Client: Seattle’s Best
In early 2010, we were commissioned by an advertising agency in Seattle, Washington to do a project for Seattle’s Best, a division of Starbuck’s Coffee. Merritt was asked to fabricate 4 oversize refrigerators for a guerilla marketing campaign. These pieces would be on display for 6 months in 4 major cities in the western United States. They would be transported to different locations and set up for dispensing a new brand of drink. The interior of the refrigerators were rigged with special effects. When the door opened, a switch would trigger fog, sound and lighting effects. In addition to the oversize pieces, we altered 4 existing fridges to work as push carts for dispensing drinks.
