The New England Aquarium asked us to create a campaign that would drive traffic to their penguin exhibit. Upon interviewing their team of aquarists, we realized that penguins are very much like humans. They’re individuals, each with his or her unique personality. So we leveraged this insight and came up with the ‘80 Penguins 80 Personalities’ campaign which is centered around five real birds at the Aquarium: Lillico, the diva; Chile & Argentina, the couple; Plum Pudding, the bad boy; and Roast Beef, the ladies’ man.
The campaign blanketed Boston, with a station domination at Park Street, taxi tops, bus shelters, OOH and lamp posts. An online campaign ran on Boston.com and can be viewed here. The Aquarium even turned the ads into posters for sale at the gift shop.
We created the Bread Art Project for the Grain Foods Foundation to help increase awareness of the growing hunger problem in our country — and the role of bread in finding a solution. In 2009, our visitors created more than 25,000 pieces of Bread Art for our galleries and helped to raise over $25,000 for Feeding America. In 2010, we raised $50,000 for Share Our Strength, the leading national organization working to end childhood hunger in America.
In addition to raising awareness and money, the Bread Art Project has been recognized by many organizations and has won awards that include a Gold at MITX and a Silver at Hatch. Full Credits for the digital experience can be found at Creativity.
My former partner Bo made a video showing how we made the digital museum site and how it works. Check it out here.

And if imitation truly is the sincerest form of flattery, then I’m flattered by these things. Incidentally they’re both pretty awesome and creative (disclaimer: I was not involved with the production of the following two links).

Floe is an interactive experience where users can discover how their everyday actions affect the environment. More importantly floe shows people how easy it is to make small life changes that make a big difference.
Not only has the floe site and its surrounding campaign been successful in teaching people about their carbon footprints, it has also been recognized by a number of organizations, including:
Merit: One Show Interactive
Best of Show: MITX
