We’re happy to share that our in-house creative division, Future First Studio, has won OUTFRAME 2021 BE:CAUSE Creative Contest, making it the team’s 2nd consecutive win. The work is on display in Times Square and across digital billboards nationwide. The winning submission, “UP2U” is a digital illustration centered around the theme of food insecurity in NYC. The design was a collaborative effort spearheaded by our graphic designers, while the rest of the FFS team provided artistic input and feedback along the way.

The full artist statement reads: Sharing a meal with friends, family, or strangers is an opportunity to connect across a community. Food insecurity has become a prominent issue. We’re inspired by the gardens and fridges of NYC – offering waste-free spaces for community building, expression, and hope. Artwork dimensions dive into the layers of collaboration and initiatives. It’s UP2U, and all of us, to make a change.

“It is such an honor to win OUTFRAME for the second year in a row. It’s a true testament to the talent and hard work of our team,“ noted Valentina Elegante, Creative & Content Manager at Future First Studio.

The prize also includes donating a month of digital billboard media space to a charity of Future First Studio’s choice. Future First Studio is honored to display the work nationwide and raise awareness for this cause.
