Minutes Away, and a World Apart

In early 2017, Snoqualmie Casino launched "Minutes Away, and a World Apart" in the Seattle area. They leveraged a unique creative opportunity at the University Street tunnel in Seattle's financial district with a wrap that was designed to transport commuters from the mundane, to an immersive casino experience.

Using the casino’s actual interior imagery, they highlighted the unique architecture and beauty of Snoqualmie Casino, while giving commuters a one-of-a-kind experience as they disembarked from their train and headed to work.

New York City Archive

Stand on a street corner in New York City and get a glimpse into what that exact location looked like more than 100 years ago. The Department of Records and Information Services digitized one million photos of New York City dating back to the 1890s and featured them on LinkNYC kiosks across the five boroughs where those photos were originally taken.

#SushiSelfie

Grubhub wanted to celebrate food by creating a feature piece that would set the brand apart, get people talking, and extend to social media channels. Grubhub stopped passersby in their tracks with the creation of their unexpected, oversized, and one-of-a-kind rotating sushi encounter at the entrance of the Chicago Red Line station. Their impressive headhouse design inspired #sushiselfies – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
