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 product’s passport and will allow you to track your 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 […]
Now that the 2022 holiday season is over we’re excited to be able to share the seasonal campaign from our good friends over at Coach that we helped to ideate. We originally took this under our creative wings way back at the start of 2022 when the Coach creative team approached us to co-create two holiday concepts they could pitch to Executive Creative Director Stuart Vevers for their 2022 holiday campaign. Fast forward to December and it’s been amazing to see many of our ideas and nostalgic inspiration being reinterpreted into the final holiday campaign assets with many cuts and clips being used as inspiration for the final live Feel the Wonder campaign. You can watch our Remember Wonder clip in the player above and see below some key clips that served as inspiration for the final campaign.

We created a stop-motion animation film and used intricate ASMR sound design to bring Coach's (Re)Loved – Remade Rexy Puzzle to life.
A cozy, warm, and fuzzy film that is full of magic and offers an authentic look at the Coach (Re)Loved Remade Bear, made from repurposed products.
Our very first work for Coachtopia was early in 2022 when we were asked to come in to Coach HQ to shoot Q&A sessions with some Gen Z consumers. At that time I don’t think the full idea of Coachtopia had been formed but the importance of these sessions helped to shape the very early moments of the Coachtopia brand. Fast forward to the summer of 2022 and we were asked to create a sizzle reel that would serve as an introduction to Coachtopia to help welcome and teach potential new community members about the brand and and this new circular approach to fashion. Our sizzle reel introduction to Coachtopia was exciting to be a part of and hyped us up for the months of continued collaboration that would happen in the background. Utilizing a mixture of hand-drawn animations and user generated content we crafted a sizzle reel that Coachtopia used to help recruit Gen Z designers, activists and influencers to join the Beta Community and help shape the direction of Coachtopia as a brand. Our sizzle explains the basics of Coachtopia and how creating a circular fashion brand is essential to save our planet by providing a positive impact […]
Our long-time relationship with Coach brought us to this new film for their associated non-profit agency, the Coach Foundation to help highlight the significant progress they’ve made in unlocking the dreams of 5,000 young people through scholarships. Our film would also serve as inspiration to encourage Coach employees to participate in the mentorship program, helping under represented youth with opportunities not regularly available to them. We created a touching and authentic film that highlights the impact the Coach Foundation is having on young people around the world. Utilizing raw, self-filmed personal messages alongside a subtle, yet eye-catching visual aesthetic our film is a true celebration of the amazing work the Coach Foundation is doing for young people that deserve a chance.
At this point, we’ve created hundreds of different sizzle reels for brands and artists to help share their creative outputs with high-paced, fun edits, and this SMC 2022 Sizzle I sour latest piece of work for our good friends over at Coach. Our Coach: SMC 2022 Sizzle Reel was created so that store managers could see the progress of the brand and what they’ve achieved in 2022 and was used as the opening film for the store manager’s conference. Edited together with quick cuts and motion graphics we created a unique, fast-paced sizzle reel. Featuring superstars like Jennifer Lopez, Megan Thee Stallion and Kate Moss alongside product close-ups and runway visuals, we showcased all the best that Coach had to offer. We had a lot of creative freedom to push the boundaries with this sizzle reel in terms of color, vibe, filters and effects and were even able to have fun with the Coach logo by coloring and melting it! We’re excited for our next creative agency collaboration with Coach and to see how much further we can stretch our creativity.
