AdMat Design

Monkey Ping Inc. along with Pitbull’s and Live Nation’s teams, developed the creation of various designs for the Admat for “The Bad Man Tour”, a massive tour of the entire United States territory, featured Pitbull as the main artist and Prince Royce as the tour’s special guest.

One functional characteristic of this Admat, is that it had to be designed with enough hierarchical space to include an image of a rotating third artist,that would feature as a guest of the night depending on the city the show was playing. This created a new experience every time a new Admat would be rolled out according to the date and venue of the show. Recording artist Farruko featured as a tour guest on several occasions.

Tour
Landing Page Design

Monkey Pig designed and programmed the landing page for “The Bad Man Tour”. The objective was to provide users with access to individual ticket sale for each tour date and city in which the show was to be presented, provide access to special fan/insider information, and access to tour related merchandise.

A one stop shop/hub where the user was immersed in the tour experience, achieving his main objective of user approved data collection and analytics.
