When eHarmony was looking to partner with a company for a new creative angle for their 2010 “Love Begins Here” ad campaign, they looked no further than the unique technology and photo mosaic design of Picture Mosaics. eHarmony had the initial conceptual direction for a photo mosaic, however wanted Picture Mosaics to dig deep into their creativity and technology to produce something truly unique and special that would capture the campaign’s message and stay true to their branding.
What happens when you take two world class organizations, The Pittsburgh Penguins and The Mario Lemieux Foundation, and combine it with our mosaic technology, services, and attention to artistic detail: one amazing online photo mosaic experience. The initial goal was to create a large permanent 20ft x 8ft mural in new Penguins CONSOL arena, however with the addition of touch screen kiosks and an online photo mosaic, it became much more. The Mario Mosaic was a great way to involve the community and help raise funds for cancer and neonatal research; without a doubt it has become a main attraction at the new hockey arena.
We’re thrilled to announce that our interactive mosaics have made a transition from Adobe Flash to HTML5. Without digging to deep into it, our interactive mosaics are now being built using html code rather than contained within a Flash player. This give us a great advantage when building online interactive mosaics. You can read more about the differences between Flash and HTML5 here.
For a donation of just $25 to the Magee-Womens Foundation, participants of Magee’s 100th anniversary celebration were able to include a photograph of themselves, their child, or another special person in their life in the Magee 100 Mosaic. Thousands of submitted photos helped to create this 14ft x 7ft Magee 100 Mosaic — a beautiful piece of artwork that hangs in the main lobby of the hospital.
Each donation was used to support the Patient Care Fund at Magee-Womens Hospital of UPMC. The Patient Care Fund provides many necessary items for patients and their families while being cared for at Magee.
An online interactive photo mosaic is the perfect way to bring people together for a good cause. Three years ago, we teamed up with the American Diabetes Association to create a fan-driven photo mosaic. The goal was to show the world what a day in the life of diabetes is really like. The photos came pouring in and the results were truly inspirational. With social sharing and audience engagement being a key factor, the ADA online photo mosaic has played an important role in diabetes awareness these past few years.
Cheerios has been a household name for years. So, when they contacted us about creating a fan-driven online photo mosaic, we were more than thrilled! Using a modified version of our interactive mosaic platform*, Cheerios asks parents across Canada to share photos of that special moment when their child enjoys their “First Cheerios.” Parents can upload photos directly from their Facebook album or local PC in a simple Facebook tab.
Not only are photos featured in the mosaic, but the user also receives a $1.00 off coupon after their submission is complete. Photos are shared through Facebook by the click of a button. Our dynamic “pop-out” animation showcases individual photos at random, bringing them out of the photo mosaic for a detailed view with their photo caption.
