TBWA\SMP was also awarded the only Custom Typography Bronze metal for its work ‘Recyclable Recycled Calendar’.

‘Who Will Take Care of Me’ is an online video created for the Hero Foundation Inc., which aims to raise awareness for the orphaned children of the heroic soldiers that fought during the insurgence in Marawi.
