Food for thought

This is a great microsite/advergame for the British Heart Foundation. They're aim is to alert kids about the effects that junk food has on their health. Very cool graphics for a worthy cause.

Heinz Salad Cream: Pourable Sunshine

Don't know if you guys have seen this advert before. I haven't, and I love it, it's has such a good feel to it, great song, great look, I almost feel like eating salad cream even if I don't like it.

We're used to seeing great work for Harvey Nichols. what do you think of these ones?

No one said it was going to be easy

Great campaign for the One Show. I'm sure anyone in the creative department is going to relate to the situations. I sure can.

I don't think this Diesel campaign is as good as some of the previous, however, as usual the photography and production is pretty good. Let me know your thoughts on this campaign. Is the formula loosing its charm?

Sorry for the lack of posting lately guys, I've been in London for the last few days, in a very much needed holiday, and in search of some new inspiration.
I start off with something some of you might already know about. It's new to me and I hope new to quite a few readers, it's called Musicovery, and basically it's an interactive digital radio website. You can choose the type of music, the decade, your mood, etc, and based on that they make a selection of tunes for you to listen. Definitely worth checking it out!

Labatt Ice: Keep Warm

I have never seen this ad, but it's obviously old, probably from the 80's or 70's. However I could see this ad being used to sell todays "cool" beers, of course it would need some updating. I like the serious tone mixed with the ridiculousness of the situations. What do you guys think?

Ford EcoSport

I find this ad quite funny, it's not amazing but it is still worth watching.
