For more than a decade we’ve been getting creative with Coach on a wide variety of campaigns and visuals, helping to further cement them as one of the leading fashion brands around the world. We’re proud to share our latest collaboration with Coach, bringing them one step closer to our hearts – this time we helped Coach with the creation of a new sub brand visual identity that is focused on sustainability, Coachtopia. Enter, Coachtopia It’s been a long time coming and we’re so excited to share all the creative work we’ve put into Coach’s new sustainability-focused brand, Coachtopia – just in time for this year’s Earth Day too! We’re extremely proud to showcase the wide range of creative collaborations we have worked on for Coachtopia, a brand that is putting circular fashion first through the use of pioneering production, technology and lifecycle concepts. And the coolest part? Coachtopia is all centered around a collective of Gen Z designers, influencers and activists that are all working together to make positive impact in the world. If you’re fans of our work, you may have already seen the Coach (Re)Loved ReMade advertising campaign that was focused on sustainability, where old materials were […]
One spring day in early 2023, Coach asked us to put together a crew that would be able to capture content across sixteen different sets, spread out across Gantry Plaza State Park in Long Island City, NY. As part of our BTS capture Coach also wanted us to interview and shoot portraiture with all ten of the talent that would be featuring in their campaign film. Add in to the mix that there was basically no time slots put aside for our work due to time constraints and we found ourselves having a lot of fun pulling people aside, chatting with them and capturing their personalities under seemingly impossible circumstances – one of our interviews was half done walking between sets! We put together two units, one that would focus on trying to be ten different places at once and capture as much true behind the scenes as possible (see main film above), the second unit focused on pulling talent aside, chatting with them and capturing portraiture. This was probably one of the most challenging, yet fun shoots we’ve done so far with Coach. With multiple locations and ten people to capture in a tight timeframe, it was time […]
As part of our multi-year collaborations with Coach’s new sustainability focused sub brand, Coachtopia, we were given the very rare but beautifully awesome task of creating whatever we wanted! The brief was simple, create as many different logo stings as we could for Coachtopia in a month with the specific point of reference being how MTV did it in the 90’s! Not every day, you get such an awesome and open ended brief but it was one we were excited to tackle particularly as logo stings will become a main stay in Coachtopia’s visual identity and all the content they create in the future. This really was the opportunity for us to put the RIOT stamp on the Coachtopia brand for the foreseeable future. Our creative freedom was truly unleashed with these logo creations. We attempted to make logos for every personality type, with some being made with the intention of being at the start of films, some at the end and some that you can split up and tell the story as a book end. Our mix of 21 hand drawn, cute, glitchy, retro, and trippy Coachtopia logos have wild colors, cool motions and deep texture to each tell […]
A very unique and interesting part of our collaborations with Coachtopia this past couple of years was our hand-drawn animated how-to video for their Coachtopia app which launched today. All Coachtopia products created will feature an emblem that has an NFC chip embedded within it. This NFC chip serves as your products passport and will allow you to track you product’s lifecycle. In the future you’ll also be able to see how one product becomes another, or who previously owned your product etc. This chip does a lot of cool stuff but most people have no idea what an NFC chip is, or how to activate it. That’s where we come in. Our film was conceived, storyboarded and created as a vertical aspect ratio (9×16) as it will live solely on the Coachtopia app. We utilized Bonnie, a flower to help welcome everyone to Coachtopia, demonstrate how to use the NFC chip, explain what it is, where to find it and what this unique technology will allow you to do. We had Molly, one of the Coachtopia community members come out to our studios to record the voice for Bonnie in advance of the animation process in our booth. Utilizing […]
We’re very excited to share our ninth collaboration (!) with the Washington Commanders. Our “Making The Mascot” film is a longer form follow-up to the recently released Major Tuddy mascot teaser that was shared across a variety of media channels including social media and in stadium prior to Major Tuddy’s official reveal. Shot in documentary style over a few months, our creative agency directed the internal Washington Commanders content team on what would help create a compelling and detailed glimpse into the creation of their official mascot, Major Tuddy. We captured interactions with players from the past and present, fans, the club’s president, as well as Tuddy on the pitch for his reveal, including celebrations with the players after a touchdown. Of major importance was to shoot the making of Major Tuddy’s mascot outfit by Bam Mascots in Toronto, Canada. During this capture we were able to highlight initial prototypes and illustrations all the way through to interviews with the hands-on craftspeople. The materials, drawings, and details were all included to show Major Tuddy’s creation in a variety of stages to help fans visually understand all the details that went into the making of Major Tuddy. You can watch […]
Our team at Riot NYC is thrilled to announce our latest collaboration with the Washington Commanders, marking a significant step in their historic rebrand with the introduction of their new and first ever mascot, Major Tuddy. The film, which was created to introduce Major Tuddy to fans on social media was also played at FedEx Field, and made a big impact and be eye-catching for both small screens and stadium-sized displays. Working with the Washington Commanders, we brought Major Tuddy to life in the green screen clips and combined it with footage from the Commanders archives to create a compelling story. Major Tuddy’s character pays homage to the nickname “The Hogs” given to a the Washington Redskins most famous offensive line that were responsible for Washington Redskins Super Bowl wins in the ’80s and ’90s. We also included scenes of the Hogettes, fans known for their wild outfits and pig snout masks. With a mix of humor, player interactions, exciting visuals, and references to Washington Commanders history, we created a high-energy film that was shared on all the Commanders social media channels and received widespread coverage in media outlets. Stay tuned for our next project, “Making The Mascot,” a […]
