On Monday FWA will publish our wallpaper kit to their special edition 10th Anniversary collection. We where invited by Rob Ford together with 9 other great agencies (FWA 10 top winning agencies) like Goodby, B-Reel, Big Spaceship and EVB for this special occasion. It was of course a big honor for us, but also a chance to make a quick piece of art which is always challenging and fun.

If you like the font I have used and made, you can download that one here.
When we had no time whatsoever we made a quick collaboration in house. We didn't have any directions among us more then just go "bananas", to make something we wanted to have on our own desktops, and to keep it black and white as our graphic profile.
The directive from Rob Ford was; "The wallpaper should include the FWA logo, your own logo, the number 10. I am happy for the FWA logo to be manipulated in any creative way rather than having it placed, as is, on a nice image."
We started with the wallpaper I did for couple of month ago for North Kingdom Soundtrack called Dear Deer Black (pic 1), as a base for everything. Félix Hill was first out (pic 2) and Riccardo Tagliabue second (pic 3) and I finished it (pic 4). The theme become as weird as the nature you can see in our showreel I think.
For the iPhone wallpaper I wanted to create a picture that worked alone but also of course when the iPhone is locked. I solved that making a simple reflection that is placed precisely on the ""slide to unlock" graphic.
