Case Study CIBC

Interactive game directly engages prospects to promote product and increase enrollment.


The Challenge

CIBC wanted to promote their Aventura travel rewards credit card, with an engaging and innovative digital solution that both leveraged their new brand mascot and encouraged enrolment, especially among millennials.

The Solution

We created a simple yet informative interactive online gaming experience starring Percy the Penguin. With a fresh approach to credit card applications, CIBC became the first big Canadian bank to use social gaming as a promotional and sign-up tool, helping customers better understand card benefits, increasing applications and overall visibility.

We struck gold with an accessible idea that evoked travel: have players fly Percy through levels that represented different countries where Olympics have been held.
