Website creator Squarespace kicks off the new year with a short film titled Journey for actor John Malkovich’s new fashion line. With the debut of www.JohnMalkovich,com, he diversifies from actor to fashion designer. 

While Malkovich may be best known for his film work, he began his career in costume design. This new campaign explores the challenges Malkovich faces as he battles to break free from perceptions about him so that he can be thought of differently, in this case for his fashion sensibilities. People can shop for his latest fashion pieces on www.JohnMalkovich.com.

Directed by Miles Jay of production house Smuggler for Squarespace and creative collective JohnXHannes, Journey can be seen on the Squarespace site and is part of an integrated campaign that includes TV, digital, social, podcast, and online video.
