    / Comments (0)

    The folks at Overdrive Interactive have done some dirty work for us all and created a nifty social media map. If you’re looking to boost your cred and get a leg up on the realm, this might be the best place to start.

    Warning, there’s a PDF involved.

  • Apple's First Huge Announcement

    / Comments (1)

    Big Apple news coming out today. Here’s the first highly-anticipated new piece of technology.

    Apple Introduces Revolutionary New Laptop With No Keyboard

  • A Bold Statement About Humans

    / Comments (1)

    You might look at this latest installation from Mark Jenkins and thinks it’s humorous. We think it’s just a sad statement about how little people are willing to help each other out today. (By the way, it’s a dummy. But the point remains.)

  • Bogusky's Book Is Out

    / Comments (3)

    You may remember Alex Bogusky of Crispin Porter + Bogusky fame has been penning a book about, of all things, dieting. The 9-Inch Diet is officially in stores this week. The New York Post has a little blurb on how the book came about that we found interesting.

    His “eureka” moment came after buying a 1940s lake house. The co-chairman of Crispin Porter + Bogusky, an ad agency, discovered the old kitchen cabinets wouldn’t fit his dinner plates. So he did some research and found out that in the past 30 years, plates have gone from 8.5 inches in diameter to 12 inches.

    Buy it on Amazon here if you went slightly overboard like we did in December. Although you are looking fine in those sweatpants.

    Don’t know about you, but it takes our all every day to stay sharp at just this advertising stuff. It’s not the same for Sean Herman. By day, he’s a designer and a skateboarder who tours the world. By night, he’s DJ Idull tearing up vinyl as he does below. Shitload of talent in one body, setting the bar for Denver.

  • CP+B Copying... Itself?

    / Comments (2)

    On the heels of the BK Whopper Virgins campaign (which we happen to think will dominate Cannes this year), Crispin Porter + Bogusky is rolling out another taste-test campaign – this time for Domino’s oven-baked sandwiches vs. Subway’s whatever-they-call-em-shit-flavored sandwiches.

    Funny that Brandfreak notes, “in a recent BrandIndex survey of 5,000 consumers, on a scale of -100 to 100, Subway food received an overall score of 55.1, while Domino’s pulled in a -8.3.” Not sure who they’ve got tasting those sanguinies, but it’s certainly not the gourmet fools over here at The Egotist.
