Windows Phone

While an Associate Creative Director at T3, my team was responsible for the strategy, content, and management of Microsoft's social channels for Windows Phone. As part of a #TimeToSwitch campaign, we conducted a series of camera tests to prove which smartphone takes the best low-light photos. 

We turned the results into animated GIFs—making the proof instantly sharable. It was the first time GIFs have been used for a competitive demo. 

All photos were taken with default settings under the same lighting conditions without a flash. None were retouched.
Behind-the-scenes videos also fueled the conversation between doubters and fans. 

The campaign generated a 5% increase in daily comparative conservations against the iPhone and Samsung Galaxy.
