Made Movement has just released a new web spot on behalf of Seventh Generation, as a part of the ever-expanding "Campaign for a Toxin-Free Generation" online hub. The "Streaking Baby" spot introduces Seventh Generation's line of baby care — free from fragrances, chlorine-processing and societal norms. The take home: without toxins, life is just more fun.
Says Dave Schiff, Made's Creative Director, "This is the first generation of kids growing up around truly effective plant-based products, and they have a completely different perspective than we did. The digital hub is really meant to give you a peek at the world from their point of view. Between videos, user-generated content and an interactive, sharable book, you really get a sense of how freewheeling kids can be without sketchy chemicals around."

Failure can be our greatest teacher. In Colorado, we want to celebrate the innovators and entrepreneurs who have walked the line of risk and innovation and found success. The Colorado Innovation Network (COIN), yesterday launched the Glorious Failure Innovation Challenge — a statewide business competition that encourages creativity and responsible risk-taking. The Glorious Failure Innovation Challenge is designed to showcase and accelerate innovators with high-growth potential ventures who are willing to share their lessons learned from obstacles and adversity, encouraging out-of-the-box and creative thinking within the state of Colorado.
Five finalists will be selected to pitch at the COIN Summit on August 29, 2013, including a finalist selected by the community, and four finalists will be selected by a selection committee, The overall winner will be selected by the COIN Summit delegation and will receive $50,000 cash and other in-kind prizes.

One up-and-coming Pitmaster is about to get his dream shot — to go head-to-head with a BBQ Legend. Will he face Myron Mixon, Tuffy Stone or Johnny Trigg? He won't find out until moments before the competition.
Over the course of 8 hours, they’ll cook head-to-head in three delicious categories — with host Marc Ryan throwing in a few twists along the way. Pride, the ultimate BBQ bragging rights and the Smoked championship belt are on the line. An expert judging panel will decide their fate. Who will stand tall — and who's gonna get Smoked? Smoked is produced by Citizen Pictures for Destination America. The one-hour special, part of Meat Week, fittingly premieres on Memorial Day, Monday, May 27.
What are your fave BBQ spots in town? We need a list.
"It’s crazy how well the agency and the store work together. I wish we could say we planned it that way, but that would be bullshit. We fell into it. But the truth is having a store bolted to an agency does some very cool things. For instance, it allows you to do market research. We sent out a dozen questions to our shopping community and got 2,000 responses in two hours. Then we turned those into a white paper and walked it over to our clients. That makes you very smart as an agency. And of course, we have familiarity with consumers we never would, so we can talk to our clients a little more as peers instead of being “the agency people” who don’t understand life in the retail trenches. Then there’s looking at it the other way — having an agency bolted to a store. Which, of course, has huge advantages, too."
