• Boulder's First Mobile Community Meeting Space

    / Comments (0)

    2009 marks Special Transit’s 14th Birthday, and they are celebrating with a new public bus line to be introduced in conjunction with their anniversary: A Mobile Community Meeting Space — MO.Free (MObile Freedom). Special Transit is looking outside of itself to see MO.Free come to life, and would like to involve the public in this process on a number of different levels; from design ideas and green materials, to media outlets, trades experience and financial opportunities. For more info, link to Boulderspace and learn more details about this project.

    We’re honestly not 100% sure we know what’s going on here, but what we think they’re saying is that they want to convert an old bus into a new mobile office, and they’d like some help getting it done. If this sounds interesting to you, go to the official page and check out all the stuff and skills they need to make this thing happen.

    Digital Events is an accomplished motion graphics firm working out of downtown Denver. They’ve done stuff for Rob & Big and that makes them “A-OK” by us.

  • In The Egotist Inbox: Vermilion

    One of the agency names that’s keeps popping up Vermilion. Here’s some of the great stuff they’ve sent our way.

    Their new campaign for Tendril Inc, an energy management system provider for utilities companies and their customers this tasty little website, clean in it’s design yet loaded with useful information.

    Vermilion also found an interesting topical way to communicate the need for what Tendril does. In August, they set the homepage to flicker on and off and go dark, to honor the five-year anniversary of the blackout that darkened 40 million homes.

    They also created this annual report for Global Greengrants Fund, a Boulder-based nonprofit that works for environmental justice across the world. The focus this year was the effect gold mining has in Ghana.

    There’s another intrusive Mac banner on The New York Times today. In the past, they’ve only been up for one day. If you miss the real thing, the YouTube video below will give you the idea. Why aren’t more brands doing this?

  • Denver Designer Breaks Down the Oklahoma Thunder Logo

    / Comments (12)

    If you don’t follow comments closely on The Egotist, it would have been hard to catch this one dropped by our loyal reader, Bubba, under our original post about the new logo designed for the Oklahoma Thunder basketball team.

    However, we thought Bubba’s breakdown of the OKC Thunder logo was particularly dead-on and entertaining and wanted to make sure you didn’t miss it. This might have been a good time to use your real name, dear Bubba, since you’re out of work. Someone might be interested in a conversation with you after seeing this. Who knows.

    Here’s what Crispin Porter + Bogusky brewed up for the UK market. Never mind the ad, how about the naming of the burger? The Meat Beast Whopper. Flat-out fantastic.
