Role: Art Direction and Creative Strategy
Project Type: Marketing Concept, Strategy
Proposing to run a branded campaign surrounding the Season 2 premiere of Mr. Robot was a no-brainer for The Daily Dot. Our coverage of cybersecurity, net neutrality, and internet politics perfectly aligns with the show's themes. We put together a six-figure sponsorship package highlighted by a fake ad campaign for the show's corporate antagonist E Corp and a subsequent "hack" of our site by fsociety on the day of Mr. Robot's Season 2 premiere.
Our idea was complex. A clear and direct presentation was paramount, not only through great mock-ups, but also by capturing the show's aesthetic. We needed to demonstrate that we deeply understood Mr. Robot's vernacular and its cultural relevance in the internet era.

We also wanted to align Mr. Robot with our July 4th #InternetFreedomWeek series exploring the issues, thought-leaders, activists, and policies that allow the interet to thrive as a free and open source of information and communication.
