JWT, MassMarket Make Using Tissues Seem Fashionable

MassMarket and JWT New York have partnered up with noted fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi to make blowing mucus into a tissue fashionable for Kleenex in the new spot “Do My Thing.”

The 30-second spot, directed by Grady Hall, highlights different women (there are only women in this ad, because men don’t use tissues — they just blow snot rockets) expressing their personal style with their Kleenex selection. The new designs follow the ladies, enveloping their surroundings in their patterns and colors. To achieve the effect, MassMarket “brought together an interesting mix of artists and techniques to smoothly unite the multiple shots for this project,” explains VFX supervisor Diego Vazquez. This included implementing “traditional 2D, stylistic motion graphics and dynamic 3D.” The team’s distinctive visual design really shines in the spot, succeeding at making Kleenex’s new styles seem appealing and inviting.

In W+K’s Latest for Nike+, Every Workout Becomes a Game

Anyone who’s gone running after a hard day knows the power of an active imagination. With every arm pump, you might be punching your boss in the face. With every stride, you’re building yourself into the powerhouse that will soon confront your boyfriend about his lack of follow-through.  Some picture themselves as superheroes, sprinting through the streets to make the ultimate rescue. When we push our bodies, our minds make the physical effort possible–and even fun.

W+K’s latest spots for Nike+ helps bring those mental adventures to life. The star runners of their TV ads are in a real-life video game, leaping up palettes and climbing through windows as they complete their workouts. Nike+ helps runners measure, map, track and share their runs, gamifying the work out process and inspiring everyday runners to reach farther.

My only complaint with both ‘Game on World’ and ‘Run Your City’ is their weak music selection. I get that they’re going for a tinkery game soundtrack, but I would rather they forfeit the game theme in favor of some motivational (and still techno-flavored) Diplo or bouncy pop Walk the Moon.
