The Black Elevation Map


The Black Elevation Map is an immersive digital experience that reimagined the American landscape by taking cultural data such as Black population data, historical markers, Black-owned businesses and social media activity, and visualizing it as points of interest on a dynamic, searchable elevation map of the United States. The greater the density of data, the higher the elevation.

VMLY&R Commerce Mexico for Corona

Pickpocketing has become a regular occurrence in football stadiums across Mexico. This has made many fans wary of carrying money and other valuables, only bringing their jerseys to football games. When Corona noticed its beer sales decline at stadiums, it came up with an innovative new payment solution to sell beer while keeping customers feeling safe. Jersey Pay is a unique payment method that transforms a football jersey into a digital wallet. Simply add credits to the water-proof tag inside your jersey badge and immediately begin enjoying a Corona beer at a retail price, keeping the brand close to the hearts of football fans.

The Return Visit

return visit

41% of US adults delayed or avoided medical care over the past two years due to fear of Covid and an inability to access care. This shadow epidemic from missing care could possibly result in 10,000 additional deaths from undiagnosed breast and colorectal cancers alone. Starting in 2020, The Return Visit has been treating the fear to enter clinics in order to bring back millions of patients to the care they would not have otherwise received. The initiative changed the patient experience and fundamentally changed the way NYULH operates, communicates, and uses technology to care for patients and save lives.
