I’m not sure if it get’s much better than this. You know that old joke about the photographer in the doughnut shop… well, it’s true. The joke goes, you can’t have too many doughnuts, when a photographer…er, uh, tries to eat…with cameras. Anyway. I have no will power, and I really like doughnuts. You get the point. And if you know me, you know I am addicted to Top Pot old fashioned doughnuts. Keep your camera close, and your old fashioned doughnuts closer.
Aside from eating my favorite Top Pot doughnuts all day on set, this was a very exciting campaign for us because we got to develop and produce the creative. Top Pot came to us wanting to create something memorable for their marketing and advertising efforts. This is something I have been moving into more and more in recent months, but this was the project that really set things off. Top Pot is an institution in Seattle, and their slogan is “Hand Forged Doughnuts and Coffee” and the logo is a blacksmith hammering away on an anvil. We thought it would be fun to bring that idea to life with three images depicting bakers hand forging doughnuts and coffee on an anvil. To keep things authentic, while having a bit of fun, we shot it all in the actual bakery where Top Pot makes all of their delicious doughnuts in Downtown Seattle.
Thank you so much Top Pot. You were wonderful hosts and clients!
