Endless Stories

Our industry is undergoing plenty of changes, but one of the trends that’s here to stay is content as advertising. Entertainment content, to be more specific. And Getty Images has an asset that has the potential to become a great line of business: the editorial archive.

To communicate the more than 250MM of images and videos from Getty Images’s Editorial Archive, we created a short film and an interactive website made entirely with our content. They recount the story of the Fight of the Century - and also all the amazing tales surrounding the night of March 8th, 1971.

The Lost Kubrick

In 1980, "The Shining" hit theaters. Two weeks later, one of his final scenes was cut and mysteriously lost forever. To honor Stanley Kubrick's twenty dead, he recreates a lost scene using only images and videos from the Getty Images collection.

To show the creative potential of the getty images collection, we created a website where for each scene in the film the user could view N other images compatible with that scene.

08. Haruo.co

Personal Project

Haruo.co is a personal development that is born as an Instagram profile with the neverending pursuit of
experimenting and having fun by testing different languages and styles of illustration and design.
Although the goal remains the same today, in addition to sharing personal projects also post work and
proposals that were made for customers such as Volkswagen and Rock In Rio. I am always looking for
good ideas and projects to collaborate with.
