Branded with selected titles from the HBO Max platform, the package instantly captured attention. Each recipient received a personal message with a special video greeting accessed through a QR code, further enhancing the personalised touch.

When the recipients opened the box, four helium balloons in the shape of a heart, branded with HBO Max, would pop up. This playful surprise added an element of joy to the unboxing experience. Prior to the delivery, recipients were invited to a special landing page where they could choose their favorite design to be printed on a custom phone case matching their device.

In addition to the personalised phone case, recipients also received a branded hoodie, a branded stainless steel bottle featuring the signature gradient of HBO Max, a greeting card with information about the new service, and a puff.
