McCann Worldgroup, Mumbai and Warsaw-based creative agency Ars Thanea, devised and created this clever ad campaign to sell celebrity biographies for IDEAS books. Marilyn Monroe, Andre Agassi and Elvis “flash” the viewer swathed in book ‘jackets’ bearing their biography book covers. The celebrity images were entirely created in CGI by Peter Jaworowski of Ars Thanea.
The branch of bookstores named Ideas Books decided to prepare advertising campaign which would present the broad array of its assortment, with main focus at underlining that the stores have both autobioraphic and biographic books on pop culture icons.
Bearing in mind the real physiognomy of main heroes, the agency created their 3D models (basing on organic modeling), and as a next step made them wear the covers of the books they were present in.
