This is by far my favourite agency website of 2013. 123 West is a Vancouver based advertising agency and design collective, who claims to be ‘different to a typical agency’. It seems that way. Their website was created entirely with talent from fiverr.com (The world’s largest marketplace for services, starting at $5). Read more…
This isn’t new, but I thought it was interesting. Sony found a very simple but effective way to get the Xperia Z into the hands of iPhone users at the Way out West music festival in Sweden. They created a popup battery charging station at the festival and offered the chance to try out an Xperia Z while their old phone was charging. Read more…
Why sleep when you can watch TV series non-stop? To make sure people don’t sleep in France, Paris agency Buzzman has taken to selling coffee for CANALplay. It’s called “Insomny Coffee” and it’s available in beans, ground or even as nespresso compatible capsules.
Tourism Victoria and BBDO Clemenger are giving people the chance to feel what it’s like to walk around and explore Melbourne this week thanks to the remote control tourist. Two people will be fully wired up with helmet-mounted cameras, microphones and GPS from 9 to 13 October ready to take requests via twitter or facebook.
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.
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…
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.
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.
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.
