CEA Goes Mining for Rio Tinto

Cream Electric Art created a stylized world to tell the story of global mining company Rio Tinto’s vision for the future, taking reference from a 2D illustration and re-visualizing it in 3D. This meant creating a multi-scale, fully animated world showing the process of the modern mine, from pit to port, incorporating transitions into real video and back again.

Kolenko Kills It for Kiva Terra Bites

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

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 |
