We are very excited to share Mark Zibert’s new collaboration with adidas and London agency, The Corner, to create print and motion ads for the launch of The Chelsea Football Club’s 2013/2014 jersey. The campaign did not show the jersey itself but offered a caveat in its title; “its blue. what else matters?” highlighting that fans don’t need to know much more than the jersey’s color to pre-order. Chelsea favorites John Terry, Fernando Torres, Juan Mata, Demba Ba, Gary Cahill, Petr Cech, Eden Hazard, Oscar, and David Luiz appear in the campaign that premiered before the Chelsea vs. Sunderland Premier League game. Be sure to watch the Behind the Scenes video and motion below.

Mark Zibert was commissioned by The Smithsonian Magazine to shoot an image for their monthly column “Phenomenon.” Inspired by Mark’s Fuck Luck Series, Smithsonian gave him the word “Light” and had him devise a way to interrupt it into a photograph. This is the first time Smithsonian has worked with a photographer on this monthly piece, which is usually done by an illustrator.

Mark Zibert’s new series, “Fuck Luck,” created for Applied Arts Magazine, deals with the idea that luck has nothing to do with creating great, inspiring work. Instead, it comes from hard work, dedication, and digging for inspiration where no one else is looking. Great work comes from attention to detail and unrivaled craftsmanship. No one looks at their work and thanks luck.
Luck is fiction.

TBWA/Chiat/Day NY and Mark Zibert collaborated recently on a probono campaign for AdColor, a non-profit organization which promotes diversity in advertising. The concept “Color Adds Depth” with 3D effects was concepted by TBWA creatives Isabella Castano and Ani Munoz, and produced by art buyer Julia Menassa. The still, motion, and sound teams all came together to produce three motion pieces and five still shoots with news-anchor Soledad O’Brian, QuestLove of The Roots, actor/dancer Harry Shum Jr., clarinetist Charlie Gabriel, and transgender activist Janet Mock. Mark utilized a stereo 3D shooting technique, capturing each image with two linked cameras spaced apart roughly the same distance that is between human eyes. In the motion portion, he actually spun Questlove and his drums on a gigantic turntable.
Mark was not the only person donating his time, editor Mark Paiva of Poster Boy, Visual Effects artist Sean Cochrane of The Vanity, and Sound Designer Keith Reynaud of Heard City all volunteered to make this project happen.
The campaign images below are being used to bring attention to AdColor and will be featured at their their annual AdColor Awards, coming up soon on October 18-20th in Las Vegas. AdColor aims to highlight the accomplishments of professionals who have championed diversity in the advertising, marketing, media and public relations industries. We are very honored to have been a part of this project and big thank you goes out to everyone involved!

We’re excited to announce a recent collaboration with PUMA and Mark Zibert, featuring Olympic athletes Usain Bolt and Shevon Stoddart. Earlier this year, Mark Zibert flew down to Miami to shoot the Puma-sponsored uniforms for the Jamaican Olympic Team. Designed by Cedella Marley, daughter of Bob Marley, Mark photographed her designs which are for the opening ceremony, podium, and race days.
What looks like a projection behind the athletes is actually a 12 ft x 12 ft LED screen, specially designed for photo shoots. Mark then used water on the floor to create a reflection, while allowing the cement texture to show through. The projection displayed both images shot by Mark and personal images of Jamaica from Cedella Marley. Be sure to watch both Bolt and Stoddart compete next week when the Track and Field events begin.

Mark teamed up with BBDO Toronto and The Canadian Paralympic Committee to shoot their newest campaign, “Unstoppable.” Aimed at potential participants in The Canadian Paralympics, this ad is truly inspirational. Shot in one continuous take on a rainy Toronto night, the entire set was mapped in 3d before the shoot for a quick and easy build. Be sure to watch the “Making Of” video below to see more.
