  • Karma Cola – Donald Trump CampaignKarma Cola's philosophy is 'What Goes Around Comes Around'. If you do good, good comes back around to you. But, what about those who could do better? Donald Trump's first visit to the UK as President in July 2018 was to be met with vociferous protest and a media frenzy. To conincide with this, we created a social media campaign for Karma Cola which spread the message that ordinary people have collective power to influence those in charge to do good things. Using a Donald Trump impersonator and
  • Modern Rebels - Tools of Rebellion
    Modern Rebels - Tools of RebellionTo celebrate the launch of the V&A’s exhibition, “You Say You Want A Revolution? Records and Rebels 1966-1970” we created a digital campaign across a number of different platforms with the aim of engaging different age ranges from the V&A’s audience. The exhibition focuses on the five revolutionary years in the 60's when art, politics, music, counter-culture and violence exploded across the world.

  • Karma Cola – Christmas Campaign
    Karma Cola – Christmas CampaignWe helped Karma Cola launch their Christmas campaign along with their first ever set of London Underground posters. We decided to bring the culture of Sierra Leone and the message of Karma Cola to London whilst also subtly showing a different side to the Christmas that a larger cola drink company shows us. The image is a painting of Chief Hindowa Kamara, Chief of one of the villages that grow and farm Karma Cola’s Cola Nut. In addition to our Underground posters we created a series of custom c
  • Eastpak – Built to Resist
    Eastpak – Built to ResistEastpak’s communication had become generic in recent years, missing its outspoken voice it once had in the past. We injected the brand with some personality and reinvented their iconic statement Built to Resist. In a world of conformity, it’s the small daily acts of positive resistance that defines and unites people. This was the driving truth behind the campaign, which revolved around showing all kinds of small acts of rebellion that together created one large scene of positive resistance. Th

  • Esporão – A Fresh Perspective Campaign
    Esporão – A Fresh Perspective CampaignAssobio's grapes grow from high-altitude slopes in the middle of the Douro Valley. Whilst the Douro Valley is world-renowned for its wine making and its distinctive landscape, Assobio's vines, unlike others, grow in vertical lines instead of horizontal. Their unique setting gives Assobio its distinctive fresh taste. For this campaign we visually interpreted Assobios 'unique perspective' of high altitude, vertical vines. The campaign was used across OOH, print, online and social media. It for
