This animated showreel takes you on a visual journey, highlighting some of the many projects featured on the pages of our newly published Winkreative Design Stories.

The book spans several continents and presents the agency's unrivaled portfolio of work from relaunching Swiss International Air Lines with a new identity to creating unique pop-up experience for Louise Vuitton. Its roster of premium clients includes Hermès, Lexus, Louis Vuitton, Persol, Mini, and Union Pearson Express.

Divided into the core themes of Charm, Craft, Intelligence, Clarity and Storytelling, each chapter of the book showcases a set of projects sharing that characteristic, alongside short case studies, which offer insight into the thinking and skill behind Winkreative’s work, revealing the culture of the agency itself.

The book is now available.
