John Malkovich and Squarespace "Make your next move" by JohnXHannes

John Malkovich and Squarespace have teamed up for a long-form ad that documents the actor's struggle to transition into a fashion designer.

Breaking into a new industry is tough, even – and sometimes especially – when you’re at the top of your game. Oscar nominee John Malkovich began his career as a costume designer but had trouble getting fashionistas to take him seriously when he pursued his lifelong dream of creating his own clothing brand.

The film drives viewers to JohnMalkovich.com, built in collaboration with Squarespace.
