Case Study

Marvin Radke is a League of Legends streamer that wanted to stand out from the noise by delivering high quality content to his friends and followers, while building a business to support his project.
Kataplasma was granted the mission to help him refresh his brand to delight his followers while building a system that generates sales using digital media.
We had to learn from the audience and maintain the heritage of the existing brand to keep the current fans engaged and excited about this transformation.

Challenge

Reach more people online, stand out from the noise, and increase follower's interactions and satisfaction.

Outcome

A whole brand refresh, a custom interactive avatar, and a music theme to communicate clearly across every touchpoint.

Setting the course

Kataplasma's Chief Strategist, Sebastián Lecona, sat down with CEO Marvin Radke and surfaced the needs of the project to define the steps required for this great task.
They had to start with the fans to leverage their input. They ran a couple of interviews and polls to discover what they liked about him and his content to reflect that through the whole identity. Together they worked with this information to define the concept; a magical cloud that had 6 funny dropplets to help him.
Cloud Corleone and the Friendly Mafia.

Planning the Strategy

They aligned the purpose to the offer, defined the brand, clarified it's positioning and messaging, and created a marketing plan that would help Marvin promote his content with the appropriate social media channels, this was achieved with the Inspiration Strategy Framework™.

Designing the Characters

After defining a creative brief Kataplasma developed some sketches, concept art, and color pallets to bring Cloud and his helpers to life. As part of this Kataplasma created a series of GIF's and emoticons to make the channel feel unique and be remarkable.

Digital Puppet

Marvin had always wanted to wear a mask on his streams to represent him and his brand, so the idea of designing a digital character that reacted to a webcam, recognized facial expressions, had animations with triggers, and interactions with twitch,was the perfect solution.

Results

Brand aligned comunication assets, interactions increased by 300%, and the follower count doubled in the first month after the release.

"Working with Kataplasma is easy, really fun and they create awesome results. Sebastian gave me new  ideas and really took my Youtube channel to the next level. Overall, it is a great pleasure to work with Kataplasma."
