Kimberly-Clark Huggies North America
The image was created from separate shots. As well as composing the final piece, we changed the colour of the pyjamas and shaped the type to flow realistically on the curved surface of the ribbon. The image was also colour-corrected for overall look and feel.
Trident White North America
Drawn with zany humor in a retro “cut-paper” style, this concept for a print advertisement harks back with a wink to the 1960s.
Diageo Smirnoff Global
The Nightlife Exchange panorama was composed of images from a photo shoot combined with others from stock. The cityscape background was carefully composed to be a generic skyline, not identifiable as any specific city.
Images from the photo shoot were composed and colour-corrected to create the wacky gadgets and bizarre inventions in a humorous catalogue called “The Flyer’s Collection”.
Energizer Schick US
The image was composed from various sources, including several shots of splashing water. The water effect on the rope was painted by the retoucher, using stock image references.
Diageo Jose Cuervo Global
Merging the provided image of the Cuervo Especial bottle with in-house shots of spilled liquid, the retoucher created a vision of the bottle emerging from a pool of gold.
Cadbury Trident US
The image provided from several separate shoots were merged, then colour-corrected and retouched to create surrealistic (i.e. “realer that real”) scene.
J&J Band-Aid North America
The image was composed from separate photographic elements. To give the final result a more graphic look, surface details were smoothed out, edges were sharpened and colours were made more vivid.
