Art & Copy

Art & Copy

ART & COPY, Directed by Doug Pray (SURFWISE, HYPE!, SCRATCH), reveals the stories of eleven people you’ve never met who’ve affected your life – providing a window into the creative process of some of the most influential advertising visionaries of our time and their iconic campaigns, including Lee Clow (Apple Computer 1984, and today’s iPod); Dan Wieden (“Just Do It”); Phyllis K. Robinson (who invented the “me generation” with Clairol); Hal Riney (who helped President Reagan get re-elected); and George Lois (who saved MTV and launched Tommy Hilfiger overnight). It made it’s World Premier at Sundance this year and is screening at Hot Docs in May. Can’t wait to watch it. Thanks Doug. Posted by Josefina.

Simpsons spoofs adidas Houseparty

Hello and welcome to the First Fuzzy Post on Glossy. Knowing how much Glossy loved Nima Nourizadeh’s adidas Houseparty we thought we’d share this new Simpsons spoof for Sky television that just makes us wanna get up on the dancefloor, shake our milk and bring all the boys to the yard. We could teach you, but we’d have to charge. Posted by Fuzzy.

Glossy Going Away

Glossy Going Away

Tomorrow I leave to take my first time off, other than Christmas, since I launched glossy in April 2006 (gasp – I know). I’m off to southern Sri Lanka with Trip Canada and Developing World Connections to build houses for tsunami victims. Words can not express how excited I am about the experience that awaits me. I will not be updating glossy while I’m away, but three guest bloggers are very kindly stepping in (the first guest post is below). Upon my return, I’ll be sure to post pictures from my trip, and perhaps video too as Mr. Glossy got me a fancy new Kodak Zi6. Photo courtesy of Amalie Bruun, who went on this excursion last year and who recruited me to go with her this year. xo

Super Chameleon

Posted March 25, 2009

Super Chameleon

Super Chameleon is the latest in the Never Hide film series for Ray-Ban. As a child I spent most of my time catching frogs and salamanders (I always returned them to where I found them unharmed), so I love that the hero in this spot is a chameleon. And although it’s still unseasonably cold in Toronto, the vibrant colours in this spot remind me that spring is on its way (one would hope). Agency is Cutwater, San Francisco. Music is “Eat My Bear” by YUKSEK. Not sure who directed.

New Boards'

When I went to the Boards site yesterday, I actually checked my browser because I thought I had loaded the wrong page. It was not the case. Boards launched their new site yesterday and I just didn’t recognize it at first. Check it out. It’s nice.

World Water Week Canada

Posted March 24, 2009

World Water Week Canada

The Tap Project is an amazing fundraising initiative for UNICEF and I give kudos to Droga5 for coming up with the idea. But every year (this year & last) I’m
extremely disappointed about how it’s executed in Canada. Last year (I believe) only the Cara Foods group of restaurants were involved and this year it’s the Keg and this pathetically short list of other restaurants across Canada (only one restaurant besides the Kegs in Toronto – seriously?). The Tap Project was headed up in Canada by Taxi last year and byDue North this year (both pro bono). I really wish that such an important cause could be better promoted and embraced in Canada. It saddens me that it is not. See a story in today’s Marketing on the campaign. You can donate here (I did).

Phish in space and Phish in the sky

Phish in space and Phish in the sky

The latest from Blip Boutique is these two videos to promote Phish’s upcoming summer tour. “The videos needed to be huge spectacles that would speak to the extremely active online fan base and create a viral sensation”, says Blip CD James Frost. Blip Boutique decided to create both videos based on live events on a monumental scale that would garner attention and stir debate about the question “is it really real?” The first, released in January, captured a team of five sky writing airplanes over Southern California. The second, released March 17th, reversed the spectacle. The announcement was painted on the ground, on a property in Georgetown, Texas and captured from the sky by way of aerial photography. More info on the spots and how they were made is posted here. Some fan discussion is posted here.

Peter Saville on what inspires him

Peter Saville was interviewed at the D&AD on March 12 – god I wish I could have been there. The next best thing to being there (besides having his babies) is to watch the videos of the Q&A with him. They are posted here on Vimeo. Found via Creative Review’s blog.
