Far Beyond The Stars

by Syd Briscoe

Vollebak: “Deep Sleep Cocoon” - 60s

Sportswear brand Vollebak create an entire futuristic universe in just sixty seconds in this intriguing commercial. A man on a ship somewhere in the far darkness of space comes back to his pod wearing - for lack of a better phrase - a sleeping bag, and goes about the process of what passes for a nightly routine among the stars.

The design work here is lovely, hinting at winder context without giving the audience too many unnecessary details. From casual acceptance of asteroid strikes to custom-delivered vitamin supplements and inter-galactic message transmission, this is a delicately executed slice of sci-fi which suits the brand's tech-focused output.
