Challenge

Challenge: Bulova asked for user-generated images of watches to be used on their Instagram account (@bulova) before their newest collection hit the stores! The photos were to be 100% authentic and fresh to appeal to their targeted urban, creative audience; the modern generation.

Solution

Foap was able to identify great photographers that could contribute best with different styles, angles and perspectives. So we facilitated product sampling, shipment as well as further art direction follow-up with photographers.

Results

By working with a diverse community of photographers Bulova was able to create content portfolio for several watches that made great product/fashion/urban/lifestyle-oriented digital UGC for the brand to distribute even before the collection was out!
