Get The Look : From boring to Boho

Spring is here and it’s a perfect time to update your home office and get creative. Boho is an ideal style for your workspace, incorporating an eclectic mix of colours, patterns, and textures to bring a balance to the room.

The relaxed, global-inspired aesthetic bends traditional design rules to create a layered, personalised look.

Here we introduced subtle earth tones with a mix of natural and organic materials that bring the space to life without it being too distracting.

• Low maintenance plants in a decorative terrarium work well.
• Macramé wall hangings add softness and texture.
• Blush and nude tones tie the space together without feeling too enclosed.
• A large pattern rug will help soften hard surfaces.

Ecommerce Product Videos

Showcasing brand videos on any platform is a great way to build brand awareness and increase engagement. Product videos are particularly beneficial to consumers when researching and comparing products.

A recent project has seen our video production team support the launch of HiSense’s higher priced TVs into a competitive market. We produced a series of video shorts that offer clear and a comprehensives explanation of the product in an aspirational and relatable environment.

Our team led the art direction for the project, creating detailed concept proposals to make sure the key demographic and target audience was addressed. The skilled CGI Animation team translated the concept, producing photorealistic CG animations that were edited in house.

This eye-catching content is now part of HiSense’s collective marketing campaign, featuring on YouTube and major retail websites.

Get The Look: Inspirational Entrance

With 2021 ahead of us, why not take the opportunity to get through that DIY ‘to do’ list or even redecorate a space! With 2021 ahead of us, An area of the home that often gets overlooked is the hallway, a strong colour palette with lots of foliage and accessories can make the space look considered and welcoming.

Make sure the space is functional with plenty of hooks for coats and bags to avoid it becoming a dumping ground. A half-painted wall is a clever design choice, it keeps the space light and airy whilst preventing the lower half getting grubby from pets shaking off the rain or kids coming through in muddy sports kits.
