québec. The choice of a spokesperson for a brand should neither be too on-the-nose nor too bizarre. Somewhere in the middle is where consumers are intrigued. They want to reconcile how this is working—that engages them. Joannie Rochette was such a perfect pairing for Almond Breeze on the Quebec market. With over 25 interviews in a day…It felt like the Olympics all over again:)
