Ok Cannes – it’s time to step up and ban this guy like you promised. Douchebag and scam artist extraordinaire Rodolfo Sampaio, Chief Creative Officer for Moma Propaganda in Sao Paulo, Brazil has been caught yet again entering a fake ad in an award show. If the name sounds familiar, Rodolfo was the lowlife who caused […]

Apple – Beast File from Duncan Elms on Vimeo. Am I missing something here? This video about the supposed “Ethics of Apple” doesn’t really say anything that bad. Sure, it rips on Apple suppliers… which aren’t Apple. It tsk tsks Apple for taking a 30% cut and for freezing out Adobe. Um… so what? And […]

Splitscreen: A Love Story from JW Griffiths on Vimeo. Such a simple concept, so beautifully executed. It’s one of those “Why didn’t I think of that?” ideas that I love seeing so much. And on top of everything, the entire short film was shot using a Nokia N8 mobile phone.

I’ve got to say that while it’s gimmicky, Coke’s “green” billboard in the Philippines is a pretty damn cool idea. The plants each suck 13 pounds of carbon dioxide out of the air each year – and they’re planted in recycled coke bottles. Even the potting mixture was made from industrial byproducts and organic fertilizers. All told, […]

SUPERHEROES Trailer from rehab on Vimeo. Anyone who knows me knows I love learning about subcultures of people that the general public don’t have a clue exist. That’s why I did things like Fight Club long before the UFC went mainstream. Now there’s SUPERHEROES, a documentary from a local director named Michael Barnett. I missed […]

If Hot Wheels doesn’t find some way to use this amazing art in an ad campaign, they’re crazy. This is every little boy’s dream.

T-SHIRT STORIES TRAILER from Julien Potart on Vimeo. I love these mini-documentaries that seem to populate Vimeo everywhere. They’re usually so fun and well done, you can’t help but enjoy them. This one on the T-shirt looks awesome. I’ve always been fascinated by subgroups that the general public doesn’t even know exist. I guess I’ll […]

Yes, I post about Amnesty International a lot here. But name a client who consistently get as stunningly beautiful work from a multitude of agencies around the world? They could cop out and rely purely on the emotional aspect of their cause to get the point across. But they never fall back on only that […]

I don’t know what it is about lottery clients. I used to work for one and they universally buy bland, boring stuff. It’s really hard work to get anything edgy or Cannes-worthy past them. Take these spots for the Minnesota State Lottery. Could they be any more expected and unfunny? Mr. Monopoly is rich. He’s […]

This sounds too good to be true. Lytro is a Mountain View start-up that is developing the word’s first consumer light field camera. A light field camera captures additional information about the light in a scene, producing a photograph with remarkable characteristics–the image can be viewed in 3D, the focus can be adjusted after the photo is […]
