Briana doesn’t think she looks like “Joan” from the TV show Mad Men. Who is she kidding? Not us.
Wieden + Kennedy completed a project in 2008 for an amazing outfit called FrontlineSMS.
FrontlineSMS built a free piece of software for NGO’s and grassroots organizations worldwide to communicate rapidly and effectively with geographically dispersed groups using basic text-messaging (SMS) technology that would withstand power outages and even natural disasters.
They needed a web presence and a logo. And both had to work on low speed connections and using only text characters (since many folks would interact with them only via text message).
W+K built both (http://www.frontlinesms.com), using interactive resources across the network. We got paid for our work. And we added some nice little twists to make it more useful for the constituencies using the product.
Thought you’d like to know that yes, while we also sell soda and sneaks better than anyone, we are partnering with folks who use innovative technologies to make peoples lives better.
