Celebrating Women With QR Codes & Other News

Fashion powerhouses DVF and Burberry are creating exclusive experiences with QR Codes, while Stella Artois and Hershey use them to boost campaigns.

Stella Artois takes a “Leap” with QR Codes

With the extra 24-hours it gave us, it’s no wonder brands were jumping to celebrate Leap Day this year. Stella Artois was keen to show some love for the Leap Year with their recent campaign, which encouraged consumers to spend the extra time with friends and family.

As part of their campaign, Stella released a short film demonstrating how people could uncancel their plans and get out of the house to socialize in person. To encourage engagement, QR Codes are featured on their digital out of home (OOH) placements that activated the film when scanned. Read the full story.

This latest mobile innovation has launched a few months after the opening of Burberry’s new flagship store in Tokyo. The futuristic shop lets consumers scan QR Codes to activate an “exclusive artificial reality experience” on Ginza Chuo-dori, enabling hidden Burberry deers on the streets of Ginza.
