Trick. Treat. Win!

Brand Identity & Packaging / Contests & Games / Retail Experience



Noticing a pattern of decreasing visits to its restaurants during the month of October, McDonald’s wanted to introduce a month-long program that would tempt customers back. We made it our objective to turn that all around by crafting an experience that drove guest counts, reinvigorated sales and boosted brand affinity.


We developed a scary-good program called Trick. Treat. Win! that leveraged a timely Halloween theme and a chance at instant-win prizes to delight customers. And for the first time ever, our program gave customers the opportunity to choose the prizes they won.
