We have continued our collaboration with Bauer Media by creatingmore! magazine’s first Augmented Reality (AR) issue. This exciting campaign follows our successful launch of AR within heat magazine earlier this summer that saw an impressive 200,000 page interactions in one week along with a click through rate peaking at an incredible 64.5%.
Using our expert AR know-how, we have enabled more! readers to unlock exclusive AR content within the celebrity and high street fashion weekly by designing and developing a brand new ‘Expect more!’ app available as a free download for Apple and Android devices, allowing readers to scan selected pages of the magazine and supplement to reveal engaging and exclusive video content.
The first AR issue of more! magazine launches with their ‘More! Men and Sex Manual’ forming a 52 page supplement crammed full with celebrities and relationship advice. Upon scanning the pages marked with the ‘Expect more!’ app logo, readers will unlock exclusive video content including celeb men’s saucy secrets and exclusive interviews with Olly Murs and Olympic gymnast Louis Smith. Further engaging AR content will continue in the following weeks more! issue maintaining that all important interaction between more! readers and the magazine.
Phil Christer, Creative Director of Engine Creative said:
“We are delighted to have developed more! magazine’s first AR issue in collaboration with the editorial team at more! Having successfully implemented AR into fellow Bauer Media brand heat magazine earlier this summer we recognised that AR would work really well for the relationship, celebrity, fashion and beauty content in the magazine.
By developing the magazine’s very own ‘Expect more!’ app we have provided more! with a brand to feature prominently on thousands of device screens, that is more than capable of increasing the brand awareness of more! within the entertainment weekly market . Having developed the app we are looking forward to providing more! readers with the opportunity to unlock more exclusive video content from their favourite magazine than ever before!”
Lauren Holleyoake, Publisher of more! magazine said:
“We are thrilled to be working with Engine Creative to develop this innovative way of engaging with our consumers on a different platform. Mobile is vital for this audience and we are excited to be amplifying more’s unique men & sex content – which sets us apart from the weekly market – in this way. This offers our readers real added value and creates talkability around the brand.”
Matt Mills, Head of Partnerships at Aurasma said:

The team at Engine are power users of our platform and never cease to amaze us with the incredible augmented content they create together with Bauer Media’s editorial team.
