Earlier this year, Polaroid shook things up with some fresh branding and a return to form—and today, they’re our Brand of the Day for their collaboration with Ridley Scott Creative Group.

Polaroid’s campaign “Forever Now” begins with a couple in quarantine, and quickly delves into the inner workings of an instant photograph, “drawing a parallel between human chemistry and the Polaroid film chemistry that occurs after each shot—and the magic that happens at the intersection of art and science.”

Check out the spot, directed by John Filipe of RSA Films Amsterdam, below.

As Polaroid writes, “Now more than ever it is easy to get lost in a world of digital distractions. The essence of Polaroid is an appreciation for what we have here and now.”
