As an artist you can never make work which will be appreciated by everybody. It’s not possible, and it’s also not the purpose of art.” But that’s not a problem for Dutch photographer Viviane Sassen, who’s cult stardom is constantly on the rise. Straddling fashion, fine art and photography is a skill for which she has become world renowned, with personal projects exploring subjects as diverse at Jungian theory, the human body and Dutch colonialism, then embracing pure aesthetics in her work for fashion clients. “I see the fashion as my extrovert side,” she says, “working in large teams, with so much energy. There’s a swiftness and a disposability to fashion that I love. It’s kind of instant. And then the art is much more my introvert side – much more personal on many levels. It’s more of a solitary process as well.”
Embracing these disparate worlds doesn’t phase... Read more

Born in Paris, Fanny, learned drawing and painting at an early age and created illustrations with which many recognized her to be a great talent. Entering her teen years, with a requisite dose of rebellion; she dropped the pencil for a while. When Fanny turned 15, she decided to rediscover her artistic ability but was quickly frustrated by the lack of spontaneity and capacity to capture an instant that drawing fulfilled.

Unfortunately her friend did not capture the attention and interest of the agency, however, Fanny did!... Read more
Christopher Anderson was born in Canada in 1970 and grew up in west Texas.

About "Another Reality" : " To accompany the unveiling of MINI’s revolutionary turn, the Parisian design collective Ill-Studio has created a witty tutorial, Another Reality, which lampoons the pop-science show aesthetic, introducing augmented reality to an unsuspecting audience. “We didn’t realize that there were so many different applications of augmented reality, from entertainment to sport to art to medicine,” says Ill-Studio. “It’s like a Philip K Dick novel becoming reality. Imagine everyone wearing augmented reality glasses in the streets. That would be surreal! We’re quite sure that in 20 or 30 years we will remember the glasses... Read more

With Romain Kremer as its first creative director, Camper went in a new, colourful direction. Teaming with other visually minded creatives, including filmmaker Daniel Sannwald and make-up artist Isamaya Ffrench, Kremer created a surreal, texturally rich video to accompany the campaign images. Each model is transformed into an avatar to represent a different shoe type, with bespoke wigs by Charlie Le Mindu. For the video, one of the main challenges was to match the look and feel of the stills. This was broken down into colour work, where Studio Private carefully matched the skin, hair and background tones, and beauty retouching. Studio Private also provided a number of video effects including coloured solarisation, time lapse effects, and even a complete CG head replacement.
One of our favourite campaigns of the year so far, designing a hybrid jellyfish / sports shoe required a wide range of our skills, from laser scanning to organic sculpting and procedural simulation of the tentacle movements. The resulting stills and animation were the culmination of balletic choreography of jellyfish movements, bespoke illumination and particle systems with consistent creative direction across all deliverables.
