Not just a simple service, building a close relationship with customers
Baedaltong is a mobile application that was launched in April 2010 to provide information on food delivery service based on a user’s location. User’s ratings and reviews were used to revolutionize and enhance the food deliver service culture by reducing distrust and building confidence among vendors. In 2013 the company sought new ways to create close relationships with users beyond food delivery service information. designfever created a viral video campaign designed to bring attention to the moment of delivery, encouraging application use by showing relatable situations of ‘people who eat delivery food’.
Creating a new formula, Delivery = Baedaltong
The primary purpose of the project was to have users think of the quality food delivery service application immediately when they encounter the word ‘baedal’ (meaning ‘delivery’). ‘Delivery = Baedaltong’ is a formula that was created to redefine key purposes of the application and reducing it to its essential function, ‘delivery’. designfever wanted to present baedaltong beyond the concept of a transportation service, but rather as a means of connecting people. The narrative was unique in that it focused on situations that viewers could empathize and connect with.
