Intel: The Creators Project

THE CHALLENGE

Increase Intel’s relevance among global youth. As an ingredient brand Intel struggle to be seen as relevant and needed to build its own emotional connection with young consumers due to their buying power and strong influence over the technology purchasing decisions of households.

THE SOLUTION

VICE took the brand from inside of computers and put it inside of culture by building a platform, The Creators Project. The platform supports artists across multiple disciplines who use technology in innovative ways to push the boundaries of creative expression.

Intel’s core technology offering facilitates and enables creativity, the platform is celebration of creativity driven by technology, giving both authentic and powerful brand value attribution.

The platform spans touch-points, a dedicated media channel, original videos, massive experiential events, mobile applications, partnerships with leading museums, a dedicated YouTube channel, an arts production studio activated in the USA, UK, France, Brazil, China and South Korea. 

THE RESULTS

Since launch, The Creators Project has generated more than 250 million video views and more than 50 million unique visitors. The events have attracted more than 720,000 attendees overall and won critical acclaim from hundreds of international news outlets.
