    A month ago, we featured the website that Factory Design Labs created to augment the 24 Hours of Le Mans documentary for their client Audi. Today, Creativity posted one of the trailers from the site developed in partnership with Digital Kitchen. Totally killer and worth another viewing.

  • Hirschfeld Leaves 250 Poor Souls Stranded

    We were getting geared up to do our assessment of the demise of National Hirschfeld—a printer that’s been around for 102 years in Denver that days ago announced it will close at the end of the month after declaring Chapter 7 bankruptcy. 250 (likely unsuspecting) people lost their jobs. The folks over at Notchode beat us to the punch, however, writing a well thought-out piece on the matter. So go read that if you want to hear the honest truth.

    Ray-Ban has birthed another video in their Never Hide series. First came the man coming out of the cow. Now, come the disco ballers. Anyone feel like the tone of this campaign is waffling between weird and wanky?

  • Cashing In On The Inauguration

    / Comments (0)

    With the unprecedented way in which Barack Obama was both covered and commanded the media over the last year, it’s interesting to see who’s continuing to ride that wave (for their own benefit) right through the day he’s sworn in.

    Marvel Comics yesterday released a special issue of The Amazing Spider-Man with the President-elect on the cover. In issue #583, Spider-man stops the Chameleon from spoiling Obama’s inauguration. Marvel editor in chief Joe Quesada says, “It was a natural after we learned the new president is a Spider-Man fan. This is not so much a pro-Obama statement but a tip of the hat to having a Spider-Man fan in the White House.” It’s also a way to make some serious cash. The issue is available for $3.99 at local comic book stores and is expected to sell-out.

    USA Today is planning a special 48-page magazine-style publication for the price of $4.95, according to Editor Ken Paulson. Have you noticed anyone else trying to ride the inaugural coattails out there?

    Tough to pull this off in too many theaters, but it’s a sweet piece for RespiraBene breathe-right strips that will inevitably get passed around online anyway. Agency: Grey.
