Bent Design Lab Reins In “Clouds” For ArcBest, Cramer-Krasselt
Director Joshua Cox and his colleagues at Bent Design Lab, a brand that emerged out of Portland, Ore.-based studio Bent Image Lab, crafted three metaphorical animated online spots for Cramer-Krasselt and freight and logistics solutions provider, ArcBest, for a campaign that spans the web and conventional print media.
In this :15 commercial titled “Clouds,” a semi-truck is seen towing a cumulus in the desert, underscoring that ArcBest has a hand in making unimaginable deliveries every day.
Animator/VFX artist Patrick Coan shared, “We created the cloud and truck scenario by using a voxel-based fluid dynamics system. The challenge in the cloud was depicting a turbulent and ever-evolving ball of gas that moved at a rapid ground speed and didn’t evaporate under its own velocity; all while adhering to close art direction to produce a resolution appropriate for screen and print.”
