OUR WORK

Amgen & Osteoporosis | BÜBL FASHION

Bronze Lion| Lions Health: Pharma Lions

People usually find out they suffer from osteoporosis when it's too late - after they suffer a significant bone fracture. So, we took the invisible and made it highly visible.

Coop | Old Milk

Bronze Lion | PR Lions: Corporate Image, Communication & Reputation, Management

Food waste is a global problem, and Sweden is no exception. If people stopped relying on best-before dates, food waste would decrease significantly. What if we could find a way to remind people to smell and taste the food before throwing it away?

To raise awareness of this growing waste problem, we created Old Milk—a perfume that smells just like milk gone bad. It’s the first scent in the world that people can use as a reference to know when their milk is drinkable or not.

Shortlisted | PR Lions & Direct Lions: Single-Market Campaign

In 2018, tourism from New York to Hawaii was lagging. In fact, our research found that New Yorkers were taking fewer vacations overall, with less than 50 percent of them using up their available vacation time.

ASICS | BLACKOUT TRACK

Shortlisted | PR LIONS: LAUNCH/RELAUNCH

The ASICS GEL-KAYANO 25 is a running shoe so advanced, the only thing holding runners back is their minds. While wearable fitness trackers, music and scenery pamper the mind, inadvertently making the body more injury prone, ASICS believes in strengthening it.
