Let me be brief



Gotta say I like the look of this film.

In fact I'm hanging out for it so I can play it for my colleagues at work.

And if Mr Frank Gehry himself says a good brief is important then why oh why do we continue to put up with substandard ones?

Should you check your email?

Pretty hard trying to read this email so maybe try clicking it to make it bigger. Failing that maybe go check your email.

How they make Crayolas



This afternoon I had to go with my son the the art supply store to pick up some art supplies.

Used to be he was happy with a set of felt tip pens or a box of Crayolas. Not anymore.

Anyway wandering the store choking on some of the prices I couldn't thinking back to how much Max loved Crayolas when he was little.

Which may explain why I enjoyed this little film so much.

Restaurant at Harvey Nichols

When I lived in London I often used to see Harvey Nichols posters in the Underground.

And I imagine at full size these beautifully art directed posters would look quite wonderful.

But even tiny like this they are still beautiful.

You just need to squint a little before you get them.

Next time label it



Always wanted a labeller when I was a kid. Now I simply wish I'd made this ad.

Stan and Seth

No I haven't seen this person.

Yet.

But that is all about to change.

I'll be at the Art Gallery of NSW today where I will be spending the day with Seth Godin and a handful of marketing types.

To say I am excited is a major understatement!

The goodness of dairy

Every once in a while I see an idea that I know has come from the childhood of the creative team.

This is one of those ideas.

Wonderful headlines and great photography.

The campaign was shot not by a big name photographer but by blogger Stephanie Congdon Barnes.

Gorgeous work by the always reliable W&K London.

Who shot the Messenger?

It's been absolutely ages since i used MSN Messenger.

Years in fact.

Which probably explains why I didn't know it had been discontinued.

Oh well. Best go check my Facebook!

The steady hand of Weisgerber



I could sit and stare at this little film all day. It is utterly mesmerising.

Glen Weisgerber is a self taught artist and master pinstriper.

His work has graced literally hundreds of trucks, custom bikes, race cars guitars and more.

If you like what you see search him up on YouTube for more hand lettering demos.
