John Lewis – Christmas 2019

John Lewis Christmas ads are something of an institution in the UK. They’re always big budget spectacles that come out early in the season, to really kick off the Christmas spirit. 2019’s example is no exception, telling the moving story of a little girl and her dragon.

We especially love how this entire story was able to be told with no dialogue whatsoever – such a clever way to make the emotional beats of the story even more poignant. Good news: You probably won’t need tissues for this one… but you never know!

Miro Denck – Design

Miro Denck is a German renaissance man in the visual field with skills in art direction, design, illustration and photography. Today, we’re sharing some of the movie posters he has created for a local cinema, Wolf Kino – an incredible opportunity to visually represent film in a very artistic, design forward way. These are not your typical blockbuster movie posters, rather – these are pieces of high quality European design.

We love them!

Pornhub – BeeSexual

Pornhub as a brand has never been shy to advertise and get itself out there. This new campaign they’ve created to save the bees is no different! To help save the bees, they created an entire section of their website dedicated to films of bees. For every film that gets watched, Pornhub will donate to charities that will help save the bees.

This video they created does such a good of explaining their thinking and how the project will work. Have a watch below. And don’t worry – it’s all Safe For Work!

Tinder – The Invention of Together

What a fun film! This piece by Buck for Tinder takes a cute look at human connection throughout the ages and makes the case that Tinder can help us reconnect with each other romantically without the strictures of decorum, social class and other things that have gotten in the way over the years.

We love the message and we especially love the art direction on this film. The soft, hand-made look is just spot on and the details included in this film are incredible.
