The backstory

It’s crucial to use cleaner energy today—what we do right now will impact generations to come. That’s why Shell wanted to showcase five clean energy efforts from around the world by collaborating with five global music artists. They created an anthemic song and an inspiring music video; they just needed a hub where people could watch, learn and ultimately share the message. That’s where we came in.

The execution

In partnership with Oath Ryot Studios, we built the experience within Shell’s “Make the Future” Tumblr site to engage their audience and attract do-gooders already hanging out on Tumblr. Users navigated a custom WebGL globe to learn more about the clean energy efforts happening in the U.S., Brazil, Kenya, India and China. Each initiative was represented by an inviting 3D model, a glowing pin and a spotlight. Shareable videos spread the word about the global movement that was helping the Earth and everyone who lives here.

“We were dedicated crafting a beautiful charming, miniature version of the Earth to demonstrate the efforts happening around the world.”

The experience was stunning to say the least: shadows moved across the globe to signify day and night, while 3D planes and boats traveled along defined routes.
