Next up is a new website for clothing store TK Maxx, which offers the opportunity for users to upload photos of their men and see them modelling TK Maxx clothes in comedic fashion. The site is one of the first offerings from Infinite Corridor@Annex, a new arm of production company Annex Films that will create “cross-platform advertising, branded content and experiential art projects”. Infinite Corridor@Annex handled the concept, design and build of the TK Maxx site, and even composed the music, which can be downloaded here, if you are so inclined.
