HUMAN NATURE

Content Creation for Løre Originals

The aim was to create a modern and sophisticated visual language that is effortlessly authentic yet compelling. We celebrate the pureness of the product. So we translated it into an easy but chic set design, that plays with structure and nature. To bring the unisex into the pictures we chose to work with people that are male & female, international, and styled as pure as the product itself.

We show the plain beauty. But with respect for humans and nature. White and light grey marble built the base of our idea. A reduced set design with water and plants has given this setting a natural and easy going touch.

FREE YOUR PHONIE

Social Media Campaign for Phonie

There’s a new it piece in town – the smartphone necklace. Not only to protect your phone but to make it also look sexy. The idea of the shoot was to stage the models and products as easy as the product itself. So we created a colorful und reduced visual language that looks like snapshots and funny moments.

To bring more authenticity and spontaneity into the pictures we chose to work with ballet and urban dancers and one athlete. The pictures and small films were created for social media, website and brand shop.

In addition to the pictures we created a couple of super short and super easy films for Instagram. #freeyourphonie
