Celebrating Your Craft With Craft Beer

Posted October 22, 2014

Beer and advertising – they go very well together. As does bourbon and advertising, wine and advertising, tequila and advertising…you get the idea.

With the Lotus Awards no longer taking place in Vancouver, the Canadian west coast advertising community was in need of a new event to celebrate and appreciate their labours. With this in mind, the Beer & Idea Appreciation Society was created.

The first gathering will take place on Wednesday, November 12 at the new Steel Toad Brewery in Vancouver. At the event they’ll be playing a reel of everyone’s work on a 19-foot projection screen that will be in HD. There won’t be any awards given out. Just love and respect for creativity.

Any company, artist or freelancer/independent creative person attending can submit up to three pieces to be shown. Static images will show very well, but they’ll also accept video files up to 60 seconds long. Send your work to beerandideas@gmail.com by Friday, October 24th.

More info can be found on the Eventbrite ticket page, or on the Society’s Facebook page. Sounds fun. Have a great time Vancouver!

Ikea Halloween

YouTube Preview Image

I have a feeling that Halloween isn’t big in Sweden, but I do like a little Kubrick-inspired spot.

BBH Asia Pacific pays hommage to The Shining in their latest for Ikea. Side note – being at Ikea on a busy Saturday can make you feel like you are in a horror film. Found via Creativity.

Unfinished Billboard

Posted October 15, 2014

I like a simple yet clever ad execution and this is just that.

The line, “Have a break. Have a KitKat,” was created in 1958 by J. Walter Thompson’s Donald Gilles. Fifty-six years later, JWT London has found a fun new way to illustrate the line—with a half-finished billboard. Nicely done.

Scooped from AdFreak.

The Transcend3 team is pleased to announce the addition of Lisa McCoy as co-creative director. The Toronto-based communications agency is excited to benefit from the breadth of knowledge about the English Canadian market she brings. McCoy has already put her talents on display in helping develop the agency’s new campaign for Lycée Français de Toronto, a school based in France that’s found a home in Toronto. With McCoy on board, the agency’s unique bilingual and tri-cultural background in one senior creative team — boasting a deep and ongoing knowledge of English Canada, Quebec and France — has been strengthened even more.

I love a visually-driven spot that’s set to a great soundtrack (that’s a Delphonics cover by Mischa ‘Book’ Chillak featuring Esthero). I also love Toronto and happy to see it showcased in all its glory.

To celebrate the 2015 Pan Am Games in Toronto, Ontario Tourism has launched this epic spot, “Invade”. It’s created by FCB Toronto, directed by Untitled Films‘ Phil Brown, edited by Marc Langley at Rooster Post, and features music and sound design by Grayson Matthews.

Full credits.
