• Levi's Butterflies Under London's Old Street Bridge

    The guy who took the shots used to work on Levi’s and thought this was an interesting way of “tackling the perennial problem they face with recognizability of their finishes/washes.” Very cool, indeed.

  • The Optron Rips It Up

    / Comments (2)

    Improv musician Atsuhiro Ito wields a flickering noise contraption called the “Optron” (or “Optrum”), a miked-up fluorescent light tube he plugs into an array of effects pedals and plays sort of like an electric guitar. The Optron is featured in some Sony Walkman commercials.

  • The Brief

    / Comments (3)

    Sweet idea here from the minds at the Art Director’s Club of Denver. Cool opportunity for you. Maybe?

    The Brief is a student design competition intended to simulate a late night at the agency. A design brief will be developed by a Creative Director and our “client,” Arts Street – a local arts-education non-profit focused on serving underprivileged youth.

    You will partner with 2 intercollegiate teams of 3 students from Colorado colleges and Universities to direct them through 2 hours of concepting (pencil and paper only) and 1.5 hours of digital execution. The Creative Director and Stella Yu, Arts Streets executive director, will select the winning team. Stella will subsequently have the opportunity to implement the generated campaign roughs or finished collateral for Arts Street’s future advertising.

    In addition to receiving valuable real world experience, student winners will receive scholarship money. Prizes will be awarded to the best concept AND the best execution.

    If you’re interested in volunteering for this exciting event, please contact Peter Regenold Bergman at pregenol[at]mscd.edu.

  • Accounts That Should Be In Denver: Denver Museum of Science &amp; Nature

    / Comments (5)

    Minneapolis’ Carmichael Lynch is a good shop. We even kind of like these ads they did for the new dinosaur exhibit at the museum. But can anyone explain why this account, that actually has the word “Denver” in it, is not being serviced by a DENVER agency? Pretty weak on the part of the museum, especially considering a chunk of their operating budget comes from the donations of Coloradans, the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District sales tax and the City and County of Denver (read: your tax dollars). What gives?
