Happy New Year

Out with the old, in with the new. I’m looking forward to the new decade and writing 2010 looks so sci-fi. I love it. Wishing all the best to everyone.

Posted December 23, 2009

JWT's

Here’s a final holiday greeting before I pack it in for the holidays. This one is a very cute little film created by Blacklist’s againstallodds for JWT.

I’m officially off now for the holidays (yay!). I won’t be updating again until the new year. Wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas & all the best for 2010.

Biscuit Filmworks

Biscuit Filmworks

Before I close down for the holidays, I’m in LA for a couple of days visiting clients. I stopped by Biscuit Filmworks yesterday to check out their new space. Okay, it’s not that new, as they moved in almost a year ago, but it’s the first time I’ve visited them their gorgeous new digs. The last time I saw this space, it was an empty warehouse where their Xmas party was held in 2007. Check it out.

Lunch with James Frost

Lunch with James Frost

I had lunch yesterday with James Frost at the wonderfully kitchy 101 Coffee Shop in Hollywood. I absolutely love how much kitch there is in LA – I digress. James Frost directed the House of Cards video for Radiohead and years back he also directed Coldplay’s Yellow (among many others). If you are in London over the next few months, I encourage you to go the V&A for the Decode: Digital Design Sensations exhibit in which includes the Radiohead House of Card video.

Oh and I apologize that the pic I took of James is a little soft – taken by iPhone. But at least it doesn’t make him look like a blind man, not that there is anything wrong with that, like this pic in Nylon magazine (sorry James, couldn’t resist). Great article though.

Zig’s Jingle Jam

Zig's Jingle Jam

Continuing on with the festive cheer, here’s Zig’s Jingle Jam – a site where you combine different carolers create your own unique version of Jingle Bells. The Crooner mixes nicely in with the Victorian Caroler. The Jingles Cats are pretty cool too.

New Contagious / Most Contagious

New Contagious / Most Contagious

I always look forward to seeing Contagious Magazine’s yearly Most Contagious. This year, their list includes the most contagious ideas in everything from design to branded applications, from technology to real time media. While you are downloading it (do it) be sure to spend some time checking out their newly designed site (something I have to get on in the new year – glossy 2.0 is on its way).
