Printer launches are just another event. Trust me, I attended many.
But HP Ink Advantage Launch 2012 was something else. A rather brilliant collaboration with the unconventional yet talented artist Red Hong Yi, HP’s latest Ink Advantage campaign’s message of “Print More, Pay Less and Risk Nothing” was delivered across effectively via the astounding artwork by artist Red Hong Yi.
I can’t help it. As a digital strategist I like relevant but unconventional marketing concepts and this one actually made me sit up and paid attention during the launch. No doubt the numbers are impressive; ONE (1) ink cartridge that costs RM37 allows printing of up to 1500 pages but the message delivery was something else. Red Hong Yi showed how SHE uses that ONE (1) ink cartridge that costs RM37 and printed 1500 pages that made up her artwork of 93.5m2.
Yes, via feathers, thousands of papers, a HP printer and ONE single cartridge. Behold the massive but really admirable artwork!
Rather than just plain marketing, the message got delivered loud and clear. A brief product session tour followed right after but the only thing that stuck to my head was that massive artwork, and the fact that it was possible with a HP printer via scanning and printing and ONE ink cartridge.
For specs, I’ll outline them briefly here, together with the prices of course. Prices are most important right? 🙂
Enjoy the pictures and if you’re seeking a new printer to buy, the HP printers with scan, print and WIFI capabilities are the way to go. According to Martin you will be able to print DIRECTLY from your phone via WIFI and if you’re far away from your printer (I’m talking hundreds of km away) you will still be able to print via an exclusive assigned email which allows you to “connect” to your computer remotely and enables printing immediately (* selected models). Isn’t that cool or what? 🙂
