Virgin Mobile wants to retrain your brain with Blinkwashing

on September 17, 2013 by Bridget Comments

Generally I’m not usually a fan of any campaign that requires people to use a webcam. But I have to say that Blinkwashing from Virgin is the exception. Take a look at the ad for yourself.

Who hasn’t asked for a late checkout?

on August 20, 2013 by Bridget Comments

It’s great to see a brand flip industry standards.  The Art Series Hotel in Melbourne turned the problem of low occupancy rates into a communication opportunity as well as an additional revenue stream.  Overstay Checkout is a very clever promo and activation idea that touches on product innovation.

Is big better?

on August 19, 2013 by Bridget Comments

Cheeky stunt from Copacino+Fujikado (currently named Ad Age Small Agency of the Year) with this tongue in cheek congratulations to Publicis and Omnicom.  It’s simple, understated and I like it a lot.

Reverse pitch process

on July 24, 2013 by Bridget Comments

I find this proactive approach to new business by Fantasy Interactive (Fi) very interesting. Most pitches are called by clients, asking the agency to present a vision for the brand or business.   Fi have flipped the situation.  They’ve simply published a vision for how the travel & aviation sector could be improved online.

Skype Portraits “Stay Together”

on July 17, 2013 by Bridget Comments

I like this campaign from Pereira & O’Dell for skype.  It’s a simple idea grounded in product truth.  ”Stay Together” is a series of 3 short films and ‘projected’ portraits by Singaporean photographer and visual artist John Clang.  Last year we featured some of Clang’s work here on our pinterest board.

The Office Turntable

on July 10, 2013 by Bridget Comments

Creative Directors are a tough “target audience”.  Kontor records and Ogilvy Germany came up with a lovely idea to promote Boris Dlugosch’s new single to the advertising industry.  I wish all direct mail was as nice as this.

Cannes Review (feels weird without Red Bull)

on June 24, 2013 by Bridget Comments

Before I dive into my Cannes review it’s worth highlighting that things would have been radically different if Redbull had entered Stratos Space Jump at Cannes Lions this year. Red Bull has redefined advertising to a point that they don’t even consider it to be advertising and don’t want it to be celebrated as such.   Read more…
