Kitchen Toke Winter ‘18 Issue with Eva Kolenko

The Winter Issue of Kitchen Toke Magazine (quickly becoming one of our fave clients!) is out with a ton of Eva Kolenko’s imagery in it.   It’s always amazing the diverse range of ways cannabis can be used in the kitchen.  A few of our faves from the features Eva shot are below.  Credits:  CD: Joline Rivera | Food & Beverage Styling: Adam Pearson | Props: Gena Sigala



CEA (& Santa) Brings Samsung QLED TV’s to the World

We got the call as the holiday break appeared in the horizon:  R/GA New York sent a wonderful brief to us for a series of unique images supporting the new QLED TV that Samsung was promoting via digital media for the holidays.  The agency tasked the CEA team to create CG-based images that didn’t fall into the typical holiday/Santa schmaltz, but that had a bit of an edge to them and didn’t feel like advertising.  As the samples below show, CEA nailed the brief and then some!  Agency Credits:  CD:  Rene Van Wonderen | Project Mgr:  Brittany Graham | Associate Content Producer:  Janie Penny | Santa’s Face:  Steve York, co-founder of CEA |

Kolenko Captures Ravenwood for Williams-Sonoma

Continuing an on-going relationship with Williams-Sonoma Art Director Kathleen Sullivan, Eva Kolenko was asked to direct a new video for W-S Open Kitchen featuring the proprietors of Ravenwood Farm, a unique gathering space celebrating the intersection of culinary arts, agriculture, and the local makers movement in Kerhonkson, NY.  Kolenko and DP Stephen Meierding shot the owners and their friends and associates, gathering together for a meal in the renovated 19th century barn that is the centerpiece of the Ravenwood experience.  Food Styling:  Chris Lanier, co-owner of Ravenwood | Prop Styling:  Suzie Myers

Eva Kolenko’s Thanksgiving Feature for F&W

CEA’s “How Life Unfolds” Work for the PPB

The “How Life Unfolds” campaign from Cramer Krasselt provided a rare opportunity for Cream Electric Art:  The chance to work very collaboratively for over a year and a half with the agency, developing work that we all were proud of, under terms that were very fair to everyone involved.   The images were created in 3D and retouching, and are below.   CD:  Jim Root | AD:  Rebecca Mader | Art Producer:  Karen Kirsch
