Back to Vinyl – The Office Turntable

Kontor, a dance music label in Germany, promoted the new Boris Dlugosch release to the advertising industry with “Back to Vinyl – The Office Turntable”. Targeting the world’s most un-impressible audience, agency creative directors, required a fresh approach to avoid having promo CDs passed on their secretaries or, more often, just binned. Orange vinyl discs were sent instead of CD, MP3 or USB together with a turntable made from the envelope, and a QR code to play it. Recipients just had to flip the envelope, put the disc on the ‘turntable’, activate the QR code with their smart phone, place it over the record and listen to the new track. They could also play other tracks, or contact Kontor via the connect icon. The project won a Gold Design Lion at Cannes International Festival of Creativity.
