The Bola Pra Frente Institute acts on Muquiço’s, one of the most violent favelas of Rio de Janeiro. Created by 1994 World Cup winner Jorginho, the project takes children away from trafficking through sports and education.
In order to advertise the Institute’s work and raise awareness among the parents in the favelas, we have transformed the bullet holes there into billboards.

Rio Olympic Games - Judoka’s Passinho
The judoka Rafaela Silva was controversially eliminated at the London Olympics, suspected of trying to cheat. Since Brazil still deals with a lot of racism, the black athlete was a victim of prejudice in social media. Few people believed in the comeback of the judoka, who was born in a Rio de Janeiro favela.
But Infraero Airports, official sponsor of Brazilian Judo, believed her turnaround would happen, and that it would be at home. So they've created a new and fun way of cheering, inspired by the Judo movements as well as by Passinho – a street dance of the favelas – to create the Judoka’s Passinho. The video clip had the athlete's participation, became a media sensation and the results couldn't be better: Rafaela Silva won an Olympic gold medal.

The “It wasn’t an accident” – a campaign for a more conscious traffic – created fake criminal profiles to thank the users posting DUI blitz warnings in real time. The Operation Tweet had great media impact and showed how a simple tweet – an action that seems innocent– could create serious problems to traffic and to society.
