IBM "All In The Cloud" New TV Ad Campaign

IBM breaks a series of new television ads that evolve the Smarter Planet campaign with a new creative look and feel. The television advertising provides a very different creative look for IBM, one that is a bit more visually distinctive. The smarter analytics campaign.

“All in the Cloud”, the most ambitious of the commercials, tapped 32 animators, illustrators, designers and modelers who worked for eight weeks to create a world that one could imagine in the clouds. Everything in the spot was painted by hand and then mapped onto 3D wireframes to create the completely bespoke look. Each character has a back story which sparked the animators’ imaginations. Every “location” was extensively researched to make sure the transformed world looked like the real one.
