    For anyone who grew up on Legos, it’s hard to look at these print ads without taking a moment to remember the good old days, back when all you had to worry about was trying to stay up past your bedtime.

  • Weight Watchers: The History of Dieting

    / Comments (0)

    Advertising in the diet industry has been like a broken record for the last, say, one million years. Nice to see Weight Watchers bringing hope back to a hopelessly bloated industry via this fine spot from Hornet Inc.‘s Peter Sluszka.

  • Adorn Interiors Identity Via Sukle

    / Comments (5)

    We’ve never been one to hide our admiration for shops that truly get it here in Colorado. What’s impressive about Sukle (among many things) is that they even spend the time to put conceptual thinking into their identity projects for clients.

    The idea in this work for a local interior designer it to make the business cards look like old wallpaper sample chips (laminating different scraps of wallpaper on the backs) – with the envelopes themselves actually being made from wallpaper scraps. Keep it comin’, Sukle.

  • I Wish (That Girls Were More Like Pot Noodle)

    The ol’ “ad message as musical parody” is often done. Still, there is something about the twisted lyrics and 80s soft haze music-video/high school stage production quality of this spot for Pot Noodle that delights us. From Mother, London.

  • This Fashion Statement Says: 9 Dead in Weekend Blaze

    Apparently you can now buy T-shirts from CNN featuring your favorite headlines of the day. Visit CNN.com and read the latest news. If there is a T-shirt icon next to a headline, it’s available for purchase. It looks like they are being selective with which headlines are T-shirt worthy. For example, Weird fish leave sea, spawn on beach is available on a nice 100%-cotton shirt, while Dad mistakes young son for prey, shoots is only available on a commemorative coffee mug.

  • Naked Juice Updates

    / Comments (4)

    Eric Kiker, local wordsmith, just let us know that the new corporate site for Naked Juice he worked on in partnership with L.A. interactive agency, BLITZ, has launched. Check it out.

    Kiker and BLITZ also created a quiz site to get Starbucks baristas savvy with Naked’s juices – as part of the brand’s recent introduction into Starbucks stores. Fairly sexy offerings if you’re asking us. Just wish the development work could have stayed here in town.
