Robinsons and KFC at Wimbledon

Britvic-owned brand Robinsons teamed up with fast food chain KFC to stage an interactive window takeover at the Wimbledon Broadway restaurant branch. Guests were able to take part in a giant, interactive version of the arcade game Pong as they made their way to the Championships. Agency Savvy worked with the brands to create the touchscreen window display, which allows users to the tap the window to activate the game, as well as control their pong paddles using the touchscreen technology. 

Sky's Game Of Thrones stunt

Sky Atlantic celebrated the launch of Game Of Thrones' seventh season with a stunt that saw the show's infamous White Walkers roaming through the streets of Britain. Five actors were transformed into the White Walkers using specially designed prosthetics, as well as a team of stylists and body paint artists who worked to complete the look.
