Google Nexus 7: Fear Less
As part of the global campaign for the Google Nexus 7 tablet, we created a series of authentic, emotive stories based on the Google experience. The launch spot for the campaign, "Fear Less," is the tale of a young man who uses the Nexus 7 to overcome his fear of public speaking, only to encounter another one of life's great challenges.
Google Nexus: New Website
As part of the evolution of the Nexus brand and product line, Google asked Autofuss to redesign the Nexus website. Historically Nexus had been a single line of mobile phones and the existing microsite suited this product lineup. But as Nexus started to build a range of products including the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 tablets while at the same time continuing to launch phones, their site needed to scale with the brand. At the same time, Nexus was moving from a brand targeted at developers using the Nexus phones as a reference development platform to a brand for mainstream consumers. With this in mind Autofuss, in a development partnership with Redshift and UNIT9, re-imagined the product site as a full fledged brand site for the Google Nexus family of phones and tablets.

Google Nexus 5: Flipboard Campaign
When Google asked Autofuss to lead the global launch of its new smartphone, the Nexus 5, they were keen to focus on the camera experience. With this in mind, we worked with Google to find just the right opportunity to show how the Nexus 5 could capture the moments that matter.
Flipboard was the right medium allowing us to reach the target customer while showing off what the Nexus 5 could do. Enlisting the help of photographers and social media documentarians, Reuben Wu, Cole Rise and Annabel Mehran, we put together a collection of impactful photographs unretouched save for Nexus 5's HDR+ mode and Goole+ Photos Auto Enhance.
