A mural of 17,500 square meters that the Zippo Manufacturing brand created in East London, in collaboration with urban artist Ben Eine and Global Street Art, received more than 11 million visits on various platforms. Another collaboration of this agency with the Italian Fendi achieved four million visits on YouTube.
