Woodwork was invited to create the adidas Members Week campaign visuals. Members Week is an online festival full of athletes, artists, product drops, experiences, and rewards — for adidas' membership program Creators Club.
The creative brief was both open and specific at the same time. The ask was to create a living and moving identity, inspired by the changing states of matter: solid to liquid to gas in an outer-worldly manner.
The footage would be used throughout different touch-points, varying from in-store, print to online, and used as visual branding throughout the campaign. We sought to make an island for our matter to live in, rather than isolated scenes. Exploring different techniques and aesthetics for our world and objects to change into. Working hard on the look and feel of the rocks, water, and gas, while at the same time running a ton of simulations.
The end result is an estranging yet familiar and intriguing world that takes you on a journey of change. And at the same time feels exciting and fresh. Next to the main visual story, we had to bring the logo of Members Week to life. We explored a variety of animation styles within the concept, Solid - Liquid - Gas. Trying both 2D and 3D techniques.
We teamed-up with some great talent from the industry. Director and digital artist Menno Fokma, Motion/AD Joe Lawrence from Make Lovely, and QuiteFranckly in South Africa for their awesome Houdini skills, and some simulation power from Berlin by Juan Garcia Segura.
It was a true pleasure working together with these creatives.
