Octagon is a global Sports and Entertainment marketing company. We create partnerships, campaigns and experiences for some of the world’s bravest and most inspiring brands. Our purpose is to create work that *earns* attention. We live in a world where time is our most precious commodity, and our audiences’ patience has never been shorter. As an industry, we’ve never had to work harder to gain the attention of the people we’re trying to reach. The way we see it, there’s two ways to go about it. Attention is either bought or it's earned. Paid attention ensures your brand will be heard – and that's a good start. But attention that’s earned ensures your audience actually listens to what you're saying. Through smart partnerships and generous ideas, we compete for, capture, and ultimately earn the attention of those who matter most. Clients: Dove, Hahn, XXXX, SCB, Rexona, Mastercard and more.
The worlds of marketing, entertainment and information are colliding. Arcade’s entrepreneurial approach to creativity helps brands thrive in this disruptive environment, allowing them to play a more relevant and meaningful role in people’s lives. As Creative Director, I led the Heineken Account across South East Asia. We built Heineken’s music presence through a 5 year social experiment; ‘The Heineken Original Sound Experiments.’ A collision of technology, DJs and fans. In 2015 we rolled out Heineken ‘Can You See Music?’ across Asia with 37 events, in 17 cities across 8 countries. The experimental graphics reacted to the biometric measurements of the clubbers, allowing us to truly personalise each night - representing the flavour of each city. Magnum Ice Cream appointed 'Taste the Classic' concept after I led a successful pitch. The work will be rolling out across Asia early 2016. Red Bull 'Night Hunt' gave Singapore a new reason to race the night during F1. We created five F1 sculptures showcasing Red Bull Racing famous objects, such as the F1 steering wheel. These sculptures were made to be photographed and captured the attention of Instagrammers island wide. The mobile first site designed & built was recognized as best practice globally at Red Bull.
