New Orea commercial, all the feeeeels! <3
Adam Young has done it again. So precious.
Don’t care if I’ve reblogged this before, it’s completely precious.
For me (as a down to earth person from the low lands), it’s very mushy and “American” in the way it is filmed, BUT I LOVE the core idea!
Dove hired a forensic artist to draw how women see themselves versus how others see them - the results are moving.
This awesome viral was created by my colleagues at JWT Amsterdam :) very proud!
My mum showed me this. They’re reopening the Rijksmuseum, where you can find famous paintings like De Nachtwacht (The Night Watch). Thought this was a rather interesting way to announce the reopening.
A Dove photoshop action to reverse every photo to it’s original state.
The first Billboard which produces water. We need MOAR!
If you want to have a look in the Real Mad Men world. Here you got an angry memo dated june 29th 1973, from FHV/BBDO, a famous advertising agency from the Netherlands.
I tried to translate it as best as possible:
A darn angry memo.
Everyone knows that we are not childish in allowing quite a few liberties
But often it seems that not everyone can cope with that freedom.
Once in a while getting in late is for some always getting in late.
In between the afternoon catching an extra half hour is for some complete afternoons getting drunk without one single phone call.
Casually drinking a glass of sherry or a beer on the daytime, turns often with some into a (free) drunkenness, which creates aggressiveness which leads to people saying unsavory things to each other, which ought not to be said anyway and turns into regret on a later level.
Once in a while making a small chit-chat with whomever degenerates with some to hours of loud jabbering, hanging and laughing.
Once in a while doing something flirty in the direction of somebody else, often makes them so horny what leads to fondling sex.
It is gradually getting out of line.
You must be worth your freedom.
Where is your discipline? Where is the team spirit that we need to keep this business going?
Do you have to put a lock on the fridge? Must the sherry be put behind a lock? Do we have to hide the keys in Hinke’s drawer with strict surveillance?
We are no moralists. Booze and sex may be in everyone’s reach. But you must not expand your private boundaries to your work environment. This will lead to mistakes. This will degenerate to the degradation of this company, and will cost us clients one day.
Who wants to get boozed must search it after 5.30 in a sentimental bar here in Amsterdam.
Who wants to have an affair with one or another must do his/hers business between 12.30 and 13.30 and after 5.30.
Who wants to sleep with his favorite type, moves his/her ass to a locations outside the office walls and screws him- or herself completely dry.
En here’s another thing:
As you have may noticed, all the plants got a complete check-up last Saturday, were sprayed (for lice and other bugs) and where necessary repotted and renewed.
As some of you still don’t understand are the plants in the room and hallways for decoration of the building and for glory of all the FHV employees. They are not standing as disguised ashtrays, paper baskets, sinks or to serve as cutting clones of the mother plant. Who willfully destroys plants or uses the pots to deposit their waste in it, have to do their living in their office without any trace of green.
And goddammit clean your fucking rooms.
And don’t be a pussy about this memo.
Have fun tonight in the Shaffy-theatre.
Nigerian artisan Ojo Obaniyi from Ibadan has applied his skill in weaving in an unusually creative way to advertise his business.
Obaniyi, who has practiced the craft for 20 years, has covered the interior and exterior of his Volkswagen pickup with raffia palm cane, including the entire car body, the wheel caps, chairs, steering wheel and dashboard in an effort to attract attention from passersby.
Obaniyi says of his handiwork:
’I wanted to prove a point that it is not only the educated elite that can make positive changes in society. We, the artisans also have talents to
effect a change and make a positive impact in the society.
That is why I decided that I too must do something that will make people to recognize me and know me across the whole world and by extension prove to the world that African and indeed the entire black race have very talented people.’
I love it when brands create holiday campaigns that aren’t completely self centered… And this is a pretty good attempt by the guys at LEGO, with their ‘Happy Holidays’ campaign, which challenged people to create real world LEGO connections as p (via LEGO: Brickmented Reality Holiday Campaign)
