Shanghai World Expo, on the interwebs

May 4, 2010

The world EXPO, an international competition for attention through architecture, lighting, films and stories in what used to be docklands and shipyards. Shanghai spent more than $48 billion in preparing  the grounds for the EXPO that is more than what it cost to clean up Beijing. Now 1.7 million volunteers are working at the site guiding, securing and feeding the massive crowds.
For the first time there is now an online expo at
www.expo.cn with an incredibly annoying waterdrop character guiding you around. Each country is encouraged to make their own 3D walkthrough of their own pavilion.

We (m-l.no) have now worked for months on the Expo project where one of our many tasks has been to create the digital replica of the Norwegian Pavilion. Naturally we were eager to see what other countries had come up with, here is a collection of ome of the sites I found interesting:

Obviously, I would like to show you the site we made.

UK Pavilion

My favourite (of the remaining ones) is the UK Pavilion, a well made, stylish interactive walkthrough.
Also i really like the UK pavilion i whish the walktrhough offered even more pictures/close-ups of the inside of it.

Japan Industrial Paviljon

Was OK.

Japanese Pavillion

After an hour of looking for good ones this loading screen enthused me, but the site, I am afraid did not quite deliver the goods

http://pavilion.expo.cn/c1026/ssize/index.html

Israeli Pavillion

Seems to represent what these sites tend to look like.

Danish Pavillion

Shout out to our friends in Demark for a lovely logo and graphic profile, to bad this site uses PC only technology so I couldn’t look at it in all its glory, maybe you can?

Alta Bikes (now we can finally look like Shoreditch Twats over here too)

April 22, 2010

After moving to Norway I have been desperately trying to hold on to an ever fading image of some sort of east London hipster.
I’ve got my Raybans, a retro haircut, a suit jacket, blue jeans, white trainers and I have the story that used to live in Brick Lane (semi lie I lived at commercial road) , now in order to hold on to my image all I need is a fixed wheel bike!

That I will get here: http://www.altabikes.no/

Also read the definition of a Shoreditch Twat at Urban Dictionary

thanks to @edvard_b for potentially saving my cool (he found the Alta Bikes site).

In the realm of sexist advertising this is the first piece to catch my eye since the BMW premium selection used cars ad.

Although I found the BMW ad better, this one is still funny even though I am sure it wont get as much viral attention.

Know your memes. A Study of internet virals.

November 15, 2009

Picture 3

I came across this site; Know Your Memes. It is really good, and a must see for people wanting to understand the cause and origins of online virals. I had a good time this sunday going through all these mini dokumentaries (about 4 mins a piece), giving me the back story on virals such as; the keyboard cat, starwars kid, rickrolls, lolcats, numa numa etc. They also coverd some virals that I hadn’t caught on before, which was very interesting. But what I found truly interesting was when they explained how the market and the media tried to get in on the virals and make a profit, and how this affected the different virals. For example the Christan Bale Rant. This viral was heavily pushed by the media and thus peaking very quickly but then again fading away equally fast. This shows that in this example, for a viral to be long lasting it has to come from a more underground independent source.

A must see, for all online marketing people.

It is not technically impressive, or the most original website I’ve ever seen. I have worked with this overlapping images and depth of feel many times (Magnus remeber those army banners we did a t kerve?). The reson i love it is because its done so well, its super nice! The photography is awesome, the type is really nice its just a damn cool collage by it self as well as there is some nice interactivity. link

North Korean Beer Advert!

July 7, 2009

North Korea’s latest launch is not missiles, but a TV advertising campaign for a locally-brewed beer.

In a rare nod to commercial motives in the resolutely communist nation, the TV advert features a thirsty worker holding a mug of frothy beer.

Young women in traditional Korean dress are shown serving trays of beer to men in Western suits.

Billed as the “Pride of Pyongyang”, the advert promises drinkers that the beer will help ease stress.

“It represents the new look of Pyongyang,” the two-and-a-half minute advert says. “It will be a familiar part of our lives.”
