The Intercontinental Life

A beautiful new ad from the Intercontinental, makes you want to pack up and see the world. I like it for the tonality, which reminds me of something Qatar Airways did – the story of the world.

Bonding with the force

Sometimes we really need to find students like these to fill our agencies with. An interesting student work that shows the Star Wars intro re-imagined as a James Bond opening sequence.
