PayPal is an American company operating a worldwide online payments system that supports online money transfers and serves as an electronic alternative to traditional paper methods like checks and money orders.

With the goal of strengthening the brand in the lifestyle and fashion segment and become top of mind in online payments, we created the campaign “PayPal moments”. The partnership was build through Social Media Influenser - PayPals newsletter and selected Lifestyle brands.

We created two campaigns for PayPal; 
one regular newsletter with a Gif-AD and 
one concept newsletter with visual content that was powered by two influensers on social media.

We offered the same but increased 718% (from 9200 USD in turnover -> 67922 USD in 5 days).

PayPal moment was distributed to 2,800,000 million subscribers through PayPal as well as selected influenser to push the campaign.
 Now FWB creates PayPals campaigns every quarter.

Opened in 1863, Berns is one of the oldest entertainment establishments and hotels in Stockholm. Stockholmers have come to consider the house and it’s venues their very own living room housing a hotel, two restaurants and nightclubs.

Challenged by Berns to activate areas that are slow off-season and during weekdays, FWB delivered two solutions.


In June 2017, FWB activated the hotel reception, in which we created a pop-up boutique with carefully selected Scandinavian brands within fashion, games, music, arts and literature. Visitors were invited to explore a contemporary edit of Scandinavian retail brands. Brands were invited to use other areas of Berns for special events, shows and meeting – bringing a multitude of talent under the same roof – hosting a space to meet both local and international likeminded creatives.


To activate spaces that were not used on weekdays, FWB connected Berns with leading training influencer Hanna “FashionableFit” Andersson. Redbull joined the collaborations as a sponsored and together we created a never seen before bootcamp in the unique nightclub setting of Berns. By engaging the committed audience of the profile, the campaign was reached by the +125 k followers of Hannah Andersson, and fully booked classes on the bootcamp.

Childhood’s work is based on the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC), and is politically and religiously unaffiliated. The mission is that no child should be exposed to a violent or damaging environment, but have the opportunity to grow up with memories of a safe and loving childhood.

With the mission to build awareness and raise funds to support the work of Childhood, we created a special Charity Collection with Happy Plugs where 3,50 USD per sold product was donated to the World Childhood Foundation.

To do this we partnered with artists who told stories from their childhood, explaining the meaning of colors and how they relate to the UN convention. The artists also performed songs exclusively which were published on a the campaign site

The campaign was launched at the UN Conference in New York 2016, and followed up at the Elle Gala in Jan 2017. The campaign reached it’s goal after 4 months, and were sold in 22 countries.
