To which Claudio Chea, Badillo Saatchi & Saatchi's Digital Director added: "It's been a year in which we've had great opportunities to communicate our brands' relationship with their audiences through the use of creative technology and social media. Ideas like ‘Trident Jam', in which a hardware device and game let players chew Trident gum as a token for participation. On ‘Children Against Bullets', local influencing artists seeded the cause, generating over 7 million media impressions in an island of 3.7 million people. In summary, our digital muscle is now flexed and agile, allowing us to take our clients and audiences into ever more ambitious and rewarding digital experiences."
