Blue Nun commissioned us to create a TV advert showcasing their delicious Riesling wine. They requested that the framework for the ad and the atmosphere therein be within the context of a “girls night out.” We were asked to come up with the concept and locations, organize the talent, and create a licensed song for the ad.
We decided that an industrial loft space, which was a renovated warehouse building, would be perfect for the theme. The setting is mysterious and can easily be interpreted as an underground, speakeasy-esque bar scene. The talent we hired fit Blue Nun’s targeted demographic perfectly. They also helped to make the scene believable, which was essential for their marketing goals.
Blue Nun also hired us to photograph their Riesling and Merlot varietals.
We wanted to show that their wines are not simply alcoholic beverages, but that they represent one’s mood. This is why the collection of photography is so drastically different. The images portraying the Merlot varietal are moody and romantic. They are lustful and that sells. Whereas, the product photography for the Riesling varietal is bright and playful. The imagery leans on innocence and wholesomeness.
