A concrete resume

Click the pic if you want a closer look at this concrete resume by Andreas Conrad.

He's a young architect looking to get noticed.

Now I've seen a lot (and I do mean a lot) of gimmicky promo pieces and resumes in my time.

And I can't work out if this is one of the best or worst.

Concrete resume? Really?

Still you've gotta give the guy credit for trying given he even chiselled all the content!

Bud Light or Lite?

For an agency with supremely high creative standards this Bud Light campaign is definitely sub-par for W+K London.

But hey we can't all be on our A-Game every day.

Anyway years ago a friend went to the US on hols and rented a car. To ensure he stayed on the right side of the breathalyser he drank Bud Light.

But for some strange reason he kept feeling a bit drunk.

Eventually he read the lable on the back of the bottle and found out the beer was not light as we know it - low alcohol - but low on carbs and calories.

Fortunately he never got pulled over while driving!

Visualise This



     

This video landed in my inbox last week but I only got around to watching it today. Now I'm annoyed I never watched it last week. So good!

No more changes!

The general public would probably have no idea what this ad is all about.

But ask anyone (and I do mean anyone) in adland and they'll know exactly what it means.

Sadly it's a concept not an actual ad.

But kudos to the man behind it Andrii Mishchenko.

Dave Trott gets drunk



A friend in New Zealand shared this on Facebook the other day. It is a great story from one of my adland heroes. Enjoy!

Remember Socialcam?

I was reminded of this social media exchange this morning when it turned up as a screenshot in a text message.

To be honest I can't even recall what Socialcam is or was.

Instagram however is now pretty much omnipresent.

Proving yet again that picking a winner in the tech innovation wars is never as easy as it looks.

Fiat 500 is forever young



The Fiat 500 or Bambino as it's affectionally known is one of my all time favourite cars.

It says Italy to me like no other car.

I once went out with a girl who drove one.

My wife currently drives one.

And on my recent holiday in Italy I rented one for a week in Sicily.

Happy 60th birthday Bambino. You're a timeless beauty.
