Super Glue

Finally, someone understands my fears. Oh, yeah, and gets the experience of using this product.

It's Magic

Cheap idea that will draw attention. Just not sure the "comfort" grip would be a hit.

10,000 Pictures of You

Ten Thousand Pictures of You from Robin King on Vimeo.

I'll let you watch and see the plot. Just know this was submitted for the 2006 Screen South as part of the UK Film Council's Digital Shorts. All in camera, and quite fun, if not confusing.

Be Glad You're a Man

Nice insight, make a clear statement for avoiding martinis. The plus up would be the bathroom execution.

Web Marketing That Hopes to Learn What Attracts a Click

"The traditional creative process right now is not structured to essentially deliver hundreds of permutations, or hundreds of ideas for messaging. There's no doubt that there will be a lot of data that can be collected that could be applied to the Creative Process. But, that's not necessarily an easy discussion to have with great art directors." Bant Breen, President, Initiative.

Getting Home

I'm starting to believe the first law of advertising is show something you would love to do. That seems pretty easy , doesn't it?

Stop in Time

I love copy. Even better if it is meaningful and clever.

Mini Reality

We knew it would come, but the worlds first virtual-dimentional-webcam-program advertisement is up and in Germany. Sure it takes a bit of work by the consumer, but the novelty of it should pay off. Pretty damn cool though.

Any questions that Dolormin gives you a fast, drug-induced euphoria? Me neither. I do love the look on the dog. Simple addition. KNSK Werbeagentur, Germany.

Clear Music

Cheil Worldwide, Seoul, Korea. Simple. Effective. Arresting.

Paper and Typography

I am absolutely in love with these. Yulia Brodskaya's paper typography is amazing.


Love ads that transcend language,

For the Blind

Knew what this was for, but still caught me off guard. Very Nice spot for a public service few talk about.

Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Animated Typography

Exactly 60 years ago, on December 10, 1948, the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted and proclaimed the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. To celebrate this 60th anniversary The Human Rights Action Center commissioned graphic and motion designer Seth Brau to produce an animation for promotional use and activism. Seth faced the mammoth task of translating no less than thirty articles into a coherent and fluent animated typography piece. Using only Helvetica with stylised illustrations, in simple black on a tan background, he created a short film that is both elegant and experimental in scale, and in its use of type and symbolism.

Japanese Camera Advertisement

How different our cultures are. I think, it is rather funny.

Build Your Own Shell Chair

Nice instructional video for the step by step process of building the Eames Shell Chair. Now, just find your own transcendental design, and your good. Video for Herman Miller by Eames.

Inspirational Recycling

Visual proof of what I have always suspected. There is a difference between art and craft. This traditionally would be considered crafty, yet is is so simply beautiful. Great ideas found here.

Ikea's Type

Keeping the basics of design makes for great design. Go figure. I like the image as type execution. Pulls you in to a great story, but remains simple messaging. Zig, Toronto, Canada.
