EF Language School Commercials

Posted by Scott

These beautifully executed commercials for EF International Language Centers were created by designer Albin Holmqvist (who did the type) and director Gustav Johansson. The typography is simply incredible; many of these frames would be suitable as posters. There are four commercials in all, the rest can be found at Albin Holmqvist’s Vimeo.

Yes! I thought you would have posted these sooner or later. So great, trying to learn after effects right now because of these.

Oh wow I got the chills watching those. I think the combination of the music/video with the good feelings that come from seeing someone nail the type treatment did me in. In the London one, I loved the part with the tea cup!

These videos are so banging. In that humbling kind of way. Trying to re-learn a little about images and design just from watching them.

memories… I’ve been in Hastings (UK) with EF in the old 1994.
I remember their marketing material being quite tacky at the time, I’m glad they’re getting classy stuff like this nowadays.

I was really expecting “MDMA” to pop out at the end of the London movie, but I guess “Party” was more approriate.
