In collaboration with CLUB 21 for the Tsumori Chisato 20th Anniversary event, Artison Asia unveiled it’s custom made tree sculpture on the 25th March 2011, which many would agree was one of the main topic of conversations on the day of the launch. With approximately a week and a half to prepare and construct the tree, plus 80 branches, we would be more than glad to say that the store dressings turned out to be more than satisfactory. Here’s what we did.
We first equipped ourselves with a skeleton of the tree, 8ft high and 4ft wide. And then, with a magical touch on the chicken wire, we sculptured the tree bark and enhanced its beauty with paper mache and cloth from the latest Tsumori Chisato collection, provided by CLUB 21. Our theme for the day was “Tropical Forest”. And with a twist from the Artison Asia team, here are the results.

Putting our brains together for “Brain”.
A Wishing Well + Shooting Gallery + JWT Shanghai Project
When “Brain”, Japan’s most-read art and design magazine, assigned
JWT Shanghai to design the cover of May’s issue with the theme indigo, we knew we had to do something more than to just to produce a pretty picture.
“How can we get readers to spend more time with Brain’s Indigo?” asked Yang.
“Can it entertain the reader” asked Elvis.
“Why can’t a colour sing?” asked Salome Zhang.
“Or Dance?” asked Zhang Chao.
“How about all of the above?” added Terence.
“Let’s zap ‘em with electric current!” suggested Simon.
“We’ll need a high-‐tech experiment lab for that. I’ll build one.” said Raymond.
“You’re going to need a great photo on the cover to get readers interested. I’ll shoot
it!” said Szeling.
That was how we came up with the idea of turning a magazine cover into an
experiment to pass 10,000 volts of electric current through the indigo colour.
For the execution, Shooting Gallery rigged a rack of electric cables that resembled a giant music score. We then collected 20 experiment specimens from JWT Shanghai, dressed them in a skin-tight indigo bodysuit and stuck them onto the cables. Szeling and the Wishing Well crew spent the day capturing very possible angle and expression of the specimens so they’ll look funny and entertaining when we zap them in the online experiment.
After the shoot, the retouchers worked through many nights perfecting the photos. The website designers and programmers lost a lot of hair with rounds and rounds of tests and reconstructions. The specimens strained their voices as they were made to sing, screech and scream at the studio. The account team and publishes were worried sick if we could meet the publication deadline.
It was a tough process, but it was based on mutual trust, close collaboration, creativity and fun. JWT Shanghai would like to thank the crew at Wishing Well and Shooting Gallery for their patience, professionalism and time to make electrifying a colour possible.
