Osteria Stellita

The ask was to come up with key visuals to show the client, Ghirardelli, some ideas of how we would approach their new Intense Dark campaign.

One of the main challenges was getting their logo to stick out of the chocolate. I created a black and white “depth map” in Illustrator and used it to displace polygons in Cinema 4D to get the extruded look that is so iconic.

I created the various textures and depth maps in Illustrator, then rendered the chocolate in Cinema 4D, and then brought them all into After Effects for compositing and tweaking.
