Big events such as CES and IFA are an essential part of the product cycle of an electronic manufacturer. A key component of Hugo&Cat work for Sony is the creation of a product launch page with the main product announcements and highlights of the event.
The aim is to create an immersive experience and help people get a sense of the products while capitalising on the buzz of the event.
Over the years, utilising analytics and A/B testing, I helped developing a format that ensures a very high rate of clickthrough to the Product Pages. And every year the team tries to push the boundaries a little more, making sure that the page is fully integrated with the cross-channels marketing initiatives around the event.
One of the key pieces of work we do for this page is the booth visual. Especially at CES time it is a very delicate operation as the photo crew has to operate invisibly among the bustle that surrounds the preparation of the booth. I was on set during the days before the launch to create these assets. The challenge was that the assets needed extensive photography retouching and timeframes to creation were extremely tight.
