I thought it would be interesting to go back over the the last post on trends and see where things netted out – specifically looking at the grand prix and a selection of gold lions. One general comment is that it seems big brands are back with big ideas that transform business (Nike, Coke, Google, American Express were highly successful this year) a break away from the small niche ideas for lesser known brands or exotic markets that sometimes Cannes falls in love with.

Before heading off to Cannes, I thought I’d take a stab at some of the trends we may see coming out this year — mainly focusing on cyber & integrated. So here goes….
How often do you see great advertising for air an conditioning brand? I love this campaign for BGH coming out of Argentina. A pure creative idea born out of a great universal insight… nobody likes to see Dads in Briefs. Read more…

As I started to watch the casestudy I thought “Oh no, here we go, the creation of another fake mysterious online personality…” — but instead Mother New York delights us with a 25ft blogging, tweeting puppet who made a larger than life impression in New York during fashion week.

There’s not much talk about annual reports these days. But this example from Austria Solar is interesting because it turns reading the annual report into an experience. Apart from being a pretty cool – it’s an experience that brings to life the main mission of the company.
Following on from the post about turning objects into buttons I wanted to share a prototype that the guys here at my agency have built with Ayotle exploring how real interactions can trigger digital experiences.
Billboard Brasil brought its slogan Music can come from anywhere to life with this installation that turns a ‘physical need’ into a guitar solo. ”Guitar Pee” recently toured select bars in Sao Paulo.

Andes are back again after teletransporter, friend recovery and now with a cheeky invention that prevents your last beer from falling into the wrong hands. The previous stunts were strategically placed in bars – what’s interesting is that this time the experience extends to the home.
Could dogs be the new cat? We’ve seen the bark side of the force – now Diesel has launched a film promoting their summer/spring eyeware range starring a foursome of top models bursting with character. I would have loved to have seen the pitch process for this one.
