In celebration of Hawaiian Airline’s upcoming second anniversary on the New Zealand market, a secretive pair of New Zealand street artists, who work under the name BMD, were commissioned to paint one of the airline’s ground service trucks in their distinctive style.
In September, Microsoft Surface and FCB hooked up with street artist duo BMD to showcase the utility of the tablet in allowing artists to collaborate and bring ideas to life. Since StopPress ran a previous story on the campaign, the pair of artists have actively been engaging with fans via the Surface Facebook page and collecting ideas with the aim of bringing one to life on a wall in the viaduct at 100 Halsey Street. More than 500 ideas were shared with the artists over the course of the campaign, and the duo eventually settled on an entry from a Facebooker Rob Thorne.
Microsoft Surface New Zealand is jumping aboard the street art wagon, collaborating with FCB and renowned Kiwi street artists BMD to produce a bromance-y video showing the creative possibilities of the Surface Pro 3. The video kicks off a “purely social” campaign to be rolled out over the coming three months.
