Google – Doodle4Google

An activation for Google that harnessed the power of children and their imagination to become more relevant and emotionally connected with Vietnamese parents.

Challenge

Although Google is widely used in Vietnam, Phibious realized parents and the educational system did not utilize Google as a tool for learning. The challenge was to make this search engine relevant and inspirational to parents and educators.

Strategy

Young Vietnamese parents really care about the development of their children’s future. They are open to all kinds of activities that will help their kids develop. Within an environment where creativity is not widely promoted in school systems, Google unleashed the imagination and creativity of Vietnamese children in a fun and meaningful way; in a way that inspired the nation. The strategy was to make Google come alive – from the desktop to drawing papers, in the eyes of both parents and kids.
