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.

Vodafone
"Each Christmas"
This immensely sweet commercial for Vodafone in Ireland depicts a slow burning romance between two people whose orbits are misaligned. While she left the rural community where they grow up to seek adventures in the wider world, he remained behind to tend the family farm. Christmas was the one opportunity they had to reconnect in person, and we witness their growing attachment over the years.
