Airbnb's Hackathon Merch

Airbnb's Hackathon Merch

Industry: Online Marketplace for Lodging

Use case: Event Gifting

Team: Ground Control


The brief

Airbnb’s Ground Control team approached us about gift ideas for their annual Hackathon event, where engineers are encouraged to submit new product ideas. They wanted great, practical merch with a commemorative feel, knowing that this would be a necessary motivator for submissions.


Our gift solution

We put together a bundle of gifts that hit the mark, branded essentials designed for everyday use. A multifunctional “GO kit” inspired by the Hackathon’s visual identity, with everything you need for a daytime excursion.



The bundle featured a Nalgene water bottle alongside a wallet, corduroy cap, tie dye socks and a card holder, all presented together in a reusable cotton pouch — perfect for hiking, biking, hacking or napping in the sun.
