Auchan Drumul taberelor / Cartier Hub

Cartier Hub is a community hub inside a commercial mall, a one of a kind experiment in Romania. Our mission was to create from scratch an explainer with the double role of an advertisement. We created a story where the neighborhood ties grow visibly strong as their lives touch and interact. And we chose an illustration style that best told the story of a warm cozy space, suited for adults and children together. I think it should be noted that this was an almost impossible deadline, we had 2 weeks tops from idea to rendering, so we are so super proud of the whole team who worked their butts off to make this possible.
