A great solution and a great example of teamwork. The core concept of the 5 senses is appropriate and well thought through. The styling of the whole re-brand, from the typography and colour selection, through to the photographic treatment is what made this project stand out to the D&AD judges. Also the ethical stance of the Body Shop is echoed cleverly through the sound sense with the Gay rights campaign idea.

Virtual Reality: Worth the Risk?

A VR video has recently been released on YouTube by Network Rail as part of their campaign level crossing safety campaign.

It is interesting in that it enables the viewer to interact with the scenes through a 360-degree experience (just click your mouse on the video to move around the scenes). Even though the characters are digitised it is surprisingly immersing, and then the story is given a human underscoring at the end of the video.
