Results and Effectiveness

As an ambient tactic, Window Pints cost 75% less than equivalent media coverage in traditional out of home media.

Creative Execution

We noticed the majority of office windows downtown have white blinds. By adjusting them to a certain height and simply adding a clear decal of the infamous logo, we could create a visual illusion of a pint of Guinness during the daytime light. These “Window Pints” could live anywhere and everywhere in the downtown core.

Insights, Strategy and the Idea

Guinness was looking for a way to “own” St. Patrick’s Day in the bar & club district without having to pay the hefty outdoor billboard price tag. We created ‘Window Pints’ in office buildings throughout downtown.

The Ambient Advert titled WINDOW PINTS was done by Grey Toronto advertising agency for product: Guinness Beer (brand: Guinness) in Canada. It was released in the May 2013.
