How many friends do you know

on September 3, 2010 by Mark Comments

My good friend Paulo and his Doubleleft team sent me this beautiful link, a site called “How many friends do you know”, where you are tested to show how many of your Facebook “friends” you ACTUALLY know. Although i like art direction and animations, what i really love is the smart questioning of our “virtual” life. Enjoy!

If not, let me tell you that it’s still alive and yet there are some brands (a couple of examples here) using its random nature to connect with people out there.

W+K released this case-study video on the Old Spice “Responses” campaign that took ad-world by storm a couple of weeks ago: Extremely well told, there must already be some gold and titanium awaiting to be delivered to Portland.

Converse tries to be back

on August 4, 2010 by Mark Comments

Although not in the spotlight in latest times, i’ve always liked Converse, kind of classy for me since the days i started to follow NBA (both Magic and Bird wore Converse). Now they’re owned by Nike and they’re trying to come back with some interesting efforts, like their new site done by R/GA and released today. There i found many product-related stuff, like i.e. how to customize some Chuck Taylor shoes, but also some valuable brand content, like “All summer”, a video i saw a couple of weeks ago at Computerlove (by Anomaly New York and done by Psyop) Guess some things never die and only need a little push to be back

Ok, the destroy thing is not so new, but the interview concept, the integration with the related video’s, the pause button and the ‘don’t forget to share’ part are great. This interview is over!.
