Are Beards Still Trendy?
Beards have been trendy for a while now, you have seen facial hair on celebrities like David Beckham and George Clooney, models Ricki Hall, Johnny Harrington and others. But like with every fashion, it comes and it goes. So is it good timing for razor company Schick to launch a “Free Your Skin” campaign? I will let you decide. Their posters are intriguing with rodents forming full beards on three men; “our menagerie consisted of 6 ferrets & 9 rabbits, all various colours. The rabbits were the best looking of the bunch although the ferrets had all the personality & a rather… unique… smell about them. A million furry captures later & we had a fantastic bank of material. The rough comp was remade in high-res with input from the creatives & Troy,”  states retouching studio Electric Art.
