ARCHER: DREAMLAND

Season 8 of Archer was an interesting challenge. Since the show took on a completely new look and feel compared to previous seasons, we needed to convey a more serious, darker tone while still remaining true to the Archer identity that fans knew and loved. We went all-in on the detective-noir theme, creating assets  reminiscent of the 40’s, always making sure that the characters were the focus. We rolled out content in 3 phrases: pre-premiere, in-season, and post-premiere – each phase having a different set of objectives which helped guide the social content that we produced. The result was a beautiful social creative campaign that captured the essence of this fresh take on Archer.
