• Mastercard Valentine's Day Stunt. Nice Idea, But...

    / Comments (0)

    So the day for lovers was about a week ago, and most of us probably screwed it up or did something really unoriginal. This guy in the UK teamed up with Mastercard to do something way more dazzling. Couple of questions though: first, why was the coverage for this so awful? We didn’t see it anywhere except for a couple of ad blogs; and second, would you really want to team up with someone like Mastercard for a message of love? Credit Cards don’t exactly get a great rep these days. But saying that, it was a bold thought.

    The artist’s quote on the series: “Love and Hope are wonderful things, but sometimes I have to side with the late George Carlin and his memorable motto: FUCK HOPE.” Ah yes, may he rest in peace.

    The biggest rule changes in the history of Formula One have just occurred. Watch as last season’s car morphs into the current Red Bull Racing car, the RB5, showing all the bodywork changes from nose to rear wing. Good design has an affect on nearly everything in today’s world.

  • Smart fortwo: World's Smallest Video Game

    / Comments (1)

    More than any other agency, we’re consistently excited to see new work from Germany’s Jung von Matt. For the Smart fortwo car, bouncing off the strategy of “Big fun in small space,” they’ve just created the world’s smallest advergame. It fits in a 16×16 pixel space where the favicon usually sits next to the web address in your browser.

    The game was placed on major automotive websites, accompanied by banners that directed people to play. The idea was created in partnership with French web developer Mathieu ‘P01’ HENRI. Wonderific.
