Priceless Cities offers endless possibilities.
“As consumers everywhere get ready for the upcoming holiday travel season, Priceless Cities can help them answer the age-old question ‘what do you want to do today’ in ways they probably have never dreamed of, “ said Raja Rajamannar, CMO.
MasterCard viewed Priceless Cities as one way to inspire Americans with great ideas to spend their vacation or day off and needed to get the excitement going for exclusive offers and priceless experiences from MasterCard.
With its range of exclusive offers available, MasterCard was delivering an amazing selection of priceless dining, shopping, sports, entertainment and lodging experiences in 36 cities and marketed in 53 countries.
In order to engage the users on a personal level, we were set out to enhance the impact of marquee images with interesting cropping from page to page covering all major cities in the world. For example: wide shots for city level landings, tighter shots for category level pages, and finally, very tight crops for detail pages.
The focus of the marquee area must be on the information, function, and graphics. In order to achieve that, it was necessary to take some attention away from the marquee image by adding a ‘Black & White’ adjustment layer on top of the image layer.
The goal was to deliver an improved user experience without the need for individual microsites. The user experience we wanted to create was one that shows the breadth of offerings from Priceless.com in a unified and engaging way. So the website was designed to:
Provide consumers a seamless experience when interacting with the Priceless digital brand.
Encourage consumers to click through to other Priceless entities.
Drive awareness of Priceless.
Reinforce the MasterCard Brand.
This mobile application was to leverage the core Priceless Cities content as well as insights from consumers to create a mobile experience that extends the value of the product through the unique capabilities of the device.
We set expectations for a prototype that can be viewed on a mobile device, with clickable screens as well as some level of technical proof of concept. The goal was to get something that looks as polished and as real as possible. Working closely with the mobile technology partners within MasterCard, we developed the right and most feasible level of functionality.
