    In the race for agencies to outsmart each other with the development of their own websites, Charlotte, NC’s BooneOakley wins. They’ve created what they deem to be “the first YouTube-based agency website,” consisting of linked videos and centered on the story of Billy—the disastrously failed marketing director.

    “We needed a new way to tell our story, and today the best forum for a story is YouTube, where we can use narration and really crappy animation. As an embeddable video, the new BooneOakley website presents our work in a unique, and also more easily accessible, way. And it can live anywhere that supports YouTube videos, including blogs, other websites, and many cell phones,” said BooneOakley co-creative director David Oakley.

  • Is There Room for Another Creative Awards Competition?

    / Comments (5)

    AIGA Colorado thinks so. They’ve worked over the last 2 years to develop a competition to annually reward sustainable design—a concept that’s now successfully been “sold in” at the national level of AIGA. The AIGA (Re)designAwards is open to all designers, illustrators, creative professionals, students and teachers of design in the U.S., even those who aren’t members of AIGA.

    A sustainable world is one where designers, organizations and companies work together with an ethical and ecological mindset to achieve the well-being of people and ecosystems. AIGA (Re)designAwards is a design competition honoring sustainable and socially responsible work done by professionals across the nation.

    Do you feel this show has a place in the world of creative competitions? Will it carve out its own niche and grow in importance as the movement does? Or just be another competition, blending into a long list of others?

  • Drunken Meat Heads Do Not Appreciate The King's Behavior

    / Comments (2)

    If you’ve ever woken a meat head from slumber (especially one who didn’t have his late-night meat meal before crawling into the sack), you’ll know it’s much like awakening a grizzly. This is the wrath the King and his cronies must endure in the latest BK spots promoting the fast food joint’s late-night hours. Beware. Advertising Agency: Crispin Porter + Bogusky, Boulder.

  • Blue Moon Hits the Boob Tube for the First Time

    / Comments (4)

    Steve Hall over at Adrants likes this beer spot because it ain’t your typical beer spot. No bikinis. No women in bikinis. No guys doing stupid stuff, like wearing bikinis. No horses or lizards or dalmatians. Just a relaxing, soothing, easy-to-grasp piece about the crafting of Blue Moon. We like it too. Advertising Agency: The Integer Group, Denver.
