Marisa Aveling - APT CB2


APT CB2 was the world’s first-ever crowd-designed apartment. People voted on Pinterest for items to go into 5 different rooms that came to life in real time in a NYC apartment.

Five Pinterest designers led the charge in designing one room each, with the help of their followers.

New items were selected to go into APT CB2 every hour, and people could then watch as they were placed in real time into the space.


I was the project's digital and social copywriter, coming up with social copy ahead of time and posting to CB2's social channels and responding to follower comments in real time.

We were awarded some things:

FWA Site of the Day - 2014

FWA Mobile Site of the Day - 2014

Google Creative Sandbox - 2014

Cannes Lions Shortlist - 2015

Webby Award - Advertising & Media - 2015

One of my first projects as part of the Mother family led by creative directors Mark Aver and Daniel Carlsson.
