NIKE FOOTBALL ///

This has been everywhere and if you’ve been avoiding it you should just quit it and watch. The new spot for Nike Football (yes, of course it’s soccer, but you knew that already didn’t you) by W+K Amsterdam is inspiring, entertaining and best of all, reminds us why the world loves this game so much....

CHRIS STRONG ///

I wish I could come up with some more info on Chris Strong, all I can tell you is he’s based out of Chi-town and has a ridiculously good portfolio of photographic work.

NIKE PAPER BATTLEFIELD ///

I love this campaign for Nike that McCann Hong Kong did. It’s amazing how such a simple technique of monotone images just being overprinted can create such an exciting and dynamic illustration.

FOOD FLAGS ///

This is pretty old, but I still love it. “An advertising agency has come up with a campaign to promote the Sydney International Food Festival: flags made from food typical of each country. The flag of Italy is made of basil, pasta and tomatoes.”

HANK WILLIS THOMAS ///

Hank Willis Thomas is an artist whose work explores race and class in contemporary advertising. There are some pretty wild pieces that really make you think.

UNICEF ADS ///

I just came across these Unicef ads while doing some research.. dont know how old they are, but i think they are pretty interesting and quite effective….

W+K RADIO ///

Famed ad agency Wieden + Kenendy recently launched their own online radio station, W+K Radio. The radio project hopes to “keep the agency culture woven tight”, something that may be easier said than done being that the agency has seven global offices on three different continents. They appear to has some pretty cool programming and...
