Aggressive Animates a Winter Wonderland for Subway Spots

Subway is getting into the holiday spirit early this year, and production company, Aggressive collaborated with Subway’s AOR, MMB to bring the festive campaign, “Holiday Customer Appreciation” to life. Known for their technique agnosticism and mastery of all aspects of production, Aggressive took a 2D approach to the campaign for the famous eatery, crafting three beautifully animated spots with live action elements.

The team at Aggressive tied the three fluid spots together using a stylish and clean design sprinkled with snowflakes that take viewers from scene to scene. The festive handcrafted visuals were enhanced with subtle music that conveys the holiday cheer evident in the illustration. The spots use a flat stylistic with modern graphics while still encompassing the warmth of the holiday spirit, bringing the scenes alive. “Winter Wonderland” consists purely of animation while “Jared” features the eponymous Subway superstar and “Famous Fans” gets a cameo from Oakland Raider, Justin Tuck and Washington Redskin, Robert Griffin III.
