Launching Aotearoa's newest art show in only 5 months

Art in the Park

“Working with Double was an absolute pleasure from start to finish! The team now feel like family and a real extension of our business. The work they did literally doubled our expectations (they really do live up to their name!!), with people saying "you'd have to be living under a rock not to have heard about Art in the Park!". They are an incredibly knowledgeable and talented team. I couldn't recommend them enough.”

About the Company

Art in the Park is an incredible art fair that showcases New Zealand’s most exciting emerging and established artists.  

The challenge was to promote and showcase an Art show that was in its inaugural year. With no content for web or ads we staged a shoot at an existing art gallery to gather content for the campaign and built an entire series of ads showcasing the wide range of art to be sold at the event.

The result? A sell-out show with lines half way around the stadium, an extatic client, doubling capacity for the next year and a series of spin-off shows planned for the coming year.

Website Rebuild

Mobile-first Lead Generation

New Zealand’s art shows typically rely on traditional advertising and existing audience lists for sales but we knew this was an expensive and dated approach. Art In The Park wanted to challenge this with a digital approach that heroed the art, the venue and was accessible to all.

Our team created a mobile and video-first digital strategy that seamlessly blended performance advertising with industry-leading creative to achieve an unheard-of return on investment. Double took ownership of all digital activity, from brand identity and new website to shooting ad content and managing all media spend. As always, everything had a foundation of solid tracking and analytics.

Website build

UI/UX Design Direction

The creative team designed a brand identity that could work across the website and all other digital channels. We knew we had to create a premium, yet artsy website that showcased the best Artist in New Zealand.

The site was structured to summarise, inform and convert website visitors into a ticket purchase. From showcasing a range of art, visualising key features, building premium options, our goal was to reduce the friction of a ticket purchase while building urgency/exclusivity and intent to purchase artwork during the event.

Video Production

Event videography + photography production

We were also tasked with covering the event and creating content for next years campaign. It was a sell out crowd and an amazing display of New Zealand’s finest artists.

Valuable Learnings

A major goal of this project was to create an advertising and sales strategy that could be reused across future shows. Uncovering key learnings across ads, pricing, targeting, urgency, art preferences, and core messaging were all critical to maximising profitability for this first event, but for confidently forecasting the success of our future shows.
