To bring this to life, Drifter built a 7 metre tall snow-globe at Customs House in Sydney, and invited people to step inside and experience the wonderland for themselves. This content was then used as idents across a number of Foxtel channels.

Lexus Driving IS Everything
In 2013 Lexus released the all-new IS. This was a major statement by the brand to combat the perception of Lexus as bland with a vehicle that is bold, aggressive and designed to inspire feelings of fun and excitement. The challenge was to build this emotional connection with people through a digital campaign worthy of this milestone in the evolution of the Lexus IS.
The all-new Lexus IS is everything - performance, design, innovation and exhilaration. With this bold statement our idea was to bring all these elements to life with a digital campaign on a scale Lexus had never executed before and indeed prove that the new IS really is everything.
To build anticipation for the launch and beyond, we created a cross-platform campaign ranging from a reinvented website, state of the art iPad app with augmented reality, a multi-faceted display media campaign and a microsite dedicated to capturing and sharing people’s reactions to the new IS.

CommBank Mobile Wallet - Concept Development
CommBank approached white to come up with concepts and visual directions that would amplify the current branding in a new digital mobile wallet. Myself and another designer worked on two different directions over two days. One 100% on the CAN brand guidelines, and one (my approach) pushing it.
The outcome is unknown. What seems to have happened is the bank took both directions and applied the thinking to their latest app (2014 release).

Fanta is all about "play" in the traditional sense and the idea of Fanta Funstigator is to get teens to "play" in the real world and reward them for it. Play games, challenge friends and drink Fanta to earn points towards cool rewards. Wherever there is Fanta, there is Fun.
So "Unbottle the Fun", earn points and have fun with friends.
There were a number of touch points used; Digital banners gave a playful introduction that lead to Facebook with a small number of points and a challenge for the chance to earn more. Print, packaging, outdoor and point of sale lead to Facebook and had an AR component that teens could turn their world Fanta and see members of the Fanta Crew. Using Shazam TV and cinema enabled users to find out more and download the app on the spot.
Pitched as an ongoing platform that rewarded teens for engaging with the brand, and constantly updated. The idea was to continually engage with the audience to reduce drop off. Every week the Fanta Crew sent a Funstigator challenge where the best entry was rewarded a prize and earned mega points towards the monthly leader board comp. New games, short animated films and other content were to be released over time.

The game, which runs across eight iPads, aims to teach children and adults about the challenges associated with managing Sydney’s water supply system and is the first deployment of iPads as museum gallery interfaces in Australia.
Co-designing with the community
We involved a diverse group of key stakeholders and potential users in the design process from the outset, including a core team from the Powerhouse itself, educators, and a number of passionate game designers and testers aged 7-10 years old. Through the collaborative process, we determined that a simulation game would be the best approach and iPads were an appropriate delivery mechanism, trumping the multi-touch table that was initially proposed and a number of other ideas that were considered, such as a Waterwall.
The simulation/management game would challenge users to maintain the urban water system for as long as possible to support a growing population of thirsty characters. The intention was to convey the difficulty of managing all the various elements of the system (including rain water into a dam, water pumping to a local storage tower, filtration and sewage treatment, etc) while ensuring gameplay and fun wasn’t sacrificed.
Prototype driven design & development
We developed the game with the coding team at Bonobo Labs using an agile and iterative methodology, creating real working prototypes along the way – a process which is great for all design projects but no more so than for game design. This allowed us to refine, re-think and ultimately make a vast number of improvements throughout the project and constantly explore and test ideas quickly. Critically the iterative model allowed us to prioritise features and remove the less important ones as time became tighter.

The Amazing World of Gumball - Backyard Bolt
ABOUT THE GAME
Gumball and his best friend Darwin are always getting in and out of scrapes together. Wherever there’s trouble, you’ll probably find Gumball nearby! In Gumball’s latest misadventure, his mum, Nicole, is chasing Gumball and Darwin through their neighbourhood. The boys have been up to no good and Nicole needs to catch them and bring them home. Help Nicole, riding a dog for extra speed, chase the kids as far as she can but don’t forget to jump over any obstacles on the ground and dodge them in the sky!
MAKING OF BACKYARD BOLT
After we got the go ahead for the concept the first thing we needed to do was define the game. There was further research into gaming mechanics and standards Garry and I created user journeys, wireframes and asset checklist. These evolved as throughout the design and during testing. Having made a handful of games this was the first one that I had been involved with that a creative checklist had been made and really speed up the process.
The Narrative behind the game is based on one of the episodes that had yet to be released on DVD in Australia. Through out the project we needed to have ongoing communication between the Gumball’s animators through Cartoon Network as we sourced as many assets from the show as we could.
The look and feel for ‘in-game’ had been done during the concept phase but there were still gaps. Scott Lawton (AKA Spader) was brought onto the job to work his design magic. Creating assets that stayed true to the world of Gummball, Defined a UI that looks like contemporary version of the kick ass retro pixel based games.
My favorite thing about the process was how collaborative it was. Garry had already started prototyping some of the game play and functionality for development whilst Spader was designing. This slightly more agile approach to meant that we could all see what worked and what didn’t a lot faster leading to more experimentation as the game was evolving.
