Mission Mixtape Case Study

The mixtape contained instructions for the auditory #MissionMixtape expedition, 
as well as original songs written in the genre of the "Awesome Mix" tapes found in movie.
The end of the mixtape provided a unique code that could be redeemed on the
content hub for limited edition posters and more. 

Full Auditory Experience

As the design lead for Dairy Queen, I was tasked with concepting for and creating an immersive design experience to promote DQ's partnership with Marvel Studio's Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. II and the release of DQ's Awesome Mix Blizzard of the Month. Deliverables ranged from designing the cassette tape itself, to creating an interactive mobile and web experience, and coming up with unique ways to advertise on social through Facebook's Canvas Ads.
The microsite was designed with interactivity in mind. The illustrated cassette player had working buttons that would start and stop the introductory audio and the featured Guardians Awesome Mix Blizzard of the Month® rotated in time and space. 
Go to https://www.missionmixtape.com/ for the full web experience.
We had a feeling that the 1,000 tapes would go fast, so we had to plan for the possibility that they would sell out within a few hours. The site had three stages for registration: countdown, register, and sold out. We used social media to help promote the event, which drove fans to the microsite where they could register for their #MissionMixtape. 
The 1,000 mixtapes sold out in three minutes.
The experience was built for mobile first, knowing that many participants would be directed to the microsite from social media. The one-page site had a hamburger menu that would jump scroll to the aspects of the site users wanted to see first and a modular design that would stack for an immersive mobile experience. The same interactivity found on in the web version was used for mobile.
