The campaign focused on the Stand Red mobile app, which provided functionally to enable overseas fans to feel together as a family at game time, wherever they were in the world.

  • NYCFC Away Jersey
    NYCFC Away JerseyNew York City Football Club wanted to create a piece of content to reveal their new 2018 Away jersey. A rare opportunity to work with a club who were only 3 years old and due to the multi-cultural demographic of NY and appeal of ‘soccer,’ had a fanbase that was millennial at the core. This gave the opportunity to create something more aligned with fashion and music videos, than traditional football content. The challenge was to find an authentic role for Etihad Airways- their jersey sponsor. On

  • CA Technologies - Who's Behind You?
    CA Technologies - Who's Behind You?In 2017, CA Technologies signed a sponsorship with the Trek Segafredo Cycling team. As a back-end software provider, their brand had low awareness.
