The year I discovered Sagmeister

Dave Dye

As much as the endless blogs with ‘stuff’ – read nice images of new designs (this site included) – are great to source and view – blogs that offer insight and knowledge into the design arena are really a cut above. Johnson Banks and Love are fantastic (off the top of my head) and now adding Dave Dye to that. Having never really got into the advertising scene I have to admit I have not heard of him before –  found via @davetrott feed – this is a fantastic blog of a great creative ideas and features concepts, ideas, executions that he has produced over his career…

Nike – W+K Amsterdam

Human Printing Press for Nike by Wieden and Kennedy Amsterdam. Elaborate, creative but compared to other W+K/Nike work – I am not too sure.

‘The idea behind the ad ‘The strategy behind the film is ambitious: a desire to inspire Turkish sports fans not just to watch their favourite sports on TV but actually get out and participate themselves. To do this, the agency turned to a number of Turkish sports stars, including footballers Burak Yilmaz and Enes Ünal, to use their skills to help create an unusual poster for fans.’

‘The machines in the film took around three weeks to create, and then the whole thing was shot over two days in a massive warehouse outside Istanbul.’

Seen via @stbridelibraryCreative Review’s Ad of the week have an interview with the creatives behind the campaign – words and imagery CR.

Organic Milk by Zone

Great ad I have seen at my train station – for Organic Milk created by Zone.

‘Organic Milk Suppliers Co-operative (OMSCo) has announced (back in October 2012) the launch of a £1m creative campaign, created by Zone, to raise awareness of the benefits of organic milk and organic dairy farming.’ Quote taken from The Drum.

Converse

Converse’s latest ad campaign – SHOES ARE BORING WEAR SNEAKERS – is pretty special. Love the photography and overall feel of this work. Quite hard to find much information about the designers or photographer – possibly put together by Amplify?
