Stuff we created  | 7 projects
 
We don't just pride ourselves with work we do for various clients. More often than not, we find the time to follow our heart and produce things that come from the inside. They are usually pro-bono pieces of work for certain communities, or the whole country, dedicated to improve the quality of life, be it though a game, a website, or even a national monument.
 
Love your own
Created in Kosova in Sep 2011
 
"Duaje tënden" (Love Your Own) is an initiative in kooperation with Lëvizja VETËVENDOSJE! (Self-determination Movement) aimed to promote local produce.

Visit Facebook page.


We designed and produced hundreds of thousands 3cm stickers, which were placed in local products all over the stores and supermarkets in Kosova, through 20,000 young activists of the movement.

The campaign's aim was to promote local economy, by identifying local produce, thus increase the sales, production and potentially create jobs. It echoed throughout the country within hours and within months results have shown decrease in import of goods that can be replace by home produce. Many manufacturers incorporated this symbol in their packaging, thus making the campaign perpetually ongoing.
 
 
Where to go?
Created in Albania & Kosova in Jul 2011
 
This website is our own initiative to contribute to the Albanian online online services, which lack content in many different fields.

We realized that there is very little information about various events in Kosova, be it a concert, a show, or even a live gig in a bar. Most of this information is usually relayed in social media, mainly Facebook, often not easy to find, unless you are specifically invited.

We decided to create kahmeshku.com ("Kah me shku?" means "Where to go?"), an events website that will serve exclusively to show events and venues in Kosova, soon to cover Albania, too.

NEWBORN Monument   
Created in Kosova in Feb 2008
 
Only 11 days before the actual day, we came up with an idea that would add to the celebration event for the biggest day in the country’s history - The Declaration of Independence. The challenge was to avoid any instance that would uproar the crowd but would still provide a joyful manifestation that would mark this historical day.

Read Wikipedia article.
See Facebook page.


The Solution
We created the giant sculpture, spelling the word "NEWBORN", that is made out of steel frames wrapped around by 4mm-thick metal sheets. Each letter is 3 meters high by 1 meter deep and weighs roughly 1 ton. It is painted with durable yellow metal paint that is resistant to all elements. The entire installation is 24 meters long.


We chose the word NEWBORN to encapsulate in one word everything that the independence was going to bring to the country. We intentionally used English to globally pass on the message of the "newest" country being born.


We then turned this word into an interactive sculpture, to mark this event with a symbol that would be part of this day and the people that gathered around it. This would be used as a tool for the people to express all their emotions via the black permanent markers, which we provided during the event. This took place on February 17, 2008.



The Results
Over 150,000 people wrote on the sculpture, starting with the President and the Prime Minister. Those meaningful signatures became art. The media coverage spanned throughout the world.


Hundreds of thousands of people witnessed it, millions saw it on TV. CNN and other major networks covered it live. The sculpture also made it to the front page of The New York Times, and was mentioned in other newspapers such as The International Herald Tribune, The Observer, Sydney Herald, etc., while the BBC, Spiegel Online and others featured it on their websites. As a result, the media worldwide refers to Kosovo as the "newborn country".


Today, this sculpture has become the Monument of the Declaration of Independence of Kosova.
