For the first time in 150 years, Canada had a vote in the American Presidential Election. Using a pizza poll, North of Brooklyn gave Canadians a chance to vote for Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump with their minds and mouths.
The best part? An anonymous dual American-Canadian citizen donated their vote to the pizza contest winner.

Star Wars Force Friday II
Force Friday II was a massive event that celebrated the launch of Star Wars: The Last Jedi toys and collectibles. Our challenge - getting Star Wars fans into stores for the launch of Force Friday II. We did this by gamifying the shopping experience and asking people to 'Find The Force.'
Through the Star Wars app, people were able to check-in at select stores around Toronto, and pledge their allegiance to either The Resistance or The First Order. The winning side would then be able to unlock exclusive content through the app.
The First Order used a mass out of home campaign to recruit new followers, while the Resistance predominately utilized guerrilla tactics. Additionally, both sides used recruitment tents. The Droids (later omitted) opted for digital channels.

Adam Helps is an app that connects you to nearby helpers ready to complete your various tasks. These helpers possess a wide range of skills, from cleaning to dog walking and everything in between. However, we wanted to stress that there are some things they just can’t help you with. We targeted different sectors of the city and spoke directly to what their residents would need help with most.
