Build An Design Invention Department Inside An Advertising Agency

I was asked to move from the CP+B London office to the Boulder office to start a new dept: Room for More Possibilities. My experience in the London office, as a Junior Strategist, allowed me to map the conventions of advertising and find ways to challenge them with new storytelling forms. The role of Room For More Possibilities was to generate ideas, to experiment and push forward CP+B’s creative vision.

What if we re-imagine what the connection
between technology and our world could be?
 

Create New Forms Of
Storytelling For Brands 

We created inventions for brands. As an invention design team, we worked on global pitches, brand innovation workshops and advertising campaigns. Our main clients were Milka, Dominos Pizza, Infiniti, Hotels.com, Kraft food and Turkish Airlines. The purpose of our inventions was to translate brands’ mission into real life experiences and products that would unlock people’s imagination.

What Did We Do?

We need more poetic technology because
nobody wants to live an ordinary life
 

Mix Design Thinking With
Technological Imagination

Our team was a mix of designers, strategists and creative technologists. Our workspace was used as collaborative space inside of CP+B. It was a place where our co-workers would often drop by. We helped them find new ideas and some fresh inspiration for their current projects. In addition, we put up posters around the agency to spark creative debates and organized CP+B’S Hackfest festival.

My Role?

Keep The Magic Alive &
Speculate About The Future

As a co-founder, my role was to build our philosophy, mentor our interns and direct creative ideas. While I was managing our team, my focus was about proposing another vision of the future where our relationship with technology can be more magical, human and surprising.

What If Sound Could Bring
Magic To Travel Moments?

We had to give a meaningful role to Hotels.com in one of the most emotionally rewarding parts of travel: Exploring. But how? - knowing that when we explore we spend most of our time taking pictures with our smartphones and never look at them again...

The Sound Capsule inspires a new and simple human gesture: sound catching. It invites us to recognize in a new way moments and mark them as special. Sound Capsule is an analog object that uses the poetic potential of technology and evocative power of sound.
