Problem – The NGO The Baltic Sea Foundation Sustainable Seas is working for a healthier Baltic Sea which every year is affected by massive algae bloom. If nothing is done the whole ocean could die. Yet the issue isn’t prioritized by the politicians.

Solution – We filled a billboard with water from the Baltic Sea and placed it in front of the Swedish parliament. Just like in the Baltic Sea, algae started to bloom. During the course of eleven days the public could witness the transformation inside the billboard.

Problem – The majority of cold sore sufferers have lower self-esteem when a cold sore strikes, negatively impacting how they live their daily life.

Solution – Incognito is an anti-social app by the pharmaceutical manufacturer Zovirax that tracks the foot traffic of various places that we visit on a daily basis. The app uses reverse check-in data from users social media accounts, which allows the user to access different locations during the quieter times.

In collaboration with Matt Mackenzie during our internship at GREY NYC.
