This video was created as a video teaser for Yale University’s presentation at the World Economic Forum in Davos.

Three Yale professors have discovered the role that psychological habits play in our happiness. Based on Yale’s most popular course in the university’s history, they wanted to share what they’ve learned with the thought leaders in Davos.

Our pals at Edelman came to Houses to bring this story to life. We designed a visual narrative based on simple geometric shapes and iconography. Our aim was to make these complex ideas as easy to read as possible, but charming enough to engage and entertain the viewer.
