THE GOOD OLD DAYS
The Drum approached us with a creative challenge. Choose a random tech startup no one has ever heard of and create an ad for it (plus 100 word rationale). The catch? The ad must make the tech seem more human and show how it enhances our everyday lives.

RATIONALE

Tech is often designed for very practical application. So it’s not surprising that it doesn’t always come across as human.
