Sun, rain and storm
driving a campaign
Let’s talk about the weather
With this weather campaign, we made sure users never get caught out wearing the wrong clothes in the rain again. We integrated a weather API into DoubleClick’s dynamic feed and used meteorological and geo-location data to generate relevant messages, suggesting appropriate outfits based on the current weather.
The ads display relevant products while speaking directly to the audience about what the weather is like, right at that moment, in their city.
Rain or shine,
always dressed for the occasion
What data signals did we use?
Our team created a prototype that connects to the Open Weather Map’s API and gets updates every four hours. We also used geolocation data for key cities in Italy, Spain, France and Germany.
Geolocation, temperature, sky conditions, wind velocity, thunderstorms
Sun or storm, looking smart is so Berlin
Blue-sky thinking for the look & feel
Our creative team’s goal was to create fun, punchy copy to go with each weather type. We decided early on in the design process to go for an editorial style. Weather reports are something you might read in your daily newspaper, so we felt this was the right look and feel for the project. The final creative combines weather-related animation with elegant typography and fashion photography.
