Lost goes typo-tastic with FROST for Woolworths South Africa.
After harbouring long term ambitions to work together a nice spot for Woolworths with a fairly open brief presented the opportunity.
FROST DESIGN sydney has been working on the Woolies brand for some time and was delighted to step up and apply their skills to this TVC project. Collaborating with Lost In Space's asian based crew allowed for speedy and cost effective execution within a tight schedule. 
Initially several storyboard styles were presented and a Jaunty Type based solution executed. 
Music composed specifically by DGMUSIC in Melbourne working closely with the creative team.

Making of:
Initial Concept Designs:
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.

In a world where the future is uncertain, great utopias forsaken and reality is a constructed space; a dream is born.
A dream - awakened by passion and love - inspired and reinterpreted by space, form and light as the creative and transforming force for constructing a new future.
Offf Partner Titles is the place where design, architecture, typography and animation merges to create this perfect, transforming and utopian dream.
