Sprechen Sie Englisch?

i'm sick of seeing wall street institute school of english ads on the m├ętro with someone with a union jack or an american flag on their tongue. they're crap. if i wanted to learn english i wouldn't have come to paris!!! that being said, and the fact that i'm clearly not their target audience, it's still refreshing to see a different take on foreign language learning advertising.

hubba hubba

mmm... moleskine bags. contemplating that line between need and want. great bit of stop-frame also.

iPhone card

an iPhone birthday card i designed. it was hand drawn and then scanned in and photoshopped although i maybe went a little far with the photoshoppery as it's lost some of its hand-made feel (which comes across better in print). the card had a flap on the inside where we put the donations towards jean-yves' iPhone birthday present and was cropped finely to avoid a chunky white border. applications, as well as the classics, include poker and birthday cake.

happy easter!

buy a one off egg for a good cause: www.eastern-eggs.com

like a laser cutter but an egg painter. what's not to love about CAM? the video of it being done appeals to my
"how things are made" fascination.

Bacardi: "Manifesto"

great mix of aesthetics, i particularly like "fighting the little white headphones" which i'm guessing apple got huffy about because it's changed to just "headphones" in the youtube copy of the ad.

locks and socks

hi-i made a turban

i made a turban, i will be sporting it in public.

facebook ad space

i was thinking, with a bit of photo resizing and self-tagging, why not use the images at the top of my profile as a personal ad space.

plaque board

a rough idea for an oral b electric toothbrush ad. obviously font, plaque colour, photoshoppery etc. (everything) would need work. i want the text not to be too legible and for the brush to be cleaning from behind the plaque but to stand out clearer. as i say, it's just illustrating an idea.

i'm a fan of ads without taglines and logos. i think the brush speaks for itself but incase it doesn't i stuck another logo on.

take 'em off

nothing more pretentious than sunglasses on the tube. the only exception (apart from blindness) is a horrible horrible hangover, the kind where flourescent lighting makes your head feel it has been squeezed into a pea. that's allowed.

a beautifully animated ad for Sidaction to show how our money goes towards helping the fight against AIDS
