On the sun

Agency Network: 
May 2016


To draw the attention of young audience to the release of the new record On the Sun by the iconic Russian band Auktyon, we came up with the first ever album that can be heard and seen ONLY ON THE SUN. Two weeks before the official release we have issued an applications that starts playing back the new album when the smartphone camera is aimed at the sun.
We have used photochromic ink to print the album artwork: the design appears ONLY ON THE SUN and vanishes in shade. Thanks to the project, the Internet for the first time ever in the band's history turned out to be the main sales channel, while the record itself ended up being Auktyon's most commercially successful.
