Shoemaker John Lobb wanted to bring the brand to life by creating a fun, witty and UK-centric short film instead of the typical photo editorial style seen within the luxury retail sector.

John Lobb's director of communications, Benjamin Chatfield worked closely with Not To Scale's owner/executive producer Dan O'Rourke and director/illustrator Steve Scott to come up with the story. Together, they also provided creative direction for the music provided by British band Temples.

Eschewing a traditional agency route, the film was completely designed and produced out of Not To Scale's London HQ. It was debuted as part of a fully-immersive installation show for the brand's new London Collections.

Not To Scale also created print assets and a variety of bespoke illustrations and assets for in-store screens, global shop windows, merchandise and the firm's website, as well as social media channels such as Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Vimeo
