About VCCP

Part of VCCP’s success has come from its longstanding dedication to its ten founding principles. They were established at launch to be the antithesis to all the frustrations the founders had experienced at other advertising agencies. It means we spend less time managing and more time thinking. 

Be Un-precious
Brilliant ideas come from openness.

Be Responsible
Great teams take responsibility for each other.

Be On Time
Deliver on time, or earlier.

Be Lean
Small motivated teams achieve the best results.

Be Clear
Its easy to complicate, it's difficult to simplify.

Be Approachable
Listen to whoever wants to speak to you.

Be Happy
Enjoy work.

Be Honest
Keep open books and admit mistakes.

Be Proud
Take pride in the work we produce.

Be Fast
Delay is corrosive, energy is infectious.

My Heart Will Go On… Asda creates Valentine’s Day messaging app set to the beat of your heart

When it comes to celebrating Valentine’s Day, we’re all used to old fashioned flowers, chocolates, or a romantic meal, but this Valentine’s Day something more techy may be coming your way. Today, Asda launches the first app that allows personalised messages to be sent via the beat of your heart.

In an era where devices are blamed for disconnecting us from family, friends and partners, Asda, via its creative agency VCCP, will release the app which aims to have the opposite effect and bring people together with this ingenious and heartfelt use of modern technology.

Chris Chalmer, Senior Director Digital Marketing, Media and CRM at Asda said: “It’s often tricky for a supermarket to stand out during Valentine’s, but our ‘Send Your Heart’ app is both bold and innovative and it sets us apart in the market. The idea of sending someone your actual heartbeat encapsulates the notion of showing someone that you really care – we feel it is something extra special”.

Andy Booth, Creative Director at VCCP, said: “The huge effect technology has had on the world of romance is amazing, it’s changed it forever. So it seemed a logical step to find a way to use technology to enhance Valentine’s Day with something romantic that could have never been done before. Like sending your loved one your actual heartbeat set to a beautiful score, whether they’re on the other side of the world or downstairs in the front room. And all courtesy of Asda, a brand that has helped people celebrate Valentine’s for years”.

 

How the app works:

  • Simply place your finger over the camera and flash when prompted
  • Using the light from the flash, the app then uses the camera to detect unique colour changes in your skin, so that when you press your finger down it detects and records your heartbeat
  • The unique sound of your actual heartbeat is then set to a romantic score, which you are able to send along with your personal message to a loved one, via whichever messaging services your device allows

 

The app launches today (Friday 12th February) and is available to download via the app store on both iOS and Android.
