We started working with Spark late 2016 through their Agency Colenso BBDO. For their social summer campaign, they were sending 4x teams of 2x content creators around the country in Spark branded old-school Volkswagen vans, each team capturing their road-trip and telling their story for social media. We travelled from Queenstown to Wellington stopping off in several places along the way including Lake Tekapo, Cromwell and Christchurch to provide free wifi for holiday-makers, handing out the Spark merch and creating mini travel stories each day for 10 days sharing to Spark’s social channels including Snapchat and Facebook.
