Take Risks, Break Rules, & Kick Ass

on October 8, 2013 by Bridget Comments

We focus a lot on the final creative or final execution.  I thought it would be interesting to go backstage and share a talk that San-Fransicso based artist and freelance creative Ivan Cash gave at 72U (the in-agency university at 72 & Sunny). It’s a 30 minute talk but it’s worth a look if you have time.

Made from cool

on October 8, 2013 by Bridget Comments

More than just a tagline, this campaign from Danish fashion brand PREMIUM by JACK & JONES really is made from cool. I love it.  The 5 films feature Christopher Walken who plays the part to perfection and literally brings a touch of magic to each spot.  The styling and art direction is flawless.

Following on the success of Departure Roulette (we wrote about it here) Heineken and W+K tapped into tweets and social conversations around the first stunt to produce a smart follow up stunt. Read more…

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.

“Royalist or Republican?”

on July 23, 2013 by Bridget Comments

This is the best #RoyalBaby play I’ve seen so far.  The Guardian has launched a pretty neat toggle feature that lets people filter out all Royal Baby news.  A small text link discreetly positioned just under the nav allows people to toggle between 2 modes.

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.
