These included participation in Raptors Jam with wrapped basketballs and celeb photo ops, Double-Bubble foamies at games, arena take-overs and custom social media posts for BBM Pins. I was part of the small team that hatched a ton of fun XM activations in new and experimental media. The client was very open-minded to our out-of-the-box ideas! BBM experienced a surge of 20M downloads at launch! It sparked a social trend with BBM Pin posts, and recognition of the brand previously exclusive to BlackBerry only.
