Duck Call

What briefly is your idea?

Quack, Quack,

Where art thou?

The flutter of wings,

That carry us together,

A flock into the sky,

To laugh, sing,

Make and break,

Unexpected dives,

Uprising soars,

Bringing us together,

One quack at a time,

Quack, Quack. 


A spam-free public social notification mechanism. Triggerred digitally and manifested physically. It works as a call for the pub, a company meeting or a spontaneous community gathering.


The duck is a hark back to our old canalside home. 


How will it improve our working lives at Wolff Olins?

Cultivate a social culture, reduce inbox spam and respect our spontaneous creative souls. 

What kit did you use?

A Raspberry Pi, 3D printer, speakers, lasers and Slack. 

Did you run into any issues?

Hooking the Pi up to Slack was a big blocker, we needed an SSL certificate. 

How would you develop this idea further?

Give it to employees to see how they use it.
