Year of the Horse | Kevin Somers

Wednesday, February 5th, 2014

It’s the Year of the Horse, and a wooden horse at that. This horse optimistically pushes forward, so it’s supposed to be a good year for escaping ruts especially regarding managing finances and hardships. It’s also giving and supportive so look forward to finding exceptional kindness in others. This beast of burden possesses a special brand of compassion and protectiveness. It will have your back on the road ahead, which holds the promise of generosity and fortune. So cast out any fears of this year’s journey, grab your spurs, and mount up, it should be a hell of a ride!

Dan Goldberg shoots for Silk

Tuesday, February 4th, 2014

This fall, Emissary Artist Dan Goldberg teamed up with Leo Burnett for a couple days in studio to shoot for Silk. In addition to Dan’s excellent lighting and photography, the effects of the shoot came together with the help of the model maker and art director to construct the almond and leaf character. 16 cartons of milk later, we’re impressed the little guy stood up to the challenge!

Thanks to the talented team of art directors at Leo Burnett, Denison Kusano & Kate Sullivan, for such a great shoot. Beautiful work, Dan!

Late last Tuesday afternoon, Michael Clinard was contacted by Adweek to see if he could shoot the cover and feature story of their annual Digital issue.  From the initial concepting phase to final delivery of hi-res images on Friday morning, Michael pulled off an amazing shoot and it all was in the clients hands in less than 60 HOURS!  Oh, and did we mention Michael was also moving during all of this?

Michael and his team always deliver some fun stuff, and this was no exception.  Check out the final images below as well as an original brainstorming sketch, behind the scenes, and Michael in a ghost costume…boo! Way to go, Michael!
