Our neighbours from the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden have “posted” on their window two links: one for the official museum website, and another link to the Flickr group Show us your suburbia.

By the window

Show us your suburbia is a photographic competition. I really like the way they’re using Flickr to manage it.

New JWT London website

December 23, 2008

JWT new website

After a while, JWT London finally released their brand new website. It’s super-animated (flash), white, clean and minimalist…

I spend about 10 minutes around the website (actually more than this), interacting, clicking on absolutely everything, doing my personal and picky QA. The first thing I’ve noticed is the nonexistence of an accessible version (or even an accessible message insisting that you should install the flash player). Basically, if you don’t have flash installed, or an active JavaScript, all you can see is a copyrighted white window… hummm…

There is also a customisable feature on the top right corner of the page, where you can choose between eight very-very-very cute “London related” icons:

jwt-icons

The thing is: as soon as I change the icon, I can’t change it back. Maybe it’s supposed to behave this way, but I think it’s a bug…

Content wise, the website is perfect. They’ve chosen five of their best campaigns (including the very good “point of view” HSBC campaign that remembers me Heathrow Airport, and the “epic” Smirnoff campaign)  that are more than enough to see and understand the agency capabilities. If you have nothing else to do and want to spend the day watching all the agency’s work, just go to the showreel and… Have fun 😉

Print design is easy

November 18, 2008

madethought

We all know how easy print design is, which is why we chose the more interesting and challenging digital route. How ever I have to give it up for Made Thought because they produce some pretty swanky print work!

Founded by Ben Parker and Paul Austin eight years ago, these guys have been busy churning out a lot of good work for some impressive clients. They have worked for MTV, Yves Saint Laurent, Nokia, The Mill, Adidas and many other hawt brands. In 2004 they were awarded ‘Graphic Designers of the Year’ by Blueprint Magazine.

Somebody Elses Phone

October 22, 2008

Wieden + Kennedy in London have launched this campaign for Nokia which allows the users to look through a made up persons phone. These made up people also have Facebook pages if you would like to get more personal with them or whoever does copy-writing for Wieden + Kennedy. The campaign has a really nice Group 94ish design which I really like however personally i simply dont care enough abot other people especiall made up ones to spend ages going to the vast librarys of content. I do appreciate that you can follow a little story about theese people which eventualy will accumulate with them having to take a dificult decission.

Apperantly there’s a bit of a question mark over this campaign as nobody’s sure if it’s another Nokia Game in the vein of Sisu & Mika or 20 lives. The ARGers are all over it like a tramp’s coat just in case though – forums have been set up transcribing all the texts and FB entries waiting for the game to begin (if it is one).

Read about nokia games on Wiki http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nokia_Game

Visit the campaign Link

From the creators:

“Imagine finding a phone that belongs to somebody else; filled with personal text messages, contacts, diary entries, photos, voicemails and private video clips. It’s like having a window into somebody’s entire life. Would you be tempted to look through it?

This question is at the heart of our new campaign for Nokia. Inspired by the evolved role mobile phones play in our lives, the campaign invites the audience to explore the lives of three characters – Anna, Jade and Luca –  in intimate detail, in real time, through their Nokia 7610 handsets…” read more at Welcome to otimism (Wieden + Kennedy blog).
