ING DIRECT takes over Edmonton Subway Station to showcase how little savings
can add up to big things
TORONTO, Aug. 26, 2013 /CNW/ - A picture is worth a thousand words, but ING
DIRECT took that concept even further using thousands of coffee cups to
demonstrate to Edmontonians that cutting back on daily indulgences can lead to
achieving larger savings goals. To best illustrate that "you get what you save
for", ING DIRECT built a life-size car showing what spending on a popular
morning staple, such as coffee, can add up to over time.
The installation was a joint effort between ING DIRECT and several
Toronto-based agencies. The creative idea was developed by john st. with media
buying handled by Initiative. Fourth Wall Media (the experiential marketing
division of PATTISON Outdoor Advertising) handled production of the car.
The installation will live in the bustling Churchill Subway Station in
Edmonton for nearly four weeks from August 12( )until September 8. Commuters
are challenged to guess the amount of cups used to create the showpiece and
submit their answers through Twitter(®) and Instagram(®) using the hashtag
#getwhatyousavefor for the chance to win $5,000.
Following a month of research and development, the car took shape over a span
of three labour-intensive days before commuters' eyes. The unique installation
is accompanied by a station domination that will drive passersby to the
creative centrepiece with stair raisers, posters, floor vinyl and wall murals.
Transit and bus shelter ads will also appear nationwide.
All coffee cups used were made from post-consumer recycled material and unused
cups from the installation planning will be donated to The Calgary Drop-In &
Rehab Center following the campaign.
