Us

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 late 2007 they formed Us, a multi-disciplinary design studio as well as co-founding fabric a Portfolio & Blogging Service for Creatives. The focus since then moved towards directing & moving image work.

"Pollution"
This film drawing attention to the Ultra Low Emission Zone which will be arriving in London soon, uses the song 'The Air That I Breathe' to emphasise the current level of pollutants burdening the lungs of the capital's inhabitants. A classroom full of children may be a rather obvious way of reminding us of the importance of this issue but it's doubly useful.
