Dutch agency Onesize creates visual identity for final season of hit FX series The Strain

Award-winning creative studio Onesize, the internationally-focused, Amsterdam-based agency for distinctive design in motion, continues its strong dive into the US market with its latest project for FX Networks. The final season of hit TV show The Strain premiered last night (16 July), featuring a visual identity by the creative digital minds at Onesize, in collaboration with artist Susi Sie.

After creating the teaser promo for cult US show American Horror Story 6, Onesize was the logical choice to take part in – and subsequently win – the pitch on FX-series The Strain’s fourth and final season, directed by the critically-acclaimed Guillermo del Toro. Inspired by the series’ storyline – in which a vampire virus infects the human race – the creatives chose the theme of blood to visually recreate the nightmarish world of The Strain.

Inspiration was found in surreal paintings and graphic novel-style artwork, combining objects and liquids, and the team set to work in the studio to work on digital paint-mapping effects. Their search for the perfect footage of moving fluids brought them to Berlin-based artist Susi Sie whom they approached to collaborate on live action footage of fluids.

“Once we’d finalized the concept, we started off by shooting the live action content in artist Susi Sie’s Berlin studio” says Chris Coopmans, Art Director at Onesize, “where we first created laser-cut frameworks of the FX and The Strain logo. Then Susi Sie set to work with her box of tricks, which we shot on high-speed film in order to have full control. Once back in our own studio in Amsterdam, details from the footage were extracted and extruded upwards to create a more in-depth 3D effect. Painterly textures were then mapped on 3D models. Everything, except for the logos was later digitally recreated.”

Two colours formed the basis of the visual identity, with white representing the vampire blood and red for humans. The footage was crafted and then turned into an episodic package, which includes promos, teasers, count downs, in the show itself in between breaks, both online and for TV.

"We love taking the creative lead – but we strongly believe in working collaboratively with clients, artists, and wherever the creative brief takes us. We can take a project right through from concept to final rendering, covering art direction, design, direction, visual effects, editing, (post) production. This approach works, as validated by the fact that our last promo campaign for American Horror story won 8 awards – including six golds – at the PromaxBDA awards.” Kasper Verweij, Creative Director, Designer & Partner at Onesize.

Boy builds impressive world inside Samsung Space Max refrigerator in new emotional ad

Cheil Worldwide Ukraine has created a heartwarming campaign for Samsung's new Space Max fridge.

The ad, which features the strapline “More space than you can imagine,” shows a boy counting down the days until his father returns home from work on a polar station.

At the end of a month-long wait, the father returns to find his son has created his own polar world inside the fridge, featuring paper animals, machines and a paper version of himself. A “Welcome home!” message has also been woven into the scene.

The ad uses the insight that many people in the Ukraine have to be smart with storage due to kitchen size. The Samsung Space Max fits perfectly into the place of your old refrigerator, but can store many more goods. SpaceMax Technology has also made the walls thinner and increased the inner capacity without compromising energy efficiency.

Olga Kravchuk, HA Marketing Manager, Samsung Electronics, Ukraine, said: “In Samsung we truly believe that technology can help people to be more creative. With our new film, 'The Polar Story', Samsung describes how SpaceMax technology provides more space than it is possible to imagine: sufficient even for the creation of an imaginative polar landscape. Innovation and creative imagination go together in the modern world”.

Vladyslava Denys, Creative Director, Cheil Worldwide Ukraine, said: “Samsung's technology is designed to break barriers to make people's lives better. In this film we have continued developing the approach of emotional storytelling for Samsung in the home appliance category. People love stories. We wanted not only to tell the technology story but to do it in a way that touches people's hearts, too.”

Air France introduces “La gomme ą mācher” with BETC Paris

Relieve your ears during the flight with La Gomme à Mâcher, the take off and landing chewing gum.

As all travellers know, take-off and landing can sometimes cause pain in the ears. The cabin pressure varies and can block passengers' ears. The chewing action is enough to balance this internal ear pressure and make the travel experience more enjoyable.

The caring attitude is at the heart of Air France's concerns. To take care of its customers' ears, Air France has created its own French chewing gum “La Gomme à Mâcher” with the agency BETC. Two flavours are available, both embodying French-style pleasure: pistachio-macaroon and crème brûlée. The gum is made in France and 100% natural. With La Gomme à Mâcher, Air France is once again illustrating French savoir-faire throughout the world.

This new product will be available before take-off on flights AF066 from Paris-Charles de Gaulle to Los Angeles (USA), AF084 from Paris-Charles de Gaulle to San Francisco (USA) and AF178 from Paris-Charles de Gaulle to Mexico City (Mexico), on July 6th. The gum will also be on offer at various Air France lounges at Paris-Charles de Gaulle (Terminal 2E, hall M, K, L, and 2 F1, F2, G) and Paris-Orly (hall 3).

Agency TMW Unlimited is launching a campaign for INFINITI, the luxury vehicle division of Japanese automaker Nissan, which will offer 5 lucky winners the opportunity to test drive a real Renault Sport Formula One ™ Team car this October.

The work breaks on 6th July and runs across five key European markets – Italy, France, Germany, Switzerland and UK – throughout the summer, until September 26th. TMW Unlimited will be responsible for all CRM, web and social amplification of the promotion.

INFINITI has serious credentials in the realm of automotive technology, performance and engineering. As Technical Partner of the Renault Sport Formula One™ Team, INFINITI has co-developed an integral piece of performance technology in their F1™ car – the hybrid ERS system.

As part of this relationship, the brand is offering a series of exclusive F1™-related events to customers this year. This includes regional activity in the UK, with the chance to visit the Renault Sport Formula One™ Technical Centre on race days to watch the Grand Prix by video link-up, and visits to the factory in France where the Renault Sport Formula One™ Team engine is made. This will culminate into the Ultimate Test Drive competition – a unique opportunity to drive a real Renault Sport Formula One™ Team car on track.

“In celebration of another year of INFINITI’s groundbreaking partnership with the Renault Sport Formula One ™ Team, INFINITI is offering a once-in-a-lifetime prize – the chance to experience the thrill of driving a real Renault Sport Formula One™ Car at the iconic Circuit Paul Ricard in France,” said Phil Rhodes, Creative Director at TMW Unlimited.

The winner and a guest will receive flights to the South of France, local accommodation, exclusive F1™ driving sessions, and a passenger ride in an official Renault Sport Formula One™ Car, as well as a debrief and data analysis with the Renault Sport Formula One™ Team engineers.

TMW Unlimited will use fresh F1™ content from the regional events to support the core promotion. A 50-second video showing cars racing at speed, using hybrid technology, highlights the superior performance of the vehicles as well as the human feat of engineering behind it. This will be shown on digital channels and is set to a fast-paced soundtrack.
