Zika virus is no longer a local Brazilian issue, is a now a global threat. The main objective of this campaign was to raise awareness around the cause locally and offer freely a new option to fight the Aedes Aegypti mosquito that carries this disease. Brazil has been bombarded with headlines against the Zika virus for the past few months. All major TV channels, radios, magazines and newspapers were talking about it.

Creative Pick: 2017 Muse Creative Awards Platinum Winner: The Mosquito Killer Billboard by NBS, Brazil

But the organized society, in an overall point of view, were not doing much to fight the mosquito and the population in general relies on the government to win this inglorious battle. The big idea was to use the only media that is on the streets side by side with the population, the out of home media, promote the cause and actually be effective to kill mosquitos on the way. After some studies we discovered that the totems installed almost in every sidewalk of the city could be adapted and transformed in the perfect media to release the project. Creative Pick: 2017 Muse Creative Awards Platinum Winner: The Mosquito Killer Billboard by NBS, Brazil

Adaptation Pictures by Billy Blue College of Design, Australia

Company : Billy Blue College of Design

Project Title : Adaptation Pictures

Category : Online Video | Animation

Country : Australia

To play on the aspect of adaptation, which is the main theme of the production company, I visualised it by having a shape morph into different primitives to progress through a path of obstacles.

As the logo consists of two triangles, one leaned against the other, I baked this into the animation by ending the piece with the shape morphing into a pyramid and merging with another.

Creative Pick: 2017 Muse Creative Awards Platinum Winner: Copenhell by TBM, Denmark

6stjn22tdar1gkwq

Company : TBM

Client: Copenhell

Project Title : Copenhell

Category : Video

Country : Denmark

In an apocalyptic future a man is searching for something. On his way through the wasteland he passes the remains of some of Copenhagen’s most iconic buildings (Queen Louise’s Bridge, Round Tower and The City Hall). He finally arrives at his destination at a dark and sinister looking place. He lights a flare, and the iconic wolf from Copenhell’s festival venue appears in front of him. The earth cracks open and hell breaks loose. Welcome to Copenhell 2017. COPENHELL is Denmark’s greatest rock and metal festival, which has drawn metal fans from both within and outside the country’s borders to Copenhagen since the beginning of 2010. The peninsula called ‘Refshaleaøen’ right in the middle of Copenhagen is the epicenter of these three days of hell on earth, and the raw, industrial surroundings are the perfect background for the brutal decibel bombardment from COPENHELL’s three stages. The theme for this year’s Copenhell is “The Apocalypse” and therefore a natural set off for the commercial.

Copenhell by TBM, Denmark

In the opening scene “The Scavenger” is getting a signal on his device and sets off searching the wastelands. To link the scenery to Copenhagen we placed iconic buildings from the city in the environment. The Scavenger is also the center in the print campaign for the festival.

Creative Pick: 2017 Muse Creative Awards Platinum Winner: Verner Panton Panthella Mini by Frame.dk, Denmark

Muse Panthella Mini 01

Company : Frame.dk

Client: Louis Poulsen

Project Title : Verner Panton Panthella Mini

Category : Video

Country : Denmark

When we were asked by Louis Poulsen to create a spot for a lamp designed by Verner Panton, we couldn’t contain our excitement! We are big fans of Panton’s style, so it was a great pleasure to work with one of his designs. The “Panetella Mini” lamp is a smaller version of the original Panthella lamp, launched in 1971. The Panthella Mini features a metal shade and comes in 11 delicious colours.

Muse Panthella Mini 05

The legendary Danish designer Verner Panton is known for his use of powerful colours, organic shapes and unconventional materials – designing everything from furniture to full art installations that looked, and probably felt, like an acid trip. Unsurprising, when you think that he completed a lot of his work in the 60’s. As a starting point, we investigated Panton’s aesthetic universe and commenced designing a tour de force of lamps, eye popping colours and abstract shapes, inspired by the man himself. We were also encouraged by Louis Poulsen to give it our own personal touch so we had the freedom to interpret the unique style of Verner Panton with a unique twist and establish a lighter, more contemporary tone.

Muse Panthella Mini 03

In the end, it was all about creating something warm, happy, alive, intelligent and playful – just like Panton himself. To create a setting for the lamps to shine (no pun intended) and allow the focus to remain on these beautifully designed objects.

2016 Vega Digital Awards Canopus Winner: Alice Through The Looking Glass “Wonder Mirror” by Part IV, United States

Screen Shot 2017-04-05 at 4.00.09 PM

Company : Part IV

Project Title : Alice Through The Looking Glass “Wonder Mirror”

Client: Walt Disney Pictures

Category : Innovative / Experimental

Country : United States

Disney challenged us to find a way to promote “Alice Through The Looking Glass”. We conceived a magical mirror, using cutting edge face-tracking technology to transform anyone into a beloved Alice character. We built custom kiosks that traveled all over the world, including a two-month residency at Disneyland. Users were emailed a photo & Instagram video of their experience.

alice_feature_test

‘Walt Disney Pictures challenged us to find a way to promote their new film, Alice Through The Looking Glass, at the 2015 D23 Convention in Anaheim, CA.  We had a 40′ x 40′ space, a blank canvas to build our own little corner of Wonderland.

We conceived a magical mirror, using cutting edge face tracking technology to instantly transform anyone into a beloved Alice character.

Our goal was to not just use a simple 2D overlay, but to fully transform the user with both makeup and 3D elements, tracked perfectly in real-time.  And create a cool shareable takeaway from the experience.’

p4_s2_feature_1920x1280_clean_2

‘We began by designing a whimsical Wonderland inspired space with plush grass, cobblestone pathways, mushrooms, topiaries, and costumes from the film.  To best accommodate the anticipated line for this attraction at D23, we decided to build four of our Wonder Mirror kiosks to minimize wait time.

Each kiosk had a larger mirror with a duplicate feed placed on the outside so friends, family, and passing fans could stand and watch same the magical results from users’ screens inside the kiosks.

With our designs completed, we partnered with Premiere Displays to build and finesse our vision into a reality.  The physical build for Alice began with dozens of artisans hand crafting our little corner of Wonderland.’

‘We quickly learned that this style of a fully immersive face tracking execution hadn’t really been accomplished before. There were several examples of just 2D texture wrapping and 3D paste-on head replacement, but nothing as robust and transformation we were envisioning.

After several months down the rabbit hole in research and development with multiple cameras, trackers, and hardware solutions, we decided to build own custom software to interface with raw facial tracking data.

This custom application allowed us to position our occluded 3D elements and pair them with our texture wrap makeup effects for a true first-to-market experience, and a revolutionary progression of a traditional “photo booth,” now truly allowing real-time augmented transformation.’
