Based on research by Dr. Charles Spence at University of Oxford, and their support, we created original sound track, “Sonic Sweetener.”
Because we naturally associate a specific soundtrack with sweetness, listening to the soundtrack helps focus our attention on the sweeteness in the food / drink, and that is why it feels sweeter as a result. Thus, it could help people reduce their sugar intake.

With more than 1500 people dying every year, Tunisia, has the world’s highest death rate due to drivers breaking the speed limit. Oilibya a regional Petroleum Brand approcahed us to do something about this. So we decided to put the solution in childrens hands.
The first ever mobile app that enables children to remotly monitor their parent’s speed when they are on the road.
The app links both, the child and the parent phones and notifies the child everytime his relative exeeds the authorized speed limitation.When the child recieves the notification, he would be able to record a voice message that can be played immediatly on his parent’s sounds system.
Texting while driving and even live broadcasting while driving has become an international plague. Truth is over 80% of accidents are caused by people using their phone while driving. Yet still, regular communication campaigns don’t deter youngsters. Because no matter how gruesome commercials about this issue are, young drivers still ignore them.
Because they’re ads.
So we decided to engrave the experience of watching a real car crash in young drivers’ minds FOREVER.
By getting them to watch someone they love die.
To do that we hacked YouTube’s live broadcast feature and broadcasted a 6 minute pre-filmed video of their favorite vlogger as if it were live.
The hacked broadcast generated record high results:
Over 2500 fans watched in real time
Fans sent in thousands of worried comments and “Aha-got the message” posts
By the next day 57.000 youngsters had watched the broadcast – a clear indication our message made an impact.

What made you start FruitBowl?
As a budding advertiser, I had a humble beginning. Post my management studies, I worked with a few companies and realized the fact that decision-making processes in big places were often a tedious process, I planned to take control and go solo. Cutting out unwarranted time on discussions and meetings, I focused more on getting result oriented decisions with low time slack. The result of putting this decision making to the test was Fruitbowl Digital.
