Oreo | Oreo Codes | USA

Oreo Cookies have been milk and cookie fans’ top choice for over 110 years. Since then, it has made a tremendous effort to become, in the brand's own words, "Milk's Favourite Cookie". Despite Oreo maintaining a 99% brand awareness across the U.S., there are still thousands of American households that purchase milk but don't buy Oreos—yet. "OREOCodes" is a commerce experience that taps into the minimalistic similarity between barcodes and a stack of Oreos to allow people to get offers directly from its all-time complementary partner – milk. Just grab any milk pack, flip the barcode and scan it! To identify every barcode, data was collected from several retail partners, managing to match every barcode out there with hundreds of milk products across thousands of American households.

Mastercard | Where to Settle | Poland

Following the outbreak of the war in Ukraine, almost 10 million refugees from the occupied territories have crossed the Polish border. Poland has welcomed more Ukrainian refugees than any other nation. However, many Ukrainians were looking for shelter in major Polish cities (like Warsaw, Cracow, or Wroclaw) which were already overcrowded, causing rental hikes, increased competition for jobs—all amid an unprecedented rise in inflation. It became evident, that to deal with the increasing stream of refugees, the movement had to be redirected to smaller cities. Places where life conditions might be even better than in big cities. Moreover, like everywhere else in the world, small towns in Poland are beginning to suffer from depopulation, as young people move to bigger cities. Mastercard – the brand that has social responsibility in its DNA – decided to act quickly and do it’s best to help Ukrainian in refugee crisis.

Plant Drop | Smart Plants | London

The air inside our homes can be up to 5x more polluted that the air outside, with toxins coming off everyday items like paint, scented candles, cleaning products and even furniture. Plants have air-purifying properties. This was proven in the 80s when NASA conducted research to see if plants could help clean the air for astronauts living in the International Space Station. This data was declassified years ago, but nobody has truly done anything with it. Many plant retailers advertise their plants as ‘air-purifying’ - but never go into the specific details about the pollutants and which ones can help clean the in our homes.

Plant Drop is an online retailer for plants. But they face stiff competition and exist in a saturated market with little differentiation. They needed a way to set themselves apart and steal market share, whilst also enticing a new audience into the world of plants.
