With over 318,000 postal ballot papers rejected in the 2016 US election, Away baggage brand urges you to travel to your registered voting location and ensure your voice is heard in 2020.
Hornet: “Travel has always been at the heart of Away's brand identity. However, this campaign expands the message to travel with a specific destination. It will travel in the name of democracy. As the film says, "It could be the most important journey you will ever take."
"Away came to us inspired by animation styles they saw on Hornet's Instagram Originals page – a collection of independent and original animations created by our team of artists to showcase their skills and express their creativity.
"Directed by Natalie Labarre and animated by her together with Hornet's own Sami Healy and Seongjin Yoon, we created the 60-second commercial within a very tight three-week turnaround."
Natalie Labarre, Director and Animator for Hornet: “It was an exciting design challenge to work within a limited palette and graphical constraints that are reminiscent of a protest poster aesthetic. These limitations also turned out to be a fun way to play around with these types of morphing transitions. "
