We were asked to generate  hype and drive attention to the newest installment in the longstanding video game franchise Diablo
For our campaign, we chose to focus on a specific type of gamer: the Farmers. Farmers are common in many types of games, but nowhere are they rewarded more for their efforts than ARPGs like Diablo.

Examples of Farming in different games
Examples of Farming in different games
Phase 1: Outrage
We would begin by placing incendiary (and crudely designed) billboards across the corn belt, with the goal of inciting reactions from non-gamer locals. 
The ultimate goal of phase one would be to direct attention to FarmersHell.com - where the true purpose of the campaign would be revealed.
Phase 2: Reverence
Testimonials and photos from real "Farmers" who contributed to the site.​​​​​​​
For those who weren't able to opt in during phase one, a custom Instagram filter allows them to join in on the hype as well.
The Carhartt collaboration merchandise would become available to the public at this point, and be featured on the official Carhartt WIP Instagram page.
