Very
"It Starts With a Box"
Online retailers Very riff on their familiar square logo in this well-constructed ad, which connects various important life stages via an assortment of boxes. From moving into a first house to proposing marriage, the ubiquitous shape reminds us that, in some ways, our lives aren't so different after all. Thoughtful work from agency St Luke's and director Chris Balmond.
