Iconic Desk Photoshoot

Evoking confidence and calm by transporting customer service agents and leaders into unexpected environments.

Role: Creative Director
In-House: Zendesk

On-set we recreated lake, mountain, highway, cloud and talkshow scenes with physical set decoration and printed backdrops.

We shot a mix of traditional and with higher concept scenes, using props like walking on a desk treadmill or oars, which naturally fit with the set design.

Scenes are shot to be flexible and open to interpretation, implying core themes like collaboration, but open enough to be paired with different copy lines for a range of campaign topics.

Models are styled to feel comfortable in their look, with an elevated sense of style. Accessories and props in each scene call back to key accent colours in the Zendesk brand palette.
