• Eye Jewelry

    / Comments (6)

    Eye Jewellery is a concept by Dutch designer Eric Klarenbeek who explores the potential of jewelry as an integral part of the human body – a combination of a pair of contact lenses and a string of tiny crystals makes a jewel that joins the movements of the eye and eyelid.

    In retrospect, the new mark looks pretty good on-product, no? Although $1.2 billion to spend on this rework still seems absurd, no? Yes?

    The Unfinished Swan is a first-person painting game set in an entirely white world. Players can splatter paint to help them find their way through an unusual garden. The game is still in development and no release plans have been announced. The goal is to have a near-finished version ready by March of 2009.

  • Stapleton's New Site Via FL2

    / Comments (11)

    FL2 did Denver a favor last week when it launched the new site for everyone’s favorite WASP nest, Stapleton.

    The site is a joy to explore, even if it does seem a bit large for a standard resolution screen. We were particularly impressed by the interactive Google Maps integration (click the tab on the left), though we almost wonder if that whole section shouldn’t have been dumped simply because you get a giant aerial view of the depressing no-mans land which surrounds the community.

    The site also features..

    • Flash Panoramas are “deep-linked” (you can use your back button) or link directly to those sections
    • Flash / (x)HTML Hybrid site totally driven by our CMS tool
    • Google Search integration sortable by sub-domain
    Funny IE6 specific messaging asking users to upgrade

    Excellent art direction, easy to find content and original use of technology. It’s great to see this sort of thing come out of Denver.

    Oh one last thing – Where’s the favicon, guys?

  • Karsh\Hagan Interns Promote The Denver 50 Show

    / Comments (4)

    From local Karsh\Hagan interns Justin McCammon (copywriter, UNC graduate) and Camille King (art director, CU graduate, camille.king[at]colorado.edu), here’s a promo for the upcoming Denver 50 show. About the piece, Justin said, “We tried to work with the established theme of “Death to the 50” and sort of a Sin City aesthetic established in the call for entries video released earlier. Camille drew the entire cityscape by hand and I think it looks pretty amazing. She also made my words look pretty good too, which always helps.”

    There’s also a Twitter campaign going on for the Denver 50 that’s counting down the 50 days until the show by giving out a clue every day as to what work made it in.

    Benjamin Palmer, CEO of The Barbarian Group, just said this in Adweek: “We review people’s portfolios here quite often and one thing that stands out is how few advertising copywriters actually blog. It’s really amazing. An entire copywriting Web site might consist of 500 words. What’s needed now are copywriters who not just write entire Web sites, but actively blog. Hire based on someone’s genuine personal motivation to be part of the current social fabric.” Submissions to become a contributor on our site due by midnight tonight.
