Tokyo = much more creative taxi tops

Friday, May 28th, 2010

Those crazy Japanese. Go to LA Times Magazine’s site and see 50 samples of taxi toppers from Tokyo. I wish our cabbies had the ability to customize their rides here, too.

My diaper is full of chic

I found this to be quite a departure from your typical “Look how absorbant. And comfy, too!” approach to diaper ads. The execution is fairly funny, but the copy is what I like the best. Some funny lines in there, way to go Huggies.  From JWT, NY.

Funny spot for Santander Rio Bank

I see that Johnathan Gurvit is the Director, but am not seeing an agency listing on this post. Either way, I like.

My monday morning breakfast: unicorn meat!

Mmmm. Looks sparkly delicious, doesn’t it? Buy yourself a can at Think Geek. They have recipes, and all sorts of funny info on the delicacy.

MUSIC PHILOSOPHY

Mico Toledo from the UK. This is his Music Philosophy Project, “a weekly graphic/typographic interpretation of philosophical song quotes.” Give one to your iphone.

A collection a day

Friday, May 21st, 2010

My first impression with this site is “wow, what a lot of work.” But after the initial woozyness from trying to imagine creating a collection EVERY day for a year wears off, I begin to note how beautifully the collections were laid out and photographed. Really nice stuff here, and inspiring. The vintage feel to most of the collections really makes them quite interesting, too. Check out A Collection A Day.

Just an FYI for you this weekend.

If you go to Cold Stone, don’t order this drink (the PB&C, in Gotta Have It size). It’s got 2,010 calories, 131 g fat (68 g saturated) and 153 g sugars. Yep, that’s over 3x the recommended daily intake of saturated fats and the equivalent of consuming 68 strips of bacon. Gnarly. And we wonder why there’s an obesity problem in the US.

Found this, and much much more info about the worst drinks in America here.

For the love of color

Awesome short video glimpse inside Pantone, who we all know and love so dearly.

Sometimes it’s really just all about how you market yourself.

Meet Karl Strassburg, aka “K-Strass”. This guy’s been on SIX, yes SIX, morning television programs in the midwest posing as a “yo-yo champion”, whatever that is. Now, his whole routine of not actually being able to yo-yo or forgetting string for his yo-yo is hilarious, for sure. But what I really like about this story is that this guy is that he managed to get himself on TV so many times. As advertisers, marketers, creatives and those who create hype and PR, we could learn a thing or two from this guy. He repeatedly owns the hosts and you’d think they would learn from his past appearances. Nevertheless, he continues to make appearance and I find it inspiring. I would hope all of our clients, who actually have real products and do what they say they do, should get as much facetime on the news. Thanks for the PR lesson, K-Strass.

I read this story on my fav sports blog, deadspin. Read the story, see a few more vids here. You’ll enjoy them, he attempts four yo-yos on the one video.

Old school

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

Awesome flickr set of old painted wall ads. I gotta say, these just look so much prettier than today’s ads. Just sayin.

Google can mean jobs for all you creatives.

I thought this was pretty darn clever. And it worked.

Pics of the Oil

Tuesday, May 18th, 2010

Obviously this oil spill is a huge catastrophe. There’s no way around that. The sea life killed alone makes me wonder when I’ll have my next po’boy in NOLA, how much it’ll cost and whether it’ll be shipped in (a travesty). Anyway, I enjoyed these photos on the Boston.com site. Some really amazing and often beautiful captures of the tragic event.

Groove-y

Friday, May 14th, 2010

I was biking into work today and saw a car parked on my street with the Groove new car tag on the back of it and was reminded of how nice this logo turned out. It’s a pleasing departure from the typical car dealership logo. P.S. we only did the identity. Can’t take credit for the advertising.
