The brief: Create three executions for Gillette razors, playing on the idea of the ‘five o’clock shadow’ that appear on men’s faces if they don’t have a close enough shave.

The style reference was Tim Burton and Edward Gorey – macabre black and white sketched characters in a slightly dark and distorted setting.
