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…

Stuff from the loft – Dave Dye – ‘Assorted ephemera from solving problems, creating stuff & making things.’

Johnnie Walker Black Label ‘Symphony’ – Love

Second of the night of Love’s work for Johnnie Walker (Black Label). This creative – print ad and films are ‘being launched this month (Dec 2013) in China’. Ditto the 1st post. Work is featured on Whisky Intelligence – full press release from what I can gather – and Love’s own blog.

‘Filmed in Bangkok [by Jake Scott], the advert sets out to capture the big bold flavours…and features a “symphony” of exploding fruits, spices, flower petals and billowing smoke. The iconic Striding Man – introduced by LOVE as a contemporary character last year – is at the heart of the narrative once again.’

Johnnie Walker: Where Flavour is King – Love

A little bit of a Love in – (forgive the pun)… as a designer I think it is great that not only do they create wonderful work but also are happy to share the work that goes into the ‘behind the scenes’ of the shoots (film/photography) as well…

First up – Love’s creative for the Johnnie Walker campaign – ‘Where Flavour is King’. In their words ‘While other Scotch whiskies obsess about age-old age statements or tartan and toffee provenance stories, this global campaign positions Johnnie Walker as the undisputed king of flavour.’ More imagery and words on the link…

Umbro HQ – Love

A terribly lazy post, seen via What Makes Us in my usual daily/weekly sweep of favourite blog links…

Really lovely work from Love, (based in Manchester) for Umbro HQ, signage + generally making the work place a space to  ‘inspire and motivate’. Images via Love.

A little extra is that Love has a blog as well
