Describe the brief from the client
Our brief was to find an engaging way online to enlighten consumers on the impressive sustainability solutions at FedEx.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
Since most people are completely unaware of FedEx’s recent environmentally friendly efforts, we needed an inviting way to get the conversation started. Rather than merely spotlight specific sustainability gains (such as their growing fleet of electric trucks and lower-emission planes), we decided to get users to interact with the brand and – together with FedEx – do some tangible good. Specifically, for everyone who planted a virtual tree within our forest app, FedEx helped the Arbor Day Foundation plant a real one.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
Visually, we created a lush, animated online forest world that would be welcoming enough to entice users to plant a tree featuring their very own face. We designed a user flow simple enough for people who preferred to just get in, plant a tree and get out. However, we also allowed room for others who wished to go deeper, interact further with the woodland creatures, and search the forest for their friends’ trees.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The average time spent on the site was an impressive 8 minutes. In addition, 22% of visitors returned to the site. In the end, we proved that just as the sprite writes out in pixie dust, “Helping a real-life forest is not a fairy tale”.
