The creative dept

Great quote from Luke Sullivan the author of one of the best adland books I've ever read - Hey, Whipple, Squeeze This.

Fat finger typing

As someone who often has to write emails on the go I can't tell you how much I love the look of the TextBlade.

Obviously there's nothing new about a fold up or portable keyboard. But I've never seen one as slick as this.

Beware the garlic sauce

An idea so damn obvious you gotta wonder why nobody has done it before.

Anyone know who created it?

Snickers on Valentines Day?

Maybe I've been been busy these last few weeks but I can't recollect seeing any fun Valentines Day ads or stunts.

And whilst this Snickers campaign from BBDO NYC didn't have me laughing out loud it did provoke a wry smile.

If Carlsberg made supermarkets

Man this made me laugh. A supermarket that actually is super. If only Carlsberg really did make them...

Velocita is lighter than air

Been a while since I showcased some work from one of my favourite agencies - Love from Manchester.

What you're looking at in the pic above is their box design for a new lightweight football boot. The Velocita.

It's apparently the lightest boot on the market. At least it is for this week anyway!

The box design is pure genius.

Clear plastic with the boot suspended from the lid of the box.

It quite literally looks like it's floating on air.

Best of all is when you lift the lid of the box and the shoes inadvertantly lift with it.

Magic. Don't you think?

Small things - Big difference

I'm not familiar with the brand Vertu. I think it's a mobile phone for the upwardly mobile.

Although according to this UK billboard it may be a phone for rather dull people.

Then again perhaps not.

Brand or product?
