Describe the creative idea

BlindMeters.com, a first of its kind platform that gives everybody concrete insight in how many meters they exactly miss when texting and driving. BlindMeters.com is geo-located and turns Google Maps into a text editor, allowing you to type on any road. A custom-made font connects to the speed limitation data of the specific road you’re typing on and stretches to the exact number of meters you miss when texting and driving. To do so we programmed an algorithm that connects different databases and layers them onto one website, together with a specially designed font made for the purpose of dynamically stretch.

Describe the execution

The launch of BlindMeters.com played out across various channels. The campaign took off with an intriguing 45” and 60” film on TV and in Cinema, teasing the audience with the question ‘How many metres are you driving blind?’ and inciting them to find out on BlindMeters.com. A press release was sent out and a digital traffic-building connectivity plan was executed the very same day as the film was launched. Including banners, Instagram Stories, Google Ad-words and 4 influencers whom we asked to walk the ‘blind distance’ of the last message they wrote while texting behind the wheel. Very eye-opening for them, and their followers, knowing that one fraction of a second of not paying attention can be deadly.
