Idea

Making everyone part of tomorrow

Shell wanted to inspire millennials with stories of human ingenuity drawn from their open innovation programme, and motivate people on a massive scale.

Speak to your audience in a way they understand

We invited millennials to experience, share and contribute to Shell’s bright energy ideas in action at Make the Future Live, a festival of ideas and innovation that travelled to Detroit, Singapore and London.

A festival of ideas and innovation

Blending physical and digital worlds, it has a 2.2km race track, interactive exhibitions on the future of energy and a student engineering competition. All of which express the human side of the Shell brand.


It’s inspiring and really incredible.

Note20 Virtual Media Briefing

Samsung faced the unenviable task of launching the flagship Galaxy Note20 to the media as lockdown swept across Europe. For tech journalists, access, exclusivity and hands on time with the device is paramount for writing the perfect story; however travel restrictions meant that the usual physical pre-briefing format was impractical.
