BrazucaCam bringing technology to the beautiful game

This week at the 2014 Cannes Lions, I had the opportunity to listen to Fabio Costa from TBWA Chiat Day Los Angeles present the Adidqs BrazucaCam in the Innovation Category. In a sport with such a huge global following, especially this month with FIFA World Cup, it was wonderful to see technology bringing fan excitement to the beautiful game.

Considering how complex sports rights are, I hope this initiative will gain traction, offering viewers with a different perspective of the game.

Inspired by Skype's Campaign

I'm waiting to board my flight to the 2014 Cannes Lions reading Adweek's article on the 25 campaigns they predict will win this year. I fell in love with Skype's "The Born Friends Family Portrait" campaign by Pereira & O'Dell, San Francisco. A truly inspiring story and how the brand seemlesly facilitates a beautiful connection.

It made me think of how certain brands are finding and communicating their higher purpose. In my marketing role here at BBVA, I wonder what real stories exist among our millions of customers we have around the World that could inspire our brand communication?
