An Animated Journey Through Time With Courvoisier, The Toast of Paris [Video]

An Animated Journey Through Time With Courvoisier, The Toast of Paris [Video] - Davy and Kristin McGuire

We have been incredibly enamored by the body of astounding visual works through talented husband and wife duo Davy and Kristin McGuire. They have the ability to convey imaginative stories, sometimes even extremely romantic, through projection mapping animations onto large paper dioramas. The viewer is able to peer into these worlds with wonder, feeling wrapped up in these given moments as if they might be there themselves.

Inspired by the papercraft aesthetics and projection techniques that they developed for their first commission from Courvoisier, Alchimie de Courvoisier, the cognac brand invited them to create paper film sets for their new campaign. The commercial above has been shown in cinemas, and the paper rendering of the Eiffel Tower and the Parisian town house for the key visual are now on display in Courvoisier‘s own museum in Jarnac, France.

Sam Pierpoint Creates Magical Campaign Promoting Christmas in Bristol Crafted in Paper

Currently residing in the rural countryside just outside of Bristol in the Mendip Hills, paper artist Sam Pierpoint works both commercially and artistically, for a variety of different purposes ranging from advertising campaigns, magazine covers, editorials, installations, set design, product packaging and window displays.

She was recently commissioned by Peloton Design who wanted to collaborate on a Christmas campaign that would cut through the noise for Visit Bristol. They decided upon a paper sculpture of Bristol that would capture some of the cities most loved attractions. This cityscape is moonlit in the night, and created with G.F Smith papers in a muted color palette of white/champagne. LED lights were carefully threaded through the sculpture to create a warm and inviting glow, allowing for the fine details of the structure to almost glisten against the dark backdrop. The advertising campaign, which also included an editorial illustration, a publication illustration, window display and a making-of video, featured below, successfully helped to promote Bristol as an exciting and magical Christmas shopping destination for 2016.
