Grey NY Documents ‘The Rise of See Forever’

Grey New York teamed up with Whitehouse Post and Carbon VFX to document the rise of One World Trade Center and promote One World Observatory, set to open in the spring of 2015 in “The Rise of See Forever: One World Observatory.”

In the 50 second video (featured above) the visual history of One World Trade’s rise is pieced together from hundreds of crowdsourced Instagram images. Reminiscent of a flipbook, the images flit across the screen, documenting the eight year construction of the structure in under a minute and ending with a 360 degree view of the building as it morphs into the One World Observatory logo and the line “See Forever.”

“The Whitehouse Post team and I have watched One World Trade being built from our office since we moved in six years ago,” said Executive Producer Lauren Hertzberg in a press release. “It has been an absolute honor for all of us to work on this project with Grey.” Read more

GSD&M Bows First Work for Walgreens

Three months after reportedly beating out McGarryBowen for Walgreens creative duties, Austin’s own GSD&M has unveiled its first campaign for the drug store chain, which carries the tagline “At the Corner of Happy & Healthy” (still a little iffy on this one).

In this effort aptly dubbed “1901,” we’re treated to a little rework of “Down on the Corner” and VO work from John Corbett (aka “Aidan” from Sex and the City or the dude from Northern Exposure, take your pick) while we take a quick, 30-second ride through Walgreens’ 111-year history. Still, GSD&M has managed to pack enough in for us to not only see how the chain’s design has evolved over the years, but remember that Walgreens was responsible for the drive-thru pharmacy and child-safety caps among other things. While the concept of “1901″ is not the most novel one, the little history lesson within makes it worth viewing, we suppose. Credits after the jump.
