The gingerbread transformation: A festive success story

The collaboration between Apache and Visage Technologies culminated in an enchanting marketing experience for a leading cosmetics brand, transforming a festive concept into an interactive reality. 

This unique campaign was centered around a gingerbread-themed experience, designed to promote the brand’s winter collection of products, which were inspired by the warm, inviting scents of gingerbread and other festive aromas.

At the heart of this campaign was a life-size Gingerbread House pop-up. It was an immersive and whimsical installation that invited visitors to step into a world reminiscent of classic holiday tales. 

As part of the interactive experience, users could transform themselves into Gingerbread characters, using the advanced face tracking and analysis technology provided by Visage Technologies. 

This transformation resonated perfectly with the festive spirit of Christmas holidays creating a magical and memorable moment for each participant. And in turn, it resulted in a highly popular installation.

The campaign was a resounding success, engaging approximately 5000 users over a three-month period. And it received widespread acclaim for its innovation and interactivity.

Moreover, the successful fusion of Visage Technologies’ face tracking and analysis with Apache’s imaginative concept demonstrated the effectiveness and appeal of combining cutting-edge technology with thematic marketing strategies. 

“Visage Technologies’ solutions stood out to us for a number of factors. Primarily the quality of the tracking, but also the license pricing, ease of communication, and the way the solution was structured. It ultimately gave us exactly what we needed.”
