Winter WONKA-land NYC

Willy Wonka's latest creation is a work of pure imagination: banana-shaped ice cream pops in Vanilla Grape and Vanilla Banana flavors. They come on a stick, and best of all, they have an edible candy "peel." We created a one-weekend-only winter spectacular, complete with real life Oompa Loompas, in New York's meatpacking district to announce the new treats, free and open to the public. Click through the slideshow to tour Mr. Wonka's creation!

Mr. Wonka’s giant purple hat, perched on the awning above the street, signals to alert passersby that something special is coming!
On opening day, an Oompa Loompa greets pedestrians, beckoning them to enter the Winter WONKAland.
Frosted Wonka signage announces the space in the storefront window.
Inside, visitors experience a taste of pure imagination, as they wander winding paths through giant snow drifts, with giant Wonka treats like these oversize popsicles.
Giant truffles, covered in snow!
An “igloo” tent makes an impromptus storage spot for cases of Wonka Peel-a-Pops.
A letter from Mr. Wonka announces the invention of the Peel-a-Pop (alongside his signature hat and longboat).
At an audio station, visitors can push a button to hear a chapter of the Wonka story.
Giant grapes festoon the walls, secret ingredients in the Vanilla Grape Peel-a-Pop.
Say Freeze!
Giant cake rolls stay cool in a snow bank.
Just like the everlasting gobstopper, Mr. Wonka’s truffles are extra-large.
The Peel-a-Pop is an ice cream snack in the shape of a banana. But unlike a real banana, the “peel” is edible!
A chocolate cake lover’s ultimate dream!

US Post Office Gingerbread House

Every year, the Farley Post Office on 8th Avenue in New York is home to “Operation Santa”. What better place to celebrate the launch of the USPS's new holiday-themed "Forever" stamp series, which features images of gingerbread houses? In the post office's famous vaulted lobby, we built a life-size gingerbread home.

Stay back! No nibbling!
You've got mail! The loving attention to detail on the house has everyone in the lobby stopping to look.
Our design was inspired by the brand new limited-edition "Gingerbread House" stamps.

Transitions™ Performance Park

For the CMA Music Festival in Nashville last weekend we transformed an entire park into an interactive promotion for Transitions Lenses featuring live country music bands, sports, lounging areas, and a very special photo booth. Step through the slideshow to experience the park:

The CMA festival is the biggest of its kind, with stages all over the city, and country music fans from all over the world.
We rebranded Walk of Fame Park in the heart of the city as Transitions Performance Park, open and free to the public.
Our fabrication team created these amazing giant sunglasses, complete with genuine Transitions photochromic film that darkens in bright light. Each colorful pair had a matching hammock beneath it, for lounging.
Bands and singer-songwriters played all afternoon on each day. Gwen Sebastian, Holly Williams, and the Marshall Tucker Band all took the stage.
Inside, an interactive photo booth stage offered guests a chance to get their twang on (or at least pretend!). Check out more photos online on the Transitions Facebook album.
Upstairs, a deck with viewing scopes offered killer views of the festival.
The bean bag toss, football toss, mini golf, and grass volleyball games were especially popular. Here they are seen in the early morning, before the crowds arrive.
