Describe the brief from the client
Picture Alliance supplies stock images to the creative industries. So their brief was to do something that would appeal to creative people. To create something as creative as they are.

Describe the challenges and key objectives
Creative people are notoriously difficult do impress. To cut through, any communication must combine a clever concept with good design. Fortunately, as creative people ourselves, this gave us an advantage: we simply asked ourselves what we would like to put on our own office wall.

Describe how you arrived at the final design
Our solution was to design a series of large format posters. Each poster tells a different story using only Picture Alliance images - and no words at all. It is a simple and witty demonstration of how even quite complex stories can be told with just a view carefully chosen images.

Give some indication of how successful the outcome was in the market
The initial set of posters we mailed out have proved to be very popular and we are thinking about of sending our a second batch. The response from our direct peers - designers and art directors - has been great.
