Glassons

‘Made of Here’.

The attitude of Glassons, ‘Made Of Here’, has been largely shaped by the attitude of Australia & New Zealand women - bold, fearless, and comfortable taking on the world.

So to relaunch the brand we created a brutally simple idea that demonstrates this fearless attitude in a striking and memorable way.




The attitude of Glassons, ‘Made Of Here’, was extended into all parts of the business. From the designing & buying of collections, to how it’s embodied in seasonal collections, from our approaches to events, to store layout & design, from talent cast, to how we approach our own social channels & e-commerce platforms.

‘Live without barriers’.

‘Live without barriers’ is the lead in an installment of content that captures the unique spirit of ilabb people. A depiction of what happens when you look beyond and see the world from a unique perspective - without fear of external judgement. Free to push the boundaries and put yourself out there. To go within, see beyond and let go.

Shot in the remote sand dunes of Glinks Gully in New Zealand’s North Island, we follow the internal and external journey of New Zealand Olympic freestyle skier and TV host Anna Willcox. Snow is not a barrier as she ‘sand skis’ down 100 metre sand dune faces, the film oscillating between her conscious and subconscious states.











Taco Medic

‘It’s within’.

People, palate, place & planet are the centre.
Their make up, passion and cause. Bringing soul back to fast food.

This belief is within us all.
We believe ‘it’s within’.

Bringing the best influences from Mexico, and fuse with the unique New Zealand spirit. An empowering belief that we have brought
the best produce, grown on the best landscape, cared for by the best
people to be brought in-store and embodied within every one of the dishes & within our unique experience in all our Taco Medic stores.

In this filmic approach we show that all these origins are connected through a multi-sensorial film, using scale &
compositions to embody this connection.

A demonstration of all that is within our cause. The film is sensual, tactile, grand, intimate, inspiring, empowering & finally appetising. Aligning humanity and environment to be connected as one.
Fused with the elemental quality of earth, wind, fire & water.

Shot in the beautiful west coast of South Island in New Zealand.

Each scene is almost a response to the next. Response to the sense, response to the environment, response to humanity, response from the start to end.

Capturing all is connected & within.







Virgin

‘When colours unite.

At Virgin Australia as Executive Creative Director. We launched a new Purpose & Values for the Virgin Airline group (Virgin Australia, Velocity, Tigerair, VA Regional, VA Freight).
In which we launched a huge program of work both internally & externally, which acted & embodied the values. Aligning with the shared values of our staff & customers. A true inside out model of creative influence.

Most importantly the creative solutions & ideas moved beyond just marketing & communications. Creating and implementing brand purpose & values, in order to create business transformational ideas, in all parts of the business. From Corporate Affairs to Product. Service to HR.

An example of this, Virgin Australia/AFL diversity campaign (AFL partnership leveraging the partnership with share values of both brands). In which we saw that racism of a barrier for the AFL, the supports, as well as our Virgin Staff. We wanted to remove that barrier & uplift people.

Tiger Beer

‘Uncage’.


Born from the uncovered belief that ‘everyone has a Tiger inside’. We created a programs of work where Tiger inspires courage and fights doubt by championing an army of real creative people doing amazing, unconventional things. Aligning & unlocking the shared values of our audience & the brand.

We champion those who are unknown. Those with the potential to change the world. An unseen generation with a tiger inside. You might not know them yet. But you will. ‘Uncage’. Tiger beer.





As part of the program we created 'The Uncaged Nights,' to empowering our audience to realise their potential & uncage their tiger within.

Where the audience could take centre stage and cast aside their doubt, ‘Uncage’ their tiger within and realise their potential by performing their artistic craft at their local venue, against other artists in their community. This activity was roled out globally, across 5 continents.

Events where themed as open mic nights, freestyle rap nights, beat box nights, street food cook off.


Through social platforms we provided consumers with a digital map where they can find different performance/experience nights within their neighbourhood.
After the events content of the performances could be uploaded for further online engagement.

Example of one of ‘The Uncaged Nights’ in San Francisco.

In low socio economic areas we recruited local ‘uncage’ talent to design art installations to uplift the neighbourhood.

The result being ‘the uncaged’ are identified champions in their local areas. Tiger Beer & ‘the uncaged’ are physically transforming the streets they come from. After all Tiger Beer was ‘born from the streets’.




