Based on the Chinese word ‘Chi’, the campaign focuses on the circulatory presence of the universe’s natural energy. Utilizing the flow of one’s inner self, the shades radiate colourful expression. With CHIMI it´s easy to choose shades.

“It’s so exciting to be the face of CHIMI’s new campaign. I love to collect sunglasses, and since CHIMI is a Swedish brand, it felt like a natural pairing! It was incredibly fun to shoot and I’m in love with the result” says Elsa Hosk, the front figure of the new campaign.

The idea was founded by Nineties Studio and FWB did the production.

Together with Unilever and TRESemmé we have created the series, Blow Out Chair where the biggest influencers in Sweden gets a blow out from TRESemmé lead stylist, Marre Hitti. Every episode is a unique tutorial and the superstar Roshi Hoss interviews each guest, this time the youtuber Margaux Dietz. The result is a fashionable, informative yet personal and inspirational way of selling products.

We wanted to match the Swedish lifestyle company, Airinum, that produces premium air pollution masks with a meaningful ambassador. We pitched this idea to an artist that has over 3 billion streams, Alan Walker. Alan is known to always wear a mask when he performs, which creates a unique opportunity. In order to make a change we collaborated with WHO (World Health Organisation) that receives all the profit from each mask sold. To raise awareness Alan Walker produced a song and FWB created the campaign film.

We helped Blue Billie to update their brand and create a new art direction. Everything from new logo to website, packaging and marketing strategy. To empower the launch of the new website we created a campaign that is up-to-date, rebellious but still flirty with their heritage to make it easy and fun to buy and wear jewellery. We have focused a lot on the story telling and each collection represent a chapter in the new story of Blue Billie.

This collaboration between Chimi and Sundae School, has been created with inspiration from the controversial topic of Tiger Moms. Launching the 13th of May, on the international Mother’s Day, this collection aims to highlight the topic of Tiger Mom’s.

She was a tiger when she believed in you, And when you finally reached your fullest Then you became a tiger too.

“Growing up, my tiger mom did everything she could to give me the best possible future. She always pushed for higher education, and made sure I was trained to be an honor roller.

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 whatcolorareyoutoday.com.

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.
