Paramount
Anchorman 2 project
Anchorman 2

Paramount Pictures International tapped Zemoga to help them promote the international release of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, because... well, this movie is kind of a big deal. And what better way to create brand awareness and encourage participation than by creating an online portal that invites (via a "Breaking News" alert from Ron Burgundy himself) fans to submit an audition video to join Ron's news crew! Each week, the most majestic of audition videos are hand selected and then featured in a highlight reel for the entire world to enjoy.

Paramount Pictures projects
Facebook App

Paramount engaged Zemoga to help promote the release of Star Trek: Into Darkness. We used exclusive short-form videos from the film production to introduce fans in 8 countries worldwide to the new Star Trek movie. A Facebook app framework was also built which was syndicated to multiple, international Facebook pages so localization was easy and seamless. Zemoga created a "release window" through media partnerships to build up anticipation for each video's release.

Website Redesign

Meredith Corporation brought Zemoga on-board for a full re-conceiving and re-design of their Parents.com site. We brought together our specialties in data analysis and creativity by using eye tracking technology to benchmark how users interacted with the old site, determining what the friction points were against a series of prompts. Full responsive design architecture and design was also provided and documented. Our collaborative efforts earned us the "2013 Best Re-launch" from Min/Folio, quite a nod from the leading authority on the publishing industry.

Responsive Homepage Redesign

The force was with our UX Jedi Masters at Zemoga as we redesigned BET.com's homepage - in full responsive web design fashion. A critical part of the process was focus groups and eye tracking sessions conducted with BET fans, ensuring data helped us determine the design that made both clients and fans happy. From there it was all about creating an absolutely BETiful interface and then ensuring users could see it perfectly regardless of browser or device. Traffic's up with more viewers flocking to BET.com for the latest and greatest news on their favorite programming, celeb news and amazing reporting.

Site design, UX and development

This project was a web-based solution for the MPEG4 Conversion that allows AETN administrators and client engineers to process equipment and licenses for several phases of the upgrade program.
The website is supported by a custom Content Management System which provides content and information for visitors of the site. The site includes authentication mechanisms to grant access only to authorized users. This is a prime example of a turn-key tool that provides solutions from experience strategy to design to custom CMS development.

iPad Sales Tool

Zemoga's PADFORCE ONE sales enablement app was recently versioned for Hearst Men’s Group, Esquire magazine was the first of four publications to utilize the platform. The tool was developed to arm sales forces with the most simple yet powerful iPad presentation engine available, and allowing them to access the latest, most up to date content. Reps can create personalized playlists in seconds, make over-the-air file updates, and instantly email content to anyone, at any time.

Proof of Concept

Zemoga helped SeaWorld concept the next evolution of their popular animal cam project into a full-blown online attraction. Zemoga created Up-Close Adventures, a rich user experience that combines live animal HD video within digitally created environments. Visitors are free to snap and share their own pictures, as well as learn more about the animals through information overlays. Custom options for parents and teachers to manage children in the experience adds a layer of education and social interaction.

Busch Gardens
Busch Gardens project

Promotional website

We worked with Busch Gardens to create an overall digital experience promoting their annual Howl-o-Scream event. To maximize awareness, engagement and ticket sales for the event, a multi-channel promotional campaign was developed by Zemoga and our agency partners. In addition to providing a fun and exciting way for the audience to discover "The 13" evils that hosted the event, the Howl-o-Scream digital experience also provided the customer with relevant information regarding dates, hours and info on how to purchase tickets. Short "scare videos" were also produced to drive social conversation and engagement around the event.

Gulfstream

Step onboard our case study of the native iPad application we created for GulfStream's Design and Sales team that configures in rich realtime 3D the interior and exterior of the GulfStream worldclass line of aircraft, including a gyroscopic walkthrough.

Fasten your seatbelts.

Step right on board
Overview
Project
Gulfstream® DesignBook

Imagine a jet aircraft showroom experience rendered on an iPad. Imagine customizing interiors and exteriors in real time and from a first person point of view. Imagine bringing an ultra-high end sales experience to digital life. Stop imagining, and start exploring DESIGN BOOK for Gulfstream by Zemoga.

Client
a Gulfstream jet

Gulfstream needed to bring the luxury jet showroom experience to life in a completely mobile, intuitively customizable, and eminently compelling digital experience. With the help of Zemoga, they not only succeeded, but exceeded our clients high expectations.

Strategy
Creating an innovation design engine

The Gulfstream brand embodies efficiency, luxury, and innovation -- qualities that had to resonate throughout any digital experience we created for the world's foremost aviation company.

So we started by taking apart and then reassembling the Gulfstream showroom experience, where customers are physically escorted through actual plane interiors. Our goal was to not only emulate the sales experience, but improve it by empowering customers to visualize their unique choices.

