Shot in collaboration with prosthetic genius Bill Turpin for Cybersmile, this ad is designed to communicate the damage that online bullying can do by showing computer keys pushing up through the skin causing injury – ‘words wound’. Today is ‘Stop Cyberbullying day’ – The Cybersmile Foundation are asking everybody who cares about cyberbullying and online hate campaigns to join their growing movement for action against online bullying and to help them create a safer, more enjoyable environment for young people.

FIAT 500 ADS

Out now on backlit 96 sheets and in press everywhere – commissioned by Krow, using the idea of the car as a spring summer fashion accessory. The backgrounds were made on a small scale (10ft by 5ft) using 3D CAD designs outputted with robo-sculptor technology, and treated and painted by the guys at Andy Knight to look like design led architectural backgrounds.

21/05/2014

 

The new campaign for Hiscox insurance, commissioned by VCCP, is out now. Hiscox are known for dramatic advertising with a fade to black defining the aesthetic. The challenge here was to create that effect in a convincing setting of family life, while retaining the feeling of warmth.

An interesting brief from art director Martin Casson for the church of England. ‘Godbaby’ is a reminder that Christmas goes beyond the exchange of material gifts.

I was commissioned to produce this campaign promoting software that allows easy collection of data for medical trials. The concept was to make an installation of the objects that define an individual’s life, in an art gallery setting. All shot for real in a set made by Andy Knight, this labour intensive project yielded great results. The zebra, Nairobi, was a highlight.

Langland commissioned me to produce a number of images showing clinical trials software devices in action. The software, designed by CRF, allows patients to input data regardless of their location and on numerous devices. The clean light feel of the shots, and deliberate removal from a location context gives an upbeat, aspirational tone to a sensitive concept.

The art directors at Mcann Erikson liked my clean direct style – we opted for a white horizon environment to place the elements for these ads. It was good to shoot still life and people for the same campaign, and rewarding to see the broad exposure – including the M4 into London and Victoria station as shown below.

Maiken makes jewellery using carefully selected materials, and wanted the emphasis to be on the product, while still showing it on the context of a body. We opted for whiting out the body with a cracked effect – Maiken’s talents extend to makeup as well as excellent accessories.

The concept for this set was derived from an earlier editorial shoot for 125 magazine (De Stijl – see editorial section). It worked well because of the variety of backgrounds and angles within one set – essential when you have 110 shots to do over 4 days – and you want every shot to be unique. It’s always a pleasure to work for Paul Smith, and I love the free hand they gave me to evolve the concept.
