When I was working for an advertising agency, we were asked to create a banner ad for the new advertising campaign for a known mobile network operator. I did the storyboards for the ideas which were floating around in our agency as well as the ideas the copy writer had and then I thought “Well, the idea is about this mobile phone that comes from paradise. So why don´t we show them paradise?”
I talked to the account manager and he liked the idea. So I did some quick 3d renders of what this paradise could look like, which you can see below. I just want to remind you, that these stills were done with an advertising campaign for websites in mind. So the budget was not more than what a client would usually spend on the designs for a banner ad. This meant: I had to get results really, really quick.
