Arconic / The Jetsons IRL

What will cities look like in 2062?

To launch the metal engineering brand Arconic, we assembled the world's top futurists, metal engineers and sci-fi filmmakers. Their task: to imagine what the cartoon world of The Jetsons might look in real life, 100 years after the 1962 series debut.


IBM / Dispatches from a Smarter Planet

Viewers of the 2014 Masters Tournament witnessed something bold, unprecedented and slightly insane. Rather than filling its weeklong schedule with another blanket three-spot campaign, IBM ran 64 individual spots that ran just once. This continuous stream of content would make sticking around for the marathon of IBM commercials almost as interesting as the golf.

Clio Awards / Creative Liberation Intelligence Organization [CLIO]

The Clio Awards wanted to stand out from other awards shows as they introduced a new suite of nontraditional categories. So we parodied this emerging trend by uncovering an elaborate multichannel ruse of our own—a clandestine operation that was keeping surveillance on advertising creativity. 


IBM Midmarket / How Not To's

Instead of running boring ad banners about IBM’s software solutions for mid-sized businesses, this comic series with Gizmodo took the opposite approach.


IBM PopData / Birth of a Trend: Steampunk

Analytics can be boring. Except when it's applied to things that people really care about. Enter ‘Pop Data.’ Using social sentiment analysis, IBM discovered that Steampunk, a curious, fashion trend born from sci-fi, was poised to bust out into mainstream retail. IBM set their offbeat prediction to this eccentric infographic. Soon the prediction and the trend-spotting technology was all the rage:

Clean Energy Works / CO2NSEQUENCE

When a coalition of environmental groups wanted to rally the youth vote for climate reform, CO2sequence was born.  We blanketed college campuses with stickers, posters and newspaper ads that would encourage environmentally-minded students to rise up in in support of clean energy legislation.

EARTHSTOCK
VIRTUAL CLIMATE RALLY - INNOVATION

Earthstock used social media APIs and a playful physics engine to remove the barriers of time and distance in attending a political rally. Anyone with a Facebook or Twitter account could gather at the foot of the virtual U.S. Capitol building with a simple post or a tweet—and together put pressure on Congress to pass climate legislation.



Bud Light / here4BL.com: THE GAME
 

To expand the "I'm Just Here for the Bud Light" campaign beyond TV, this national photo-sharing competition rewarded public displays of affection for Bud Light.


YELLOW TAIL / HAVE YOU SPOTTED IT?
 

To help a new quirky wine label named Yellow Tail catch the eye of young, trend-spotting urbanites, we paired simple rebuses with a quizzical headline, “Have you spotted it?" and placed them in stylish magazines and around cool New York neighborhoods. Sales took off and the Australian wine would become the #1 import in the US. 


SAPPORO / SAMURAI TV :30

With a win at the AICP Show, this spec project became part of MoMA's permanent film archive.


CDNOW / IF WE'VE GOT THIS

Before the iPod changed music, and when Amazon was only for books, CDNOW.com was the go-to-place for hard-to-find music. To make the point, our ads shined a spotlight on the most obscure, absurd and irritating music selections we could find from their inventory of 50,000 albums.

OMNIPOINT WIRELESS / EA BILLBOARD

Way back when analog cell phones were a thing, this interactive billboard concept promoted a novel feature on Omnipoint’s digital network: texting.

MINING COMPANY

The Mining Company didn’t stand a chance against Google, but my first digital ad was also my first work to make it into the One Show.
