March Snackness
Inspired by 'March Madness', the marketing team at Popmenu was tasked with developing a social campaign to boost impressions and engagement. Thirty-two food items were selected to put up against one another in a tournament-style head-to-head competition. People would vote for their favorite and the winner would move on to the next round. 
The campaign consisted of an announcement video that prompted hype for the event, thirty-one head-to-head matchup animations, and a winner announcement video.
The announcement videos were styled to resemble ESPN high-level sports teasers. Lots of action accompanying music. 3D elements designed with Element 3D were incorporated for a higher impact on the audience.
The head-to-head posts were designed specifically for Instagram Stories, thus were in a tall format, keeping the output limited to one social source, making it easier for proper reporting on the data side. The design was templatized to allow for rapid creation as the competition progressed and to increase the level of recognition by voters. The main difference is the center 3D element changed with each round.
The example piece to the right was the final matchup.
