Everyone knows what Whole Foods stands for: organic, sustainable, cage-free, high-quality food. After years of WFM being known predominantly for their values, people began rejecting them for being off-putting and righteous. Yes, people respected Whole Foods, they just didn’t like Whole Foods.
Truth is, there are a lot of reasons to like WFM -- their philosophy and values are just two of them. We needed to show people all the great reasons to like WFM, to convince people that it’s the place to find the best of whatever it is they’re into, from fresh-caught seafood and organic fair trade bananas to local craft ice cream and peanut butter you grind yourself.
Inspired by the social meme, Overheard at Whole Foods, our campaign welcomes in a broad audience by turning our attention to the consumer, highlighting the experiences and products they can only get at Whole Foods Market, connecting with consumers over our shared passion for food.

FIAT 500X • Reinvention of an Italian Classic
The Fiat 500 was born in and for Italy, but the 500X was reinvented for the modern world.
To parallel this principle, we remade the iconic Italian song, "Volare." By bringing together great voices, instruments and sounds from around the globe, we created a completely new take on the classic.
We filmed in 7 different countries, over the course of 6 weeks, recording all the music live on location.
The song was adapted by music producer Steve Lindsey (Leonard Cohen, Willy Nelson, Elton John, amongst others).

NY Knicks • The Knicks are New York, New York are the Knicks
With the Nets moving to Brooklyn, the Knicks wanted to make sure they took credit where credit was due. While the Nets could represent BK, there could only be one team for all of New York.
Sample pages from a proposed Knicks brand book creates a new identity for the team, grounding them in the city from which it draws its strength, creativity and inspiration.
As the team for all of New York, the subsequent campaign parallels the city it represents. Just as five boroughs come together to form one great city, the players too must unite on the court to fulfill a team's destiny.
