ING-DiBa: Smartphone basketball


To bring the “effectiveness and simplicity” of its direct banking to the attention of 20 somethings at basketball events across Germany.


ING-DiBa created a hoop shoot game that people could play on their smartphones.

A digital billboard was set up outside basketball games and using a specially designed app people were awarded “three free plays” where they could attempt to get a virtual ball through the virtual hoop by going through the motion of throwing with their smartphone in hand.  After their three attempts the app posted a picture of their best shot onto the player’s Facebook wall.
