overview

Google is a brand that needs no introduction. This company is famous for its quirky, off-the-wall thinking — and the amazing results that come from taking big risks. In fact, Google nicknamed its team of innovative global engineers: the “Unicorns.”

strategy & goals

When the 2020 pandemic forced Google to go virtual overnight, that meant the company had to bring its team together in more creative ways. Normally the Unicorns collaborate in person to come up with Google’s innovative solutions. Of course, the pandemic had other plans. To show its appreciation for this team of hardworking thinkers and doers during hard times, Google partnered with Boundless to create “The Unicorn Box.”

  • Feel-good massage balls
  • Bright ring lights
  • Unicorn sticky notes

The fun, quirky, and colorful box helped The Unicorns keep on shining, even in the midst of a global pandemic. It was such a hit that Boundless is working on unisex unicorn hoody blankets for Google — complete with unicorn horns, of course.
