Red Bull Kumite: Times Square Live Stream OOH Screen Graphics

Back in March, we took on a pretty intense project for the 2024 Red Bull Kumite, right in the heart of Times Square. Our job? Design and create the graphics for the event, making sure the games looked amazing on a massive 8K corner screen in New York City. We crafted the fullscreen visual experience, with graphics seamlessly laid over live camera feeds, resulting in a high-end and visually stunning display. Red Bull Kumite is one of the must-watch tournaments on the Street Fighter and Fighting Game Community calendar, featuring 16 of the world's top Street Fighter players battling for the title of Red Bull Kumite Champion. The atmosphere was electric, with onlookers and participants alike immersed in the intense action and breathtaking visuals. The event was streamed live on Red Bull Gaming's Twitch and YouTube channels, giving a global audience of hundreds of thousands a front-row seat. Plus, the 360,000 people who pass through Times Square each day got to experience the excitement. The vibrant graphics and the thrill of playing on such a grand stage made the event unforgettable. One attendee even said, "The energy in Times Square was palpable, and the graphics on the big screen were […]

Tiffany: Holiday 2022 Sizzle

As we continue to reflect on the year gone past we are excited to share a holiday sizzle reel that we created for Tiffany & Co. This sizzle reel was created for the internal Tiffany creative team to highlight all the holiday creations that every Tiffany department was planning on releasing during the 2022 holiday season. From campaign films, to window displays, all the way through planned retail pop-ups, our sizzle was used to create a buzz across all of the Tiffany departments in advance of the holiday season. Our sizzle reel also highlights the Tiffany & Co. x Andy Warhol Collection that launched this holiday season, with reimagined Andy Warhol drawings taken from the Tiffany archives earlier in the year. From 1957 to 1962, Tiffany enlisted the help of Andy Warhol to create a series of holiday cards that captured the essence of the festive season through his unique illustrations.

  Throughout the sizzle reel, we combined Tiffany holiday assets from adverting campaigns for a cinematic feel and used Andy Warhol's original drawings from sketchbooks that were scanned as high-resolution images. We cut out different hand-drawn illustrations to create unique animations and motion that add to the playful holiday vibe. You'll see Andy's colorful birds, Christmas trees and ornaments moving across many different clips that add an extra unique look and feel to the sizzle reel. A personal favorite of our creative agency was creating Andy Warhol snowfall using one sketched snowflake and a particle generator! Watch the Tiffany: Holiday 2022 Sizzle in the player above and take a look at a few screengrabs from the clip below.
