Making a fake Folk band real to launch VO5's range of products
Through sponsorship of the UK teen soap ‘Hollyoaks’, a new set of products was launched by creating what appeared to be a real Folk band: ‘The Oaks’. To make a fake band real, their back catalogue and a paper trail was created. It included everything from their influences, personnel, how the band was formed, how it evolved, marketing and branding campaigns, etc. The Oaks needed a life beyond the show 'Hollyoaks'.

An entire visual world had to be created in order to give ‘The Oaks’  a past, present and future. These are some of the pieces created to feature in TV spots and online content that also lead to a single release, videos and more.
