Elastic/a52: Honda “Boxes”

Elastic/a52 releases another colorful component of the Honda Accord Crosstour campaign for agency RPA.

Directed by Andy Hall, “Boxes” builds on the lively minimalism of “Instruments,” with transitional moments powered by the expansion and contraction of nested squares that look like Albers paintings on acid—neon-lit and full of kinetic possibility.

The rendering in this series reminds me a little of Smith & Foulkes’ work for HP. Both worlds are full of chunky, stylized forms and almost tangible streams of color—worlds I’d like to spend some time in, if I only knew how to find them.
