The New York Public Library – Insta Novels
Teachers and parents lament over the fact that less and less young people pick up a book to read.
Instead of blaming technology and ubiquitous smartphones, The New York Public Library found a way to put social media to good use.
They hacked InstaStories with Insta Novels.
- 13K new followers in the first 24hrs
- 140K new followers to date
- 300K Insta Novels read and counting
- Covered in over 700+ publications
For this creative and innovative solution, Insta Novels were awarded the Clio Grand award for design in the Digital/Mobile category.
Last year, Dunkin’ Donuts changed its name to Dunkin’ to remain relevant and fresh, says Dunkin’ COO Scott Murphy in an interview.
The company has seen consumers changing their taste profiles. The next generation is expecting different things from Dunkin’ Donuts so they knew the time to go through a transformation has arrived.
The company reached out to its present consumer base and also to consumers who haven’t returned to their stores in a while. Dropping half of their brand name was readily accepted by their consumers because they were already referring to the famous doughnut store as just Dunkin’, the consumer research revealed.
Besides the name change, this transformation included fitting their stores with state-of-the-art coffee machines, changing their creative agency and focusing on rebranding as a beverage company.
Dunkin won the Clio Gold award for design in the Brand & Corporate Identity category.
- 3 billion media impressions
- 30K+ social media mentions in 24hrs
- #8 on Twitter Trends
- The most talked-about campaign in Dunkin’s 70-year history

We are living in a world plagued by racism. Racist attitudes lead to violence and racist minds are a threat to global peace.
But what do you do when the highest authority in a state, the President supports racism and encourages his people to do the same?
