Sagmeister and Walsh Translate 2D Pop Art to 3D Reality

Sagmeister and Walsh Translate 2D Pop Art to 3D Reality
Creative agency Sagmeister & Walsh has brought pop art to life in this series of images that simulate vintage printing methods to promote a department store in their Aizone campaign. The use of vibrant colors combined with classic patterns and brushwork is evocative of the comic-strip stylings of Roy Lichtenstein, with a dazzling taste for color reminiscent of Andy Warhol. Rather than simply create an illustration however, the agency was more interested in reproducing this vintage effect in real life - in essence creating a 2D impression out of 3D objects. Many hours were put into set/costume/lighting design and make-up to traverse this dimensional barrier. The process itself was a refreshingly organic one too - each accessory, detail and setting was rendered by hand, a feat that suspends belief looking at the precision and clarity of these compositions.

The creative team had a bit more fun with the process, producing a few animations of these patterns and posting them online.
