    Welcome TEDxHomeBushRdWomen, the first TEDxWomen event in New Zealand and it’s here in Wellington!

    Held on Saturday 7th December 2013, the event will feature at least 90minutes worth of content streamed from the San Francisco TEDWomen 2013 gathering:

  • Creating Curiosity | City-wide Brand Campaign

    Creating Curiosity Stickers

    If you follow us online or live in Wellington you might have seen some of the above (digital and real) flyers around.

    We asked brand engagement guys Chilli to assist in the design and execution of an awareness campaign to educate and inspire the Wellington community about the 2013 TEDxTeAro event on June 29. The objective was to engage ‘undiscovered’ fans by opening their eyes to the purpose of TED and appealing to their sense of intrigue.

    Creating Curiosity

    The campaign aims to ‘positively interrupt’ daily routines with a question folks have never considered before, but are equally curious as to the answer. Examples of these questions include:

    • How does a fly, fly?
    • What do babies think about?
    • Why are we happy?

    …and they come in stickers as well:

    Creating Curiosity Flyers

    The questions are accompanied with a call to action to uncover the answer via interested.co.nz (a landing page within this site) where participants will watch a TED video which answers their question. Accompanying this is all the information they need for TEDxTeAro and an invite to join our online community (either via Facebook / Twitter / email newsletter—sign up in the footer).

    The aim is to grow an audience of passionate TED fans that are informed and inspired to join TEDxTeAro at one of the many streaming parties.

    Here are all the images / designs for download (1.5mb zip file) and feel free to share them far and wide.
