Blur Takes on The Kraken in “Black Ink”

Inspired by Blur’s stellar black-on-black titles for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Brooklyn ad agency Dead As We Know It commissions Tim Miller and his Venice 3D powerhouse to move Kraken Rum beyond the woodcut look pioneered by Transistor Studios back in 2011 and into a full-on macro-inky tenticular aesthetic.
