We have Wendy’s of all brands to thank for finally killing off one of hip hop’s most horrific trends – Auto-Tune voice manipulation. At least, so says Jay Z who spoke to a Chicago radio station recently, telling them his latest song, “Death of Auto-Tune,” was a reaction to a Wendy’s spot that parodied the ubiquitous pitch-correction technology. “I just think in hip-hop, when a trend becomes a gimmick, it’s time to move on,” Jay said. Thank the sweet lord above.
Despite this losing economy, boutique agency ToolStudios is winning. At year’s end in 2008, the shop reached a 40% increase in revenue compared to ’07. Pair that with a six-year history of steady 20% annual increases, and you’ve got a pretty impressive thing cooking.
ToolStudios, a full-service advertising and design agency located seven miles north of Boulder in Niwot, has achieved this glowing report card “merely by word-of-mouth and client referral.” Tool specializes in brand interactive building, identity development and print design.

Except this one actually will work for food. His name is Steve Perfors and he’s been standing on the corner of Speer and Auraria in his Sunday’s best with his trusty sign all week, looking for a job. Perfors is 26 years old and currently attends the University of Colorado at night.
In the past three weeks, he says he’s put in more than 400 applications for jobs ranging from corporate careers to janitor’s positions. (At least that’s what he’s telling the media and his old man who always said, “When you’re unemployed, your job is finding a job.”)
Ever considered art direction, dude? That’s one fine-ass sign.
