About the Client

The Vita Group is a leading Australian retail brand that prides itself on delivering exceptional and personalised experiences for customers across many of the country’s most well-known and respected brands. It is involved with well-known storefront chains such as Telstra and Sprout, as well as other new additions to their increasingly diverse portfolio.

Client Objective

VITACON is an annual internal event where representatives from each of the company’s retail establishments meet to network, exchange advice and learn from Vita Group management about the direction the company is heading towards over the following year. To help celebrate the occasion, Vita Group required a unique and eye-catching way to invite guests to the event, which combined the overall “50’s diner” theme with the company’s focus on making technology fun and accessible.

iFactory Solution

iFactory created a one-of-a-kind interactive storybook microsite where visitors could choose their own adventure, following the storyline to reach an invitation to the upcoming event. Each part of the story was accompanied by animated artwork, backed with a rockin’ soundtrack.

Creating the storybook required a unique blend of writing, art and coding. Working with Vita Group, iFactory’s illustrators developed the characters based on six popular archetypes of the era including a rebel, a slick rocker and a Hollywood starlet. iFactory’s writers crafted the branching storyline so that each character would appear at least once regardless of which path the reader took, while providing interesting twists and turns along the way. From there, detailed backgrounds were drawn and coloured for the characters and story elements. Developers then took these elements and built a custom website that added animation, music and other effects to enhance the experience and give visitors an invitation to remember.
