Nandos NANDO'S POPUP CART - A local marketing firm was asked to come up with a easy to use portable popup display to help Nando’s promote their newline of sauces. After deciding to use shopping carts that exist at all grocery stores the firm turned to us to design and produce a functioning prototype. We came up with a lightweight, self-contained, easily assembled, portable solution that was made of 80% recyclable materials which matched Nando’s look and corporate culture.

Sharkweek SHARKWEEK - Discovery was putting together a Gift Box to help promote their annual Shark Week shows. They turned to us to design Sunglasses and Hoodies. When they couldn’t find anyone who could brand 750 Life Preservers in 4 weeks, they turned to us for a solution. We then designed and vinyl wrapped the preservers as well as a few corn holes. Of course we had no idea how much space 750 preservers would take up. SHARKWEEK - Discovery was putting together a Gift Box to help promote their annual Shark Week shows.

NBA NBA EXPERIMENTAL PROPOSAL - Our client wanted their proposal to standout from the pack. We designed the proposal to be very tactile, using real shoe soles, shoe laces for the binding and texture lamination to get the look and feel of the basketball court. The final proposal consisted of a card set for a leave behind as well as the actual information and renderings books.

Confederation Cup WORLD CUP 2014 - We designed and produced various event support items for Univision, starting with the logo. Then we designed and produced one of a kind invitations. Univision wanted a interesting way to use 85 soccer balls they had hand painted in Rio’s “favelas”. We decided to create a acrylic Plexiglas base that represented the famous Maracanã stadium. That was then placed in a custom made window box with personalized invitation on the inside top cover.
