A GAME TO PROMOTE STEP-BY-STEP SOLUTIONS TO CHILDHOOD OBESITY

That’s the headline on Fast Company Co-Create website, diabetes and pregnancy I was very proud to be the Creative Director on this project with talented people like Neil Blewett Writer, Spencer Black AD and John Thai Design Director, plus many more.
We all created GOGOYU and interactive game that is powered by real world activity, the kids exercise and are rewarded with online time to play GOGOYU

To quote FastCo:

GOGOYU is set in 2032. It is a time of crisis, according to the game, because people are running out of energy. Children play GOGOYU by wearing a FitBit pedometer that is used to track the amount of steps they take every day. The more active they are, the further their characters go in the online game, which has the avatars doing all sorts of fun things like engaging in snowball fights and placing ingredients into a device that will spit out a virtual “Made in Canada” omelet.

Here is the trailer for the game

SMS to Paper Airplanes

SMStoPlane

Christian Groß quote:

I tried to visualize the text message communication between my girlfriend and myself. Since we are in a long distance relationship and living in two different countries text messages are often the easiest way to communicate. The challenge was to find a medium, more about which is variable and able to visualize the information of the text messages, but at the same time allows to keep the content private. For me the paper airplane was the perfect image for this scenario, because the text messages as well as travelling by plane are the most common ways for us to cover the distance. Additionally the paper airplanes were divided in two types depending on the length of their text. Finally, the paper airplanes resulting from this construction plan were placed in the room depending on the time when they were sent, as well as their emotional value.
