AMC's The Walking Dead Undead Carnival

The best dressed zombies were chosen by io9 editors to win a copy of season one of The Walking Dead. io9's promoted the Undead Carnival alongside Roadblocks for The Walking Dead.

Smartwater Purora

smartwater came to us looking for a way to present their brand as a showcase of style with substance. We created Purora, a rocking smartwater party centered around custom art to attract art-lovers and chic party people alike. Multi-sensory artist Ryan V. Brennan transformed Gawker’s NoLita rooftop into a glowing spectacle as partygoers took in the surreal installation, while quenching their thirst with cases of smartwater.

Silent Disco

Gawker’s annual silent disco invites people to dance the night away to the tune of their own music — literally. Guests get to rock out with their own set of dual-channel headphones, so they can tune into the event’s headliner DJ or a crowdsourced playlist. Social media-driven GIF photo booths, creative cocktails, and delicious food compliment the all-night dance party.

Hornitos and Gawker hosted a summer bash, with a few lucky readers, at our Hamptons Beach House.
