OK, anytime we bump into a claim for 'world's first', our media trend watching radar perks up. If you're looking for a cool idea, how about this...
Custom cell phone wallpaper.
San Francisco's START MOBILE, a gallery selling art for cell phones. Part of the START SOMA gallery, the venture sells thousands of original works of new art from hundreds of established and underground artists, to be downloaded onto mobile phones. Wallpapers are billed $1.99 USD, with the artist receiving a small cut.
Cool Idea: If you are in media, why not contact Start Soma and have their artists put a pop culture spin on your logo integrated into art for your audience's cellphone? Or, better yet, set up an affiliate marketing relationship to help sell the cellphone wallpaper artwork through your company's website, where you pick up a small cut for each transaction driven through your website. Good for your NTR initiatives.
