Art Director's Club of Denver staged their annual Paper Fashion Show last night. It was a really great time and a classy event that's evolved a long way since its humble beginnings. Here are two pics and a vid featuring the winners.

In the latest Vodafone campaign by Amsterdam-based agencies THEY and Achtung!, a virtual fortuneteller, Madame Tre Sesti tells visitors’ fortunes based on their social network profiles.
When visitors go to madametresesti.com, Madame Tre Sesti reads Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Hyves (a Dutch social network) to make her predictions.
Late last year, Vodafone launched a new application, Vodafone 360. This service is an answer to the question of how consumers cope with a growing number of profiles on different social networks. It lists all your updates from different social networks for each person in a user’s address book.
Like the application, Madame Tre Sesti sees all social networks and thus comes to surprising and sometimes confrontational conclusions about your online alter ego: Which Facebook friend systematically ignore you? Are people really waiting for your tweets? Is your work / personal balance right? No matter your relationship status, who is actually your perfect match?
For the 5-month realization of the campaign, Vodafone worked directly with Facebook, Twitter and Hyves. An application was developed that uses the APIs (Application Program Interface) of the social networks. The application draws on a database with over 600 different audio and video clips that were produced for this campaign.
Just wanted to share these with you. The first image is from the blog The Vile Plutocrat – founded on the moniker 'Exposing the Excretions of the Entitled Class.' It won best blog at SXSW.
The second image is for a site called TPUTH – a 'Socially Generated Newspaper for Geeks, Designers and Venture Capitalists.' Fresh designs on both fronts, in a world overwhelmed with templated Wordpress turds.
Adidas Japan has kicked off its latest phase of World Cup activities with an animated comic featuring national hero, Nakamura Shunske. The digital piece, created by TBWA\HAKUHODO, is the first in a series describing the journey of the Japan team through to the World Cup and will help create the spark that will start a revolution with Japanese fans as they cheer on the National Team.
Strollling by the newish uber-pointy and shiny Denver Art Museum, we discovered a bike rack wrapped with a colorful knitted piece - and artsy craftsy tag (see pic.)
Now, tagging with yarn is not a new trend, as we reported a while back but it's always pleasant to see wannabe grannies tagging stuff up. A look at the blog of the Ladies Fancy Work Society reveals more goodness. As does the story from Channel 7 seen here.
