• 30 Days 30 Pieces

    / Comments (1)

    David Schell, one of the creative heads at texture media, just launched a rad project in which he and a group of 19 other creative souls will each create one piece of art every day for the next 30 days. The hope is to jump start the free thinking artist in David, and in the others, who have lost their inner hand-craftsman to a keyboard and mouse.

    Follow the progress at 30days30pieces.com. And if you want to get in on it in future months that will feature David as participant or curator, send him an email through the site.

  • Gap: Sound of Color

    / Comments (1)

    The San Francisco creative development and production company, Rehab, has just delivered a compelling concept for GAP based on a brief that asked them for an unusual idea for its spring “Color Redefined” campaign. They recruited a variety of bands – The Raveonettes, Dntel, Swizz Beatz, The Blakes and Marié Digby – to create songs based on specific colors. Then, a group of up-and-coming directors shot videos for the songs. Coolest of all, Denver’s own motion graphic firm, Spillt, did the end title cards for all the spots.

    The site, soundofcolor.com, is live for only one month – through March 15. The tracks are being given away as DRM-free MP3s. For more on the story, check out AdAge.

    Here’s Swizz Beatz’s song and the video directed by Tom Gatsoulis created for the color green:
