RM Williams launches new brand design and film via Special Group ahead of global expansion

R.M.Williams has launched its new brand film 'A Life's Work' across TV and digital. The film is one part of a suite of new creative work for R.M.Williams created by Special Group Australia, which launches alongside the brand's new design identity.

The film, 'A Life's Work', directed by Christopher Riggert at Finch, is an emotive interpretation of the R.M.Williams' heritage of craft. Taking inspiration from the life of the founder, the film uses the metaphoric relationship of wild horse and trainer to embody the brand's deeply embedded core values - authenticity, integrity and lasting legacy. The film is running on TV in regional Australia and across the brand's website, focusing on engaging the R.M.Williams heartland.

This is rolling out across seasonal campaigns, print, out-of- home and in-store. A visual interpretation of the brand's innate contrast of strength and beauty, the design platform contrasts abstracted aerial landscapes alongside characterful fashion portraits.
