  • Michael Bierut Churns Butter

    Bierut, our favorite design academic, talks up the good ol’ days of rubber cement.

    The technology we have at our disposal is dazzling, and our efficiency is such that clients expect fast solutions and nearly instantaneous updates. We are proud to deliver them. Still, I wonder if we haven’t lost something in the process: the deliberation that comes with a slower pace, the attention to detail required when mistakes can’t be undone with the click of a mouse. Younger designers hearing me talk this way react as if I’m getting sentimental about the days when we all used to churn our own butter.

Out of all the spots thus far, we think this one is the most honest and real—and, therefore, the most likable. Adfreak thinks it may be the launch of a mini campaign featuring rookies who demonstrate how easy it is to use Vista.

  • Mini's Augmented Reality Print Ad

    / Comments (4)

    For those who say the print medium is dying, we say shut your mouth and check out this very cool way it could be brought screaming back to life. Last year, Mini created this print ad using augmented reality. When the ad is held up to your computer’s webcam, a 3D rendering of the new Mini convertible magically appears on your screen. The future uses for this technology are boggling our minds.

    P.S. Here’s another sweet example from LEGO that shows you what’s inside the box before you buy it at the toy store.
