simplehuman | Behind the Scenes

A Peek Under the Lid

simplehuman designs everyday tools to help people be more efficient at home. And we think that’s just plain awesome.


The Challenge

To paraphrase simplehuman...
"When we're creating new products, we obsess over the smallest details. But all they see is the end result. How can we give our consumers a behind-the-scenes look at the incredible care and detail that goes into everything we make, so that they can understand the value of our products?" 


The Approach

To paraphrase ourselves...
"Hey! What if we made you a behind-the-scenes video?"

Okay, there was a lot more to it than that, but when we connected our heads together with the client, that's where we landed. If you want people to understand the value of the product or service you offer, show them how much time and work goes into making that product or service. So, we spent an entire day interviewing members of their team, and capturing all kinds of great footage to match the narrative we were aiming to tell. The great part is, we found a lot of smart ways to tie in extra footage from our previous shoots. Not only did this majorly "up" the production value, but it enabled their target audience to see everything that goes on behind the scenes to the final result in someone's home.

Let There Be Tru-lux

The great thing about working with simplehuman, is that there is ALWAYS a story behind a simplehuman product. If these were behind the scenes videos for any other trash can or mirror, there really wouldn’t be much to say or show. But because simplehuman really THINKS about everything when it comes to serving consumers, we were able to dig up a lot of great information about why they chose certain technologies and which industries they borrowed from to accomplish their goals.
