• The Zero Dollar

    Artist Laura Gilbert printed ‘The Zero Dollar’ protesting the breakdown of the American economy. Gilbert distributed 10,000 of the fake greenbacks in front of the New York Stock Exchange on Tuesday, October 7, 2008 to call attention to the economic crisis gripping the nation.

    Shouldn’t the picture on it be George Bush, not Washington? Just sayin’.

    Opening yesterday and running through October 31, The Cover Band show at Gallery 1988 in L.A. gave each artist a classic vinyl album cover to use as their canvas. Amazing concept, spawning amazing work. Check ‘em out on their site. They’re priced right to grab one up.

  • Ahoy, Congrats to Crispin Porter + Bogusky

    / Comments (1)

    Boulder-based (for all those who say Miami) Crispin Porter + Bogusky has been picked by clothing chain Old Navy as the lead creative agency on its $200 million advertising account.

    CP+B will “develop seasonal campaigns that bring the brand’s fun and value-driven aesthetic to life through advertising and compelling in-store experiences,” Old Navy said in a statement late Tuesday. The new ads are scheduled to appear in March, the industry journal AdWeek said on its website. AdWeek said CP+B beat out the TBWA\Chiat\Day agency of Playa del Rey, Calif., for the account.

    It’ll be interesting to see what happens with this notoriously fickle account in Boulder.
