Psyop and W+K Take Coca-Cola to the Streets

by / December 3, 2018 /


Portland agenies, Psyop and W+K, recently teamed up to create this street-inspired short spot for Coca-Cola. Despite the playful nature of this piece, it was a serious undergoing (just look at the credit list) with a couple dozen creatives jumping into the fray to get this animated piece produced. The result is solid and has that unique, quirky feel that PDX seems to lend so much of the work out there these d[Read More]

Apple Delivers Unique New Spot Encouraging You to Share Your Gifts

by / November 27, 2018 /

Apple's new holiday spot, Share Your Gifts, was kind of a surprise when we came across it. The sweetly animated story is a definite departure from Apple's dyed in the wool panoramic, spinning metal computer cases model of commercial making.

Each day of the music festival (which was held in early October), music fans were invited to join the experience at Uber Radio Live, a fully interactive live music activation featuring a stage re-imagined as a larger-th[Read More]

Roundhouse x Adidas Originals x Utility Crossbody Bag

by / September 25, 2018 /

The thing we found fairly interesting about this short bit of media work Roundhouse did for Adidas is the unique format of the video. Very street coupled with a very low-key feel. We imagine this was a spot designed for social media, again given the odd aspect ratio. We really dig the immediacy of this 15 second piece, though. To us, that is the power of advertising in today's economy. So much media that can be developed for so many platform[Read More]
