A&E's The Returned takes place in a small mountain town whose deceased loved ones reappear as if nothing ever happened.
The core of this campaign was to inspire questions, not answer them. Drawing our audience in by building intrigue around the show, only giving them pieces of what to expect.
Using unconventional tactics (interactive films, cinemagraph series, and cryptic OOH displays), we cut through the noise of traditional advertising to get the viewer to pay attention, look closer, and fall into the mysterious-supernatural-thriller-drama that is The Returned.

Estée Lauder's Le Rouge is not for the timid. This fragrance is for women who are as confident in the boardroom as they are the bedroom. She gets shit done in Louboutins.
Our objective was to impress these women of sophistication. From exclusive film festivals to immersive sensory installations to mysterious digital personas, our launch campaign had to speak to their established sense of taste while also presenting new and alluring ideas.
This is only a small slice of campaign book. If you'd like to see more, feel free to email me for a pass-coded site.

TITLE DESIGN CONCEPT
The challenge - What if Key & Peele were a groundbreaking dramatic series? What would its main title be? We need to believe this show is real.
We follow our disoriented heroes, Key and Peele, through a creative void represented here as a vast illustrative desert. They drive fast and erratically, the landscape blooms in their wake revealing mountains and plains. Their expressions blend over cinematic exteriors reinforcing the scale of their epic search.
The car comes to an abrupt halt; what they’ve been looking for has been there all along. We arrive on a wide shot of their vehicle, a massive Key & Peele logo sits on the far horizon.

An interactive touch display on smart glass featuring the work done at The Mill . The challenge was not only how to showcase The Mill's massive body of work as a complete and coherent portfolio, but also as an intuitive and entertaining experience. The solution - an endless nebula of nodes, each representing a project, searchable by brand, agency, production company, location, and time using the touch interface. Mill Touch is located at their NY office.
