    / Comments (5)

    Interactive shop, The1stMovement, is movin’ and shankin’ in three impressive ways. Effective November 1st, they’ll be out of the Tech Center and into the new TAXI development at 3457 Ringsby Court, #302 in Denver’s River North neighborhood. Large! They’ve also hired David Schell as Creative Director – previously of texturemedia before the company merged with Crispin Porter + Bogusky four months ago. Extra-Large! Huge news for a relatively new shop on the scene (who also won Silver at the 2008 W³ Awards for client G4TV) we fully expect to keep making waves.

  • 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.
