Flower Studio is a creative studio, with its roots in visual communication and story telling. Since establishment in 2017 there has been a continuous effort to develop and adapt to ever changing landscapes.
The result of not shying away from thinking and doing has been the completion of an eclectic variety of projects within the creative sphere. What always remains is the eagerness and hunger for necessary and relevant ideas.
Flower thrives most under collaborations. More than that, collaborations of different intellects, perspectives and skillsets are essential to the studio's work. If you are a former or current comrade, then receive many thanks! If you are a possible future one, then welcome!
Art Direction and design for Timbuktu’s critically acclaimed album “Du Gamla Du Nya”. The work’s underlying narrative is centered around three guiding principles: black space, black heritage and black joy. The album and single artworks are varied excursions into each subject. The record is a celebration and manifestation of black experience and vision.
The one year long collaboration resulted in a conceptually coherent and visually varied world, with extensive creation of imagery, illustration, 3D animation, video and much more. The executions were then displayed on national television, several nation wide print campaigns, social media and merchandise. The collected work was then exhibited at the Stockholm art gallery Steinsland Berliner.
The Pilgrimage – The music video showcasing three songs out of the album. We scanned a park with Leica RTC360 3D technology and the artist with iPhone depth sensors. The digital landscape was then composed in the game engine Unreal, making the scanned point cloud fully reactive to the music.
The video tells the story of Mansa Musa, the king of Timbuktu and richest man in history, and his pilgrimage from Niani to Mecca, passing great ancient landmarks along the way. This pilgrimage symbolises the artist’s inner pilgrimage towards growth and transformation.
Come Rain Come Shine – The lyric video to the single “Bars från ett B-barn”. The video takes us through one rainy night in which shadow like apparitions appear all around us as we ascend up to the tower, towards the single’s symbol. A flag that captures the energy and spirit of the song, claiming one's birthright and encouraging people to hold and claim their space. A symbol of human dignity and freedom for all.
