The Challenge

Making classic entertainment stand out

The opportunities for entertainment are endless, and Donald Duck & Co was challenged by a highly competitive market. Even though the stories are beloved by many, the client wished to reignite the joy of reading Donald Duck & Co books and magazines.

The Solution

Encouraging reader engagement through interactive Story Ads

To captivate the readers’ attention, s360 rethought the client’s creatives. The Creative Performance team revamped the creatives by transforming the classic, beloved single comic magazine into animations that invite the reader to engage. The comic strips were sliced into smaller sections, where the reader unravels the comic strip bit by bit with each click on the story. The animated creatives appeal directly to the reader’s curiosity and nostalgia, and by making the Story Ads interactive, it encourages the reader to engage with the ads by means of curiosity.

“The core message we desire to associate with Donald Duck & Co is the joy of reading. In collaboration with s360 and Hans Fredrik, they showed great initiative and understanding of the essence of Donald Duck & Co. Their initiative and production of a great concept, with a seamless execution, strengthened our brand and supported our conversion ads on other platforms.”