For the US program, Tiger Beer will partner with Hypebeast, the leading global authority on culture, in a search to discover creatives taking the music industry to the next level. Hypebeast hosted the contestant submissions, directing chosen finalists to perform on stage in one of three 'Uncaged Nights' events. Finalists chosen from each of those three performances faced-off for a chance to be featured at The Uncaged LIVE – an event bringing together and showcasing a clash of creative talent from all corners of the world at the famed Benedetto Marcello Conservatory of Music in Venice, Italy.

"Tiger Beer believes in the power of the arts, and the ability for it to create positive change in local communities, and ultimately, the world," said Amy Tay, Brand Director, Tiger Beer. "Through this program, it's our hope that we can uncage the next generation of creatives that are not only musically gifted, but looking to harness that talent for the greater good."

In addition to Hypebeast, Tiger Beer will collaborate with several other organizations to bring this program to life, including Imprint City, a local Bay Area non-profit cultivating art to vitalize the community, and 88rising, an Asian-American global music platform founded by Sean Miyashiro. The talent selected to compete, and ultimately chosen as winners, decided virtually by a judging panel consisting of Imprint City, Hypebeast and 88rising.

Behind the scenes


Flume

‘Hi, this is Flume’.

Hi This Is Flume as a film piece is a comment of an artist unburdening himself against his self-imposed boundaries and surrendering himself to the abstract.

Released with only 24hrs notice and busting a two-year music drought, Hi This Is Flume is 43 minutes, 17 track, independent whilst connected narrative of mind-warping beats and creative collaborations that sounds like one of Australia's most celebrated producers carving out his post-Skin career path in real-time.

In Hi This Is Flume, Harley undertakes a journey through inner and outer worlds to perform and then free himself from the process of creation. He is aided by his inner-self, a clone, and his outer shell, a heavily customised 1985 Nissan 300ZX. The film is part metaphorical narrative and part art documentation.

Michael co-directed the piece with director & artist Jonathan Zawada. As well as being Executive Artistic Director at Collider.

‘London Olympics’.



For Olympic athletes, the journey is long, the sacrifice is great, the determination is deep, to build to that one moment every 4 years.

It is common amongst all athletes the fear they face in this journey. The inner battle with yourself. The moments where the inner voices that create doubt. The barriers to overcome. 

The program stars a range of high profile Australian athletes in the lead up the games, shining a spotlight on the shared vulnerability, determination, effort, sacrifice and drive that it takes to win Gold.





Virgin

‘Now you’re flying’.

Virgin started as a low cost airline. Entering the market with the purpose of ‘keep the air fair’. But with the launch of Jetstar, Virgin were caught in the middle. They weren’t a low cost airline anymore & the didn’t have a full service offering. They had lost there purpose.

Along with the huge amounts of investment in product, we relaunch the brand, Virgin Australia, a full service airline which was to take on the establishment, to take on Qantas. Giving Australia’s a new alternative, continuing to keep the air fair.

With contemporary new planes, business class, lounges, it’s Virgin’s people is what makes up the airline.

Born from the idea of the belief ‘bring the magic back to flying’, we launched Virgin Australia ‘now you’re flying.

The idea was universal for football kids the world over and became a feature on nikefootball.com. The design was a playful big board, full of animations and videos. The platform created by LBi Copenhagen, was one of the first interactive & user generated digital platforms in the world & won Cannes Lions Cyber Grand Prix.

Melanoma Institute Australia

‘Take steps’.

The ‘Take Steps Forward’ film series is an initiative created by the Melanoma Institute together with Daughter and focussed on their annual family charity event – a 4 km Melanoma March across Australia in March. The films launched on broadcast, shared socially on social communities and on the Melanoma institute web portal. They are designed to foster awareness around Melanoma health and how positive, forward-thinking action and support can help create effective change.

The films harness the firm belief amongst the Melanoma community - patients, families and health experts, that taking steps forward together can effect change. Putting one foot in front of the other, even when it’s extremely heartbreaking. Making a stand against the disease in ways big and small. And making the journey to the Melanoma March event – to encourage awareness amongst the wider community about the melanoma disease and to help fundraise research efforts, towards zero deaths.

The four films follow personal journeys around the impact of Melanoma, as they share their experiences, heartbreaks, breakthroughs, and what life looks like living beyond a Melanoma diagnosis. One journey tells the story of a family who has lost a loved one. A second family has a loved one who has survived the disease. A third journey shares insight into a family whose loved one is suffering from the disease. And the fourth sheds some light on the medical, research and leadership team who are helping fight the disease head-on. In totality, the series of films are a message of action and hope. It is about every family who has been affected by Melanoma and their surrounding communities, coming together to support each other.
