• AIGA's 15th Annual Heart Art Auction

    / Comments (1)

    Tonight is the 15th year of this event. We’ve had a good time boozing it up, seeing old friends and purchasing heart art (some digging through pieces required) over the last couple years of this fundraiser. The night centers around schmoozing and a silent auction, in which you write down what you’re willing to pay for a piece—and it’s yours if you’re the highest bidder when time expires.

    Sounds like they’ve added an attractive new wrinkle this year, as well. OPEN BAR. Probably worth the $20 at the door, helping AIGA Colorado and Project Angel Heart, if you don’t have anything better going this humpday eve.

  • Helping Denver Suck Less: Postmodern Company

    / Comments (7)

    With only a handful of really plush places to do your post work here in Colorado, Postmodern Company should be at the top of your list. Aside from having the latest, greatest in equipment (which is sort of a mandatory), they’ve got an exceptionally talented, laid back staff of picture, sound and motion design pros to take your project sailing skyward. A-listers, without the a-hole factor that usually accompanies it.

    Their awards include national Emmy, Clio, Academy Award and others. And their clients include Crispin Porter + Bogusky, Cactus, Leo Burnett, Paramount Pictures and dozens more. Give them your business, and they’ll give you their best.

  • Microsoft: I'm a PC (Kylie) Via Crispin Porter + Bogusky

    / Comments (1)

    This spot appeared on the Grammy Awards last night as a continuation of Microsoft’s ‘I’m a PC’ campaign created by our friends in Boulder. Out of all the spots thus far, we think this one is the most honest and real—and, therefore, the most likable. Adfreak thinks it may be the launch of a mini campaign featuring rookies who demonstrate how easy it is to use Vista.
