the energy is electric, propelling a youth culture revolution. hotshot, the new all-day diner in Repulse Bay, is inspired by the restless attitude and exploits of surfers and skaters. the brand identity and interior design are direct reflections of fearless low-rider graffiti lifestyle – melding plucky west coast grit and timeless cool.
the restaurant’s hangar interior is modeled around a lifeguard station, with iconic surfboards – each a one-of-a-kind masterpiece – adorning the walls (alongside vintage comics and classic beer crates). the materials used were chosen to reflect the era’s easy going aesthetic, incorporating sun-bleached wood, industrial corrugated steel surfaces, a big ass fan and bright neon signage. every last detail, from the custom airstream catering trailer to the comics on the menu, was custom-made and painstakingly crafted to transport customers back to a simpler, groovier time.
the restaurant mascot, Hotshot, epitomizes the spirit: tough, carefree and more than a little crazy.
for their 2012 winter jewelry collection cartier came with the challenge to write and create a « catalogue film » based on already existing footage of a baby panther. the film/campaign also had to be activated in social media.
in order to be able to create the story we used cgi to « glue » together the real footage.
we then took each and every frame of the movie and created special hand made, numbered and stamped cartier winter tale cards. we released a number of these winter tale cards for each of the days remaining to christmas and invited people to look for them on the site. if you found one you could claim it on the site and have it sent to you.
vietnamese street culture was the driving force for chom chom, a vietnamese restaurant nestled in hong kong’s soho district. we zeroed in on the most prevalent objects in hanoi’s street life – metal spoons, plastic stools and the flag – and turned them into recognisable symbols.
stencilled advertisements hastily painted on concrete walls became inspiration for chom chom’s typography. the layered and soft, absorbable feel of watercolour across all the visuals reflect the way the food drinks up the sauces it is dipped in, as well as how the cuisine is chopped up then layered back together.
guests at chom chom embed themselves with what is quintessentially vietnamese, transformed into stunning icons of the country’s true self.
