Us are Christopher Barrett and Luke Taylor. They met while studying at Kingston on the BA Graphic Design course. The duo's first successful collaboration came in the form of a music video for Thom Yorke as part of the D&AD student awards, winning 1st place.
In 2014, Us directed Icons for the Sunday Times; a roving one-shot film that recreated six iconic images. The commercial won awards at Cannes, D&AD, The British Arrows, Creative Circle, APA, Ciclopes and Kinsale, as well as a plethora of New Director Awards (including the Saatchi Showcase in Cannes). The pair have since worked with agencies from America to China, directing work for Apple, Nike, Honda, Cadbury, Johnnie Walker, Comcast and IKEA to name a few.
Music videos remain a crucial creative outlet for Us to push new approaches, techniques and ideas, and they continue to win awards for their unique work. Recent promos include collaborations with Jack White, Harry Styles and Hozier.
Needless to say Us are one of the most esthetically pleasing yet exciting upcoming duos in the world of moving pictures.
