Something nice about the intrigue of the fancy trick shots on the fuse ball table. But what is really great is the YouTube Extensions and the behind the scenes:
Either the shots are real, and they are pretty amazing, or the whole thing is fake, and that too, is amazing. I'm going with the latter, the shots don't look quite right, but the extended idea is quite intriguing.

Just in case you missed it, and we are pretty sure you might have, we held our Annual Show Judging over this last weekend. Big props and thanks to our esteemed judges, In order, top to bottom) Paul Elledge of Paul Elledge Photography, Sam Maclay of 3 advertising, Blake Bakken of Venables Bell & Partners, and Clint! Runge of Archrival. You can see them at work above.
They proved to have that wonderfully critical eye. Found what we knew to be true, there is some really top notch work in Denver. They even found a little time on Friday night to inspire. Who knows, if you look closely enough, you might be able to see your work under their approving eye.

At first I really loved the joke of a X-ray Pinup Calendar, then realized, it was as interesting as a regular pin-up calendar (maybe I just really like x-rays). But the brilliant part is who it is for. Butter, Berlin/Duesseldorf, Germany for EIZO medical imaging high precision displays.

These are really wonderful. Breakthrough communication. Rethink, Vancouver, Canada (Former ADCD Awardshow Judge was the Writer)
Golden Billboard: A billboard wrapped in 22-karat gold has been unveiled by Rethink to promote the new “Treasure!” summer exhibit at the Vancouver’s science-based museum. The 18.5-square metre billboard–which took three weeks and $11,000 to produce–is the first of its kind in the world, said Rethink spokeswoman Jennifer Newstead. The golden behemoth was created with the help of Brian Dedora, a master gilder in Vancouver. Located near the busy Granville Island market, the billboard was covered with gold pounded so thinly that only 56 grams of the precious metal was needed to cover the entire surface. The three-dimensional letters that spell out the headline “2 oz. of Gold Can Cover A Billboard” are covered with gold as well.
Diamond Billboard: A billboardwith glued 9,000 dazzling glass “diamonds” to a billboard to promote Science World’s Treasure exhibit, and to dramatize this fact: compared to most other gems, diamonds aren’t all that rare.

Beautiful work. To bad it was for a contest to promote Moby. Like the video, like Moby, hate the idea of this and 499 other videos submitted to have a chance to "win." Not even sure this winning entry was paid for.

Love the idea and the spirit, can't imagine anyone really using it after the rubbing that is. Beyond that, great product tie in with the VR code and awkward/great insights. AKQA

Undecided on this, but it is hard to look away. Not sure they are living up to their promise of celebrating originality by delivering a parody. Then again, I liked it better than the original anyway.
Sam Maclay, creative director and a founding partner of 3 Advertising in Albuquerque, New Mexico, sits down with Art Directors Club Denver and talks about past projects, what it's like to run an agency and what he's looking forward to seeing in Denver.

NBot sure on what the cost would be, but the insight is fantastic and the method is wonderful. Brilliant idea. Designers Clara Gaggero, Adrian Westaway and Jaako Tuomivara.
Seen a bit of this running around lately, but this is the first successful use of it for advertising that has come across our desks, and now yours. (We say it is successful since it is a strong message and strong medium)
Great idea for a small, often overlooked, problem, what to do with the wet, used tea bag. Place taht spent tea bag on the coaster and have it create a work of art for you as you sip your tea. Simple idea that involves the tea-drinker. Makes the experience more memorable. Yuree S Lim and Jleun Yang
