    Launching a global media platform where Blackness is infinite

    Disney and ESPN came to us with ambitions to expand their content platform, The Undefeated, beyond sports in order to meaningfully connect with a rising generation of Black GenZ and Millennials.

    The Undefeated team had big ambitions for expansion—from moving into new mediums to covering a broader range of Black stories—but they needed a pointed, inspiring vision to galvanize internal teams and new audiences. We were charged with the question: How do you build a global brand that embodies the full complexity of the Black experience?

    Andscape Billboard: Andscape, where blackness is infinite.

    Inspired by Blackness and its complements, contradictions, and complexities; the brand is a fluid manifestation of expansiveness, creating infinite space for families, artists, chefs, athletes, authors, heroes… and so much more.

    Andscape out-of-home posting: “Here we enter sections that beg to be identified and edified. Traversing the multitudes of hues and moods and moves that Black embodies.”

    The creative campaign honors the Black gaze, elevating the familiar nuances of shared experiences to an intimate invitation.
