On-Platform and Digital Marketing Creative

by Andrea Palmer-Gray

Fully managed digital artwork solution blending creative expertise and workflow automation

With the rising importance of digital platforms, our clients recognised the need to tailor marketing assets specially for digital use, whether streaming and transactional platforms or online retail of physical media.

The frequency of new releases, and proliferation of platforms and their specifications combined with a growing number of bespoke sales deals, alongside a push for more marketing support material, creative content and episodic imagery, all put pressure on the creation and management of artwork.

Our Digital Asset Distribution solution was brought in to solve this challenge; from creating impactful hero images that instantly engage the target audience, to managing the high volume, low cost requirements around localisation and optimisation for platform specifications, we bring together the expertise and systems to deliver both marketing and operations requirements.

We developed a variety of flexible service options:

Self-service:we create, self-approve and upload assets to our content management system, allowing platforms to self-serve approved assets in a timely manner, cutting out lengthy client administration processes.

- Bespoke: we manage key art, AV materials or any other marketing materials directly with the client according to demand.

- Fully managed: we have direct access to client’s systems. When the platform posts a request for assets, we fulfil these directly on behalf of our clients, with low-to-no touch from their internal teams.

Across our studio clients, we handle:

- 200 specs across 60 platforms

- 40,000 assets/year – 120/day on average

- 40 territories

Our solution manages scale and complexity with minimum administration effort or technical input from the client, delivering a cost effective and flexible service – with excellent creative output. And as a trusted long term partner, we’re now also supporting Universal in their premium video-on-demand release of content during the ongoing pandemic.
