PARIS DESIGN WEEK 2015
What’s new in design this autumn?
The fifth annual PARIS DESIGN WEEK, scheduled to overlap with MAISON&OBJET PARIS, will take place from Saturday 5 to Saturday 12 September 2015.
For eight days, the event invites French and international professionals and the general public to discover the best showcases of design in Paris, while the leading talents in the discipline gather in the now! le Off exhibition.
PARIS DESIGN WEEK is an itinerary uniting 300 participants that all proudly promote first-rate design in Paris. At a time when new collections are popping up in stores and the new concepts for the autumn season are being launched, the event brings together the talents and forces of retailers, galleries, showrooms, hotels and restaurants for eight days to share their experience in design and creation with the public.
Late-night openings, debates and installations bring the city to life, echoing the new releases for autumn and kicking off the pre-holiday sales period. This latest edition intends to forge even stronger and broader ties between those involved in Parisian design, but also to strengthen the event’s technical dimension with the creation of the Projets special itinerary. Established to mirror the development of the MAISON&OBJET PROJETS show, this new themed itinerary invites specifiers and private individuals with development projects to enter the participants’ showrooms to meet interior design professionals – a unique early-autumn opportunity to start planning home improvement and décor projects.
In 2010 MTV WEEK encompassed a series of events across 4 days ranging from 50,000+ people outdoor concerts to VIP lounge parties, indoor private concerts and club parties, celebrating Madrid’s hosting of the MTV Europe Music Awards.
MTV approached us to art direct, design, and animate as well as develop part of the concept for this year’s MTV WEEK broadcast, outdoor and print campaign.
With over 50 deliverables, this campaign was featured across a broad range of media and had some of Madrid’s hottest spots displaying our work throughout October and November.
This is a montage of the various pieces developed for the broadcast campaign.

A Motion-Graphic made for an Media/Event Crew I belong to. The Concept "All City" came from the fact that for the event that we did for the Amsterdam Dance Event, Beat-Producers from for instance Germany, Belgium and The Netherlands attended.
Very proud about this one because of the techniques used
