Wisconsin Cheese - Launches Cheese & Burger Society
Created by Shine Advertising, this unique and memorable website pays tribute to the 30 greatest cheeseburgers of all time — all made with Wisconsin Cheese, of course. Humorous VOs, mouthwatering photography and engaging navigation add to the overall interactive experience.
Solution: Create a destination. A fun and engaging microsite that pays tribute not only to the cheeseburger as a whole, but to the one ingredient no cheeseburger can do without – cheese. Amazingly delicious Wisconsin Cheese.
Work: Welcome to the Cheese & Burger Society at www.CheeseAndBurger.com. Finally a place for cheeseburger fans and aficionados to unite and celebrate the 30 greatest cheeseburgers ever made. The site’s look and feel is one part Ivy League fraternity house and one part American Legion hall. Navigationally, the website is simple and intuitive. Each cheeseburger is spotlighted on a Rolodex card that’s controlled by a handy slider at the bottom of the page. Complete with subtle sound effects, mouthwatering photography, and a humorous voice-over that details every cheeseburger, the site is an experience that will leave visitors hungry and entertained at the same time.
Brag: “From the outset, we wanted to create more than just another recipe website,” said John Krull, associate creative director at Shine. “Ultimately, our goal was to build a community of cheeseburger fans. That’s why you’ll notice that CheeseAndBurger.com seamlessly integrates with social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter. We really wanted to give people an opportunity to express their love for cheeseburgers made with Wisconsin Cheese, while also offering a fresh perspective on this American classic. The Cheese & Burger Society does just that.”
