Touch the glowing screen
Tell us which direction,
Ask the ghost in the machine

Agency: Wieden+Kennedy London; Client: Three & i.am+; Photographer: Daniel Sannwald; CDs: Larry Seftel & David Day; Creative team: Ben Shaffrey & Max Batten.  Three partnered with will.i.am to launch the dial. We created a strong photographic treatment to tie a range of visual assets to each other and the TVC (I’ve included the film here for reference although I didn’t work on it directly). The psychedelic cloud texture was inspired by Daniel Wolfe’s original ‘neon/acid western’ director’s treatment and, like the lighting, it is a flexible asset that runs though the TV, print, digital and instore assets that made up this campaign.

We used the square of the Uniqlo logo as a way to visualise different movements (and help contextualise Uniqlo’s clean, product-focused, aesthetic in the real world).

“Meritocrazy describes itself as “even worse than Monopoly!” and mad as it may seem, it might even be better. Worth looking up if only to give you a better chance to examine every quip and complaint concealed behind the neon type on the box.”
