HUSH Shares the Power of Memories for Lyve

New York-based design agency HUSH wrote, directed and produced the above brand video for Lyve, a “highly-anticipated personal content solution.”

In the video, a father is seen unpacking moving boxes and discovers an old photo album. The mother, meanwhile, uses Lyve to synchronize photos and video in one location — the LyveHome. It’s a demonstration of how we used to collect and store memories, and how it has evolved with technology. In the process, Hush also demonstrates “the full range of capabilities for Lyve’s apps and the LyveHome, as the mother…utilizes Lyve to consolidate photos from various devices and cameras and effortlessly scrolls through them on all her devices, including a television.”

“Building a brand story around a scary proposition like losing cherished digital memories would have been an easy road to take – but Lyve is about so much more,” writes HUSH in a press release. “Instead, we worked with Lyve’s team to celebrate the way we capture, store and rediscover our personal digital content and to leverage the emotional impact of every photo, every video – every memory.” Stick around for credits after the jump.

HUSH Designs Web Experience for Aerin Fragrances

Brooklyn-based design agency HUSH, who recently created the ambitious “Beauty of Night” for Estée Lauder, crafted an interactive web experience for lifestyle brand Aerin’s expansion into fragrances.

The website invites users to explore videos of the fragrances and the way each of the fragrances was sparked from Aerin Lauder‘s memories and experiences. The longest of these, at 1:30, is the above introduction to the fragrance line, explaining the importance of fragrances in Aerin’s life and exploring the evocative nature of scent and its ability to transport people in time and space. It’s a well-produced vignette that introduces both the line’s philosophy and the individual fragrances, even if it’s pretty much what you’d expect for a fragrance line. Other videos on the site briefly examine the individual fragrances and their ingredients.

More out of the ordinary is that site users can create their own packaging or monograms, using images of berries, flowers, and other fragrance ingredients, and share them on social media for a chance to win $3,500 worth of Aerin products.

“We took a simple and elegant approach to exploring the world of fragrance. It can be a science-heavy subject, but driven by artistry and craft – in the same way that wine and food are both art and science,” explains HUSH creative partner David Schwarz. “We were interested in the artistic, emotional story behind these creations and gave consumers the opportunity to engage on multiple levels.” Stay tuned for credits after the jump.

HUSH Lights Up Venetian to Launch Memory-Storing Tool, Lyve

Brooklyn-based design agency HUSH (who you may remember from their unique way of ringing in 2014) were tasked with launching Lyve, a startup offering a new solution to the problem of information overload, at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show. To do this, they transformed two suites in the Venetian Hotel in the heart of Vegas into a completely branded space, complete with “lights, displays, and visuals to showcase Lyve’s unique offering.”

HUSH’s installation was “anchored by a large central screen flanked by a custom designed product display. The screens [showed] a collection of personal images and videos breaking into fragments and transforming into colored lighting illuminating the assortment of tablets, phones, and other devices arrayed on glowing physical pedestals below.” The visuals were designed as a kind of metaphor for Lyve’s collecting, sorting and protecting service.

As HUSH creative partner David Schwarz explains, “Lyve is an elegant solution to a persistent technological problem, and we were happy to help them define this product while introducing it to the wider world. In words, the offering sounds complex, but showing it visually feels simple – so we created a metaphor to discuss how the different technology platforms capture and share content all to one central product.”

While I’m sure you’d have to have been there in person to get the full experience, you can watch HUSH’s CES installation for Lyve in the video above, and be sure to stick around for credits after the jump. Read more

Reminder: Tomorrow, NatGeo Will Be Sending Tweets into Space

On a slow-ish news day, why not just let you all know that two months after first announcing its “Wow! Reply” campaign, National Geographic Channel and NYC agency Campfire will be bringing their idea to life tomorrow at noon EST. What idea, some of you may ask? Well, the parties involved decided to promote NatGeo’s new show Chasing UFOs over the summer by collecting tweets from fans (20,000-plus and counting) via the #ChasingUFOs hashtag and videos from celebs like Stephen Colbert (above), which will be launched into space from Arecibo Observatory in Puerto Rico tomorrow.

Why? Well, to commemorate the 35th anniversary of what’s known as the “Wow Signal,” , which is, you know, what basically validates Fox Mulder’s career. You can check out an image of Arecibo, which is apparently the world’s largest ground-based telescope, below. Credits after the jump.
