Giles Revell + Lexus LS Innovations + Team One

Giles was selected to be the visionary for a recent Lexus LS campaign by Team One Advertising, conceptualizing and creating imagery to highlight the new Driver Attention Monitor system. The system uses scanning technology to simultaneously detect possible collision risks and a driver’s head position and alertness, then warns them of the potential threat and can even bring the car to a complete stop. Utilizing similar technology, Giles envisioned the world through the eyes of a Lexus LS, creating a 3d rendering of a human face and mapping it to a digital model. By taking real data and abstracting it, he brings us from reality into the aesthetic area, illuminating what is beyond the obvious.

Julia Fullerton-Batten + Campari + Eva Green

Julia was just shooting actress Eva Green for The 2015 Campari Calendar. Entitled ‘Mythology Mixology,’ the 16th edition of this iconic calendar is the first shot by a woman and is dedicated to celebrating Campari’s colorful history.  Each month highlights the intrinsic stories linked to twelve of the brands most loved, classic cocktails.

Julia suggests that “Campari has always had an inherent ability to recreate itself and keep the brand image fresh, inspiring and imaginative – a goal I constantly strive towards in my own work too. This year’s theme was an interesting challenge, as there was an important job to do in terms of taking historical anecdotes and invigorating them with a modern edge. I’m confident we managed to strike that delicate balance with this year’s imagery.”

Below are some BTS images from the shoot, the calendar will be released later this year.

Erik Almas – A Cohesive Visual Language – Print + Motion

Erik’s work captures a cohesive story through both still and motion imagery, applying a similar visual language to each.  While shooting for Westin, Erik was able to create short spots that matched the tone and style of the images.  By crafting a tonal pallet prior to shooting, he is able to create campaigns like “Big 6,” where an aesthetic is painted across the ads.  This cross platform consistency creates a single brand voice within a campaign, highlighting a visual identity and tone to better capture a viewer’s attention.
