Art Project

William Lamsom's work: A balloon, a security camera, a little static-electric-science and viola, art.

Aardman does Hersheys

The beloved animator does some great work, even when it is advertising.

There is a bit of hope running around the land. Having only lived through the 80s, 90s and 00s (70s don't count, I was too young) I can't remember a candidate or a general political stand that inspired so many artists to do something or make their voice heard. Not sure if it is our times or the people in them, but it does instill hope.

Nice Idea

Nice message and nice art for a client that would be tough. JWT Sydney, Australia.

Yes, this is what I do. Sorry.

Yep. More.


Simple Type ideas are the best.

Introduction: Lee Reedy Fine Art

Hey, you already knew Lee Reedy is a staple in the Design/Advertising Community. What you may not know is he has a much more traditional art side. Don't believe us, thats your choice, but I'd still head on over to and see what some of us do in our spare time. You may even discover some of us have spare time.

BBC Olympic Promos

From Gorillaz creators, Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, comes this fun spot for the Olympics. The story comes from the legend of the Monkey King, in case you missed it,

Pixar's Next

Kinda feel that as well as Pixar tells stories, they belong here. So, here they are. Not sure what the story is, but they always deliver the goods. Besides, it gives me something else to look forward to.


Looking for something to put on your walls, something motivational? A reminder of good work that is good work? Look no further than here.

Cute video on fonts... jp

Head and Shoulders

Nice stories, clean look (not bad for shampoo), and a clever way to deliver message. All without a single shot of hair, congrats.

Bad Photoshop, the blog

Great Blog here, Photoshop Disasters. It is a walkthrough of what not to do when trying to create that perfect lie. My favorite would have to be the overpopulation of celebrities with big heads. Just because you can doesn't mean you know how.

Good Type

Good Type is a lost art. You rarely see any new work that is all type. Clients just want pictures. I had nearly lost hope, but now Craig Ward has restored my faith. Look out, new work ahead, inspiration and a bit of needing-to-fill-my-little-available-time with type. More inspiration, and type, on his site.

Tera Era

Hitachi has found a way to get terabytes on hard drives. They celebrate it by this craptastic video that explains you can put a lot on them. Thought this would be informative, you know, the character looked like a Bill from School House Rock, so I thought they would use the medium to explain how they did it. Nope. Let's just say there is a lot of creepy here.

If your fonts were People

Usually, College Humor is off my radar, but when you talk to me sweetly about fonts, I'll watch just about anything. Not the best humor, (really, just going by the names, how very disappointing) but it does start to explain how fonts got into every computer. However, it is still about the fonts so here you go:

New Vista Ad

This is Vista's answer to the Mac vrs PC ads, and is just a taste of what our fiends over at Crispin + Porter + Bogusky have in mind for the Microsoft Brand.

Reebok Migration

Nice shots, music, idea. Man I miss football.


Sure Sony did it first, but that doesn't mean it's not fun in its own way.

Got Your Attention?

Yeah, you were watching.


You know it has hit mainstream when beauty and health take notice, and it gets a name.

What if there were no stop signs and...

The laughs keep rolling in, finally, I have something to show to my family members so they understand why I am going to be late.

Got Milk Paper Style

Horrible Download times, yet worth it. Head on over to Got Milk and check out the beautiful site to play the games, learn a bit, and be entertained. Complete with a ripoff (but still very nice) Ready Mech paper dolls as prizes. The games and puzzles are a it too easy, but art is nice.

Beautiful Designers

Words don't do this justice, they're lips are moving, they're pretty, and....hell, just go watch it. It is my new favorite description for what we do (replacing Monster's When I Grow Up)

Denver Water Campaign

Most of you have probably seen this amazing work from Sukle all over town. They really know how to push good concepts and get people talking. I don't think I know anyone in advertising who doesn't wish they were working for them. Keep up the good work Sukle, we'll all keep envying you.

Have you broken California's new Hands Free Law, then you too can qualify for a discount on the world's sexiest bluetooth handset. Seriously, great promotion. VIA


Everyone is talking about how to not talk to consumers but actually bring them into the brand. Adidas has continued to raise the bar. The last post we had for the All Black team was using their blood for the ink on a poster. this is even better, bring fan's names and support, and put them on the thread they use to make the jersey. Sure, they can't actually read the name, but it is there, using some pretty cool tech, now fans are truly a part of the team. Hit the site for more. VIA


Simple, to the point, memorable, smart, what more could you want. Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Google is Terrifying

Not entirely sure these aren't sanctioned by Google (way too much information about service), but even if they are, they are still great, low budget, concepts. Either way, visit The Vacationers for more of their work.

Your Hockey Smells

Having never actually played hockey, is it too much to assume they already smell like this? Nice ads out of, where else, Cananda. Agency of one of our fabulous judges, Rethink, Vancouver.

General Order

Once again, a view of General Order. He’s a maniac, I think you can tell just by looking at him. Although his intentions are good, he has a way of being a little bit… insane.

There are more, in this flickr group, but the image and description are just perfect. I'd love to see this guy real, solving unpatriotic crime.

Amnesty International

Nice no holds barred work that doesn't try too hard. Air Brussels-Paris, Belgium.

The World Will Now End

After seeing this paradox, the world surely is on its way to collapse, be ready for the end, photoshop effects as don through a camera. Fun idea, but sadly, that is all there is, there is no more. Link

Olympic Logo

Check out this site, with every olympic logo since 1932. And, after perusal, I'd rate the best somewhere in the middle, and surely not Beijing or London.

Solid (no pun intended) concept that I haven't seen before, also, good photography, for a bone. Neogama/BBH, São Paulo, Brazil
