    We’ve been rolling around two ideas we wanted to get your take on before we put the work in on them.

Agency: Leo Burnett, Buenos Aires.

There’s a website tied into the effort as well as a plan to turn the footage into TV spots. Frickin’ gold.

    To demonstrate this extreme level of account service, they’ve launched the Virtual Account Manager 1.0.1 to assist clients with any questions they may need answered from December 24 to January 2 while the shop is closed. Nice idea.

    Funky Forest is an interactive ecosystem where children create trees with their body and then divert the water flowing from the waterfall to the trees to keep them alive. The health of the trees contributes to the overall health of the forest and the types of creatures that inhabit it.
