a strong look

the french football team have a new away kit. in true french style it's being taken very seriously and has been photographed by karl lagerfeld. what next? a leetle beret? it's actually quite endearing to see the team running onto the pitch in their marinières. i suggest they get the rugby team into them next to create a new jean-paul gaultier ad.

an illustration of an idea i had a while back when i went to the grande mosquée's turkish baths.

so fresh and so clean clean

some simple effective advertising from the homeland. i'm always a fan of graphic, tag-line-free print. other twinkle related graphics i like here

this is an ad for canal+, a tv channel in france. the screen writer of canal+ explains to the husband of the girl he's in 'n' outing with what he's doing in their wardrobe. i think it's wonderfully done, well cast and witty.
"incredible isn't it hunny?"
"yeah, completely crazy..."

i'm a creative because

I made a certificate that says so

not sure where this idea came from. one of those images that came to me just before i went to sleep and as michel gondry once said; you should try to realise every idea that you have (i'm paraphrasing...)
it probably has something to do with everyone cashing in on the william and kate wedding with tacky commemorative plates, and not so tacky
saw this the other day: http://www.camproyale.co.uk/ i think some people need to take a deep breath and calm down

women's day

happy international women's/pancake/tues day. i wonder if the queen's got her batter stirred up as i have.

from one old bag to another (so that's why she mentioned the queen), this is one of the elusive tracey emin for longchamp bags on show at the v&a. it's a photo i took a while back but it seemed appropriate for today.

i'm off to read some simone de beauvoir and scoff on a pancake. have a nice day y'all

i'd seen their work before on E4 but didn't know who they were. some of the most innovative shorts i've seen since Harmar Superstar

Nowadays everybody wanna talk like they got something to say...

hot spice

a great ad from weiden and kennedy, the way it's shot reminds me a little of one of my favourite ads of all time; the trident soft mess with your head campaign. great re-branding for something that reminds me of my granddad.
