Dry The River's poster campaign

Share on Facebook Buzz this
Good music is not generally sufficient in order to reach the masses. The band Dry The River recently launched a poster campaign in London with 3D horses that jump out from the posters. Responsible for this is the multiple award-winning agency Foam, and all implementation was done by talented Xavier Barrade. Making each poster takes about 35 hours. Love the idea!
