A Year of Sun with Mr. Persol (Kevin Dart)

A Year of Sun with Mr. Persol (Kevin Dart)
A Year of Sun with Mr. Persol is a beautifully realized animated ad for Persol sunglasses, directed by illustrator Kevin Dart and Stéphane Codëdel, and designed by Dart and illustrator Chris Turnham.

At first I thought it might be intended as a web only ad as the richness and variety of the illustrations gives the impression that it’s longer than it is, but at just one minute in length, it could be intended for broadcast.

There are additional credits on Dart’s site.

As an ad, it’s very understated, but that’s evidently the intention; as an animated short, it’s very nicely done.

One response to “A Year of Sun with Mr. Persol (Kevin Dart)”

  1. I get it. As the spot’s about sunglasses, the artist really goes all out to emphasize light and reflections and that’s what makes it visual eye candy not to mention, it’s very clever storytelling. Nice treat this a.m., thanks.
