  • Behind the Scenes at The CP+B Creativity Cover Shoot

    / Comments (1)

    Tyler Stableford, one of the absolute finest photographers in Colorado, poked his head into our inbox yesterday with a cool behind-the-scenes glimpse at the cover shoot for Creativity Magazine’s Ad Agency of the Year with the heads at Crispin Porter + Bogusky. Here’s what he had to say.

    “Last month I photographed Alex Bogusky, Rob Reilly and Andrew Keller of CP+B for the “Ad Agency of the Year” cover of Creativity Magazine. We shot it just after a big snowfall on Loveland Pass in mid-December – the idea was to place the guys in an iconic Colorado high-mountain surrounding, much like you might shoot a NYC ad exec amidst a Manhattan skyline.”

    “It was a challenging shoot – particularly for these guys who had to take the blasts of frigid spindrift every few minutes (and for the lights, which kept getting blown over despite sandbags etc). It’s a quick jpg so the color, contrast, etc. isn’t very accurate, but it tells a good story. The guys were wonderfully cooperative, despite the bone-chilling temps and gusty winds blowing snow in their faces.”

    In other recent news, Tyler joined Canon as one of their Explorers of Light this year, and is lecturing around the country as one of their ambassadors. He’s also just returned from shooting a volunteer multimedia documentary on orphans in Ethiopia for an NGO doing work through child-sponsorship programs that helps support kids in their communities.

  • A Bold Statement About Humans

    You might look at this latest installation from Mark Jenkins and thinks it’s humorous. We think it’s just a sad statement about how little people are willing to help each other out today. (By the way, it’s a dummy. But the point remains.)

  • Bogusky's Book Is Out

    / Comments (3)

    You may remember Alex Bogusky of Crispin Porter + Bogusky fame has been penning a book about, of all things, dieting. The 9-Inch Diet is officially in stores this week. The New York Post has a little blurb on how the book came about that we found interesting.

    His “eureka” moment came after buying a 1940s lake house. The co-chairman of Crispin Porter + Bogusky, an ad agency, discovered the old kitchen cabinets wouldn’t fit his dinner plates. So he did some research and found out that in the past 30 years, plates have gone from 8.5 inches in diameter to 12 inches.

    Buy it on Amazon here if you went slightly overboard like we did in December. Although you are looking fine in those sweatpants.

    Don’t know about you, but it takes our all every day to stay sharp at just this advertising stuff. It’s not the same for Sean Herman. By day, he’s a designer and a skateboarder who tours the world. By night, he’s DJ Idull tearing up vinyl as he does below. Shitload of talent in one body, setting the bar for Denver.
