Etsy – Greatness in the Making

With the Summer Games on the horizon, Etsy tapped 72andSunny to highlight the parallels between athletes and craft makers, reminding us of the dedication it takes for each to follow their passions and dreams in order to ‘Find Greatness in the Making.’

Framestore’s NY-based team was responsible for picture enhancement, while the cohesive color hues were thanks to LA-based Beau Leon.


Rita Ora – You for Me

Rita Ora’s hot new song ‘You for Me’ is giving us all the summer feels (and making us want to take a dive in that pool). Vivid pops of red, white and blue thanks to Framestore’s grading master, Beau Leon.
