Stout Design came to us with a creatively challenging project for Kiva Confections: to shoot Kiva’s Terra Bites product in a way that paid off the taste sensations of their two new flavors: Peppermint Patty and Sea Salt Caramel, and to do it with a limited budget and limited time. Eva Kolenko and her team jumped at the opportunity to work on such beautiful concepts, and nailed it! CD: Brian Gunderson | Food Styling: Marian Cooper Cairns | Props: Natasha Kolenko

Eva Kolenko got out of the studio recently for a lifestyle photoshoot for Uber Eats, promoting their partnership with Starbucks. The photo library showcased different Starbucks usage occasions and the ease at which the product could be enjoyed through Uber Eats delivery service. Here are a few favorites:

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.

Cream Electric Art seriously raised the bar for image-build videos with these two animations of CGI imagery they created for Samsung’s holiday ad campaign for the QLED TV.
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!

A miniature world created in CGI comes grinding to a halt due to poor decision making in this animated piece by Cream Electric Art for the Joy Agency in Sydney, demonstrating the risk of people not partnering with a Charted Accountant for their business’s needs.

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.
