For the european soccer championship 2016 we developed a special content idea. Our plan: to create an all-rounder out of all German players. As a story for his magazine. As content for earned and shared media.

Only professionals came into question to implement the idea. Dr. Lisa DeBruine from the Institute of Neuroscience and Psychology at the University of Glasgow is in charge of the university’s “Facelab”. Here she researches how people perceive faces and measures this for scientific purposes. Exclusively for us she does what she does best – but this time with national players. In every face 189 measurement points were marked and a new player was created using average values ascertained from this – a player uniting all footballers in one. One for all – all in one.

Our plan worked out: the story was not only covered by severall newspapers and online magazines, but also made it’s way into the RTL 2 newscast. And “DER MANNSCHAFT” became third as the “Social Media pictures 2016” in Germany.
