The Mill team in Chicago helped create Illinois Lottery ‘Spring Into Town’, a whimsical spot that highlights the new and natural look of the monthly instant ticket through an origami creatures concept. Directed by Mill+’s Nic Yiallouris, the film tells the story of spring as paper hummingbirds and butterflies flock around tulips that bloom with lottery tickets, each ticket morphing into a magical forest animal.
