Since then, they have created campaigns for Apple’s long-standing platform “Relax, it’s iPhone”: “The Hunt” features two of Canada’s most popular hockey players on an all-night scavenger hunt with the help of the all-day battery life of iPhone 14, and “Pooched” shows how the Emergency SOS via satellite on iPhone 15 can save you and your dog’s life.

Jason said on “Think Different,” “1984,” “Get a Mac,” “Shot on iPhone,” “I feel privileged and humbled to be working at the place that brought these iconic Apple campaigns into the world and that I get to contribute to this legacy of work.”

Derek added, “Working at TBWA\Media Arts Lab, you’re surrounded by people with massive talent all channeling their energy into making awesome things. It’s nice to be part of that.”
