DIGITAL CAMPAIGN OF THE YEAR / World's Tastiest Coupon
Who says a coupon ad can't be creative? To promote Day of the Dozens (12/12), the World’s Tastiest Coupon was an actual scannable barcode, made of actual doughnut glaze using our iconic glaze waterfall.

Digital Campaign of the Year—Gold
Krispy Kreme #Deflategate
Krispy Kreme's largest competitor, Dunkin' Donuts, sponsors the New England Patriots. With the Deflategate controversy brewing, we took to the field with this concept and the Twitter-verse ran with it.
Within 24 hours:
• @krispykreme trended in Boston, New York, Pittsburgh, Atlanta and Seattle
• Social statistics on key channels were among the highest for the brand to date
• Re-tweeted by ESPN's Darren Rovell and Erin Andrews to their combined 3.3 million followers
Upgraded Krispy Kreme mobile app from rudimentary Hot Light identifier to robust enterprise Loyalty Rewards program

FWA Mobile Site of the Day
International Talk Like A Pirate Day is one of Krispy Kreme’s most popular days. The idea is simple: talk like a pirate and get a free doughnut. Or, dress like a pirate and get a free dozen of them.
This innovative mobile-first campaign I helped our agency partner bring to life sold shiploads of doughnuts and was recognized for both creativity and effectiveness.
Every component of the campaign—a video series, 11 wearable animated gifs, a personalized Pirate Name generator, a Facebook event page, email campaign and social posts—was designed to drive engagement and be easily shared with friends on social networks.
The campaign was also the pioneer of a new Snapchat feature: the branded filter.
The creative got plenty of press in national media such as USA Today and Time, and industry trades Mobile Marketer, Mobile Commerce Daily, Advertising Age's Creativity and Mediapost.

There is just ... something ... about walking into a room with a box of Krispy Kreme doughnuts: people stop what they're doing, their eyes light up, the entire energy changes. It's almost magical. It's certainly special.
I wrote the brand brief then worked with agency partner Baldwin& as they captured these one-of-a-kind moments for this one-of-a-kind brand we called "The Krispy Kreme Effect."

The Effect is real
Record Sales Through Social Video
For the one day of the year when everyone is Irish, Krispy Kreme transformed its iconic Original Glazed doughnut with an apostrophe, a little food coloring, and a simple self-produced video which I conceived, wrote, and directed.
Playing off Chicago’s tradition of turning the Chicago River green, we created a Parade of Doughnuts that achieved 42,214 shares, 5.9 million views, over 67,000 reactions and 18,000+ comments.
It was among the most shared videos for the month on Facebook and sold nearly 2 million doughnuts for a truly record-breaking day.
