SINGAPORE, May 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Reinforcing creative and innovation excellence in Mobile Advertising
InMobi, the leading innovator in mobile advertising and the largest independent mobile ad network and iProspect, Adidas' global digital performance agency, have been recognized with the highest award in the Best Design, Game and Application Category at the recently concluded Adobo Design Awards 2013 in Manila, Philippines.
InMobi and iProspect won the award for their rich media mobile ad campaign for Adidas Boost footwear. The campaign was recognized for bringing the experience of running effortlessly with Adidas Boost, a revolutionary shoe with a new cushioning technology. The rich media campaign, developed using InMobi Studio - the industry leading HTML5 ad-authoring platform, ran in Philippines earlier this year and generated high levels of engagement amongst the target audience.
The ad unit enabled users to "run" through multiple terrains using their fingers with varying levels of difficulty and conditions, and communicated the idea of running effortlessly to the target audience - people that could run but didn't want to. The ad unit's creativity and innovation also lay in comparing an individual's performance against other runners in the neighbourhood, based on location and displaying the results on a custom map.
Commenting on the award, Phalgun Raju, Vice President and General Manager, India and South-East Asia said, "The Adobo Award demonstrates InMobi's continued leadership in designing and delivering innovative and award winning campaigns to the brands and agencies we work with. This award is the latest in a series of industry recognitions and wins for InMobi. It reflects the capabilities of our creative services and ad delivery teams in driving HTML5 rich media innovations of our brand advertisers and agencies. Our ability to consistently innovate and deliver on our clients' marketing messages creatively and effectively is what differentiates InMobi from other mobile ad networks."
Shayne Garcia, Digital Director at iProspect Philippines, commented, "I see inMobi not only as a platform provider but as a long-term business partner. What makes inMobi stand out is its passionate people who work together in developing award-winning concepts and technological solutions that help us answer our clients' marketing objectives. As iProspect continues to develop breakthrough digital campaigns that do not only deliver reach but also engage consumers, I am looking forward to more strategic partnerships with the inMobi team."
