Insights, Strategy & the Idea
In these depressing times, it is important to send a positive message to all the young and old people using the Newspaper. The message “Let’s look up, 2011” was sent with unique way that only newspaper can do. We made SKY as a media with no additional money and material than ordinary newspaper.

Creative Execution
At the beginning of 2011, we published a special issue with the clients which approve this positive message. We reinvented the most primitive Augmented Reality technique from a classic complementary colour afterimage technique. With this new technique, people can see all the ads in the SKY with full colour from the newspaper ads a little differ from usual. We provide a website where people can make the original primitive AR image easily.

Results and Effectiveness
We get the biggest media with a tiny image on the newspaper. The message and images were on the conversation among readers and non-readers, children and parents… We get the insights of the people that The ASAHI Newspaper is still aggressively challenging interesting new media with the technique based on the message. According to a survey, 95% of the 1.7 million subscribing families enjoyed the special issue more than usual. 75% enjoyed almost all ads of the day and made conversation with others.
