Sleeping Dogs
Branding and Launch Campaign
------
 
On August 14th 2012, Square Enix (producers of Final Fantasy, Hitman and Just Cause) are launching their new open-world title Sleeping Dogs - an open-world action adventure, set in the gritty Triad-corrupted streets of Hong Kong. .

Not only were we responsible for producing a 360 global launch campaign including Television, Print and Digital executions but also for giving Sleeping Dogs it`s name and creating the visual identity of the brand, including box art illustration by world-renowned poster artist Tyler Stout.

Prior to being acquired by Square Enix, the game was being developed by Activision under the title True Crime Hong Kong. As the game was never intended to be the third game in the True Crime franchise, Square Enix acquired only the game itself and not the IP. This left Square Enix in need of both a new name and visual identity... that`s where we came in.
