Innovation sprints we've run in the past
London Fashion Week
We were commissioned by Google to work with Mulberry on making London Fashion Week more accessible to a wider audience. The aim was to bring Mulberry’s London Fashion Week show to the thousands of fans unable to attend in person.
Working in a cross-agency team over 5 days, we oversaw an ‘innovation sprint’. The solution was the proposal to install a series of 360 degree cameras, that people could access remotely from their devices. By logging into the cameras, fans were able to move between them, publishing any captured images to Instagram.
A series of prototypes to validate the concept, alongside a product definition outline - from initial prototype to final product.
Public Heath England - Food Smart
To enable the general public to build healthier lifestyles, by raising awareness of hidden sugars within food and drink.
Working alongside Public Health England, we co-created a digital strategy and app that scanned food and drink using image recognition technology, indicating sugar content.
Using engaging technology like image scanning to highlight the sugar content of off-the-shelf items. The app is now live and being promoted on TV in the UK.
Netflix - Virtual Reality Experience
Use technology to create Netflix advocates - creating experiences that encourage users to share and learn about the brand’s original content.
A Google Cardboard experience based on geolocation. The solution harnessed the power of affordable virtual reality to recreate famous Netflix original scenes - in their original setting at famous London landmarks.
An array of prototypes, videos, and promotional materials - that the Netflix team could take away to inspire them, and develop.
