Head Gear for the Detroit Institute of Arts

Head Gear for the Detroit Institute of Arts

Head Gear Animation has just completed two follow-up spots to their 2007 campaign for the rebrand of the Detroit Institute of Arts. The two new spots are Son of Hatman and Thinker. “The look is comprised of simple black and white drawings, cel-animated and composited in After Effects and was developed to appeal to a very broad audience…so, sophisticated but not elitist, artful yet droll. Basically, come to the museum to get inspired people!” Says Head Gear director Julian Grey. Watch the 2007 and 2008 spots on the Head Gear site here. Full credits for this year’s campaign are here.

Save the Sharks

Save the Sharks

I recently saw the Canadian documentary Sharkwater, and until then, I was not aware that sharks were facing extinction. I was happy to see this great creative for the SharkProject out of Y&R Frankfurt. The SharkProject is an initiative to raise awareness about the threat of shark extinction, centered on “finning” – a practice in which the shark is caught, their fins cut off and the rest of the animal thrown back to the sea. View the amazing mailer here. Scooped from advertising/design goodness.

World’s Biggest Beach Ball

World's Biggest Beach Ball

Part TV commercial shoot and part PR stunt, this past Sunday Carnival Cruise Lines dropped the world’s biggest beach ball on to a Dallas street. The two three story-tall balls got in the Guiness Book of Records, on the news and there is a TV campaign to follow. There are rumors of another Carnival larger-than-life stunt happening later this week. CBS video is here (you’ll have to watch a show promo first).

Best Casket Commercial Ever

I have to agree with Make the Logo Bigger that this is the best casket commercial ever (I also cannot recall another one). Watch it. I laughed out loud.
