asian american federation!

Being asked “where are you really from” is yet another way the AAPI community can be made to feel othered by people in their own hometown. 

In response, we flipped the question around, and created a travel poster inspired series, “I’m REALLY From” to instead, champion belonging. We interviewed 10 Asian Americans from NYC and other cities around the United States and paired them each with an illustrator to depict the cities they grew up in with the vibrancy, color and joy they deserve.

Each poster is filled to the brim with details our interviewees shared about their hometowns, memories, family traditions, and elements they associate with home.

On Instagram, we dove deeper into the stories of our subjects, their perspective on the question “where are you really from?”, and the details that can be found in their posters that were taken from their lived experiences.


After every Instagram In-Feed post, we concurrently uploaded Instagram Stories detailing the items and locales that make home home for our interviewees.

ENPHASE!

Solar energy has been this out of reach interstellar object for so many years, accessible only to few.

But no longer.

Now it’s easier than ever to harness the power of the sun in your hands with the Enphase IQ8 Microinverter, which allows you to not only generate solar power, but also to use it, save it, and sell it; without being reliant on the archaic centralized power grid.

Topo chico hard seltzer!

In a category that’s generally perceived as basic or bro-y (bro-esque?), how does a legendary 125-year-old Tex-Mex brand with a cult following launch a hard seltzer? By celebrating with other legends. Real-life local legends who, like Topo Chico Hard Seltzer, do things their own way.

Our casting sessions took us all across Texas, and ran the gamut from costumed luchadores to beekeepers to competitive axe throwers to roller derby champions to mariachi composers, ultimately leading us to three of the most legendary people in the whole state.









But wait, there’s more!

We gave people the chance to send some much-needed comfort and affection to the people they care about the most, in the cheesiest way possible—by sending noods (not nudes).

The huge integrated campaign centered on a website where people could send noods (free Kraft Macaroni and Cheese) to someone they love.
