Frustratingly this advert is growing on me, there's just something about those kids' faces. Although I'm suggesting Cadbury change it to 'a glass and a half full of weird', I'm trying to stay neutral and professional but I'd like to draw your attention to Daito Manabe's videos that were featured on Boooooom last October. Spot the difference.

Follow instructions to see how good you are at discerning differences in hue, I scored a respectable 28. 0 is perfect. The image above shows my attempt and the analysis, I have more trouble with the blue/green part of the spectrum. Bad news for a Bowerbird who collects blue objects I suppose.

Thank God I'm not offended by this little advert for booze. Part of a series that continue the Yorkie 'it's not for girls' attitude, made me chuckle, in all these days of doom and gloom, some gender home truths aren't the end of the world really, are they? Nice infographics incidentally.

From I believe in adv
The future of sketchbooks? I Love Sketch is a whole lot of clever technology, but how much room is there for happy accidents? This is not for me, but I can appreciate this very impressive demo and the possibilities it could mean for, say, product designers or architects.
Thanks to Dez for the link.
A powerful advert, which is just the right balance of wit, fear, and information. Such an unusual spin, really made me take note, the use of David Mitchell as voice over is inspired too. Now that I think about it, the series of FRANK adverts are pretty memorable, remember the brain warehouse one?

Brushes application on iPhone iPod touch. Clever. There's even a Flickr group, and they are impressive, well some of them atleast.
Some beautiful images created using this app, over at flip flop flyin'.
noun ( pl. tableaux |ˌtaˈblōz|)
a group of models or motionless figures representing a scene from a story or from history; a tableau vivant.
It is also a beautiful table I was drawn to in Spitalfields Market's Elemental, bit of a hefty price tag attached to it, it contains antique letter press blocks set in resin. It is a beautiful and unique piece of typographic history, it's also in the SALE so if anyone has a spare £4k and a generous nature, please get in touch.
I would also like to heap praises on Jim Stoddart, the art director of Penguin Press for an impassioned yet calm, witty and truly knowledgeable talk that made me want to join the ranks of Penguin Towers even more. Okay, I'll stop gushing now.
Overview of the talk:
PENGUIN COVERS THEN AND NOW
Over the decades Penguin has sustained a reputation for generating innovative and influential cover designs as seen in the work of Alan Aldridge in the 1960s. In this cross generational discussion, celebrated Penguin designer David Pelham and former Penguin editor Judith Burnley will talk about the factors behind their particular Penguin heyday to be compared with recent achievements and future direction described by current Art Director Jim Stoddart.

Hurrah! The new Digit website is up and running, we've had a brand overhaul, introducing the Digit D, it'll be cropping up quite a lot.
Featured above is the National Gallery Grand Tour, this project was my baby, under the brilliant art direction of Andrew Dean, it even picked up a D&AD Black Pencil last year. My illustrations were used in the site, print, adverts and merchandise.
My role has grown recently at Digit so some of my copy writing skills make a small appearance here too.
The landing page changes dependent upon the time of day, so check back in to see how it differs.

I'm fairly smitten with the painterly talent of Olivier Tallac, I would love to see some of this animated it has such a vivacious quality, I was sucked into his website, hope you like it too.
Found via monstermunch.
I have yet to see this advert on tv, but I have just spotted it over on Scamp's blog and had to post it too. Comparethemarket.com have created a wonderful spoof site to mirror it's own and drive custom back to themselves. However it's win-win for them because if you stay on comparethemeerkat.com you are actually learning how to use it's doppelganger's site too.
10/10 to the copywriters, Aleksandr is a superb character and there are some very clever details woven in to the site too.
