Projects
  • Air Jordan- Melo M8 Shoe Drop
    Air Jordan- Melo M8 Shoe DropMelo had just returned to his home town to play for the Knicks. So it was quite a big deal. This also coincided with his shoe drop from Air Jordan. We went above and beyond to welcome him back to the city that made him and to spread the word of his latest creation. With A 50 ft dunking hologram on the Hudson including a surprise performance from Nas- we were the talk of the town.
  • Nike - Lunar Epic Footstep
    Nike - Lunar Epic FootstepAn epic shoe deserves to be introduced to the world in an epic way. So we set out to recreate a giant version made of light trails. Using a combination of technology, many late nights and the runners epic speed as a way to capture and create this massive shape from above.
  • Instagram Australia - Get Into What You Heart
    Instagram Australia - Get Into What You HeartWhen you really heart something, Instagram helps you get into what you heart even more.
  • Nike Lunar Epic FootstepTo launch a shoe like the Nike Lunar Epic called for something... epic. So naturally- we created an epic footprint made of light trails to show off all of its speed and beauty.
  • Levis - America
    Levis - AmericaDuring the recession, Levi's was in need of a new approach. So we didn't sell jeans. We sold independence. Taking things into your own hands. Hard work. Perseverance. Those are the qualities that connected back to what this country once stood for. Of course, that was quite some time ago..
  • WASO x Vivianne Sassen
    WASO x Vivianne SassenTo launch WASO by Shiseido we partnered with Vivianne Sassen to capture the essence of WASO. Art, science, nature.
