Made with IBM

Our design team was tasked with expanding the design system of the iconic print campaign.

We partnered with Ogilvy & Mather and Picture Farm Productions to create digital signage promoting the success of the “Smarter Planet” campaign. A combination of live action, motion graphics, and typography brings the distinctive poster art of IBM’s iconic brand builder, Paul Rand, to life.

Digital Billboards

After establishing the static print ads, we developed a distinctive motion language for digital OOH media.

By introducing motion and experiential design to Rand’s distinctive aesthetic, we blurred the line between static billboards and commercial advertising. The ads brought IBM’s brand messaging to millions of travelers in international airports.

Bluemix

We then animated a deep dive into the secure, open-source cloud platform, BlueMIX.

We translated IBM’s schematics for the product into engaging motion graphics, using colorful infographics to educate clients and clearly articulate the powerful Relay technology behind the service.
