“Forward” the latest HUMANSEVEN project for Citroën
HUMANSEVEN has been exploring different ways of working, creating and producing and has launched its own Content Lab: a space where the pace is reduced, pressure from daily tasks removed along with the ability to give sufficient time to take a big step back in order to find the right partners, produce, think and put things into question. The driving force being « Freedom ».
From this was born the Citroën « Forward » project.
One year ago the Agency presented a wild idea to the Citroën Client and proposed a completely different way of approaching and producing it. The story of a man face to face with nature in which the Agency was free to create it's own form and tone . The car is shown in a way that has never been seen before and the brand logo appears nowhere in the film. When confronted with the question « should we have a classic logo at the end of the film ? » the answer from Xavier Beauregard was « is it possible to have missed the brand ? »
In conclusion the Agency has produced a hybrid piece of work which is hard to identify or even name: in short an unidentified advertising object.
