"The F-Word: Famine Is The Real Obscenity" TV spot

Created by Wondros, the star-studded 60 second PSA for ONE,  gives a verbal middle finger to famine. An endless group of stars implore the public to sign a petition calling on world leaders to end famine in Africa and conclude: We’re not asking for your money. We’re asking for your voice.

ONE is an advocacy and campaigning organization that fights extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa.


409 feet of love, fear, hope and Altitude

Altitude, a creative agency in San Francisco, was invited to design a 400-foot section of the construction barrier mural surrounding the new UCSF Medical Center campus in Mission Bay. Messages of uncertainty, strength, and hope from patients journal entries engage audiences up close, and at a distance, to help shed light on the experience of being young and in a hospital.

What they did is really inspiring.

Vac from the Sea



Electrolux spent several months to create Vac from the Sea, a vacuum cleaner built from plastic bottles found at the bottom of the ocean. The five models carry the names of the oceans where plastic originates. From left to right: North Sea Edition, Indian Ocean Edtion, Mediterranean Sea Edition, Pacific Ocean Edition, Baltic Sea Edition.

Although not available for sale, the vacuum cleaners are fully functional and use the same structure and technology of the Electrolux Ultra One Green-model. Electrolux partnered with many organizations and people engaged in the issue to collect the plastic from the ocean. One of the striking statistics is that although there is a shortage of recycled plastic on land there is plenty of plastic waste in the sea.
