About the Project
Space Chimp Media was tasked with aiding the launch of V 5 of the new AP mobile app. Since the app was going to be one of the most innovative news apps to hit the market it was only fitting we added a little innovation to the marketing campaign. Our team reached out to big time influencers to get the word out with a number of successes and call backs from guys like Robert Scoble. If that wasn’t enough we concepted and created the AP Mobile booth at SXSW in conjunction with a national ad campaign.
How we Did It
