Us are music & commercials directors.
This is their Fabrik.
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, the focus of which then moved towards directing & moving image work.
2011 saw them receive the award for Best New Directors at the UK MVA's and Best Urban video for 'Numbers In Action' which also received a MOBO nomination. Their teaser film for Benga’s new album, has received accolades highlighted from Creative Review, Shots and The Reel. The sculpture created in the film has also been bought by Soundcloud. Their excellent join the dots promo for Foals was also a Vimeo 'Staff Pick'.
Commercially, Us have directed work for Honda, Talk Talk, McDonalds and The Sunday Times through Grey, London. The latter has recently been included in the Saatchi & Saatchi New Director Showcase, won the Young Director Award for Best Broadcast Commercial and picked up a Bronze Lion at the Cannes Advertising Festival.
Chris and Luke are part of Fabrik's founding team and here they're using a customised version of our Calico theme for their site. They've kept things minimal throughout, splitting their portfolio into Commercials and Music Videos. Simple cover image layouts let the work speak for itself. Each project is accompanied by a series of stills which gives the project page a distinctive look within their portfolio.
Fabrik provides a number of cropping options to give you control over how your imagery is presented on your site. We believe in letting you decide how our themes work with your images for the best result. Of course, cropping is optional for those of you who prefer to present every glorious detail of your work.
Every Fabrik site has an onfabrik.com address that you can use but you’re free to link your own domain name to your Fabrik site. We've made it easy for you to set up custom domains from the Fabrik dashboard and provide the support you need if things aren’t so clear at the other end.
Vimeo is a great service and has a vibrant creative community. Say goodbye to complicated embed codes. All you need to add your Vimeo content is the video URL.
