This early version of the spot based on Concept Art work developed by Firman Machda, Senior Lost In Space creative, demonstrates how creative direction can change during production. This Version was created to answer the "sexy" typographical based brief. Subsequently the creative direction changed to a simpler 2d "Punchy" look and the music tempo was increased to create the final version at the begining of the post.
