Dearest tumblr, the people of reddit have decided to draw my wife and I. Please enjoy.
My friend bablerdesign is pretty stinking good.
A unique project and opportunity was given to me a couple months back. I was asked to create a 30 second advertisement to be use to promote a then upcoming (now released) super water known as Übr. Übr is naturally enhanced purified water with high pH levels helping rid the body and bloodstream of acidic waste, and electrolytes to hydrate and help the body recover from intense performance and exercise (Pretty good stuff as far as water is concerned definitely give it a try).
The obstacles I was having to hurdle in order to complete this project were intimidating. Firstly I was limited by a deadline of about one week to concept and complete. Secondly, and more importantly, I had no background in video production or Adobe After Effects and had to self teach myself the process. So, naturally I ventured out to the ever resourceful web to learn me some knowledge on the subject. It was a daunting task to put it mildly. However, it surprisingly transitioned into a very fun and exciting learning experience, one that I am rather thrilled, and better off to have had.
The concept is pretty simple, but with a short time frame and limited knowledge of the software, I knew I wasn’t going to make anything that’s beautifully animated or overly complex anyway. Simplicity actually lends itself well to this particular brand, which worked to my advantage. The brand identity consists of heavy amounts of white space, spots of royal and skye blue, and clean basic san serif typography (as seen on the label).
This in mind I created the ad you see above. A brief, direct, and effective ad designed to cause the consumer to use their imagination by asking them to question… what if?

Haha. My best friend will be very happy to hear this.
My friend was found dead in a park today.
I loved him.
You wouldn’t think the more often you look at at something, the more interesting it would become, but that has recently been the case. You see there’s this farm over the hill from where I work. Every day I walk past this little “fun size” presumably family farm, I see it walking from my car in the morning, and I see it walking to my car at the end of the day. It’s nothing special really, in fact it’s the most cliched farm scene you will ever see; classic mammoth red barn positioned slightly to the right of two towering silos, most likely filled with your run-of- the-mill grains and silage.
Yes this agricultural landscape is extremely traditional, but the more I saw it, the more I wanted to draw it. There is something about seeing the sunset over the hill and covering it with an orange dusk glow that just gives you big ol’ Wisconsin goosebumps. It was after walking to my car and getting these goosebumps that I decided I needed to fill a page in my sketchbook. So one night after work, I cozied a spot in the grass, put on some Band Of Horses, and did just that.