We succeeded by creating an astonishing first-person, fully customizable, gyroscope-controlled augmented reality showroom experience.

UX
Begin with the end in mind

Gulfstream wanted to reproduce the excitement and engagement of a tour through their physical showrooms.

So we worked backward to not only digitally recreate the experience of an actual walkthrough, but took the opportunity several digital steps further by enabling the user customization of features, colors, textures, and other options both within and outside the aircraft.

The result was a sleek, simple, and elegant conceptual framework that set a solid foundation for the robust layers of the UI, and the astonishing first-person UX built above it.

User Experience sketches
A sales process with amplitude

With a high sensitivity to the fact that GulfStream is the ultimate in luxury brands, we designed and built a crisp, engaging and virtually limitless customizable experience.

Our solution was to create a next generation tool that takes the sales process to another level.

Feautures include an augmented reality experience that allows you to virtually walk through your new jet.

Designers and customers alike can effortlessly tap and drag from one feature category to another, all while maintaining a natural flow throughout the compelling configurator experience.

Design
Elegant utility and functional beauty

The project had an aesthetic sensibility we referred to as "effortless elegance," this notion applies as much to our own methodology as Gulfstream's gorgeous aircraft.

So even though the presentation layer alone manipulates and compiles over 40,000 images, the app captures the Gulfstream spirit of confidence, simplicity, and efficiency.

Users are encouraged to perform a host of complex functions, yet all within a UX that remains easy-to-use, completely intuitive, and uncannily organic.

The matrix is everywhere and needs lots of bandwidth

Creating an augmented reality experience that tops the original isn't easy.

Four gigabytes of raw data fed dynamically into more than 30 images projected per second.

And you thought building an actual private luxury jet was tough!

The Zemoga UI team sweat all the details, and somehow managed to push both native and Web-based tech to the absolute limit.

By increasing runtime performance as much as 600% we were able to transform an iPad into a virtual showroom, assembled in real time right in front of the user's eyes.

And we've only just gotten started...

Don't just take our word for it

The application debuted at the NBAA (literally the trade show for the jetset) in October 2012 to overwhelming praise and delight

Hailed by Tray Crow, Gulfstream's director of interior design as a powerful sales tool due to it's ability "...to show clients their vision, real time, right in front of them".

Zemoga has partnered with Kmart, one of the nation's largest retailers, for over five years. We've designed and developed compelling digital eCommerce experiences grounded in smart strategy, consistently exceeding expectations.

The eminently successful relationship led to Zemoga's most recent project, the Kreature Kreator, a Halloween gaming app that encouraged customers to customize and share their own Kmart costumes for the holiday.

By creating an online destination that mom wants to visit with her kids, Kmart promotes family bonding (while also reinforcing the quality, style and value she’s come to expect from Kmart).

It also lets her share her experiences with other Moms, taking pride in the engagement she’s created for her kids and swapping ideas on how to keep the party going all year long -- with the help of Kmart products.

FROM ANALOG TO DIGITAL THEN BACK AGAIN

We started with a selection of 90 retail Kmart costumes, and created an entirely new illustrated and digitally rendered style for them.

Each simulation had to match perfectly with all the characters and accessories, and help drive sales of the actual costumes they represented.

Kmart Outdoor and Seasonal team's first digital foray into a dedicated social engagement program was a huge success.

Thousands of bloggers embedded the widget version of the Kreator in their site, driving thousands of new "Halloween minded" visitors into the Kmart website's seasonal section.

Visitors created an amazing variety of personalized Kreatures shared with friends across Facebook and Sear's Shop Your Way Rewards program. Fans voted for their favorite Kreatures and the top Kreators were awarded with prizes.

Kmart has enjoyed record seasonal sales, with multichannel engagement strategies including the Kreature Kreator integral to their integrated campaign tactics.

Toyota

Avalon, Toyota's flagship sedan, was redesigned for the first time in 9 years -- so needed a "hand-raiser" marketing campaign equally innovative, resonant, and exciting. Zemoga drove that process to stellar results three months before the cars even hit the showroom floor, and six months before any advertising.

"The Avalon Experience" raises hands across America for Toyota's latest redesign with multichannel digital resonance -- hop aboard!

Avalon's redesign was nine years in the making, so our market conditioning campaign had to be equally special. Set to deliver 50,000 hand raisers in six month, we hit that goal in six weeks -- talk about marketing overdrive!

Strategy
Exclusive clients demand exclusivity

Avalon drivers aren't interested in sharing their feelings about a brand, in so much as experiencing an internal projection of their self-worth. So our digital engagement had to be worthy of their time, compelling them to revisit a brand they'd come to love for nine unchanged years.
