Brave. Branding Agency

We came across this branding project recently for a film festival held in St.Kilda, Australia. This branding project was created by Brave, a graphic design agency in Melbourne. We just love the simplicity of it, the colours used and the humour throughout. “Over 3 years we have built up the St Kilda Film Festival brand and elevated its positioning and exposure. It’s now Australia’s premier short film festival. In 2010 our hero was a dark and moody creature of the night.”

INFLUENCERS is a short documentary that explores what it means to be an influencer and how trends and creativity become contagious today in music, fashion and entertainment.

The film attempts to understand the essence of influence, what makes a person influential without taking a statistical or metric approach.

Written and Directed by Paul Rojanathara and Davis Johnson, the film is a Polaroid snapshot of New York influential creatives (advertising, design, fashion and entertainment) who are shaping today’s pop culture.

“Influencers” belongs to the new generation of short films, webdocs, which combine the documentary style and the online experience.
