Domino’s Pizza

Create a campaign which reinstates Domino’s ownership of the ‘Two for Tuesday’ pizza deal. t

I realised early on that a visual style or process would have no impact on Domino’s potential audience. To research I read a book called ‘Jab, Jab, Jab Right Hook’ by Gary Vaynerchuck, which concerns itself with how brands can tell their stories in a saturated market place. A basic concept in the book is that brands have to give give give before they can expect anything in return. This was the main influence in the direction I took with the brief. Developing a campaign aimed specifically to work with Twitter and Instagram. With the method of delivery decided, the name fell into place, it needed to be snappy and rhyme with the existing ‘Two for Tuesday’ campaign. This is to give Domino’s a sense of confidence and continuation. The name ‘#2kTuesday’ was used, the # is included to symbolise the campaigns online delivery.

This brief was a game-changer for me in terms of how I deal with collaborations. Having started the brief as a collaboration I quickly realised my partner was void of idea and the work ethic required to keep me from smashing my head against a brick wall repeatedly. I took the brave decision to end the collaboration, dealing with my fear of confrontation. A turning point, in previous years I would have continued the brief and compromised my sanity to help the other person, not any more. I know who I want to be and i have no chance of getting there working with dead-weight. This went beyond my development as a designer and has helped make my life outside of design much better too.

Background Since introducing the ‘Two for Tuesday’ offer Domino’s Pizza have been overtaken by their main competitor Pizza Hut. The campaign needs to be fresh, captivating and be aimed at an audience of 18-24 year olds.

Considerations

The mechanics of the campaign are simple, the customer orders their food, uploads a photograph and shares it with their online community. The photograph with the most likes wins £2000 in cash at midnight on the Tuesday. The campaign is very simple, and will pole-vault Domino’s past their competition and have Domino’s dominate the Tuesday takeaway pizza market.

What are the daily habits of an 18-24 year old? What do they desire to have and what do they aspire to be? These were the main questions that needed to be answered in order to create an effective campaign.

In terms of design process, the research I made into human psychology and brand interaction has changed my outlook on branding again. I realised that the behavioural reaction to brands is a scientific one, whilst the ability to attain that reaction can be an art. By this I mean people react to brands in predictable ways, but these reactions can be attained from a variety of methods. This is very interesting to me. The brief has developed my copy-writing ability, from something I considered a weakness of mine last year it has become a strength. My ability to plan a campaign is much better, considering how an idea spreads, cost of deliverables and existing promotional materials Domino’s have to implement to campaign. In the brief I was able to communicate an idea concisely, this is a necessity when in industry and it gives me confidence. What would I do differently next time? I would chose collaborative partners more wisely, working with people who are ideas driven rather than grade driven.

What I did

Why I did it

How the research informed me

I didn’t look at Domino’s previous campaigns, or any of their competitors. Instead I read books about advertising theory, the new economy and strategy for effective use of social media.

I avoided researching previous Domino’s campaings as I wanted to have an original idea, without being too concerned about selling pizza, and more focussed on developing an online community for Domino’s pizza. I wanted to understand the theory behind social media and how it can be used effectively.

I became aware the emphasis of brands using social media must be to give to the customer. The campaign I created had to give, give give to the customer without asking for anything in return.

Concept

Campaign mechanics

Why it works

#2kTuesday The customer uploads a photograph when ordering their food, this is uploaded to the Domino’s ‘#2kTuesday’ Instagram feed, the photograph with the most like by midnight on the Tuesday wins £2000.

The campaign will use the existing Domino’s website, Twitter and Instagram. The Domino’s menu and pizza box will be used to promote the campaign, with editorial and bus shelters being placed around cities to tempt hungry comuters on their journey home after a long day in work.

People like pizza, people like money, people like community. This campaign offers all three under a snappy name. The user has an influence in whether or not they win (by sharing the photograph with more people) which in turn will help Domino’s promoted their #2kTuesday campaign.

Problems

New direction

Central to the idea is a redesign of the Domino’s online ordering system. This was the first attempt I made.

The design was too cluttered and confusing. The ordering process should be much more simple and follow the 1,2,3 step nature of the #2kTuesday campaign.

The online ordering system must be simplified. Not just visually, but structurally, to make the ordering process less of a pain than it is currently.

Online restructure

Why it works

The ordering system has been simplified to replicate the similicity of the #2kTuesday campaign.

The upload a photograph feature enables to the campaign to work. The newly simplified ordering process make ordering food less of a tedious experience, meaning more people are likely to order Domino’s Pizza. This is without the opportunity of £2000 and minor celebrity that #2kTuesday offers.

Print campaign

Method of delivery

Why it works

A print campaign will run which directs people to the Domino’s website. No mention of pizza in the campaign, the focus is on the simplicity of #2kTuesday and that it is an opportunity to win £2000 in cash money.

Domino’s promotional materials, such as pizza boxes and menus are used to promote the campaign. Traditional media such as free national newspapers (The Metro) and bus shelter adverts are used to tempt hungry commuters online for a chance to win £2000.

People like pizza, people like money, people like community.
