Motion Poems 'Working Order'
Our work with the Motionpoems Foundation allowed us to make our most evocative spot to date. Tasked with creating a visual interpretation of a selected poem, our team put a lot of heart and soul into this project. Allowed full creative freedom, we loved running with our imaginations and pushing the envelope with striking hand-painted imagery and hints of psychedelia. The result is an interpretation of Dora Malech’s ‘Working Order’ that takes the viewer on a surreal, exploratory journey into a woman’s introspective psyche.

"We approached this project with a desire to blur the lines between commercial design and traditional art, which resulted in us also blurring the lines of mediums and aesthetics."
Some of our
'(F)aking Of '
We always love a good behind the scenes, or a beautiful making-of video. We had a little fun after we completed this piece and because we had such an incredible time making it, created a 'Faking Of' that embodies just that. Really though, a magician never reveals his secret. But if you ask we'd love to talk about it.
