Describe the brief from the client
Hennessy was looking for a poster campaign to tease the idea of the Wild Rabbit to their target audience before the full Wild Rabbit campaign launched.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
We needed to design a poster that would be outstanding enough to get people’s attention and intriguing enough to remember it until the launch date.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
The Wild Rabbit is different for everyone. That’s why we asked typographers to find different typographic expressions of their personal Wild Rabbit illustrating the campaign’s tagline “What’s your Wild Rabbit?”

Since the Wild Rabbit is all about pushing the limits of your own potential, we also asked them to push the boundaries of their typography by using materials they had never used before. We ended up with executions made from milk and vinegar, smoke, projections and old typewriters.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The beautiful typography posters appeared on blogs all around the world. At some locations, executions were even cut out and stolen.
