Battery Wins Gold For Best Campaign At The 2016 PromaxBDA Game Marketing Awards
Creative Agency Honored For Launch of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s LEGO Dimensions
- Wednesday, Jun. 1, 2016
Battery, the fast-growing, award-winning independent creative agency based in Hollywood, is a Gold winner for Outstanding Overall Marketing Campaign - Rated 'E' games - at PromaxBDA’s 2016 Game Marketing Awards. The top category prize at the prestigious event honors Battery’s work promoting the launch of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment’s LEGO Dimensions.
Championing the game as an imagination expanding experience for kids of all ages, Battery created the tagline “You’re Gonna Need a Bigger Imagination.” Battery developed a global multiplatform launch challenging kids and adults alike to combine brain, brawn and horsepower to achieve what no single hero, no matter how powerful, can achieve.
“The campaign puts the focus on kids not the product,” said Philip Khosid, Battery’s Chief Creative Officer. “It empowers them to realize all of their imaginations, to build their worlds as they want, giving them ultimate control through their imagination. An imagination so big that not even their house could contain it.”
The campaign kicked off last Summer with an out-of-home takeover of San Diego’s Hard Rock Hotel during Comic-Con 2015, and then rolled out across multiplatform media through the Fall of that year. The “Endless Awesome” Campaign features stars from the LEGO universe and The LEGO movie, including The Simpsons, Batman and Scooby Doo.
The campaign features launch trailers, TV spots, OOH and experiential:
