Optus »Clever Buoy«

ROLE lead design, animation & composeting YEAR 2014

Optus and Google have combined with M&C Saatchi on an offbeat (aka *genius*) R&D project to keep our beaches safe. The Clever Buoy project, which uses sonar technology to detect shark-sized objects in coastal areas before relaying the signal to lifeguards, is the first Australian implementation of Google’s global Project Re: brief platform to better integrate creative ideas with digital execution. Clever Buoy has gone on to win multiple awards worldwide for M&C Saatchi.
