    To prove that Montana’s 'Best of BBQ Sampler' event is irresistible, the restaurant tried to shoot an entire ad campaign by bartering with BBQ ribs, sausages, chicken, brisket and shrimp. And it worked.

    Created by Vancouver-based ad agency One Twenty Three West, Montana’s surprised real businesses in Toronto by simply walking in and offering a plate of BBQ meat in exchange for goods and services. But the bartering didn’t end there. The entire production crew and advertising agency also agreed to take part of their payment in BBQ. Try that shit with tofu.

  • The Blind Photographer

    / Comments (0)

    Brenden Borrellini was born completely deaf and with limited sight that developed into complete blindness. Unstoppable as an inquisitive human force, after showing Brenden the buttons on a camera he very quickly took the initiative and started taking pictures. The issue? How could Brendan be afforded the chance to "see" his photos?

    Steve Mayer-Miller, Artistic Director for Crossroad Arts — an organization that develops opportunities for people with a disability to access and participate in the arts — wanted to give Brenden feedback on the shots he was taking. So he researched and found devices that would enable a two-dimensional photograph to become a three-dimensional photograph so that Brendan could be able to interpret the textures in the photograph. Wonderful human achievement on a number of levels.
