Project Architeuthis: Engaging America's Cyber Warriors
Americas Navy launched Project Architeuthis based on a highly integrated creative and social media idea for an ARG, or Alternative Reality Game, that engaged the Navy Cryptology target with incredibly challenging puzzles, cyphers, and cryptic clues regarding the location of a mysterious, fictional enemy. ARG player adoption, community sharing and deep brand engagement helped the Navy reach its elite target and overcome the challenges of no media budget and a reduced prospect pool to meet 100% of its recruiting goal.

Girls experience the biggest drop in confidence during puberty, around the same time as their first period. As a society, we contribute to that drop, often without even recognizing it. Always wanted to change this, so they created a rallying cry to reverse the meaning of a common playground insult to champion girls confidence through the #LikeAGirl campaign. #LikeAGirl gave life to our brand purpose and inspired our target. It created a global movement with 76MM views and spread beyond our wildest expectations!
