Akos Papp and Laszlo Szloboda are two students graduated from Miami Ad School who paid careful attention to the targeted media classes. They want work, and they want it now, In New York City of all places, so they snuck in to their favorite agencies to leave copies of their portfolio where their target market - top creative directors - would be a captive audience.
Since top creatives are quite busy people they have no time to look at the hundreds of junior books they receive. Not at their desks at least. However there are five minutes in their day when they are alone and would read almost anything; on the toilet.
That Pantone holds the key to mouth-watering color is no surprise to anyone here, we've drooled over Kim's Pantone Chip Cookies before . Now French bakers are making little tartes in pantone colors, seen in french culinary magazine fricote. The recipes for making the tarts accompany the images, the full spread (sans recipes) can be viewed at Designboom.
Risking life and limb, sort of, Len as in @LenKendall is proposing to Katie over the internet, and allowing you to meme-ify him while he's on his knees holding a ring. This could backfire for our brave hero today, Len is actually attempting to get the meme to to reach Katie before he does, and us intarweb-dwelling peeps will act as cheerleaders chanting #SayYesKatie until she does.
Hurry! Going fast! The Hyper island group collective that calls themselves "Cousteau Collective" are selling their brainpower on Ebay. The small print explains that you'll get 48 hours of brainstorming from ten people, if you send your brief no later than 10am Stockholm time on Monday, February 27th.
Designer David Marsh (portfolio here) combined his love for Pantone with his love for great album covers and created these awesome prints that I need to decorate my next house with. Because, swoon, this only happens to be my two great loves as well. And as you can plainly see, it looks awesome. Even Scroobious Pip agrees:
"Hip-hop artist Scroobious Pip liked them so much he commissioned me to design his latest album cover and single releases in a similar style," says Marsh.
Can't wait to see that one. Via CreativeReview
The kids at Deeplocal must have been a litte bored recently, as someone sat down to make the "Like Belt". This fancy giant buckle allows you to "like" things in the real world... By thrusting your pelvis at it. A bit like a misbehaving dog or one of the guys from Wayne's world: SCHWING!. Oh ha ha, very funny - and to make sure you realize how silly this is they took the belt out for a test on the town, liking coffee-shops, checking in at the office and making facebook friends. The best part is when the lady wearing the belt wants to make Facebook friends with the guy she meets.... wait for it.
Okay okay, now the shit [blank] says has jumped the shark twice, once wearing Fonzies speedos and smoking a cigar, if you can muster the energy here is the very last one. Which you will watch, because it's about us.
Matt Klan and Ross McIntyrei roamed around the halls and stalls of some ad agency spewing out all the shit ad agencies say. "Sushi?" "Yepp" - "I got it, a virus campaign!" -""Betty Draper is a bitch". There'e also of course a mention of Agencyspy just to get on there, hopefully. Asskissers. ;)
Tumbled: Banksy on Advertising
“People are taking the piss out of you everyday. They butt into your life, take a cheap shot at you and then disappear. They leer at you from tall buildings and make you feel small. They make flippant comments from buses that imply you’re not sexy enough and that all the fun is happening somewhere else. They are on TV making your girlfriend feel inadequate. They have access to the most sophisticated technology the world has ever seen and they bully you with it. They are “The Advertisers” and they are laughing at you.
K-Fed has suspected heart attack while taping 'Excess Baggage', spells un-good PR for fast weightloss
K-fed, also known as well-fed and Britney Spears ex-husband Kevin Federline is recording Excess Baggage, a celebrity weight loss series, in Australia. Yes TV has gotten that bad, aren't you glad you set fire to your set years ago? Back in December he was taken to hospital with signs of heat stress, and yesterday he was rushed to the hospital with chest pains that some feared was a heart attack.
Barbarian Group celebrates ten years of shaking things up -- and those leg garters are still quite nice -- by showing off on a subsite aptly placed at x.barbariangroup.com. On the site you'll find genius weirdness like when Jenna the Intern decided to invite the entire company into a massive iChat. The reason for "Oh hey Tobu. Yo baby ugly." company meme, the history of their 404 pages, why they call the Irish Car Bomb cocktail The Car Baum and more. It might not be a "how is babby formed", but it's still funny. Oh, and in between the digital hijinks is some digital work. They do actually work sometimes too, you know.
Remember the "Madge" billboard that milked a woman to poo-poo GM food? Here's an interesting image of a Madge-billboard in situ, next to another billboard showing happy ppizza.bakers about to shove a pizza-bun into.. er.. her oven?
I seriously doubt that this epic bad billboard placement is real, but it made me snort with laughter anyway.
You've heard of the people who work at ad agencies who tattoo the agency logo on them. Not all logos were created equal though, some really are better than others, and to take it one step further there are those who ink real brands on themselves. This weekend Danny Corrales, aka @coolsideburns the AD you've seen at CP+B, BBDO and as a teacher at The Creative Circus, declared his love for Converse All Star and that classic logo by having them inked onto his ankles. Positioning is everything.
It probably hurt like a motherfucker, but we think the results are worth it. Nicely done Danny.
"Money talks" says OccupyGeorge who are stamping one-dollar bills with simple graphic info-slogans to help circulate the word.
Money talks, but not loud enough for the 99%. By circulating dollar bills stamped with fact-based infographics, Occupy George informs the public of America's daunting economic disparity one bill at a time. Because
moneyknowledge is power.
Well, my tree isn't 350 green nor the real deal that smells like forest, it's actually gold and plastic but a set of pantone christmas balls will look superb in that anyway.
Choose from Pantone 186, Pantone 286, Pantone Cool Gray 10, Pantone 18-2120, Pantone 165, Pantone 15-5519, Pantone 377, Pantone 268, Pantone 14-0848 or Pantone 672. I might just do 186.
Ty Hutchinson who managed to both be a copywriter by day and author of Chop Suey (A Darby Stansfield Thriller) by night, goes on a bit of a rant against those people who want so much, but have excuses for everything. It's pretty funny.
This person then said she hoped to write a book one day too.
I hate when people say this.
.. oh yeah, and there's something about "Make Conversations, Not Ads" in there too. See What Does 'Communiting' Mean???. Dance down his paragraph breaks to find the point:
we have marketed so much that we have killed communities...
we have marketed so much that we have harmed our customer...
we need to conduct business in a manner that enables and sustains communities...
COMMUNITING is about COMMUNICATION between people and companies that enables or sustains a COMMUNITY...
