Launching a new MVNO – grid mobile
Aug 2019 – grid mobile is young, loud and proud. Offering a fully-loaded loyalty programme geared towards a variety of lifestyles. The new telco is the latest kid on the competitive consumer telecommunications block. No contract? Yawn. A free mobile plan? Keep talking. With bill rebates, cashback and merchant offers, grid mobile is the telco that dares to say they pay subscribers to live larger.
From conceptualising the brand’s identity and charting its narrative to plotting its big reveal, we’ve been given the licence to be audacious, daring and playful. Bending advertising conventions to enter with a bang, we kicked things off with a contest to win a lifetime free mobile plan. And it’s been so much fun seeing what people will do to #mintmymobile and win.
Helping brands bridge the gap between online and in-store experiences
Jul 2019 – What’s better than do? Share, of course! For our latest industry sharing session – this time partnering Edgeworks and The Co. Duxton – we helped a roomful of business owners and marketers explore the value of having a seamless experience from online to in-store: From digital banners to visual merchandising to getting a boost from a POS system’s data. Attendees learnt how to leverage the possibilities yielded by omnichannel to level up CX journeys, juice up their brand and imagine the future of their business. This was followed by opportunities to network, collaborate and dream bigger.
Bringing people, brands and possibilities together: That’s our passion. Sign up for our newsletter if you’d like to know when our next shindig is happening!

Unbox Thailand with Tourism Authority of Thailand
Jul 2019 – Stoked to work with the Tourism Authority of Thailand on the #UnboxThailand campaign, a challenge to Singaporeans to break free from the usual Thailand itinerary. Our recently wrapped campaign cuts across 4 themes – Adventure, Nature, Gastronomy and Wellness – and brings to life the incredible journeys that await…if you choose to break from the status quo.
Given the objective of driving awareness of less travelled destinations in Thailand, our display ads bagged over 9 mil. impressions, with a CTR that more than doubled average benchmarks, while outstream video ads garnered 340K completed views. The success story continues on social, where our creatives engaged and surpassed the estimated number of clicks by almost 212%.
We’re Accenture’s 1st!
Feb 2019 – What a way to make an impression! This year Accenture broke tradition by appointing a creative agency for their ang bao design. And they picked us! To capture the spirit of Chinese New Year and Accenture’s innovative spirit, our design features peony flower prints with a touch of gold and a QR code that lands customers on a custom greeting.
The leading global consulting firm’s red packet’s design is another example of traditional designs making the leap into digital.
Welcome the Year of the Pig with a Peranakan kebaya-inspired ang bao design
Feb 2019 – For our ang bao design for Schroders this year, we break tradition by going back to another tradition. Drawing inspiration from the colourful Peranakan culture – which blends Chinese and Malay influences – our design stands apart from the typical ones with de facto reds.
This year’s ang bao is also a major departure from all other ones we’ve designed for Schroders in the past, with its play on bright contrasting colours that made it the talk of the town. Besides tradition, we also incorporated technology by pairing it with a digital colouring game. Who says tradition cannot be innovative?
