“I thought this campaign felt very dynamic and was executed beautifully. There was a wonderful take on the use of negative space throughout, while also setting the tone for each production with the layered elements in the background of each composition. I felt that the translation of the concept into an outdoor installation was highly successful. All collateral felt meaningful and there was excellent cohesion between all. I’m sold on seeing all of these productions!” -Amy Imdieke
