Summary of work

We have more health education than ever and yet we’re getting sicker. One of the biggest

reasons for this? The office. Ergonomic workstation solutions company Fellowes, wanted to raise mass media awareness of this workplace issue and become an authority on office health. People know that desk jobs are bad for our health, but like smoking, knowing isn’t enough to change bad habits. To make meaningful impact, we needed a creative activation that would shock people to action. Say hello to Emma. Our work colleague of the future. She’s a life-size model of our future poor health, based on scientific research into current office working practices. Within 24 hours Emma became a worldwide cultural phenomenon, a meme and TV star, all driving unprecedented enquiries for Fellowes.
